Nevada Families for Freedom has been enabling constitution minded, conservative and pro-family men and women to participate in the process of self-government and public policy making. This work will help preserve individual liberty, respect for family integrity, public and private virtue, and private enterprise in the State of Nevada and in America.
Nevada Families' achievements prove that citizen-volunteers can make a difference in our local communities, in Carson City at the State Capitol and in Congress. We also work to elect candidates at every level and articulate pro-constitution, conservative and pro-family policies through the media.
Nevada Families has published the Nevada Families Voter Guide every general election since 1988. Nevada Families asks candidates the hard questions so that voters can be informed where candidates stand on critical issues. The Voter Guide also includes the voting records of state legislators on important issues.
We need your support! The leadership of Nevada Families for Freedom has represented Families, Taxpayers and the Unborn every Nevada Legislative Session since 1971. No other organization has provided this critical leadership so consistently. We operate solely on the free will gifts of those who wish to support our efforts year in and year out. Your contributions make our work for Life, Liberty and Family possible.

BRICS, why you should care
What is BRICS?
Why should you care?
BRICS is the acronym for Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa. They formed an economic alliance in 2009 with the purpose of escaping the economic dominance of the U.S. dollar.
In 1944 Allied leaders from 44 countries met at the United Nations Monetary and Financial Conference in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire to rebuild the international economic system. The countries agreed to keep their currencies convertible to dollars which was tied to the price of gold. Of course at that time the dollar was back by gold.
This all changed in 1971 when President Nixon closed the gold window which had allowed nations to convert dollars into gold. This took the dollar off the gold standard and brought the end of the Bretton Woods agreement.
After that, U.S. agreements with Saudi Arabia gave rise to the Petrodollar creating a system where all oil is traded in dollars. Countries who want to buy oil all needed to pay for them in dollars, hence the name petrodollar. This system which is backed by nothing but the U.S. dollar fiat currency and has been a monopoly for decades is now breaking down. The fact that the world has had to buy oil in dollars has insured the U.S. dollar has value allowing the private Federal Reserve Bank to continue to print dollars, creating world-wide inflation and forcing other nations to trade real goods for fiat dollars.
The U.S. has been very serious about enforcing the use of the Petrodollar monopoly. In 1999 Saddam Hussein began buying oil in Euros. This ultimately led to the Iraq War in 2003 and Saddam Hussein’s murder.
The U.S. intervened in 2011 in Libya creating revolution to see that Muammar Quaddafi was murdered when he began working for a gold dinar. In 2009 Gaddafi suggested to the African continent to switch to a new currency, independent of the American dollar: the gold dinar.
These are two examples of the determination of “the powers that be” that control the U.S. government to maintain the monopoly and power dominance to the U.S. dollar. And you thought it was about democracy and patriotism….
The BRICS economic organization started in 2009 and represents 40% of the world’s population.
BRICS held a conference in Johannesburg, South Africa which started August 22, 2023. Six countries including Saudi Arabia and Iran have been invited to join BRICS as well as, Egypt, Argentina, United Arab Emirates, and Ethiopia. With the addition of these nations, BRICS controls 80% of the world’s oil. Over 40 other nations have expressed interest in joining BRICS.
The objective of BRICS was well stated by Putin in a remote presentation to the BRICS conference.
He “emphasized that de-dollarization is "gaining momentum". He said the dollar's receding global centrality is an ‘objective and irreversible’ process.” He noted that if measured by purchasing power parity, BRICS has already surpassed the Group of Seven leading industrialized nations – accounting for 31% of the global economy, compared to 30% for the G7. (G7 included Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, United Kingdom and the U.S.)
“Over the past 10 years, mutual investment between the BRICS member states has increased by six times. Their total investments in the world economy have doubled, while cumulative exports account for 20% of the global total,” Putin said.
Putin also took a swipe at the US and West's "Illegitimate sanctions… seriously weigh on the international economic situation," and the "unlawful freezing of sovereign states’ assets" - in a message sure to be greeted positively among many aspiring BRICS applicants. "We are consistently increasing fuel, food and fertilizer supplies to the states of the Global South," he added, while also blaming international food shortages on the West’s "unlawful" sanctions.
Chinese President Xi Jinping who is attending the BRICS conference said according to the Financial Times, "China will push the BRICS bloc of emerging markets to become a full-scale rival to the G7 this week, as leaders from across the developing world gather to debate the forum’s biggest expansion in more than a decade."
With China and Russia working together to “dedollarize” which means to end U.S. economic dominance through the dollar, we need to pay attention to what the BRICS economic organization’s objectives and ultimate impact will be.
There has been talk about BRICS replacing the dollar reserve currency with a gold backed currency, but statements made before the most recent conference said that it was not time yet. But the BRICS nations are building an economic union which will eclipse the U.S. dollar allowing them to escape from U.S. hegemony and control.
Will this mean that in order to perpetuate the U.S. dollar hegemony that “the powers that be” will take us to war…WWIII to protect that domination?
It will ultimately result in the collapse of the fiat U.S. dollar leaving Americans financially impoverished. It is extremely significant that Saudi Arabia, whose agreements have required trading in oil to be in U.S. dollars, has been approved to join BRICS. This is a definite challenge to the Petrodollar and our way of life.
Have you done all you can to prepare for hard times? Are you out of debt, have you accumulated the essentials of food, clothing, fuel, first aid, and “every needful thing”? Do you have savings in non- dollar assets like tools, ammo, firearms, property, gold and silver? Have you prayed about what you should do to prepare?

Central Bank Digital Currency Economic Tyranny
During the 2023 Nevada Legislature we opposed AB231 which included a portion in the changes to the Uniform Commercial Code which changed the definition of money to include Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) as money. We successfully had this portion of the AB231 bill amended out. We were alerted to this dangerous change by an interview of South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem on Tucker Carlson which exposed this dangerous change.
There is no CBDC yet. However, we must be aware that this is the objective of those controlling our Federal Government. In March of 2022 Biden signed an Executive Order “directing the U.S. government to assess the technological infrastructure and capacity needs for a potential U.S. CBDC in manner that protects American interests.” Make note, that’s not your interests.
Interestingly, Biden’s Executive order came after the private Federal Reserve Bank issued their paper on Money and Payments: The U.S. Dollar in the Age of Digital Transformation, in January of 2022. They are preparing to implement a CBDC.
AB231 excluded all other forms of digital currency like Bitcoin from being considered as currency. It appears that the objective of those working for a CBDC is to control all digital assets. Think China and Social Credit Scores. This is how CBDC will work. The money in your bank account will be digital currency. It will be controlled by the government. If you want to give a donation to your church or an organization and it’s not “approved” you will not be allowed to contribute. Consider what happened to the truckers in Canada who were opposing the covid lockdowns. Their bank accounts were frozen as were the bank accounts of any group that was collecting money to help the truckers.
It will go beyond ideology. Like New York City tried to prohibit the purchase of extra large soft drinks, “the powers that be” will be able to limit what you can buy. If you go beyond your 15 mile city you won’t be able to buy gas or if you’re on the health problem list, that pizza you wanted to buy will be off limits.
All economic freedom and hence all freedom will disappear. There is no freedom, as our Founders understood, without the right to control your own property which of course includes money.
The private Federal Reserve Bank has begun to prepare for CBDC implementation. All of their documents perpetuate the ruse that they are protecting the public, insuring individual privacy, public transparency and just considering CBDC. https://www.federalreserve.gov/publications/files/money-and-payments-20220120.pdf
Hog wash! We know that after the covid lockdowns “the powers that be” are hungry for more complete control of the population. There is no more totally inclusive way to control people than by controlling their money.
FOX News reported in November of 2022: That Klaus Schwab, leader of the World Economic Forum, said he respected China’s "tremendous" achievements at modernizing its economy over the last 40 years. He declared on Chinese television that China is a role model for many countries.
China is governed by the absolute rule of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) which does not allow people to practice the religion or belief of their choice, and has no tolerance for dissent or criticism.
In 2014, the CCP announced a moral ranking system whereby individuals, government organizations, and companies are ranked based on social credit. Comparisons have been drawn to environmental, social and governance, or ESG, scores being used by major financial institutions and global organizations in the USA to create a type of social credit system designed to influence behavior and transform society. (And I would add enslave the populace.)
Schwab wrote in 2019 that ESG scores are necessary for stakeholder capitalism. "‘Stakeholder capitalism,’ a model I first proposed a half-century ago, positions private corporations as trustees of society, and is clearly the best response to today’s social and environmental challenges," he wrote. "We should seize this moment to ensure that stakeholder capitalism remains the new dominant model." https://www.foxnews.com/world/world-economic-forum-chair-klaus-schwab-declares-chinese-state-tv-china-model-many-nations
Hello slavery here we come! with Klaus Schwab, the Federal Reserve Bank, and Biden leading the way. Sounds a lot like KJV Revelations 13:17 “And that no man might buy or sell, save he had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” Sounds like a CBDC bank account!
Central Banks Are Fostering An Extinction Level Event
August 23, 2023 – Gregory Mannarino writing for the Trends Journal:
U.S. mortgage rates here in the United States have just risen to their highest level in 21 years. Meanwhile, despite all the talk about how raising rates would somehow tame inflation, and that it was just temporary, and even transitory, inflation continues to rise. Moreover, by the Fed’s own admission, “inflation continues to outpace every projection they have made.” Moreover and overall, food inflation continues to outpace everything else. With energy inflation a close second.
The fact is this. The Fed. along with every other central bank, has absolutely no interest whatsoever to contain or stop inflation.
If you need to know one thing it is this: ANY CENTRAL BANKS POWER RESIDES IN ONLY ONE THING… IT’S ABILITY TO INFLATE.
It should now be clear to everyone as to the REAL reason why the Fed., along with the European Central Bank and The Bank of England have been raising rates. These institutions are in the process of fostering a global middle-class extinction level event. Effectively cutting off the availability of credit to small businesses and putting ever increasing pressure on an already struggling middle class…
