Preparedness Notes for Friday — August 16, 2019

On August 16th, 1841, President John Tyler vetoed a second attempt by Congress to re-establish the Bank of the United States [1]. In response, angry supporters of the bank gathered outside the White House and burned an effigy of Tyler.

By way of Claire Wolfe’s blog, I just heard that her co-author Kit Perez had fairly major surgery for melanoma. She was caught without medical insurance on this, so donations would be greatly appreciated.

Claire reports:

“The pathology and prognosis are unknown at this point, but it’s frighteningly likely Kit’s going to need long-term medical follow-up. Friends of Kit’s have set up a fundraiser to cover the surgery and hopefully give Kit and her dear husband a boost toward paying insurance premiums this fall. I hope all who can will donate. But even if you can’t, please do what you can to spread the word:

The fundraiser is based over at F*c*b**k:

You can avoid FB and go directly to PayPal by sending money to Kit’s account: audax0@protonmail.com

This is bombshell and historical. Two Google engineers team up to expose Big Tech censorship while world movers and shakers hear this testimony during this interview conducted by Alex Jones.

Thanks for the heads up, Capt. Rawles. Kit Perez is a treasure in our world and deserves support to keep pitching.
