In recent years, those on the right in the political scene have become very much aware of the atmosphere of censorship and de-platforming. It is getting hard to keep track of who has been tossed off YouTube, Patreon, and various other platforms. Those who are remaining have experienced intentional algorithm changes which have led to less views and subscribers, making their continuous growth and audience building nearly impossible.
This mostly was expected, and for those with thick skin and some ingenuity kept driving on even despite “demonetization” of certain channels and videos. No mind, content creators can always come up with new ways to make money off content: with sponsors, subscriptions, or selling content, right? Wrong, now the banking services and payment processors are denying services to public dissidents. Just to name a few who have been banned from using PayPal; Red Ice’s Lana Lokteff and Henrik Palmgren, Faith Goldy, Richard Spencer, and Alex Jones. The payment processor, Striker, denied its services to the free speech social media service, Gab, disguising the reasoning as being “too much porn on the site.” … As if there isn’t porn on Twitter.
What is even more alarming is Chase Banks’s de-banking of Enrique Tarrio, and the bank’s statements to Project Veritas, who were undercover, saying “we don’t do business with ‘those types.’” There is also the more widely publicized refusal of services from Bank of America to gun stores or gun manufacturing companies. It is tempting for some traditional Christians, and those on the religious right, to dismiss these people as far-right, white nationalist, or as being a conspiracy theorist, but the harsh reality is traditional Christians such as the Roman Catholics and the Orthodox are next. It will be impossible to win the culture, or even continue to function, without a banking system that is friendly or at least tolerable to the cause. The religious right must create or secure a bank.
Traditional Christians are fast becoming public dissidents, subject to public censorship and punishment. If you do not believe that, then try espousing on Facebook or Twitter the traditional teaching of the Orthodox or Roman Catholic Church on same sex marriage, or even abortion; likely the post will be reported, removed, your account suspended. This isn’t exactly a new phenomenon. The gatekeepers of mainstream media have been doing this likely since the beginning of their criminal existence, but it seems amplified due to the relative freedom of bypassing them – which has been enjoyed on the internet.
However, such privileges are being clamped down on. Prominent Pro-Life and Orthodox author, Frederica Matthewes-Green, recently gave a speech at the Ancient Faith Podcasters and Writers conference, in which she gave an account of her efforts to push Christianity and pro-life mainstream. To some degree, she was very successful in getting published in some mainstream publications, even contributing to National Public Radio. One such publication was from the Washington Post, who had published some of her work before. But in 1995, she submitted a work that that nothing to do with the topic of abortion or being pro-life, but having written extensively on the subject in the past, the Washington Post abruptly decided that she was not the kind of person they would publish anymore.
Effectively, she was de-platformed. She used this story to correctly make the point that Christians are being pushed to the margins of society, the fringe. Deacon Nicholas Kotar, at the same conference, while discussing the need for Christians to create a culture stated, “…lilies on the edges of the field are beautiful too.” Being content to live on the fringes is fine, at least traditional Christians are beginning to realize that they are now considered dissidents too, along with the white nationalist, and other variations of the “far right.” Living on the fringes and being content to stay there frankly isn’t good enough, and considering the power and depravity of the enemy, probably won’t even be allowed. Without its own financial institution, the reactionary and religious right are powerless to affect culture, and potentially powerless to function in the market place at all. Good luck eating.
The post-revolutionary governments, in which we find ourselves subjected to, after following the enlightenment, have given society a bad bargain. Supposedly free from the tyranny of Kings, who arguably provided rather non-personal intrusive rule, popular government such as ours has provided easy means for power hungry financial institutions, and those profiting from them, to secure power.
When most people refer to the Cathedral, they are referencing the University system, mainstream media, and establishment political actors. The later commonly referred to as the Deep State, is only scratching the surface. The real power lies in the Global banking system, the very same ones who have become apparent culprits in international human trafficking, as evidenced by the whole Jeffrey Epstein debacle. Mega-Banks such as Barclays Bank, JP-Morgan, Chase, Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank, and Credit Suisse, and other “private” corporations who are federal reserve members are, in essence, our rulers.
Former attorney general of the United States, Eric Holder, stated, “I am concerned that the size of some of these institutions has become so large that it does become difficult for us to prosecute them when we are hit with indications (and) that if you do prosecute, if you do bring a criminal charge, it will have a negative impact on the national economy, perhaps even the world economy.” If these institutions are accountable to nobody, they hold absolute sovereignty and power. They are seeking to rule the globe via their global economy; David Rockefeller admitted so himself in his 2002 Memoirs. Domestically, they utilize tax-exempt foundations such as George Soros’ Open Society foundation, The Carnegie Institute, Ford Foundation, and the Bill & Melinda Gates foundation, to undermine traditional values and principles, pushing moral relativism, socialism, and collectivist ideas.
This isn’t exactly new, as pointed out by Antony Sutton in his book, ‘Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution’, Wall Street bankers financed the Bolshevik Revolution. They, also specifically attacking Christianity, are propagating various pseudo-Christian groups who advocate for same sex marriage and abortion rights. The banking system, which seeks to expand its new world order across the globe, committing atrocity after atrocity with impunity, this is what Reactionaries and Traditionalist are up against, and reliant upon for banking! Traditional family values, Christian sexual norms, and community are a threat to the institution’s absolute control; they won’t tolerate traditionalism for much longer. Preparation must begin now, if it isn’t already too late.
If traditionalists and Christians are to have any chance of building even a sub-culture, they need to be self-sufficient with finances. A good start would be to have a small bank or credit union, which could serve as a safe haven for Christians, especially public, outspoken ones, to have a place for basic banking services, for both personal and business. To continue to sell literature and receive support for broadcasts, it is essential that a business exist that will process their payments. Longer term, it may be necessary for dissidents as individuals to have a bank such as this for mere survival and participation in the market place. The bank should also provide its clients with personal and business loans in an honest manner, free of usury. This is just a matter of survival.
Ultimately, to really take control over a culture, sovereignty must be attained. A small bank as refuge is a good place to start, but it needs to be leveraged into or grown into a powerful force, such as the various mega banks. It may be that a Christian entryism is a necessity into the current institutions. Bright and innovative traditionalists must act and determine the most effective manner to acquire such an institution. Muslims have been successful with their own Islamic banks, all while rejecting usury. Once upon a time, Christians rejected usury as well. Perhaps it would be possible to purchase an already existing Islamic Bank and convert it to a Christian one. A possible near-term solution could be to create a Christian or broader right-wing credit card and or payment processor.
The mega banks and elites, who are guiding our society into something degenerate and hostile to traditional Christian values, will not continue to tolerate a Christian voice or sub-culture. Eventually, they will allow no distinction to be made between traditionalist Christians and “white supremacists.” It will simply become impossible to affect or transform the culture without first building institutions to compete with, and eventually replace, the ones in power now.
Retreating into peaceful, secluded Christian enclaves is also not necessarily an ideal option. Without institutions and power, people must rely entirely on the good will of the government for protection. How did that work out in Russia during the Bolshevik revolution? Were not hundreds of monasteries destroyed? Even the Amish may be not be spared from the coming storm. May Christians enter this period of persecution with more than preparation in years past, not so much for our own well-being, but for the good of the world. Righteous power begets the truth and beauty in which traditionalist Christians wish to restore. May our brightest minds in the movement come together to make this happen.
