Some big news took place last week that you are not hearing in the mainstream media and, in fact, in not very many places at all.
The Walton family, who own 50%+ of controlling Walmart stock, made a very shocking move.
But first, some quick background.
In America, it is estimated that Chinese suppliers make up 70-80 percent of Walmart’s merchandise.
That leaves less than 20 percent for American Made Products.
In 2013, Walmart committed to purchasing $250 Billion in American Made goods by 2023.
This is just 6 percent of Walmart’s net sales over the past decade.
Come 2023; the company has only spent 3.2 percent on American Made Goods.
That means roughly 96.8 percent of their goods are Chinese-made, Chinese-sourced or even BRICS sourced.
Second, Walmart is the number two employer in the U.S. The first is the U.S. Government.
I mention this because, to be number two in the U.S., you have a lot of logistics and supply chains going on.
You also have a lot of intel coming in so that you can maintain those logistics and supply chains.
But This is The Kicker
The Walton family, the primary owners of Walmart, have been aggressively conducting “insider” selling from March 2023 to June 16th of this year, where they have dumped over 71 million shares of Walmart stock.
That is $10,172,590,200.00 that they have made from March till June 16th.
That is a LOT of money and a lot of stock that they are dumping just this year alone.
I have looked at their past numbers, and yes, they have been selling here and there, but not at such an aggressive rate as they have in the last three months.
NOTE – There was that time when Alice Walton sold 9,508,240 shares of stock back in June 2021, but she also funded and built an art museum in New York. The odds are that is where that money went too.
Otherwise, when you look at their insider trading numbers, over the past years, there have been way more aggressive selling taking place these last three months vs. the prior years.
Ok, so here are the high points I want you to ponder…
– Roughly 96 percent of goods at Walmart are probably Chinese-made, Chinese-sourced or from BRICS nations. Give or take a few percentage points.
– Walmart is the #2 employer in the U.S., with strong logistics, global supply chains, and intel.
– In the past three months, the Walton’s have been aggressively selling Walmart stock more than ever, totaling over 71 million shares. This is more than they have ever sold in the past.
So why are three family members selling this much stock so fast?
As I mentioned, to have the global logistics, supply chains, and such, you know that they have their ears to the ground as to what may be coming down the pipe.
This is their lifeblood, and I can think of only two things that would cause chickens to flee the coop.
First, they have a pulse on purchasing and see something economic coming.
Yeah, this is a possibility… but honestly, that is a slow burn, and Walmart has faced economic issues before. They have been able to tighten down the ship and sail through these types of storms before.
So, what would cause the family to dump so much stock in just 90 days?
What about losing all their Chinese / BRICS supplies and suppliers in a very short amount of time?
Think about it, if you had roughly 96 percent of your goods coming from China or goods made somewhere else but with raw materials sourced from Chinese, and suddenly all that dries up, what would you be doing?
I would be setting up a nest egg for myself if I had the means to do so, and they have the means to do so.
With all that is happening in the world, what could possibly cause this knee-jerk selling of stock?
War with China? Possibly, but not quite yet.
My personal opinion… BRICS and the 23 Nations joining BRICS in August of this year.
New BRICS+ Alliance Coming Together in August 2023
The Russian Foreign Minister, Sergey Lavrov, has stated that ‘over a dozen countries have formally applied to join the BRICS grouping following the group’s decision to allow new members earlier this year. The BRICS currently includes Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa.
In 2014 they set up the New Development Bank (N.D.B.) and the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB). These were created to offer alternative financing provided by the I.M.F. and World Bank, which BRICS felt imposed political reform policies designed to assist the United States.
This subverts the SWIFT banking system that the U.S. has set up, which the U.S. has now leveraged to weaponize the U.S. Dollar.
In the past, even with our worst enemies, we did not weaponize the dollar. But the current administration has done so and took back billions of sovereign-owned Russian dollars “illegally,” depending on who you are talking to.
Seeing what the U.S. has done to Russia, BRICS and other nations want to ensure their assets are safe and free from this weaponization from the current admin. So, twenty-three countries are running to BRICS because they have lost faith in the SWIFT and U.S. Dollar system.
Here is the BIG news – If these 23 nations are accepted, the new proposed BRICS members would create…
An entity with a G.D.P. 30% larger than the United States.
They will have over 50% of the global population.
AND… be in control of over 60% of global oil reserves.
Here is a map of the proposed BRICS+ nations.
BRICKS will consist of a big chunk of the world, and a lot of goods that the U.S. imports, namely Walmart, gets their goods from these countries.
NOW… if you were part of the BRICS, would you be so inclined to do business with a country that has recently bent you over the barrel, and would you risk losing sovereign dollars?
If you are thinking like I am, odds are you would rather do business with countries that would not leverage / weaponize their currency, especially if they were the global reserve currency of the world.
Another point, BRICS is talking about creating its own currency, which would and could replace the U.S. dollar as the global reserve currency.
Which would you rather choose?
The U.S. dollar, which is backed by U.S. debt?
OR… a currency backed by a basket of currencies, precious metals, and rare earth minerals? Which is what is being proposed by BRICS and their currency.
It is a no-brainer if you ask me. Do you go with the one that has tangible assets vs. the one based on just an I.O.U.?
Learning From The Walton Family
This is a lot of my opinion, but I also watch what is going on in the global sphere of things.
We are seeing a LOT of change take place globally, with new alliances and new things coming down the pipeline.
I do not have the intel sources like the Waltons may have, but I think they are reading the writing on the wall and creating alternate avenues for “just in case.”
I have been preaching this for some time as well because I see the writing on the wall too.
My wife and I have also been creating alternate avenues to ensure that our personal supply chains remain intact.
We know a storm is coming, and we must be shoring up our “ark.”
We have been doing this in several ways…
– Ripping up our backyard and growing a bigger garden than last year.
– Making connections with local gardeners, farmers, ranchers, and farmer’s markets.
– Leveraging apps like…
– nextdoor.com, where we can connect with other gardeners.
– publicsq.com, where we can connect with local family-owned businesses.
– preppernet.net, where we can connect with other preppers all over the U.S. and locally to help facilitate mutual assistance groups.
– We have also switched from buying 95% of our daily consumer goods from Walmart. We are now leveraging Patriot Switch, which has helped us replace all those goods we once got at Walmart and other box stores, and now we shop with a great family-owned company with nearly 500 daily consumer goods that are also U.S. Made.
I keep warning folks out there that we must make this switch now so that when SHTF, we are already prepared and used to this new way of getting what our families need.
It takes a bit of getting used to it, and our family is doing it.
Question – Would you rather get used to doing all these things now, or when SHTF and you are fighting for stuff in Walmart isles being behind the 8-ball?
The biggest issue was finding a company that has U.S. Made consumer goods that we felt were safe for our family, and we found them.
The great news is that they maintain our family’s values. No E.S.G. with them. No WOKE agenda and No Chinese-made Chinese sourced junk.
If this is something that you want to leverage for you and your family, contact me, and I will zap you an email and send you a text when you fill out my Patriot Switch link.
I promise no Amway speeches or anything like that. Just me sharing what we are doing and how we made the switch.
Talk to me and join 20,000 other patriotic Americans with the Patriot Switch Movement – https://patriotswitch.com/thekiltedprepper
You do what you are still doing, shopping in big box stores filled with cheap Chinese junk.
Your money from those stores go to supporting WOKE agendas.
And shopping companies that all their stuff is filled with toxins that are not good for your family.
Don’t believe me?
Get your tube of toothpaste and read where it talks about calling Poison Control if you swallow too much of the toothpaste.
Yep… it is there.
Look at that bag of chips you just ate and the warning label it has as well on the back of the bag.
Again, talk to me about the Patriot Switch Movement – https://patriotswitch.com/thekiltedprepper
I hope to hear from you soon.
