Don’t Be A Slave ~ Get Out Of Debt

The first thing that you need to do in order to get on the road to freedom is to get completely out of debt. The main fodder off of which the matrix feeds worldwide and at every level – personal, governmental and business – is debt. If they can keep us collectively chained to their phony fiat currency scheme, they can keep us quiet and subservient to their will.

The first debt to get rid of is ALL credit card debt. The interest rates that the Visa/Master Card Cartel charges are exorbitant. And they are owned largely by two of the biggest Illuminati-controlled banks on earth – JP Morgan Chase and Citigroup. Our destiny on this earth is certainly not to feed vampires.

The Tank Man Stood Up, Will You?

Once you pay off all your credit card debt, don’t ever go there again. Cancel and cut up all credit cards but one, as sometimes one is needed to rent a car or some other thing. I keep an airline-miles-earning Visa due to its international accessibility.

Never use even this one card except for things like car rental which, unfortunately still usually requires a credit card. On the infrequent occasion that you do use it, make sure to pay the balance off by the deadline that month to avoid usurious interest charges.

No wage slave dare openly speak ill of his/her boss or of the system in general, lest they risk being fired. Without a job how can they then make their house payment, car payment and so on? Because of their debt load, many Americans – even the well-paid ones – are just one paycheck away from living on the streets.

While paying off credit card debt may seem a daunting task to those of you who are buried in the stuff, it is essential to escaping the matrix. If you are able to nothing else in this book, get out of credit card debt.

There’s a saying I heard once that made a whole lot of sense to me. “Live like no one lives now and you’ll live like no one lives later”.

The implication is to live not only within your means, but below your means. Once you begin to do this you can not only easily erase your credit card debt, you can start to save money.

Start a bank account with a small community bank if you don’t have one already. These are not evil institutions and should never be seen in the same light as the Illuminati mafia.

In fact these small banks are an integral part of any town since they finance businesses, housing, etc. One thing you will learn while exiting the matrix is how important it is to lose your dogma on a range of issues and make moral decisions based on reality rather than somebody else’s accepted theory of the day.

There are different kinds of bankers, different kinds of politicians, different kinds of business people, loggers, hunters, lawyers, etc. Some own the matrix, some sell out to it, and some work against it. That is reality. Trade in your dogma for some karma.

Starting a bank account protects you from acting impulsively in accordance with the nonstop matrix shopping program. It’s much easier to spend money you are carrying on your person or have sitting in a drawer at home. Keeping your money in a bank makes it harder for you to spend it and watching it grow will encourage you to continue working towards your freedom.

Significantly, when you’ve paid off your debt and you start a savings or checking account, you cease to be a debtor to the bankers and begin to be their creditor.  That savings account you started is a loan to the bank which they then lend out at a higher interest rate.  As such, the banker is required to pay you interest on that loan which, while currently miniscule and pathetic, fluctuates according to the prime rate set by the Federal Reserve cartel.

Go to a system of paying cash for everything.  If you write lots of checks or use a debit card too much, it’s easy to lose track of your account balance.

I had significant debt only twice in my life.  Once I took out around $5,000 in student loans to get my Bachelor’s Degree.  The second time we had a $10,000 mortgage on the first property we owned.

10 dollar Bill New York Federal Reserve
The Federal Reserve Was Created in 1913.

Both times these debts were paid off within a year.  The key was most definitely living below my means.  The other key was working all the overtime I could get at the various jobs I had.

My father died when I was 12 years old in a car accident.  We operated a farm at the time.  I loved playing baseball in the summer and was a pretty good catcher and lead-off hitter, but with Dad gone money got tight, we had to sell the farm place and my Mom lined me up with my first job for a local farmer.  The pay was $2.25/hour.

I learned to operate all types of farm equipment and soon found a job for $3.00/hour, then one for $4.00/hour.  As farmers in the area began hearing stories of what a hard worker I was and how competent I was at operating machinery, they competed to have me work for them in the summers.  At the end of my “farming phase” I was making $6.00/hour and working 60-70 hours a week.  I missed playing baseball, but racked up around $4,000 in savings.

In those days interest rates were high and Mom wisely got me invested in a certificate of deposit (CD) that paid 13% interest.  So when I went off to college, I had a little cushion and didn’t have to take out as many student loans as some kids.

Keep Positive Yes

Even so, I worked my way through college at various pizza joints (lots of free food), libraries and work study jobs.  My senior year of college I worked three different jobs at once.  And when I graduated I had a job lined up as a fly fishing guide on the Alaskan Peninsula that paid very well.  Room and board was included and since we were in the middle of nowhere, there was nothing to spend my paychecks on.

Due to all that hard work, my student loans were paid off and I was able to save enough money for a two-month overland backpacking trip to Mexico, Belize and Guatemala.  I was completely out of debt and seeing the world at age 22.

The first leg of that journey south was driven from Omaha to McAllen, TX on the Mexican border in an auto drive-away car.  These companies still exist and this is an excellent way to travel for free.

Usually someone has driven their car somewhere and due to some unexpected contingency they have to fly home.  Your role is to get their car back to them.  Gas and insurance are paid, so the ride is free.  Google “auto drive-away” and find out if you have one near you.

The second time I was in debt was when we bought our first property – 10 acres and a beat up mobile home.  By that time I was 27 years old, had my Master’s Degree, had traveled solo around the world and was married to my beautiful wife, Jill.

Little Boxes Everywhere

In my travels, the lessons in simple living that my parents and grandparents had instilled in me on the farm sunk in even deeper. 

We send out the Peace Corps to condescendingly “teach” the developing world how to live, while Illuminati corporations and banks plunder their resources.  Ironically, I have learned so much about how to live from the global poor.

But you can see the same thing here in the US, if you look.

Mexicans come here to work the hard jobs that Americans won’t.  They cram as many workers as they can into beat up mobile homes to save on rent.  Nearly every dime they earn is then sent back to their families in Mexico who are socking that money away into savings accounts so that these hard-working wanderers can eventually go home and retire to a nice country home.

Don’t let appearances fool you.  The Mexicans keeping those Des Moines meat packing plants humming are far more wealthy that most Americans.  They are creditors.

Order Out of Chaos

When I got my MS in 1991, I was totally broke. So I lined up another good paying job, this time in Japan teaching English. They flew me over in Business Class, where I filled my luggage with as many free tiny bottles of Jack Daniels as I could coax out of the stewardess. They also gave us a free house to live in and car. In only five months our bank account went from $0 to $15,000. It was our first grubstake.

From Kobe, we hopped a ferry to Shanghai, China and spent three months visiting China, Macao, Hong Kong, Thailand, Malaysia, the Philippines and Hawaii. We were creditors again and seeing the world.

We spent $4,000 traveling and buying a car at an LA auction when we returned, so we rolled into the Ozarks in the fall of 1992 with a 1965 Plymouth Reliant packed to the gills. Our two dogs – Buck and Milo – had to sit atop our stuff in the back seat.

After a night sleeping in that packed car, we saw an ad for 10 acres and a mobile home for $29,900. We had a look, offered them $20,000 and moved in that night.

We put $10,000 down and signed a five-year contact for deed. When the dust had settled and the propane tank was filled, we had only a couple hundred dollars left to our name.

Line In The Sand 2019
Run Forrest Run

The only answer was to hit the ground running. I worked a variety of temporary agency jobs assembling BB guns, packing baby wipes and whatever, while Jill landed a job at a radio station. We had to borrow $4,000 from her parents to buy Jill a reliable pickup to drive to work.

Within two months I landed a job as a drill crew roustabout on a dam repair project. At $7.00/hour it was the best paying job in the depressed Ozarks. I worked 70 hours a week, taking all the overtime I could get.

During this time, I “borrowed” a copy of Abbie Hoffman’s Steal This Book from a public library which wishes to remain anonymous. For those of you who have read it, hopefully you will not wonder why I thought about calling this book, Steal This Book… Again. I learned many things from that excellent book.

Within days of finishing it, a hillbilly named John who worked at the dam, smoked massive quantities of weed and had a beard down to his knees, “borrowed” it from me. I never saw it again.

Meanwhile we were eating copious amounts of macaroni and cheese and fried bologna, dumpster-diving furniture and growing a massive garden.

One day I went in to pay the monthly house note of $250.  I asked the realtor to confirm what we still owed and was shocked to learn of the word “amortization”.

For those as naïve as I was, this nasty word means that when you start to pay down a house loan, you pay far more interest than principal.  As such, we owed the realtor far more than we thought we did.

Armed with this new and depressing knowledge, we hatched a plan.  Jill had already quit her job at the radio station.  She could no longer take the lies required to sell advertising, nor the depths that her coworkers would sink to “sell air”.

We sold the pickup we had bought for her.  Because we had done our research and purchased it from a private individual, we had bought the pickup for the below-book price of $4,000.  We sold it for the book value price of $4,600.

We paid back her folks, then took every dime of the rest of our savings and made a lump-sum payment of $7,000 towards the property.  That done, the remaining house payments would go mostly towards principle.

Within eleven months of moving in, we paid the place off. When I went in to make the final $250 payment, the realtor was so floored at our determination that he refused to take that last check.  Instead, he gave us the deed and we owned our place free and clear.

We had joked all along that they never would have sold that place to us for that price, but for the fact that they figured they’d be repossessing it a few months after we could no longer make the payments. We must have been quite the site when we rolled into their office in that packed-to-the-gills 65’ Plymouth.

We were out of debt and worn out from the grind, so we decided to rent the place out for $275/month, bought a 1978 Chevy van for $500, built a bed in it out of scrap lumber and hit the road.

A little over a year later we sold that place for $26,000. We hadn’t made much of a profit, but had lived rent free for a year and made some rental income the next year, which we spent living rent-free in that Chevy van.

More importantly, since we had the place paid off, we were able to put every penny of that $26,000 into a savings account. At age 28, we had just taken a quantum leap on the road to freedom. It changed everything.

Get Out Of Debt

To summarize, there are two simple keys to getting out of debt. First, work long hours and keep looking for the best paying job around even as you work a less desirable job.

Don’t settle into some low-paying job because it’s easy. Laziness is the surest way to a life of slavery. This is why the matrix is constantly sending us signals that laziness is somehow a virtue. The mantra goes that you should attempt to get by with as little effort as possible, that you are getting one over on the system by being lazy.

Like all matrix propaganda, nothing could be further from the truth. Be industrious and work hard for your freedom.

Second, you must scrimp and scrape and live below your means. Turn down the heat in winter and use blankets, open the windows in the summer, don’t buy anything you don’t absolutely need and sell things you have that you don’t need. Be proactive. It’s your life.

And remember, if you live like no one lives now, you will live like no one lives later.

California On Fire ~ Declared Emergency

UN_SimulationMap Agenda 21
United Nations Agenda 21 & Agenda 2030 Now In Operation In California.

The fire crisis here in California continues as firefighters from all over the country are being sent to put out the fires in both Northern and Southern California.

Global Warming is now called Climate Change. This is a joke to me, dear followers, because the weather is always changing.

Here is what Agenda-Free news channel had to say about what is up for California for Tuesday, October 29, 2019.

Here is a map of Weather Modification for California for 2011. California is hiring private contractors spending 3 Million to 5 Million USD on Geo-Engineer our entire state. The spraying in 2011 is still going on now. We get a break from the chemicals being sprayed above our heads filled with Aluminum, Barium, and all kinds of sick chemicals that are ruining our environment and making the people in California sick.

An NGO (Non-Government Organization known as the United Nations is gaining more control over America, and unless we stop this, most of us will lose our homes.

Don’t believe me?

First, look at Agenda 21. Here is the document:

How do we wake up at 3:30 AM to find fires now starting off of the 405 near the Getty Museum?

Please don’t call me crazy, wake up. The winds are not bad enough for this to be happening. Here is a video from Logic Before Authority Regarding fires in Northern California as the same strategy now being used in Southern California.

If you want to see live coverage from Los Angeles, “Agenda-Free TV” on YouTube is covering fires live as well as Police and Fire Communications.

Here is information on Northern California:

SANTA ROSA, California (AP) — With ferocious winds driving multiple wildfires through bone-dry vegetation and nearly 200,000 people ordered to leave their homes, California’s governor declared a statewide emergency Sunday. Meanwhile, millions of residents remained without power after the state’s largest utility cut electricity as a precaution to prevent more areas from igniting.

Gov. Gavin Newsom said in a statement that officials were deploying “every resource available” to respond to the wildfires, including a large blaze in Northern California’s wine country powered by gusts that reached more than 102 mph (164 kph). California Fire officials said Sunday that the fire had grown to burn over 85 square miles, and officials reported containment had dropped to 5%. At least 94 structures have been destroyed.

In the San Francisco Bay Area, two grass fires briefly halted traffic on an Interstate bridge. The flames came dangerously close to homes in Vallejo. Another grass fire closed a stretch of interstate that cut through the state capital as smoke obstructed drivers.

To prevent its power lines from sparking in the high winds and setting off more blazes, Pacific Gas & Electric said Sunday that preventative shut-offs impacted 965,000 customers and another 100,000 lost electricity because of strong gusts, bringing the number of residents impacted by blackouts to nearly 2.7 million people.

PG&E officials say they are expecting strong winds to whip up again Tuesday and that they have notified 500,000 customers — or more than 1 million people — that they are likely to have their power turned off for the third time in a week. Some of those people might not have their power restored from the current outage before the next major shutdown, which would leave them without electricity for five days or longer, said Mark Quinlan, PG&E’s emergency preparedness and response director.

The fear that the winds could blow embers and spread fire across a major highway prompted authorities to expand evacuation orders that covered parts of Santa Rosa, a city of 175,000 that was devastated by a wildfire two years ago.

“This is the largest evacuation that any of us … can remember,” the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office tweeted Sunday. “Take care of each other.”

Hundreds of people arrived at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa by Sunday. Some came from senior care facilities. More than 300 people slept inside an auditorium filled with cots and wheeled beds. Scores of others stayed in a separate building with their pets.

Among them was Maribel Cruz, 19, who packed up her dog, four cats and fish as soon as she was told to flee her trailer in the town of Windsor, about 60 miles (97 kilometers) north of San Francisco. She also grabbed a neighbor’s cat.

“I’m just nervous since I grew up in Windsor,” she said. “I’m hoping the wind cooperates.”

Sonoma County Sheriff Mark Essick urged residents in the evacuation zone that stretched from the wine country to Bodega Bay on the coast to get out immediately, citing the 24 lives lost when fire swept through the region in October 2017.

Internet Insights Since 1991

A Commentary Based On Perspective by Mitch Santell

Netscape As We Early Users Viewed it in the early ’90s.

The decision that I made to always speak my truth has silenced my iPhone, my social media, and my email.

The decision I made to get off of FaceBook in 2019 was just as profound as my decision to not live in fear anymore and move to New Zealand in June of 2007, the same month that my own Grandson Reid was born.

For us, early adapters all we talk about is the “interface” of whatever program or service we are using. You know that conversation, right?

As we continue to lose our rights and our privacy, technology is getting more comfortable to use. Almost too easy to use.

Have you noticed this? I have.

You may want to ask yourself, why is everything being censored?

Answer: Our world is being run by A.I., Algorithms, and Beurocrats that track everything.

What do we live in?

Answer: Repeat after me very very slowly.  We live in a “Corprotaocray.”

Severe Storms Calif & Utah Caused By Low/High Frequencies ~Geo Engineering

Climate engineering operations continue to intensify around the world, as are unprecedented weather related catastrophes. The environment is not the only thing that is collapsing, the days of the US dollar dominated world are now numbered. What are the ramifications? How desperate will the world’s largest military become? Why are swarms of military helicopters overrunning LA? A new “science study” concludes that planes passing through clouds miraculously produce up to 10 times more rain or snow, while simultaneously and radically lowering precipitation temperatures. The same study also tries to assure us that such profound effects have absolutely nothing to do with any emissions from the aircraft itself. Are we really expected to believe this? How long will academicians continue to cover the tracks of the climate engineers? The latest installment of Global Alert News is below.

Please look at these links to get a bigger picture of what is happening.

Green New Deal To Leave California In The Dark

Commentary About Living In The Dark by Mitch Santell

Everything that you read in the newspaper and everything that you see on Tell-Lie-Vision, for the most part, is a lie.

If you are not in California, invest a few moments to see what California is doing that will put the lights out across America.

A very special thank you to Grindall61 who has been on the front reporting on Agenda 21, the Corporate takeover of local communities, plus filming local meetings in West Covina, California.

My name is Gary Gileno. I live in Southern California and this channel is about warning you about why you should not allow your state to become infected with California.

When Nation Building Turns Into an Orwellian Enslavement

Opening by Mitch Santell

This is why America is so divided over Donald J. Trump. What is it? This is the battle between Hive (group think), vs. the Individual (Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness).

Home Is Where the Hate Is: The Triangle

Here’s more of what I think about “nation building”…

I have written several topics about “nation building” and black people’s obsession with group economics (link 1, link 2, link 3, link 4 & link 5). And to keep it real simple, in order for you to build, create and sustain any society – regardless of gender, race or geographical location – you would have to enslave certain groups of people. Particularly those whom you either don’t like or think are incapable of making “right” choices, even if those choices are just to ego-stroke those who have an inferiority complex. I know I’m repeating myself, but some people are slow. Others just don’t talk about this harsh reality of “nation building”.

Here’s the thing about people reducing themselves to John Henry folktales and community servicemen trying to fix society’s problems, under the assumption that it would…

The Shifting Times In America

Reflections and Comments On Unsteady Times by Mitch Santell

Still need a job
Industry After Industry Is Being Disrupted.

Good evening followers and readers. Thank you so much for following my blog or at least checking in with me from time to time to get a sense of my observations. In 2007 I could not live in fear any more and I moved in New Zealand. The challenges I experienced there have now hit America and I wonder what kind of world and what kind of America my Grandchildren will live in once I am dead, buried and gone.

There seems to be a sincere lake of community. From what I observe on a daily basis I see more and more people who are either struggling, gave up or don’t know where to turn.

There has never been a time outside of The Civil War and The American Revolution that I have observed the United States at such a divided fork in the road.

Here are some thoughts that one writer put into an opinion piece. I related a lot to what was written. First, I am an American and Second, I feel sense and observe the constant chatter of so many that are extreme on both sides of the political spectrum.

Check this out and see if you are like mined with this:

What should we do during the next two years of divided government? We could spend them as we’ve spent the last two: React to every Trump outrage. Keep Trump’s narcissistic provocations at center stage. Express daily contempt from within the safety of our political silos.

This seems to be the business model for cable news and online media. There’s a big, reliable audience of people who will tune in to feel appalled by and superior to President Donald Trump, and who are addicted to their daily rituals of moral onanism.

On the other hand, we could put the Trump soap opera off to the side and pay attention to actual Americans and actual solutions. We could acknowledge that we are an evenly divided country. We could build the bipartisan governing coalitions and agendas suited to that reality.

Fortunately, many people are opting for plan B. For example, the Convergence Center for Policy Resolution gathers stakeholders across the political spectrum and gets them working together on common visions — union bosses with Walmart executives, teacher union leaders with charter school heads.

Washington think tanks are undergoing a fundamental evolution. A lot of them, like the American Enterprise Institute and the Brookings Institution, were built to advise parties that no longer exist. They were built for a style of public debate — based on social science evidence and congressional hearings that are more than just show trials — that no longer exists. Many people at these places have discovered that they have more in common with one another than they do with the extremists on their own sides.

So suddenly there is a flurry of working together across ideological lines. Next week, for example, the group Opportunity America, with Brookings and AEI, will release a bipartisan agenda called “Work, Skills, Community: Restoring Opportunity for the Working Class.”

Written by a wide array of scholars, the report starts with the truth that the working class has been mostly ignored by the rest of society. Government has welfare programs to serve the poor and they have programs like 529 savings accounts to subsidize the rich. But there’s very little for families making, say, $50,000 a year.

Businesses like Amazon will invest in rich places like New York and Northern Virginia, but they won’t invest much in working-class communities in Ohio or Kentucky. Universities, religious organizations and activist groups will recruit from the affluent suburbs and serve those in dire poverty, but they barely touch the working class.

What you get is a layer of society that has been denuded of institutions and social bonds. Working-class men have been dropping out of the labor force at alarming rates. A generation ago, working-class families were about as likely to be part of religious communities as affluent Americans, but now their participation rates have plummeted. A generation ago, working-class families were nearly as likely to be married as affluent people, but now only half the children in working-class families will be raised in adolescence by stably married parents. From the 1970s to the 2000s, the share of working-class people aged 25 to 60 who were involved in a neighborhood organization fell from 71 percent to 52 percent.

Let’s Dumpster Dive On Thanksgiving

Why You Should Dumpster Dive

Did you know that roughly one third of the food produced worldwide ends up in dumpsters? Now I completely understand. You’re not interested in diving for food. You want to find some furniture, electronics, or whatnot. Well you’d be surprised that those items are also being disposed of at alarming rates. The cold reality is that in order for stores to please their customers, they need to throw out the things that are returned or not selling. The complete and utter waste of these perfectly fine resources should be enough in itself to motivate you to take action. You’d be baffled by what you find people throwing away. Regardless of their reasons, you can do pretty well for yourself by dumpster diving.

Now I’m not saying that dumpster diving is all rainbows and unicorns. You might have to butt heads with store managers. Your friends might think you’re out of your mind. You may have to get dirty, but thankfully not too dirty. The point I’m trying to get across is that you should dumpster dive for you, not someone else. Despite everyone’s reasons, we dumpster dive as a source of fulfillment. Whether it’s to lower our grocery bill, finding things to flip on Craigslist, or to get that warm and fuzzy feeling for saving the environment, we all love the thrill of taking trash and turning it into treasure. Hopefully you can relate. If you can’t, you need to get out and dumpster dive as soon as possible.

The 3 Golden Rules of Dumpster Diving

No matter how you dumpster dive, you should follow these 3 rules. Be quick, be quiet, be clean. So what does this mean exactly? Good thing you asked! Let’s break each one of these down.

Quick

The goal of dumpster diving is to find impressive things for free while not being disrupted. You don’t want to be a sitting duck. Sitting ducks get nowhere. You should be able to hit a dumpster in under 10 minutes. If you’re taking longer than this, something’s wrong. The longer you stay at one dumpster, the fewer dumpsters you can hit in a go and the higher likelihood that you’ll be confronted. Now if you’re really good, you should be able to get through a dumpster in under 5 minutes. Now of course there are some exceptional dumpsters that’ll take you much longer to go through so this recommendation is subject to change on the fly.

Quiet

No matter if you go during the day or at night, you should be silent. If you’re with a friend while dumpster diving, use voices that are between a whisper and casual conversational. If you give others a reason to confront you, they’ll confront you. Dumpster diving in itself isn’t a crime, but some people will try to find ways of dealing with you. One of these ways is called disturbing the peace. Be on people’s good side. Don’t give strangers a reason to hate you and you’ll be able to dumpster dive without much concern.

Clean

Now you may be confused. Dumpsters are the opposite of clean. They’re supposed to be filthy. Well luckily you’re not diving in those kinds of dumpsters. The dumpsters you’ll be targeting are retail dumpsters that tend to be fairly clean, but that’s besides the point. By clean, we mean that you should leave a dumpster at a minimum of as good as you found it if not better.

After you’re done picking through the scraps, take what you don’t want to bring home and throw it back into the dumpster. Nothing infuriates employees more than opening up shop the next day to find a messy dumpster. This isn’t even mentioning the fact that they likely have you on camera and can charge you for loitering. Like we said before, don’t give stores a reason to hate you. If you do this step right, most locations won’t even realize that you’re dumpster diving there. If you don’t clean up after yourself, prepare to find a locked dumpster or angry employees scolding you the next time you return to that location.

Learn Your Local Laws

If you didn’t already know, dumpster diving is legal in the United States and most developed countries such as Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, and many more. However, there are some municipalities with ordinances against dumpster diving. It’s important for you to recognize whether your town has laws against dumpster diving. This is relatively easy to do. Go to city hall or call them up and they’ll tell you all the information you need to know about dumpster diving.

Dumpster Diving GuideIn the overwhelming majority of cases, you should be able to dumpster dive with no issues. If you do happen to live in an area where dumpster diving is not allowed, simply look at other nearby regions that permit it and go there. It’s not the end of the world.

Now that we’ve established the legality of dumpster diving, you should be aware that stores usually don’t like people picking through their trash and law enforcement will be split depending on the officer that sees you doing it. First of all, remember that it’s legal. Secondly, know that they can’t take any legal action against you unless you’ve committed a crime.

Now what are these crimes that they could use as an excuse to dissuade you from dumpster diving. First of all, don’t trespass. If you see “no trespassing” signs near a dumpster or gated garbage bins, promptly leave. Next, don’t cause too much noise. We previously mentioned that this could be considered disturbing the peace. Lastly, don’t make a mess by leaving the area worse than you found it. Follow these instructions and you should be well on your way to dumpster diving success.

What to Wear When Dumpster Diving

Whatever you decide to wear while dumpster diving should correspond with the weather. You need to be prepared for the elements including but not limited to wind, rain, and snow. Your attire should ideally be something that is old and used. Think Walmart clothes and hand-me-downs. If you’re dumpster diving, you really don’t need to wear anything nice. Just wear something that gets the job done. Stack up on layers if it’s going to snow or throw on a raincoat if it’s drizzling.

Ideally you also want a pair of gloves so that your hands don’t get dirty. In addition, make sure whatever shoes you use have very sturdy soles. You don’t want a sharp object to protrude into your foot. Your footwear should also be waterproof to avoid any garbage juices that may seep in. Therefore, you should look into steel bottom water-resistant boots for maximum protection. These usually require a bit of an initial investment. However, this investment will easily pay itself back tenfold by the amount of things you’ll find dumpster diving and saving that one trip to the emergency room when an iron rod goes through your foot. I highly recommend this one (On Amazon). It checks all of these boxes and has worked well for me in the past.

Dumpster Diving Tools and Gear

There are so many things that you could possibly use while dumpster diving that it would take a full article in itself to list them all. If you’re wondering where that article is, you can find one that we created right here.

For the purposes of this post, we’re going to give you a brief rundown of the most basic tools that you’ll need. Remember, if you want to learn more, click that link above. For starters, you’ll want a flashlight or headlamp especially if you’re going at night. You’ll also want to carry hand sanitizer or rubbing alcohol since you’re dealing with trash which can be dirty depending on the store you’re dumpster diving. A pocket knife for cutting open boxes or bags on the spot is also a good idea. Here’s a great pocket knife on Amazon that does the job. Pocket knives could also be useful for self-defense. Dumpster diving is far from dangerous, but you always want to be prepared for the unexpected.

Making and Executing a Dumpster Diving Plan

Now that you know the basics of dumpster diving, it’s time for you to make a plan.

1. Choosing a Location and Time

In order to dumpster dive, you need to know where you want to dumpster dive. For beginners, it’s best to dumpster dive at stores that are closest to your residence and places that you’ve shopped at before. This is meant to ease you into this hobby since you have the most familiarity with your local businesses. If you can, look into things like a store’s garbage schedule and hours.

Once you’ve ironed out where you’re dumpster diving at, set up a time to do it. This could be at night, during the afternoon, or in the morning before the store opens. To facilitate you with this process, we’ve outlined a guide which you can find at this link detailing what times and days of the week are optimal for dumpster diving.

2. Method of Transportation and Storage

The second thing that you want to have in mind is how you’re going to get to the dumpster and get the goods back to your headquarters. It’s best to have a vehicle with plenty of storage room like a van or pickup truck. If not, a smaller car works fine as well. Consequently, you may have to do more loads with it if you’re having a good night. Don’t have either of these? You can always ride a bike or walk as a last resort. If you’re going to bike, consider getting yourself a bike trailer (Amazon) so that you have an area to stock and haul your finds back home.

3. Dumpster Diving Alone or with a Friend

You need to decide if you’re going to dumpster dive by yourself or with someone else. New dumpster divers should try to go with another person if it can be arranged. A helper can prove to be extremely useful even for experienced dumpster divers. While you’re scoping out a dumpster and loading up the goods, they can keep watch and alert you to anything that you may be unaware of. A friend could also help you by looking through a dumpster and loading alongside you which would definitely increase your speed.

If you can’t find someone else to tag along, don’t be concerned. Dumpster diving can be done alone. Just try to be more aware of your surroundings if you decide to take this route.

4. The Infiltration and Getaway

Trash Picking TutorialThe last part of your plan involves how you’re going to get in and out. When you get to your dumpster diving location, look around to see if there’s anyone else in the area like employees of the store. If there’s someone there, skip the dumpster for now. If you’re clear, you can begin the infiltration process.

When parking your car, bike, or whatever mode of transportation you used to get there, don’t block any roadways or alleys. If someone has to swerve around your vehicle, you’re drawing bad attention to yourself. If you can, try parking next to or even side by side with the dumpster using it to block out as much of your vehicle as possible. Moreover, position the trunk of your car toward the dumpster so that you can load faster.

Once you’re done rummaging through the trash, it’s time to leave. There’s no point in dwelling around a dumpster that has nothing left to offer. While you’re leaving, check your mirrors or look around to make sure that no one’s following or tailgating you out of there. This step should be a piece of cake.

What to do if Confronted When Dumpster Diving

If a store manager or the police show up, try to stay calm. After all, what you’re doing is completely legal if you did your research on your local laws. An informed dumpster diver won’t get into trouble. Depending on the person you run into, they may allow you to continue, tell you to leave, or try to intimidate you or accuse you of false charges.

Start off by kindly and calmly explaining your reason for being there. If they tell you to leave, obey their orders immediately as staying around any longer is considered trespass. If you’re unfortunate, they’ll make up falsehoods about you such as fabricating a story about how you were illegally throwing trash into their dumpster, littering, disturbing the peace, or blocking the roadway. No matter what they throw at you, patiently hear them out and confidently deny it. Eventually they’ll give up and let you go on your way. If they continue to insist, reason with them and show them evidence that what they’re saying about you is untrue.

Now what happens if they still don’t allow you to leave? This is very unlikely to happen by the way, but if it does, call them out on their bluff and tell them to provide evidence such as the security footage or a witness. You probably don’t need to think too much about this scenario if at all since I’ve never personally experienced it or know of anyone who’s gone through it. Don’t let the insignificant chance of running into a douche stop you from practicing your right of dumpster diving.

What to Watch Out for While Dumpster Diving

  • Don’t climb into dumpsters with medical equipment or toxic waste. There’s probably nothing to find there and even if there was, it’s not worth the risk. Remember that protective clothing goes a long way.
  • Watch out for the wind. Dumpster lids can unexpectedly close and slam your head or hands if left unguarded.
  • Look for sharp or hazardous objects before jumping into a dumpster. Ensure that there’s enough space in there for you to get a firm footing.
  • Don’t get into a dumpster that smells bad. This could be from rotting food or dead animals. You don’t want to be in close quarters to any of these.
  • Never get into a trash compactor. These can easily crush and kill you.

Dumpster Diving Etiquette and Mannerisms

  • Take only what you need or can reasonably use. Leave the remaining stuff for other dumpster divers.
  • Avoid ripping open trash bags if necessary. If you can, try to untie them and bind them back together when finished.
  • Don’t tamper with locked dumpsters.
  • Leave a dumpster cleaner than you found it.

Agenda 21 to Agenda 2030, forget it!

Commentary on why we can’t see the truth by Mitch Santell

The vast divide as to what people believe is just astonishing to me. When I speak to people individually about the United Nations and Agenda 21 they can’t see it, even when I show them in plain sight.

California Fade Out 2018
U.N. Agenda 21 Quickly Shifting to Agenda 2030

Most will simply state that the fires through out the state of California are normal for this time of year if not more intense than past years.

United Nations Agenda 2030
Agenda 2030 Completes the Global Technocracy Created by the U.N.

By Ian Wishart, author of “Totalitaria”

It’s one of the most under-reported stories of the year, but it is also one of the biggest stories of the year.

This time around, one of the most populist popes in modern history is expected to stay on that road as he takes part in the third special occasion – the unveiling of Agenda 2030.

If you’ve heard of Agenda 21, think bigger. Agenda 21 has already been put in place by most local councils in the western world, including New Zealand. If your local officials talk in terms of “smart communities”, “smart growth” or “sustainability” they are using Agenda 21 phrases. Many large corporations across the world have also adopted Agenda 21 principles.

But Agenda 2030 goes even further. Seventeen core goals are being rolled out with full implementation of those goals being set down for 2030 – just 15 years away. To speed up implementation, UN member states – including New Zealand – have been asked to ratify those goals in advance, says the UN website:

“The United Nations General Assembly today approved a resolution sending the draft ‘2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development’ to Member States for adoption later this month, bringing the international community “to the cusp of decisions that can help realize the… dream of a world of peace and dignity for all,” according to Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. “Today is the start of a new era. We have travelled a long way together to reach this turning point,” declared Mr. Ban.”
