The R-Syndicate has just received a copy of the SCRIPT being given to Community Health Ambassadors by the Lake County Hellinoiz Health Department. This script tells these do-gooders, in addition to other things, how to gain access to multi-tenant buildings, that "No Soliciting" signs do not apply because they are not trying to sell anything, and to record information about their interactions to report back. This first phase seems to be concentrating on facilities/communities that have a high concentration of seniors. Full roll-out is sure to follow soon!!!
Please visit the REFERENCE MATERIAL page and download a copy of the PDF to read for yourself! This should be very concerning to EVERY AMERICAN, regardless of their political/social alignment!!!
2nd VOTE is a website developed to show you how companies and major corporation spend their money and what causes, groups, ideologies, and political groups they support. We need to stop shopping at companies that support anti-American causes and values. Please visit their website today and start paying attention to where you spend your money, and the causes you are unknowingly supporting by doing so. Spread the word so that we hurt them in the only place they really care about, their pocketbooks!!!
This weekend, we had a great R-Syndicate get together in northern Hellinoiz. We got to see some old friends, as well as meet some new friends. We had people come from as far away as northern Minnesota, northern & eastern Michigan, and Southern Ohio.
Lots of good food, cold drinks, and great conversation!

We are pleased to announce that American Regulators have joined the R-Syndicate as a supporting creator!
The American Regulators is a group of individuals that love this country and would like to see every member flourish. We wish to produce real change on every level in this nation. Through community events, rallies, and petitions organized by our dedicated members, we work to hold leaders and decision-makers accountable for their actions, moving them to rethink what is possible.
2021 04 18: Caz has created a new store at Teespring. His 4thDimension merch is currently available, and R-Syndicate merch will be available soon. We will post more information/links when they are ready!
2021 04 16: This morning, Caz received a notification from Spreadshirt that his account has been terminated. The reason they cited was, "Hate speech and Hateful Content, Inciting violence and Harmful Misleading Content for Three Percent and Oath Keeper content. As well, this is in violation of the Partner Terms and Conditions."
We highly encourage everyone to BOYCOTT and STOP BUYING ANYTHING from Spreadshirt. If you have a store there, strongly consider moving your products elsewhere before they terminate your store as well.
We will post new links to a store you can purchase your 4thDimension and R-Syndicate merchandise as soon as Caz is able to find a provider that will not censor his artwork and our messages!!! Any suggestions as to where he can do that would be greatly appreciated. Send us an email with the info to firstname.lastname@example.org . THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!!
In a letter dated February 16th, 2021, Don Thrasher, Chairman of the Nelson County Republican Party, sent a letter to Kentucky Senator Mitch McConnell demanding his resignation. Thrasher sites McConnell's actions and statements against President Trump, and that those positions are not reflective of the constituents he is supposed to represent, both in Kentucky and as the highest ranking member of the Republican Party in the Senate.
In order for change to occur, we must all take an active roll in making the change. The R-Syndicate asks everyone to take some time out of your day today, and write your congressmen and representatives, telling them that you support Mr. Thrasher's demand, and that they also need to demand the resignation of Senator McConnell. We are providing a link under the Take Action portion of this article to make it easy to find your representatives. Make today the day you stop bitching about what is wrong online, and take action by telling your representatives what you want them to do and how you want them to represent you!
Now is the time for all conservatives in Kentucky to contact your representatives and tell them you support Mr. Thrasher and his demand for McConnell to resign. Conservatives all across the country need to contact their representatives as well, and inform them that they need to stand behind Mr. Thrasher and demand the resignation of Senator McConnell. You can find your representatives by clicking the link below.
Today, we removed Google AdSense from The R-Syndicate website. AdSense was added in an attempt to help offset some of the costs of hosting services for the website. Last year, we battled with Google for 3-months to "re-establish" our analytics connection, then 1-month after getting it fixed, they notified us that our AdSense revenue would be restricted because of "abuses". After that 30-day period had expired, 30-days later we get the same notification. Google Analytics shows us that we had 222 page views in the last 30-days. The hosting service is showing that we had over 1,300 in that same period! To date, Google has only paid out $100, after over 2-years of participation in their program. Therefore, we are saying F-U to Google and their AdScam!!! If you are in a position to make a small donation to help support our efforts here at the R-Syndicate, it would be greatly appreciated.
2021 02 06: This keeps getting more ridiculous! Von's Back Country Preps channel received a second strike today. It's looking like he will be completely wiped from ScrewTube in the very near future. Please be sure to follow him on Rumble. His channel there is: ONUS3
2021 02 03: We have received a number of emails/PM's over the last few weeks where people are telling us that they are getting banned from YouTube, and have never made a video. YouTube is now banning people based on the comments they make in the comment/chat sections of other people's videos. Mark Dice published a video this morning discussing this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=boyqB4qQ8dYThis . This is also why we have been telling people to be careful about what they say in these public forums. Not only do your comments risk the creators' voices being taken away, but it risks your voices from being taken away as well. We urge everyone to keep things civil and use code words when necessary. Remember, sometimes you have to dance around the rules when you are playing in someone else's sandbox...
2021 02 02: Von's Channel, Back Country Preps, has received a strike for the "Truth" video he put out last year. He is restricted from posting and doing livestreams for one week. The explaination give by YouTube was, "Content that advances false claims that widespread fraud, errors, or glitches changed the outcome of the U.S. 2020 presidential election is not allowed on YouTube." In th e mean time, you can find his videos at Rumble on his ONUS3 channel.
2021 01 11: A major purge of conservatives has once again begun today. At 12:00am, Amazon purged Parler from its servers for refusing to censor content (fast enough) that they deemed inappropriate and violates their (arbitrary and biased) terms of service. This afternoon, some of the biggest companies in the world suspended donations to any politician that supports President Trump, or voted against certifying the 2021 election in favor of Biden. Some of the largest banks in the world are also putting limitations or halts on donations to (conservative) political action committees and candidates. In a memo to employees, Citigroup’s global government affairs head, Candi Wolff, said, “we want you to be assured that we will not support candidates who do not respect the rule of law.”
Big thanks to Caz at 4thDimension for finding this info! Turns out that the whole Q-anonsense movement is eerily similar to a psy-op used by the Soviet Union in the 1920's! The Soviets created a fake anti-Bolshevik movement supposedly headed by high ranking members of the military that were opposed to the communist take over. The plan was called "Operation Trust". The operation was used to identify the opposition and keep the monarchs from making any moves against the Bolshevik's, while they waited for the fictitious military group to come to their rescue. Don't believe us, just search for "Bolshevik Operation Trust" in your favorite browser, and you'll find LOTS of information about this!

The Prepared Mind Patreon Members PRIVATE Facebook page has been censored. Members have been telling OOMAN that their posts are not showing up on the site. We received the following notice today:
"In the last 90 days, Facebook removed several posts from your group because they went against our Community Standards. We've turned on post approval for your group, which means an admin or moderator must approve posts until Jan 4."
Please be patient until (at least) January 4th. Joleen and OOMAN will get the posts approved as time allows. Also, please be careful about what you post.

14 April 2020 Update: Good News!!! Thanks to the efforts of everyone in our community, John's channel has been restored! John made a video last night, and hopefully we can resume as normal. Thank you for all the tweets and emails. We couldn't have done it without you!!! Replay of last night's live announcement is scheduled to play at 8am PST: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nM5T1mwqIA4
13 April 2020 Update: John will be posting new content to his backup channel. Please visit and subscribe here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC_m8I5_nNqzPFeEw7lrIY2w/about We need to get the subscribers number up so that he can use all YouTube features.
We also just received notice that friend of the R-Syndicate, Erin T Scott, has had her channel locked out and is unable to recover any of her posts. Erin's channel revolves around homesteading, economic, and geopolitical commentary. Her new channel is: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCchWxOkDWEMbACbWi3SCqOA . Please visit, resubscribe, and show her the support of the community!!!
12 April 2020 Update: Two of the three videos that were flagged by YouTube have been restored. This should allow John to post new content. Until that third video is successfully appealed, he will not be able to go live. John and Joleen will put up a Tweet to start a campaign. When that is up, please like/heart it and retweet it as much as possible to put pressure on YouTube to fully restore the channel. Thank you!!!
John Is Posting A Status Update On Patreon. Please Watch As Soon As It Finishes Uploading!!!
Message from OOMAN: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gsXneY5kTro
Horsleg has a good idea. If you’re on twitter please send YouTube this message:
"We demand you restore THE PREPARED MIND channel. It does not violate guidelines. This is a personal or political attack & we demand you restore the channel immediately!
During John The Prepared Mind's livestream tonight, the broadcast was abruptly ended after 24 minutes. John received notice that a STRIKE was issued against his channel. He received a WARNING a couple days ago for violating community standards, and that a second infraction would result in a STRIKE, which would prevent any live broadcasts and new videos being posted.
John asks that everyone send emails to YouTube demanding that they fully restore the channel. Please use respectful language, as any inflammatory language or threats will not help the cause. It is extremely important that we get this platform back! In the mean time, John will continue to do the daily livestreams on Patreon. Please join us there and keep this channel alive! https://www.patreon.com/ThePreparedMind/posts If Patreon becomes unavailable, John is also on BitChute (https://www.bitchute.com/channel/yTkj9V6jkk60/ ) and Brighteon (
We will update this story with an email address for YouTube as soon as we can find it. If you have an email address, please sent it to email@example.com so that we can post it. We will also provide additional information and updates here as they become available. Thank you to everyone for your support!!!

25 March 2020: Less than 4-days since a Shelter-In-Place (SIP) order went into effect in Illinois, IL Governor Pritzker is floating around the idea that the order may have to be extended beyond the original April 7th date. He says it may be extended if the number of hospital stays from COVID-19 increases. (OpEd: So basically that means there is a 99.9% chance of extending the SIP, because hospitalizations will increase. He's planting the seeds in the heads of the sheeple...)
23 March 2020: As of today, 9 states have issued Shelter-In-Place (SIP) orders. In addition, many cities in other states have also issued such orders. It is estimated that more than 25% of the US population is subject to SIP orders, with more states/cities expected to issue SIP orders this week. We are keeping a sharp eye on what is going on, and will report on any credible information that comes out. Join John at The Prepared Mind Channel on Patreon for twice daily live broadcasts M-F, at 8:00am (PST) and 4:00pm (PST), for his latest observations, thoughts, and opinions. Be safe and be prepared!
