Also, Stripe is disallowing an alarming number of paid subscriptions. We may have a company move coming soon.
Digital first responders…sounds like my old boss (in her spare time she was a first responder and made sure everyone knew it) She fired me and my son for not jabbing. We worked in her hotel/restaurant that daddy built for her. But hey, she insisted on it for our safety! Ironically daddy was El Presidente of Scotia Bank, a Birmingham, now deceased. Mother just died in May, she insisted the whole dam fam get as many boosters and masks as humanly possible. Even her little boy….I’m sure he’s boosted to oblivion. Poor kid, I imagine she will die one day due to matricide…

Had no problem using AMEX to re-up your Substack for one year.
Whoever didn't see this shit coming after witnessing the Canadian truckers smackdown in Feb. 2022, I think, was snoozing. There were other signs targeting individuals earlier but not groups that I was aware of.
People will be accustomed to change, they'll soon expect it.
When Larry recited things changing more rapidly, per Dr. Day, I bet he didn't even envision the pace of shit fly'n around as it has for the last four years.
I'll leave this here and I have to go eat dinner with a bunch of crazy old local farts.
I have never changed my email for over 25 years. Most of my 'handles' are hooked up to that account. Anybody with the capabilities of Palantir could in theory track me easy. So, again, why the fuck should I use my real name on the internet? Is this so 'Karen' (I hate that word, but there had to be a word for it, I guess) can feel safe? Or is it because those scary ass DOD assholes aren't half what they are cracked up to be? Neither is coming from a position of absolute strength.
There’s always a PO Box option. I still send checks and Venmo seems to still be working. Glad to work around the monsters.
All I can say is how delightful it is that FedNow is broken.
I’m sorry, Sage. I read something recently about Stripe. If I find it, I’ll post it. I can’t remember exactly what it was, but it didn’t give me good vibes.
I can tell you about my recent personal experience on both sides as a Substack writer and a paid subscriber to some newsletters including yours. My page view counts have dropped off and I lost some paid subscribers, though one told me directly that is was due to my position on the Israel/Hamas conflict, which could roughly be defined as genocide bad/the original attack looks false flag/stop using our taxpayer dollars to prop up the war machine. As some of the paid subs dropped around the same time, I assumed that my presumed leaning towards Palestine was to blame.
My old debit card on file for my paid subscriptions expired at the end of September and I didn't update the system with my new one until maybe 1-2 weeks later. For whatever reason I seemed to have to update on each subscriotion indivdually. They did not take money out of my account at first and there was no ryhme or reason when they did. I did not get overcharged but might have skipped a month or more of getting billed. Now I am getting receipts though so it should show up.
My free subscriber counts continue to go up steadily. Perhaps its fatigue over this whole the government is trying to kill you space. That said I suspect that substack is increasingly herding people into echo chambers which narrow with time as a lot of people do float in and out in an open system. I recently read that the top substack in the medical space looks like a pro Covid vaccine troll operation called Your Local Epidemiologist. My best advice is to diversify as always!
Anyone else notice a couple days ago, some (not all) substacks now give the option of "signing up" using ***google*** instead of directly?
Wait. What? You’re down 130k views this months compared to last month? Make it make sense.
Kanadian banks have become very predatory transferring low interest lines of credit to high interest credit cards. It takes weeks to process payments sometimes when it used to be next day. They are in trouble and will think nothing of starling money through bail ins etc. Substack will be no direferent than MSM if they go along. I’ll quit.
Sorry to hear about this Sage...
Unfortunately I think the short answer is those who control the money, are behind this, and without money supply we're stuffed and they know it... This is how countries are controlled too... Your country won't play ball no international money or credit for you...
Copy and paste time, but this is the plainest explanation I've come across... 👇
"the WEF is the easy answer, as they are the visible entity on the worldwide theatre stage for the ignorant public. The World Economic Forum is however not an independent entity. It is in turn controlled by concealed financial entities, whose greatest power is obscurity. By concealing themselves and operating solely from the shadows, they are able to manipulate everything that happens on the visible stage of the world theatre. Their astronomical financial resources allow them to spread their tentacles of influence into every aspect of society
The headquarters of these oligarchs are in so called "sovereign states" like the City of London (sovereign area in the heart of Greater London), the District of Columbia (sovereign area in Washington DC), and Vatican City State (sovereign area in Rome).
Another example of such a sovereign state is the Bank of International Settlements which oversees more than fifty central banks (central banks control the commercial banks, used by the public). They are one of the most powerful financial entities in the world, pulling many strings of world domination behind the scenes.
These independent states are above the laws of the land in which they are situated. They pay NO TAXES, answer to no government, have zero transparency, and are literally UNTOUCHABLE, since they are submitted to no jurisdiction, except their own."
"Their strength is complete obscurity. By remaining hidden from the view of humanity, they are able to operate unchecked, without being held accountable by the people."
"All we know and see are the public personalities - like politicians and businessmen - who are mere puppets of these concealed puppet masters"
PS these are the people who want a great reset...
I'm not sure if all the info on this site is true... But I think the bank info seems legit as from what we can see going on, especially bank freezes on truckers protesting, and other individuals who go against the narrative (Nigel Farage, Maria Zeee etc), then all the policy changes your local bank is implementing re you having an account (hate speech gets you de banked, except hate speech includes going against the narrative)...
The info came from a website that is super long long, in the format of an advertorial, that goes on and on and on "but wait there's more" style... I'm not thinking it's all true, once we get past the bank bit...
I've never been entirely sure about controlling us through 5G, although I'm sure if they could, they would, and I bet research is going on at a frantic pace... and probably more likely than I think...
I won't post the link, but just look up Stop world control dot com
I'm sure they have nailed it re the bank masters though, and these are the untouchables responsible for engineering the crap we're in right now
Love your diction and your spacing, Sage Hena. You're evolving a new kind of prose style. Yes, STRIPE is among the worst and most prevalent. Cuzin' to PayPal.
I seem to be on an annual subscription, so I can't say what might be happening on a regular basis.
Kirsch and Berenson have both been begging for paid subscriptions. I wonder if maybe Berenson alienated a few readers with his calls to rain down more death and destruction on Palestine? Kirsch, on the other hand, is promising to double my money if I pay to peek behind the curtain.
Reading this Substack has turned me into such a cynic! Rather than giving money to Berenson and Kirsch, I decided to try sending a few bucks here by Kofi. I guess it must have worked??
Also: if you think this situation is bad, have you seen what Martenson and his new hedge fund manager buddy David Rogers Webb are saying? They think JP Morgan and friends are standing at the ready, with legally certain entitlement to seize every financial asset belonging to everyone in the world. All they need is a good excuse, such as maybe a few oil tankers getting sunk in the Persian Gulf. Could happen any day now. Be prepared!
People’s credit cards also seem to be maxed out.
