Buy This Stock Before Biden Signs the CHIPS Act Tomorrow

Posted August 8, 2022

Dear Outsider,

President Biden is set to sign the $52 billion CHIPS Act into law tomorrow.

This comes just as Nancy Pelosi is getting back from her controversial trip to Taiwan.

The Chinese government didn't like it all, threatening military action.

If you didn't know, Taiwan is the world's largest chipmaker.

It all starts to make sense, doesn't it?

The world's powers are vying for control over the multibillion-dollar industry.

It's a crisis.

And where there's crisis, there's opportunity.

Let me explain...

Our politicians say our lack of chipmaking is a national security threat.

They may be right, but it seems like everywhere we turn these days, there’s a new threat.

Russian disinformation campaigns, Twitter bots, Bitcoin hackers, COVID-19, monkeypox, nuclear war...

We’ve got to be careful out there.

Unfortunately for us, Americans are at high risk of these digital, physical, and weaponized attacks.

On the digital front, security threats surrounding the popular TikTok app resurfaced this year.

At the end of June, FCC Commissioner Brendan Carr sent a letter to Apple CEO Tim Cook and Google CEO Sundar Pichai, saying “TikTok poses an unacceptable national security risk due to its extensive data harvesting being combined with Beijing’s apparently unchecked access to that sensitive data.”

The problem is TikTok’s parent company, ByteDance, is Chinese-owned, meaning it has to answer to the Chinese government, which doesn’t hold the same privacy standards as U.S. companies.

On the physical front, the Department of State has increased travel restrictions to dozens of countries due to risk of wrongful detainment.

Last month alone, the department updated dozens of countries and added new ones to the “Do Not Travel” list, including China and Russia.

For example, Americans are advised not to travel to Venezuela due to “crime, civil unrest, poor health infrastructure, kidnapping, and the arrest and detention of U.S. citizens without due process or fair trial guarantees. Exercise increased caution in Venezuela due to terrorism and wrongful detention.”

Finally, on the biological weapons front, there’s new data that suggests humans should not be giving their DNA to companies like 23andMe (NASDAQ: ME) because it could be weaponized against them.

This is what Democratic Congressman Jason Crow said at the Aspen Security Forum two weeks ago:

You can actually take someone’s DNA, take their medical profile, and you can target a biological weapon that will kill that person. People will very rapidly spit into a cup and send it into 23andMe and get really interesting data about their background. But guess what: Their DNA is now owned by a private company and can be sold off. We have to have an open and public discussion about what does the protection of healthcare information... look like? Because that data is going to be procured and collected by our adversaries for the development of these systems.

Another warning at the forum came from Republican Sen. Joni Ernst that bad actors can use agricultural DNA data to destroy crops and livestock.

Needless to say, it would extremely dangerous for nefarious actors to get ahold of our private information, whether it’s online data, travel itineraries, or DNA.

And if all that wasn’t bad enough, we’re starting to get a much clearer picture of the war in Ukraine and who’s profiting from it all...

The Journalist Who Faced Death to Expose the Truth

Award-winning Canadian journalist Aaron Maté went viral when he exposed information about the Ukraine crisis that previously would've been denounced as a fringe conspiracy theory.

Here’s what he said recently in a YouTube interview with Russell Brand...

NATO was created to counter the Soviet Union. The Soviet Union ceased to exist at the start of the 1990s. Why does NATO still exist, and why is NATO still expanded? Well, a good hint for why is if you look at when NATO was heavily expanded at the end of the 1990s. When the U.S. Senate was to vote on the ratification of expanding NATO, the U.S. weapons industry poured tens of millions of dollars in lobbying money. It was one of the most expensive — if not the most expensive — lobbying frenzies ever. Why does the arms industry care so much about expanding NATO? It’s not about Russia. The Soviet Union no longer exists, so what is this about? It’s a market for them. Having all these new states in NATO means that all these states are obligated to be up to NATO standards, which means buying the weapons of NATO manufactures, predominantly the U.S.

He goes on to explain that Russian tensions ramped up under Trump’s presidency when he killed the INF nuclear arms control treaty, which was barely reported by the mainstream media because they were solely focused on "Russiagate," which turned out to be a disinformation scam.

Oof.

All the while, U.S. politicians were positioning themselves in the stock market to profit off the crisis they helped create.

Undercover Arms Deals

There’s so much money flowing into this modern-day arms race that our lawmakers have been jumping in with both feet trying to make a quick buck.

Just two days before Russia invaded Ukraine, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene purchased American oil stock Chevron (NYSE: CVX), defense contractor Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT), and renewable energy company NextEra Energy (NYSE: NEE).

She even tweeted about her savvy purchases, saying "War and rumors of war is incredibly profitable and convenient."

Rep. Virginia Foxx bought energy companies Plains All American Pipeline (NASDAQ: PAA), Phillips 66 (NYSE: PSX), and PPL Corp. (NYSE: PPL), rightly betting that energy prices would skyrocket.

It's not just weapons and energy, though.

Our politicians have been profiting from semiconductors as well during this scuffle.

To make some extra cash, the Pelosis have been buying up semiconductor companies ahead of the CHIPS bill that's on Biden's desk as we speak.

Most people think of these chips as the technology used in everything from phones and cars to guided missile systems.

They're not wrong, but there's also a top-secret military technology reliant on these chips that no one is talking about except our defense and aerospace expert Jason Simpkins.

No one knows this topic more intimately than he does, as he's cultivated decades of experience in the field and has dozens of undercover contacts. And those contacts just tipped him off to a brand-new piece of technology that's about to go mainstream.

This is likely why we're seeing so much political buying ahead of the CHIPS bill and such a huge push to get it passed.

Because this top-secret technology is poised to unleash $7 trillion of new wealth fast.
