What Information Can be Found With a Phone Number

When you consider connecting the dots to create a picture, imagine your phone number as the dot that connects everything else they know about you.  Even if they have it all, it is up to you whether or not they have the dot with your phone number to complete the picture.phone hacker

All it takes to find everything is to just find that phone number connected to one of the many things we already know like your facebook account (which requires a phone number) or any shopping card from a corporate retailer you may have given your number to.  Do you still believe those corporations don’t sell or trade your private information?  Well even if you do, it doesn’t matter because they are all systematically hacked a bare minimum of every 3-5 years.

Any email you get for free is being picked off as we speak.  It doesn’t matter if you gave the provider any phone information or not.  All you have to do is reveal your phone number in the text of an email and boom!! Mission accomplished!!  Free emails mine everything that comes across your screen, including drafts.  Why do you think they always want you to “secure” your email account with a phone number?

If you have connected to an old friend or new business acquaintance by email or social media and given them your phone number in a message it is connecting you to that phone number and that media account.

It’s called the world wide WEB for a reason.  Everything you do is sucked into a giant computer and maintained for profit and micromanagement of the public.  A good researcher can take an unknown phone number and use cell towers to “pair” it with other devices already known to be in your name.  For example: a burner phone (see our article on burner phones https://privacyliving.com/2016/05/17/what-is-a-burner-phone-how-can-it-help-me/ ) can have its owner pegged pretty efficiently when it is continually detected near the same owner’s normal cell phone or other smart device.  This can include cars with smart devices embedded in them.  By detecting an unknown phone continually traveling to the same places and staying at the same address all night along with already known devices it is easy to deduce that you are the owner.

As you can see, being truly anonymous requires some serious work but it is possible.  You can always pick up a copy of “Disappear in 24 Hours” by Lonn E Wolfenstein if you want to do a total makeover.  The book is available at Brave New Books in Austin TX or can be ordered by clicking the products link at the top of this page.

The Death of Cash is Coming

Governments are always looking out for themselves first, and it’s the same old thing that has been going on for hundreds of years. The Indians recently did the same thing. They withdrew 86 percent of the currency in circulation, and they have now made it illegal to spend more than, I think it’s about $4,000 in any cash transaction. In France you cannot use more than, I think it’s a €1,000,”said Rogers in an interview with MacroVoices Podcast.

We’ve blogged on this topic before, but this issue is ready to boil over at any moment. And the scary part is that one day you will have cash, and the next day you won’t. It may happen overnight, literally! This is a scary thing because our financial privacy is at stake here. No one wants every transaction they make to be tracked and taxed. But thats what the governments of the world are trying to achieve. Total control.

The Cash Genocide Has Started

A currency genocide has begun world wide, and the first shot has been fired in India. This began in India just a few weeks ago, and may be spreading to the United States.

Citizens of India learned, with only a few hours’ notice, that their 500 and 1,000-rupee notes were no longer legal tender. Those are—or were—the country’s largest-denomination bills and the foundation of a huge underground economy. Now they’re just paper. The results were what you would expect: confusion, chaos, and fear. – Forbes.com [http://www.forbes.com/sites/patrickwwatson/2016/12/01/indias-demonetization-could-be-the-first-cash-domino-to-fall/#714a9eb713bb]

gold-money-warMost people still use cash for transactions, whether it be to buy a soda at a corner store, sell items at a garage sale or to purchase vegetables at a farmer’s market. Yet cash is now under fire from central banks worldwide. The banks don’t like cash because they cannot control it and tax it. So they feel they must get rid of it, and they make ridiculous excuses as to why they should get rid of cash: it’s too easily counterfeited, it’s part of the drug money laundering trade and many more excuses – all of which are absurd and without merit.

Former US Treasury Secretary Larry Summers published an article last week stating that “nothing in the Indian experience gives us pause in recommending that no more large notes be created in the United States, Europe, and around the world. In other words, despite the India chaos, Summers thinks we should still curtail the $100 bill.” – Sovereignman.com

Imagine what it would be like if we couldn’t use the $50 or $100 bills. Despite what the talking head economists say, inflation is rampant in the US. Anyone who’s been buying bread and milk for the last 10 years or more can tell you the price is much higher now then it was then. This is inflation at it’s core. The need for larger bills has never been higher with inflation chipping away at our incomes, yet the banks want to get rid of cash. It’s madness!

America has always been about freedom. Freedom of religion, freedom to speak out and be represented, and economic freedom. Yet our freedoms truly are under fire every day. What will you do to protect your freedoms?

Is Your Job Strong Enough For the After-Election Depression?

dirty job worker

We are living in uncertain times as you know, and we all must all work together to hold the frayed ends of humanity together as evil threatens to tear us apart.  Today my contribution to you is a reminder that you need to secure a stable business for yourself to fall back on if and when your “steady job” gets converted to a lay off.  This is a real threat to all and I recommend sharing this message to all.  This election is going to have serious consequences even if your favorite candidate wins.

If Hillary Wins

Unfortunately the Libertarian and Green parties don’t have a chance so you can think what you want there.   Back here in reality we have 2 real possibilities for president.  If Clinton wins you can expect at minimum 4 years of the same thing we had for the past 8, but there is a factor I haven’t seen mentioned anywhere else.  Donald Trump has been setting up his run for President for a long time.  He may have some overseas companies but many of the more than 500 companies he owns are right here in America.  If Clinton wins, Trump will not feel welcome in America and he will promptly move as many of his companies overseas.  The ones that stay (like his Hotels) will do what you can imagine: They will bring in cheaper “undocumented” labor.  This is bad for you and all other current US residents.  It could start a new Great Depression.

If Trump Wins

On the other hand, a Trump win will not be so squeaky clean either.  While I think Trump is hands down the better option we all have to consider that there are some very powerful people that really hate the ideas of America, freedom, and Capitalism.  They are more in love with wealth re-distribution and “governing” the people.  If Trump wins, these people will pull every dirty trick in the book to bring down America under Trump’s watch.  They will pull their businesses out of America and they will try to hurt the job market so that John Q Public suffers and when they complain, the trouble makers will be right there to say “See we tried to warn you about Trump”.  This could be a manufactured Great Depression.  Meanwhile, what will you be doing to provide for your family?

How to Provide in Crisis

It all leads back to this:  You must find an income source that will stand strong in the face of depression.  In his book “How to Survive the End of the World as We Know it”, James Wesley Rawles advises that you must consider something others won’t want to do.  Dangerous, dirty or hard is what Rawles suggests.  I personally recommend dirty or hard but not too dangerous.  In the world we live in today an OSHA official might declare any job dangerous but that isn’t what I mean.  Just don’t take huge safety risks in your second career.  I am a living testament to dangerous jobs.  It is how I survived for a long time and I have the scars to prove it.  In a dangerous job you can’t make any income or provide for your family if you get hurt, so take a hard or dirty job.  Rawles suggests something to the effect of a septic pump service but also suggests an internet/ mail order business if you are organized.

The beauty of starting your business is that you can get it going and have it running if you lose your job. However, if you really can’t run a business, your last resort would be to get a job doing one of those jobs that nobody likes for a paycheck.  My advice is to get moving on that right now.  You don’t want to be looking for a job when everybody else gets laid off.  Rawles suggests things like sanitation workers or sewer technicians.  Dirty jobs but while everyone else is starving you will be bringing home a check.  The biggest thing you need to understand is you need to get moving on this one today.

Be sure to share this article with the people you care about. (or the people you know may be trying to mooch off of you when things go bad).

 

 

Where Do You Store Gold If You Don’t Trust The Bank?

Is Texas building a private gold repository? It may be in the works already….

“Texans as a group are some of the largest gold buyers in the world,” said Saab, chief operating officer of the company. “The only options they have to store it right now are in a bank or their home.”

Saab’s company, one of many interested in being involved with the state’s plan to create a depository, proposes building a potentially $20 million facility — with no Texas tax dollars — on 40 acres of land it has in Shiner, about 250 miles south of Fort Worth.

Plans for such a depository, where Texans could store their gold and precious metals, have been in the works since state Rep. Giovanni Capriglione, R-Southlake, asked lawmakers to create the facility last year.

Under the new Texas law, the comptroller’s office is working to create the state’s first bullion depository — which could hold deposits of gold and other precious metals from financial institutions, cities, school districts, businesses, individuals and countries — at a location yet to be determined.

How to Create False Readings on Metal Detectors

Imagine you have an emergency and have to leave town or a medical emergency and have to go to the hospital.  What if some jerk with a metal detector gets the idea to search your yard while you and your family are preoccupied and out of contact??

First of all don’t bury your treasures anywhere a novice (or professional for that matter) metal detector operator can get to them.  Hobbyists and others looking for something totally different all the time find rich caches just by accident.  So don’t think you are wise by burying something in your yard.

The point here is to give these creeps a run for their money if they want to trespass on your land and try to steal.  My advice here is simple.  You should give them something to do.  At random times you should be burying a can or two in your yard.  Just vary the locations and if you have a spot you think a treasure hunter may be looking put a can there.  Everybody should have cans that they have after eating canned goods but you can also change things up a bit by using random pieces of metal like a short piece of pipe or a jar full of nuts and bolts.  The more random things you use, the more it will confuse sophisticated metal detectors that will sometimes indicate what lies beneath the surface.

For those experienced, sophisticated detectors that may even have sonar detection abilities, you may want to try filling your cans with different types of junk.  Perhaps you could fill one can with something that would resemble coins or a weapon.  This will get them all excited and they will waste their time digging up the junk!  Meanwhile they will get nothing and you will get all the laughs!!!

Austrian Constitutional Right To Pay Cash

Check out the latest privacy issue regarding cash in Arnold Schwarzenegger’s home country of Austria. What a novel idea!

“Austrians should have the constitutional right to use cash to protect their privacy, Deputy Economy Minister Harald Mahrer said, as the European Union considers curbing the use of banknotes and coins.

“We don’t want someone to be able to track digitally what we buy, eat and drink, what books we read and what movies we watch,” Mahrer said on Austrian public radio station Oe1. “We will fight everywhere against rules” including caps on cash purchases, he said.” – Bloomberg News

cash moneyNo one should ever think it’s okay to allow themselves to be tracked, monitored or spied upon. Freedom to communicate, share and congregate are inalienable rights which were enshrined in our Bill of Rights by our Forefathers here in the USA.

An interesting side note: It should also be noted that the Austrian School of Economics was founded in 1871. Many of it’s ideas which fly in the face of the modern Keynesian ideas of spend and borrow the way out of debt and economic crisis are still alive and well in the Libertarian mind. Liberty and Freedom live!

It’s sad to say, but ideas that once were exclusive to the US, such as freedom and liberty, now flourish in a bigger way in burgeoning countries across the world.
