I never like to predict dates, but this one is obvious. And if I am wrong, it won't be by much,
maybe a few weeks. It's not because I have insider information, it's because of the way things are
unfolding. When you put them all together, the result can only be a full blown bloody revolution
of the people against a tyrannical government.
America has always been the "land of the free and the home of the brave". The American spirit
built this land and all Americans take great pride in their heritage and their accomplishments. And
rightfully so. But things have changed. Really changed, and not for the better. Since 2008 when
we had the financial meltdown, Americans have been faithful and patient, waiting for the
government to make things good again. But instead of them doing that, they have instead made
things worse. Unemployment is high, gas is high, wages are low, the debt is high, sentiment is low,
the future looks bleak, but Washington is living high on the hog. Wall Street and Washington are
not suffering, but the rest of the people are. Corruption is out in the open, new laws and
executive orders are a weekly event, all of which take away more liberties and freedoms from the
people. Governments don't serve the people anymore, they only serve the banksters and big
business. How much longer will the people put up with this?
When a society reaches this point, only one of two things can happen. Either the government
changes it's policies and begins to work for the good of the people again, or the people revolt. In
this case, the chances of the government backing down is almost impossible because they are
controlled by the elite. And the elite have their agenda laid out. So that leaves only one option;
revolution. But will it be a peaceful demonstration demanding change, or will it be violent. The
peaceful process is usually tried first because no one wants a war. And if that doesn't work, then
each man has to fight for his rights. But I believe we will skip the peaceful process this time and
Most Americans know that their system is totally corrupt. Wall Street, Washington, the FBI, the
CIA, DHS, and the Supreme Court just to mention a few are all puppets of the shadow government.
What chance does an American stand to fight a peaceful war against tyranny with such odds
against them? It's not even worth trying, the corruption is so widespread. Look at what happened
to Joe Arpaio. His Cold Case Posse has proven that Obama's birth certificate is a fraud. But now he
is not able to get any government department or official to take it to the next step. They shut him
down. So what chance do you think you have? This is what the American people are up against and
they know it. So all that is left is a violent revolution in the name of Liberty, Freedom, and to
Defend the Constitution.
I don't believe the American people will start the war. The war will be started by one of these
three events. A financial event, a gun event, or a false flag event. One of these will be the last
straw. The whole world is in financial crisis. America is deeply in debt. The stock market and the
bond markets are overbought and ready for a major correction. The derivatives market is very
fragile and could crack at any time. The banking crisis starting in Cyprus could spread to Europe
and America very quickly. The US dollar is quickly losing it's reserve currency status. No matter
where you look in the financial sector there are major problems just waiting to happen. Any one
of these could set off a chain reaction which would escalate into war.
If it is a gun event then I think a revolution will break out immediately. The American people
realize that if they give up their guns they will become the elite's slaves. They will not do that. If
they refuse to comply, the government will send out their goons to try to seize the guns. This will
produce pockets of resistance which could easily escalate into a full blown revolution.
The last possibility would be a false flag event which the government would create in order to
bring in martial law. This is the most likely of all events because it would fit their timeline and
they could manifest it whenever the time is right. It could be any type of event as long as it
produces the desired results. And it would give them the most options and again make it look like
they are just trying to help keep law and order. And it would give them justification to impose
Why do I say 3 months? Because DHS is moving their armoured vehicles around the country. The
plastic "fema coffins" are being transported to various camps. They are getting their personnell
organized. But the main reason is because the elite want to get on with their agenda before too
many people wake up. They have many things on the back burner right now. They have to deal
with Syria. They need to have their war with Iran. They have to deal with North Korea. The Middle
East is a mess. They need to get the home front under control and martial law in place so that
they don't have to bother Congress for permission anymore, they can just do it. Once the home
front is secured, they can devalue the dollar, fight all their wars, crash the economy, it's all
within reach, and it's all for "the good of the nation".
Because of the nearness of these events, it is most important to get ready for what is coming.
Hunker down with food and water and whatever other supplies you will need. Put your affairs in
order. Prepare for the worse and hope for the best. And above all....make peace with God. Jesus
said "Unless a man is born again he cannot enter the kingdom of heaven". Before you go into
battle.....get born again. To find out how go to www.ItsHisStory.com. It's a very brave thing to
fight for one's country and for freedom, and against tyranny, but one has to also consider that
there will be casualties. If you're born again and happen to be one of those casualties, you will be
rewarded with a home in heaven and all that you have fought for will be worth it. Wouldn't it be
absolutely awful to fight so hard for freedom and then to spend eternity with the devil and the
tyrants and the elite? That would be totally counter-productive wouldn't it? Get on a winning team
first, then go fight for what is right.
God Bless You and God Bless America!
Homeland Security Insider Warns
Orchestrated Collapse of U.S.
dollar ‘has begun’

Homeland Security insider warns orchestrated collapse
of U.S. dollar 'has begun' Tuesday, April 02, 2013 by:
Jonathan Benson, staff writer
(NaturalNews) The countdown clock is ticking as the insanely evil cabal known as the "global elite"
prepares its final moves for a complete world takeover. As relayed by Canada Free Press (CFP), an
insider at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), which is America's very own
reanimation of the Nazi SS, recently delivered an ominous warning that America's days are
numbered, and that Americans basically need to ready themselves for the worst, which is yet to
Not only is a complete collapse of the U.S. dollar on the very near horizon, according to the
unnamed source, but a single, uniform currency system is already in the works to take its place.
All that needs to happen now is for the final hammer to drop, so to speak, an event to truly shake
the people and wake them out of their drunken, entertainment-imbibed stupors. But when this
finally happens, it will already be too late for anyone to actually do anything about it.
"The first shots in a global economic takeover were fired in Cyprus," explains Doug Hagmann from
CFP about the situation as it is currently playing out. "It is a plan for a one world Communist
economy where the 'middle class' will be wiped out through a series of events that will have the
same ultimate effect as we are seeing in present day Cyprus."
And just what, exactly, happened in Cyprus? The mainstream media claims it was a simple
emergency "tax deal," a "levy" designed to pull the country out of crisis. But in reality, the people
of Cyprus, and those with money in Cyprus banks, were literally robbed of untold billions of
dollars by the central bankers, who overnight imposed an unannounced freeze on a large portion
of depositors' money. According to more recent reports, up to 40 percent of depositors' cash could
be apprehended as part of the deal.
Federal Reserve recently stole more than 25 percent of Americans' savings and investments
with 'quantitative easing' scam
But what is happening in Cyprus is also happening in the U.S. Very few Americans, it turns out, are
aware of the fact that the Federal Reserve's quantitative easing scheme, which intentionally
injects more paper money into the general money supply, causes inflation. And inflation leads to
devaluation of money, which in essence is just another form of stealing from the people to bail
out the central bankers.
Though these cash injections might lead to immediate economic jump starts, they never last, and
the long-term consequence of their repeated use is hyperinflation and destruction of the currency.
And the unfortunate truth of the matter is that all levels of government have been infiltrated with
globalists serving the interests of the central bankers at the expense of the people.
"The plan for a global currency or a one world economic order is a matter that transcends political
parties," writes Hagmann. "Those who continue to argue in the Republican-Democrat meme are
doing nothing more than providing entertainment to distract people from the real issue, that of
the global elite versus the rest of us."
"The top of the pyramid in this Ponzi scheme is filled with members of both U.S. political parties
who are systematically pillaging us and our future generations into financial debt, bondage and
slavery. It is a plan that has been in the works for centuries. The problem, however, is that we
have been conditioned not to think that big. Yet, the lie is that big."

The Greatest Story Ever Told About
The Greatest Man That Ever Lived
Get on a Winning Team - Here's God's Free Gift To
At Christmas time, when the presents are under the tree, there is a gift there with your name on it waiting to be
opened. It was bought for you by someone who loves you. But, even though it has your name on it, it is not
yours until you receive it and open it.
In the same way there is another FREE GIFT with your name on it waiting to be opened. This FREE GIFT is the
gift of salvation which Jesus Christ bought for you becaues He loves you. He paid for your sins by dying in
your place because he knew that you couldn't pay for them. Now he offers you this FREE GIFT so you could
spend eternity in heaven with Him.
To receive your FREE GIFT, thank Jesus for dying in your place and ask him to forgive your sins and to be your
Lord and Savior. Then you can open your FREE GIFT and here's what you will find inside.
1. Every sin you ever committed will be totally forgiven.
2. Jesus will prepare a place in heaven for you so that when you die you will go to heaven to be with him
3. He will be your best friend, someone you can talk to about anything. And he will always help you and watch
Jesus wants you to have this FREE GIFT! Jesus wants to be your best friend!
Do you want to be his? If you do, then take a minute to tell him so right now.
Jesus said " I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. (John 14:6)
When I first read this many years ago, I thought that either Jesus was who he said he was, the Son of God, or
else he was the biggest liar that ever lived because who else would say something like that. Jesus said that
there is only one way to get to God, and that is through him. There are teachings that say that there are many
ways to get to God. Jesus said that is not true, there is only one way and He is the only way. The reason for
this is because he is the only one that died for our sins. No one else did. And for us to spend eternity with God,
our sins have to be forgiven. Hebrews 9:22 tells us that "without the shedding of blood there is no
forgiveness". Jesus was the only one that fulfilled that requirement. We deserved death, but because God
loves us so much, he gave his Son who was the perfect sinless sacrifice to die for our sins so that we could be
re-connected to Him.
Jesus said " I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again. You should not be
surprised at my saying You must be Born Again" (John 3:3 & 7)
What this means is that you were already born once by entering physical life. You now need to be born
spiritually. This goes way back to Adam and Eve. God placed them in a beautiful garden called the Garden of
Eden. He said that they could eat from any tree in the garden except the tree of the knowledge of good and evil
or they would surely die. They disobeyed God and ate from it. That is when they died spiritually. Ever since
then man has been dead spiritually, not having a relationship with God. Now Jesus made a way for us to be
Born Again and to be re-connected to God.
Jesus said "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whosoever believes in him shall
not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16)
God made us a promise. If we accept his Son Jesus as our Saviour, he will give us eternal life with him in
Heaven. That's a pretty good deal, who doesn't want to go to Heaven. All we have to do is believe in Jesus.
God must sure love us alot if he went to that extent just to make a way for us to be re-connected to him. The
word believe means to acknowledge, to trust in, and to rely upon in the original Greek. And that is what God
wants us to do. Acknowledge that Jesus was the Son of God that died for our sins. Trust in him. And once you
see what an awesome friend he is, to rely on him for everything. We can't lose. And God always keeps his
promises. So if we do our part, we can be sure that God will do his part.
I pray that you would chose to accept Jesus as your Saviour. It's easy to do, just tell him Thank You for dying
for your sins and ask him to come into your life and be your Lord and Saviour. Just find a quiet place and pour
out your heart to him. He is a great listener and will be more than happy to be your friend forever. You will find
that he is the best friend you will ever have.
If you don't want Jesus as your friend right now, that's okay. He will still love you and watch over you. And he
will wait for you. When you are ready, he will welcome you with open arms any time you want him as your
friend. All you have to do is ask whenever you are ready because he will never impose himself on you or ask
you to do something you don't want to do....it's always your choice. He has already chosen you, now he wants
you to choose him. He would love to have you spend eternity with Him in Heaven, but that is your choice, not
his. I pray that you would choose to do so, even right now. Not only to make sure you go to Heaven, but also
to have the best friend you could ever have until then.
There is more information on different topics of the Bible on this website, just click on the link below. When
you do ask Jesus to be your Saviour, talk to him every day, find a good Church to go to, and start reading your
Bible to find out more about Jesus. It will Change Your Life like it changed mine and so many many other
people's lives as well.

Our current financial situation was not bred out of incompetence, but by design
DHS Insider update: It has begun
- Doug Hagmann (Bio and Archives) Tuesday, March 19, 2013

Much like my high-level source within the U.S. Department of Homeland Security outlined in a series
of interviews beginning last year, the orchestrated collapse of the U.S. dollar and the entire world’s
economic system has begun. The first shots in a global economic take-over were fired in Cyprus as
my esteemed colleague and founding editor of Canada Free Press, Judi McLeod laid out in frank
detail in her column yesterday and her follow up today.
Please read it and heed her advice, or suffer the consequences of your own normalcy bias that such
an event will not happen in the United States, Canada, or from wherever you might be reading this. It
will, and the plan appears to be on schedule for a shot across the bow later this spring here in the
West, with a more aggressive take-over starting sometime this fall, according to my source.
To those needing a quick refresher, the plan is quite simple and can be summarized by the Clinton-
era quip attributed to political strategist James Carville, “the economy, stupid” and the June 9, 2010
statement by former Obama czar Van Jones, Socialist extraordinaire, “top down, bottom up, inside
out.” It is a plan for a one world Communist economy where the “middle class” will be wiped out
through a series of events that will have the same ultimate effect as we are seeing in present day

The latest from “DHS Insider”

Benghazi explained: Interview with an “Intelligence Insider”
Based on the events in Cyprus, it should be quite clear to even the most vocal critic of the legitimacy
of the information provided to me by my source within the DHS as published on this web site is no
longer at issue. The U.S. dollar, the backbone of world currencies and the proverbial firewall
preventing the erosion of our national sovereignty, is the ultimate target of a takedown by the global
banking interests controlled by a handful of banks and families of the “royal elite.”
The plan for a global currency or a one world economic order is a matter that transcends political
parties. Those who continue to argue in the Republican-Democrat meme are doing nothing more
than providing entertainment to distract people from the real issue, that of the global elite versus the
rest of us. The top of the pyramid in this Ponzi scheme is filled with members of both U.S. political
parties who are systematically pillaging us and our future generations into financial debt, bondage
and slavery. It is a plan that has been in the works for centuries. The problem, however, is that we
have been conditioned not to think that big. Yet, the lie is that big.
Our current financial situation was not bred out of incompetence, but by design. The occupancy of
Barack Hussein Obama as the putative President of the United States was a plan in the making long
ago, to usher in this oppressive system where we will be left at the mercy of the global ruling class. It
is not by accident that we have been prevented from knowing exactly who this man is, from the
controversy of his birth records to his college transcripts and even his social security number.
Contrary to what the state-controlled media wants you to believe, these questions have never been
answered with any measure of authenticity.
For example, does anyone honestly believe that it is merely a coincidence that Obama’s alleged
mother, Stanley Ann Dunham-Soetoro, just happened to work with Timothy Geithner’s father, Peter
Geithner, at the Ford Foundation in Indonesia? Is it reasonable to believe that the Republican party
had no knowledge of the background of Barack Hussein Obama? Yet not one word from the
Republican establishment as they not only watched, but facilitated the takeover of the United States
from within. As I’ve written before, our nation is a captured operation.
The plan was set into motion long ago, stemming back to the founding of the United States and the
temporary resistance to the central banking system. In 1913, the creation of the Federal Reserve set
the countdown clock in motion for the complete subjugation of the United States to the interests of
the global bankers and the global elite. The secret supra-governmental cabals such as the Council
on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission worked behind the scenes, under the cover
provided by the complicit media, to bring us to this point in history. Perpetual wars were induced to
occupy the masses while the chess pieces were placed into their current positions. We are now
about to pay the price for our inability or unwillingness to confront the establishment and incremental
advancements leading to our own demise.
DHS source: Everything is not “coming up roses”
According to the most recent information provided to me from my source within the Department of
Homeland Security known as “Rosebud,” the final preparations are being made to deploy heavily
armed federalized forces onto the streets of America. They will be deployed under the pretext of
“restoring and maintaining order from the chaos brought about by the economic collapse,” adding
that “many will demand and embrace their deployment on the streets of America. They will get
what they ask for, and more.”
Much like the security theater we have seen following the attacks of 9/11, we will be subjected to the
jack-booted control of a federal army whose allegiance is not to the American people, but to the very
architects of the chaos.
“This is the reason that drones are flying over U.S. cities and farmland, and gun control legislation is
on the fast track for complete implementation,” stated this source. “How can people look at the
situation in Cyprus and not think it won’t happen here? It will, and the blowback will be unlike this
country has ever seen. Surveillance, disarming the public, and conditioning the people to believe it’s
for their own safety is and has been part of the plan all along. Anyone owing a gun will be
demonized and described as contributing to the problem.”
“What happens when the middle class loses much of their wealth, or it is confiscated, by the stroke
of a pen or a keyboard? What will the stores look like when people, unprepared due to the damn lies
of the corporate media and the shills for the ruling elite, run to empty out everything they can get
their hands on as the world, as they know it, collapses around them?”
It was during my most recent contact with my source yesterday that he admitted that the situation
will be blamed not on the bankers and the elected leaders who are raping us of our wealth and
buying power, but on “right-wing, gun-toting Conservative ‘militia’ groups who believe that the
situation is orchestrated.” And, of course, it is orchestrated.
“There is no Republican-Democrat argument to be made anymore. It’s all political theater to keep
the majority of the masses occupied while the true enemy has already captured both parties,” he
added. “They are all in on it, either knowingly or unwittingly, the takeover, that is. And it’s getting
harder to believe that there are any who are unwitting accomplices at this point.”
“When the curtain is pulled back to reveal the true agenda of a single digital world currency, the
people who have been yelling the loudest about such ‘conspiracy theories’ will be specifically singled
out and demonized. They will be blamed for causing the panic we will see, and of course, dealt with
by the army we asked for, accepted and even tolerated.”
Anyone who still believes that the information provided by this insider is “doom porn” or some self-
created fantasy need to look at the events taking place in Cyprus. It’s coming to America. It has

Meanwhile, pray that what is happening in Cyprus this weekend is not precedent setting for
EU theft of private bank accounts a “sacrifice” to mainstream media
- Judi McLeod (Bio and Archives) Tuesday, March 19, 2013

The mainstream media downplaying of what is happening in the Mediterranean Island of Cyprus this
weekend is already muddying the water.
Tens of thousands of unwitting little people have had their bank accounts ripped off over the long
weekend by their own government, in a fashion where their ripped off funds were already a fait
accompli before word began to leak out over social media.
Media downplaying notwithstanding, the unvarnished truth about what is happening in Cyprus is
both precedent setting and staggering in dimension.
Yet mainstream media reports are already describing the robbery of ordinary depositor’s money as a
“one-off levy”, and writing “the first time a deal has called for savers to sacrifice some of their cash
As the Brits, who have already come to the rescue of their military personnel and ex-patriots would
The European Union is run by mainly socialist politicians whose agenda is based on the
redistribution of assets and goods. America, on which so many other countries in the world are
dependent, is now under the clutches of a Marxist president following the same playbook.
Outgoing President Demetris Christofias of Cyprus is a Communist. They say Christofias was the
“only” Communist in the EU, but how far away from Communism is Socialism?
An indication about how the EU socialists feel about communists? Under the EU’s rotating
chairmanship, Christofias, the communist, chaired EU meetings from July 1st until the end of 2012.
Describing the 9.9% levy on savings over C100,000 and a 6.75% levy on savings below C100,000
as a “one-off levy” would be akin to a caught-in-the-act bank robber saying he was only planning to
rob the bank once. Stealing money from savers then describing it as sacrificing some of their cash
holdings, is an outrage.
The governments of our day never sacrifice, many getting rich while serving public office.
The story of the Cyprus levy on savings is further clouded by media chatter about the Russian banks’
cross-board loans to Cypriot-based Russian companies which totaled $30-40 bn at the end of 2012,
or equal to 15-20 per cent of Russian banks’ capital base in Russia, and 5-6 per cent of their gross
Ordinary bank depositors should not lose out no matter how many cross-board loans to Cypriot-
based Russian companies exist.
Nor are big banks in bed with big government politicians an anomaly peculiar to the beleaguered
Island of Cyprus.
The hypocrisy of socialists in bed with big banks is jaw-dropping.
Two days before Cyprus depositors were relieved of their cash, the Deutsche Bank’s global head of
FX strategy, Bilaf Hafeez gave a speech indicating the euro area needs a role model that people
across Europe can respect.
“I can only think of one figure that is respected by most Europeans and has never sinned, Jesus!”
Hafeez said. (Business Insider, March 14, 2013)
Incredible to note that the Deutsche Bank’s research department transcribed Hafeez’s speech and
sent it out to clients in a note.
The EU threw the image of the Savior over at their formation 14 years ago, replacing His image with
that of Europa, Woman on a Bull, whose image is permanently parked in front of the EU
Parliamentary Building in Strasbourg with a corresponding statue in front of the EU Commission
Building in Brussels.
Meanwhile, pray that what is happening in Cyprus this weekend is not precedent setting for other
nations. If this blatant EU rip-off of its own people is allowed to stand, unscrupulous socialist
politicians in office will set policy that forces their populations to sacrifice some of their cash holdings
to greedy governments the world over.

Should you leave the USA before the collapse?
Words of wisdom from someone who tried
Wednesday, December 14, 2011
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger
Editor of NaturalNews.com (See all articles...)
(NaturalNews) One of the most common questions I'm asked today from people who are aware of
what's really going on is, "Should I leave the USA to get away from the coming police state?" Three years
ago, I would have said YES, but today, after having experienced such an effort myself and now having a
clear understanding of the ramifications of such an effort, I must urge people to reconsider. As you'll
read here, you may ultimately be far safer and more successful living right where you are, in your "home
country," even if that home country becomes a police state.
I've lived in many countries, by the way: Taiwan, Australia and Ecuador. I've traveled extensively
throughout Asia, giving seminars in Singapore, Hong Kong and Malaysia. I've traveled across England,
France, Spain and even Portugal. Spent quite a bit of time in Central America and South America. I speak
decent Spanish and decent Chinese, so there's almost nowhere I go in the world that I can't speak to the
local people in either English, Spanish or Mandarin Chinese. I've seen extreme wealth, extreme poverty
and extreme corruption in all its world flavors, and I've seen what corruption does to nations and its
populations, first hand.
I don't claim to be a prophet of any kind, but today I'm a bit wiser, a bit more experienced and a bit less
foolish than I was a few years ago, and I'd like to pass on whatever nuggets of wisdom might help you
and your family prepare for the powerful global changes which have already begun to unfold.
Here, I share with you five powerful realizations you need to keep in mind when considering where to
locate (or relocate) before the collapse becomes a reality. (Time is growing short, so read up...)
For starters, there is a universal truth you must accept if you hope to make a truly wise decision about
where to locate: Corruption is everywhere.
Realization #1 - Corruption is far worse
outside the USA
If you think the USA is corrupt, you should try living in Peru, or Bolivia, or Panama. And if you think that's
corrupt, head over to Haiti for a double heaping serving of corruption.
Yes, we may all legitimately complain about the USA, but from what I've seen everywhere around the
world, the United States is still less corrupt than most places in the world. Yes, there are bad apples
everywhere throughout local police, federal FBI agents and even the court system, but for every bad
apple there are probably three times as many honorable people who are truly just trying to do their jobs.
In years past, I served in a non-profit support role, the local police in Tucson, Arizona, and I came to
know them as some of the most upstanding, honorable peace officers I've ever met. Yes, they had a
history of outrageous corruption (which you'll find in every police force from time to time), but they
rooted out that corruption and restored integrity to their operation. You'll find the same dedication to
honest public service all across the nation, even if there is a little corruption that normally goes along
So don't make the mistake of thinking you can escape corruption by leaving the USA. You are actually
likely to discover MORE corruption elsewhere. For example, in Ecuador, where I lived for two years and
held a local driver's license, it wasn't unusual for me to be stopped at an armed military roadblock and
asked questions. These were staffed with soldiers carrying what appeared to be variants of the standard
U.S. issue M4 rifles (AR-15 in the civilian editions). They never gave me any trouble, it turns out. They
asked a couple of questions and looked at my documentation, then waved me through.
In fact, I had many friends in law enforcement in Ecuador, and I spoke with them regularly. Sure, they
were a little corrupt, but not in an over-the-top criminal way like we see with the FBI in the United
States actually masterminding terrorist plots and then magically "discovering" those plots just in time to
halt them (http://www.naturalnews.com/034325_FBI_entrapment_terror_plots.html).
Costa Rica has been described as a "police state" by numerous people who have visited or even lived
there. Yes, the country if a beautiful paradise in terms of climate, and it is perhaps the most socially
advanced nation in Central and South America, but like all such nations, it has a socialist police state
South Americans love socialism, it turns out. And this has everything to do with preparedness...
Realization #2 - Many cultures do not
practice long-term preparedness thinking
In observing all this first hand, I've come to the conclusion that the embracing of socialism throughout
South America is the result of cultural short-term thinking.
For example, throughout South America, people often buy prescription medicines one pill at a time.
They buy a bag of twenty screws from the hardware store, then return to the store after they run out to
buy another twenty. This is often infuriating to the "gringos" who are trying to build a house, for
example, because they operate with the idea that you should just buy 5,000 screws all at once and have
plenty to get the job done. I can assure you from first-hand experience that such a concept is completely
alien to a great many South Americans (most notably in rural areas).
I make no judgments about this, by the way. There are pros and cons on both sides of this equation. But
in my experience living in Ecuador, finding people engaged in preparedness planning was virtually
impossible unless they were of European descent. For example, rural Ecuadorians often buy a small
baggy of spices in a quantity for cooking one meal. And in doing this kind of thing, they nickel-and-dime
themselves into actually losing money because they don't take advantage of the purchasing efficiencies
realized through long-term planning. The idea, for example, of buying large quantities of facial tissue at
a Costco or Sam's Club is completely foreign to most South American cultures (more so in rural areas
than urban). Even if they might save 40% from buying in bulk, their cultural tendency is to buy one tissue
box at a time, paying a much higher overall price over time.
This concept is also reinforced by the very heavy reliance on state-run lotteries throughout South
America. In any nation, high participation in lotteries is a powerful demonstration that a culture lacks
the cognitive coherence necessary for intelligent financial planning. You see this heavily reflected
throughout Peru and Brazil, by the way. You'll even find this in many poorer areas of rural USA where
the lack of mathematics education (and, perhaps, an irrational belief in luck) motivates many people to
hand over their money to the state. That's why the mathematically inclined call the lottery "a tax on
people who can't do math."
There is, of course, an interesting up-side to short-term thinking, because the very same phenomenon
might also be called "living in the moment." Some in the new age movement call it "the power of NOW."
South Americans know all about the power of NOW, as you'll clearly see on a Sunday morning when
driving your car down the road, weaving around drunken citizens sleeping in the ditches, sometimes still
clutching an empty bottle of sugar cane alcohol. The night before, they all lived in "the now," you see,
and they weren't necessarily thinking about the hangover implications that would inevitably arrive the
You see, to actually get anything done in society, you have to live at least a little bit in the future.
On the food production front, by the way, it is extremely difficult to buy a John Deere tractor in many
Central and South American nations. Much of the food production there is still done by hand (not as
much in Brazil, of course, where agricultural mechanization is in full swing...).
In Texas, by comparison, John Deere tractors are available everywhere. More importantly, there are lots
of people who know how to fix 'em. Given that a tractor is one of the most fundamental work
multipliers in agriculture, if you hope to survive the coming collapse, you need a reliable tractor on your
land in a community that's familiar with tractors, and you need a few hundred gallons of stored diesel
fuel to power it through the disruptions. It's no exaggeration to say that one gallon of diesel fuel can
replace the labor of twelve men working twelve hours. It's a powerful force multiplier if you own the
If you get a tractor, by the way, avoid all those more recent John Deere tractors which are fifty percent
electronics and plastic. Buy the old ones, made out of iron and grit, because they're the only ones that
will still operate after an electromagnetic pulse attack, in case you were wondering.
Climate reveals a lot about the planning
tendencies of any culture
Getting back to the preparedness mentality of different cultures, climate shapes cultural tendencies, too.
The climate in Central and South America is so much more amenable to easy food production (except at
very high altitudes) that there really isn't a cultural impulse to engage in behaviors such as "storing food
to survive the winter." With food literally falling off the trees year-round in places like Ecuador, Peru,
Bolivia and Brazil, generations after generations of people there have settled into a rhythm of day-to-
day living with relatively little planning. The very best preparedness planners, not surprisingly, are
people whose ancestors survived harsh climates and brutal winters.
A lack of planning in South American culture is also evident in the surprising lack of family planning
you'll find there, where it's not unusual to find women with four, six or even ten children, none of which
seems to own a decent pair of shoes. It makes you seriously wonder about the "thinking ahead" portions
of the brain and why they have not been activated in some people. There is a part of the brain -- the
future planning part -- that can imagine a particular future emerging as a result of today's actions and
then use that imagined future to reshape today's actions in order to improve the future (which
eventually becomes the NOW, of course, as you've no doubt noticed). People who are cognitively skilled
at this process are, by definition, good planners. They tend to have better outcomes in life. Those who
are poor at this skill, for whatever reason, tend to have poorer outcomes in life.
Women's rights advocacy groups correctly point out that a lack of family planning among women usually
stems from a cultural devaluing of the female, which then leads to a chronic lack of women's education,
subsequently correlated to startlingly high birth rates. The best way to reduce birth rates in developing
nations, it turns out, is to either build more schools or just go the Bill Gates route and vaccinate
everyone into a state of total infertility. (If you're an evil globalist, it's so much easier to just inject
women than educate them...)
Why does all this matter? I've learned over the last few years that the best place to be in a collapse
scenario is living around a bunch of other people who are also prepared because they are long-term
thinkers and planners. You might want to live in a Mormon community, in other words, as they are
typically the best prepared.
You might also find some preparedness communities in places like Ecuador, Uruguay, Panama or Costa
Rica where there exists a critical mass of preparedness-minded people who tip the scales in your favor.
So that's definitely a solid option for those who are still intent on leaving the USA or Canada and looking
for preparedness options elsewhere. I do know first-hand that there are some very viable ex-pat
communities in both Panama and Costa Rica where a critical mass of aware citizens already exists. Lots
of libertarians down there... but watch out for "retirement communities" in these countries, which are
populated by people who have no interest in actively surviving anything because they figure they're
close to dying anyway.
You do NOT want to live around a whole city of people who culturally and habitually lean toward short-
term thinking rather than long-term planning. A city full of starving children with mothers living in total
poverty who can barely afford their next meal is not a good backdrop against which you want to build a
survival retreat, especially if you're living out in the country by yourself.
Read books by Jared Diamond (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jared_Diamond) if you really want to
understand the long-term implications of geography and climate on the development of human culture.
You will come to understand that in cultures where food comes too easily, over time there comes to
exist a systemic lack of long-term planning in the minds of the citizens. This is a red flag for anyone
seeking a preparedness destination.
Realization #3 - Don't be the foreigner
Another important point to remember in all this is that if you're, let's say, a white person living in a
white town in America, you blend in. You can walk around anonymously -- at the grocery store, the
shopping mall, the gas station, whatever. But the minute you move to some country town in South
America (or Thailand, or whatever), then you suddenly stick out like a sore thumb.
In other words, if you're a 6' 1" white guy walking around a town of 5' 8" brown-skinned people, do ya
think anyone will notice?
You bet they will, and when they see a 6' 1" white guy walking around, what they really see is a walking
You're a symbol of wealth, and the poorer the country you go to, the more wealth disparity you'll find,
of course. And what you need to understand is that wealth disparity breeds contempt. So while you're
driving around in a brand-new Toyota 4x4 (which I never did, by the way), the locals are looking at you
and thinking to themselves that they could never afford that vehicle in their LIFETIME.
Why does this matter? From a practical perspective, it means that in a social breakdown scenario, these
people have an instant idea of where the goods are. Who has the money? The white people! Who has
the nicest houses, cars and electronics? The white people! (Or "the foreigner," even if you're not white.)
What I learned from this is that I'd rather be an "average" white guy living in an average neighborhood,
driving an average car than sticking out like some sort of person who appears to be relatively well off.
That's why today I still live in a modular trailer unit in Austin, I still drive a Toyota pickup truck, I dress
like a rancher in blue jeans and flannel shirt, and nobody gives it a second thought when I'm out in
public. I blend in, and that's far wiser than sticking out.
Some people want to look rich and popular, so they wear a lot of bling, and they drive a high-end car
they can't afford, and they live in a house they can't pay off, and they try to fool everybody into thinking
they're rich and powerful. I'd rather fool people into thinking I'm NOT powerful. Because underneath all
that, I actually am quite capable of defending myself, or taking decisive action, or just quietly removing
myself from the situation if required.
God help the mugger who tries to mug me on the street someday, because I don't dial 911. Then again, I
don't walk around looking wealthy enough to mug in the first place. In fact, half the time when I walk
into a hardware store in Austin to buy some equipment, I still have dirt and grime on my face from
working on the farm that morning, and I've got mud on my jeans and grease on my shirt from greasing
the hydraulics of the tractor loader bucket.
The point is, if you try to stand out in a time of crisis, you're an idiot. Blending in is so much wiser, I've
learned. And I learned some of this the hard way, being an idiot myself in years past.
So the bottom line on this point is simple: Live where you fit in. If you speak with a Cajun accent, live
around Cajuns. If you're black, don't be the one black guy in a white neighborhood (nor do you want to
be the one white guy in a black neighborhood). It's not racial segregation I'm advocating, by the way, it's
simply a preparedness attitude of blending in so you don't attract unwarranted attention to yourself and
your daily activities. If you can find a mixed-race neighborhood, then you can usually blend in no matter
what your physical appearance.
Don't draw attention to yourself
You're going to have far better success at preparedness, survival and even home defense if you can
engage in preparedness activities without drawing attention to yourself. So if you're out at the local
Wal-Mart, let's say, buying up a case of rubbing alcohol to add to your first aid kit, you don't want to
leave any kind of strong impression a cashier there who, for example, might later tell some FBI agent,
"Oh yeah, there was this 6' 2" guy with red hair and an old-style Western mustache, and he bought up a
cart full of shotgun ammo, rubbing alcohol and bandages. I thought that was kinda weird..."
So another tip in all this is that if you're buying first aid supplies, or stored food, or anything you need to
stay prepared, buy things in small quantities, and better yet use the self checkout lanes at local
retailers, so you're not even interacting with a cashier at all. And don't be a moron and buy too many
items of anything at once. It's far better to make multiple trips (to different stores, preferably), buying
up smaller quantities of things and then combining them at home.
And what kind of things should you have? Well, if you want the full details, get my Be Prepared, Not
Scared course that I recorded with Robert Scott Bell, as we go over the entire preparedness list covering
food, first aid, emergency communications, lighting, safety and much more:
I've also created what I believe to be a very powerful audio recording called "Five Mental Strategies for
Surviving Anytime, Anywhere" which is included as a free bonus to our "Surthrival" course recorded with
Daniel Vitalis. Read about it here:

Realization #4 - You cannot escape the global
I learned this with the help of Alex Jones of InfoWars.com. I was talking to him in the studio one day,
during a commercial break, and he was asking me about Ecuador. Then he said something profound:
"You can't escape the police state, you know. It's global."
And he's right. Think about the controllers and how they operate: It's the global banksters, the global
pharmaceutical giants, Monsanto, Coca-Cola, Exxon and all the other evil corporations that infect our
world with disease and suffering. These corporations run the global governments, and if you don't
believe me, just ask John Perkins, the former "Economic Hit Man."
Listen to my interview with Perkins here:
You will be astounded by what you'll learn there, probably. But the upshot of it is that tyranny is a
global phenomenon, and you cannot escape it by simply crossing some national boundary.
The simple truth is that our entire world is under assault by criminals right now, and those criminals are
deeply embedded in the financial system of Goldman Sachs crooks and Federal Reserve elitists. They are
dominating economies across Europe, North America, Asia and even Central and South America. They
are planning an economic implosion so they can steal the world's wealth. All assets backed by paper
may become worthless in 2012 in the years soon thereafter. This is all by design, and it's global.
With economic implosion comes social unrest, and with social unrest comes martial law. So you can
expect martial law to be declared in many nations around the world, and in my experience, if you're
living under martial law, it's preferable to blend in so that you don't attract unnecessary attention to
your own activities. (And by this, I don't mean anything unlawful or subversive. I just mean fundamental
commonsense things like buying extra food and supplies, for example, to defend your family and your
local community. And have yourself a reliable mechanical lead-slinger as well.)
Realization #5 - You are far safer to hunker
down than try to go mobile
A lot of people talk about having a backup retreat somewhere that they will "drive to" or "fly to" when
the collapse strikes. In my view, this is foolish. Highways will become kill zones targeted by marauders,
and using vehicles on roads will only get you either robbed or dead (or maybe both).
To a gang of armed looters who forgot to plan ahead before the collapse, there's no more juicy target
than an RV loaded down with stored food, ammo and gold, and if you're stupid enough to drive one of
those as you're trying to get to your destination, you'd better have your own cavalry along for the ride,
or you probably won't get very far.
Anyone who has studied military tactics, gang mentality or historical accounts of what happens when
governments fall knows that roads are to be avoided at all costs. The only safe way to go from point A
to point B is to hump it on foot, cross-country style, and even then you'd better only walk at night or you
risk being shot by someone defending their own land.
Once you start actually thinking about all this, it doesn't take long to realize that the far safer strategy is
to live in your castle starting right now. Stay put, stock up, and find a way to defend it.
Want a great book on how to accomplish that? Buy and read "Holding Your Ground: Preparing for
Defense if it All Falls Apart" (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0615497551)
It's written by "Joe Nobody," which itself is a lesson in laying low. This book isn't about turning your
house into a concrete bunker armed to the teeth, because that's just an invitation to be hammered by
an armed gang of looters. Rather, it's just as much about using cosmetic deception to fool would-be
marauders into thinking your place has already been hit, for example, and is therefore worthless. This
informative book is really an example "The Art of War-" style thinking for defending your home and your
family, using very clever techniques that go far beyond "shooting back."
Don't expect the book to be well edited, by the way. A lot of the best survival and prepper books have
lousy editing because they're written by people who are experts in practical skills but relatively
inexperienced writers. But who cares? I'm not looking for Shakespeare here. I'm looking for tactics that
really work, and this book delivers. (Wish I could find who really wrote this because I'd like to interview
them here on NaturalNews...)
Getting back to the point at hand, even with a vehicle you can't possibly carry everything you need to
stay safe and prepared, and on top of that gasoline supplies may be impossible to find for a while, so
the very best place to hunker down is the place where you live. That's where you can store your food,
emergency first aid supplies, communications equipment (wind-up emergency radios, for example),
defensive items such as defensive items, solar battery chargers, cooking gear, instructional books,
garden seeds and whatever else you might need to survive an economic collapse.
That's why I've decided to ride out the collapse in Austin, Texas, by the way. Well, not exactly in the
inner city itself, but near enough to the city to be considered an Austinite.
Why Texas? It's not perfect, but it's well-
Why Austin? Because Texas has its own power grid unlike the rest of the nation. Texas can grow its own
food. Texas is the energy capital of the nation and can produce natural gas, diesel, oil and even jet fuel.
Texas has masses of armed patriots who own more guns than they do pairs of shoes, and that makes
Texas practically impenetrable to any invading force.
For example, suppose North Korea launches an ICBM into the high atmosphere over North America and
unleashes an EMP weapon that destroys nearly all electronics
This could theoretically be followed by a naval invasion of forces from Red China and North Korea, both
of which suffer from too many young males that can hardly be fed and might as well be thrown at some
enemy nation as cannon fodder. These forces would plow right through Southern California, with all its
anti-gun laws and totally unprepared populations. Oregon would fare a lot better, thanks to the country
folks who know how to live off the land, and although Seattle would be quickly overrun by enemy forces,
the eastern (country) parts of Washington state would put up a fierce resistance. And any enemy forces
foolish enough to try to make it into Idaho would, of course, be viciously intercepted by highly capable
resistance forces that would snipe, explode and shred the enemy's supply lines, halting any advance no
matter how strongly intentioned. (You do not want to mess with American rebels and patriots in Idaho,
for the record.)
If some enemy force was foolish enough to try to enter Texas, they would be obliterated by a mass of
Texas farmers, ranchers, National Guardsmen, law enforcement officers and ex-military men who are all
locked and loaded to the hilt. That's where I feel safest, in the midst of the best-armed and most well-
skilled riflemen in the country, most of which are upstanding, community-minded citizens who defend
life and liberty. Texas is a fortress of determined men and women who will not, under any
circumstances, willfully surrender their freedoms or their Bill of Rights.
Interestingly, Austin is also a progressive town with lots of raw foods, vegans, yoga studios and amazing
artists. It's a progressive, almost liberal town, surrounded by conservative country folks who ultimately
serve as a safety buffer that protects the city of Austin itself. When SHTF time comes, you can bet all the
unarmed Austin residents will be begging the rural cowboys to protect them from looters and armed
That's why people who don't own guns dial 911 -- because they want men who DO own guns to arrive
as quickly as possible and solve their problem.
Are your current skills based in reality? Or
As you consider where to go in a time of crisis, think about where you are right now. Is your local
community able to defend itself? Do you live among people who know how to repair cars, weld
equipment, repair a rifle, clean fresh fish, grow vegetables, raise chickens and chop firewood? If not, you
might want to think about relocating to a place where you live among some more capable people rather
than the city-minded people who -- let's face it -- live in an artificial reality that's extremely fragile and
won't last but a few days in a true collapse scenario.
If your top skills today are things like: texting while driving, finding the best sales at Macy's, and beating
the level 12 boss on your Xbox video game, then you're not likely to survive very long in a real crisis.
Xbox skills, it turns out, do not translate into the real world. All those people who are currently experts
at artificial skills need to think long and hard about picking up a few reality skills that might help them
in the real world.
You don't know jack, Jack!
Above all, as much as you think you know about preparedness, survival and the like, you probably don't
And that goes for myself, too, even as I study this subject and work to learn as much as I possibly can in
the short time remaining. Do you know how to suture an open wound? I have literally spent an
afternoon reading a suture book and practicing stitches on chicken meat bought from the grocery store.
Seems silly, right? Who spends their Saturday suturing a chunk of chicken? Then again, if you're cut and
bleeding more than a little, I'm the guy who knows how to apply a tourniquet in 60 seconds, sanitize the
wound and sew it up. It will be ugly as all hell, as I'm no cosmetic surgeon, but as long as you didn't sever
some major artery, you'll probably live.
I've also been known to pack open wounds with freshly-cut aloe vera gel. I just stuff it right into the
wound then use a skin stapler to staple the surface shut. Never had an infection problem, as aloe vera
gel is a powerful antibacterial substance that also pulls the wound shut as it dries. It's crude, free and
highly effective. Just the kind of country remedy I like to have handy in a time of crisis. That's why I
always grow aloe vera everywhere I go.
Get some skillz, Jack!
These days, my goal in preparedness is to know as many useful skills as possible, which is why I study
emergency first aid and other practical skills. In a crisis, I can prep emergency food for an entire
community, sanitize water for a small group, perform basic emergency medical procedures on the
wounded or even be part of a rifle fire team that defends a church, for example, against a band of
armed looters. I'm not the best at any one of those things, but I'm useful in them all.
I know how to grow medicine, grow food and (somewhat) handle farm animals. I know how to clean a
rifle, repair a torn belt on a broken piece of farm equipment, operate a John Deere tractor, start a fire
without matches, and stitch back together a torn piece of canvas or clothing.
I still don't know how to field dress a wild pig or deer, but I figure I can always barter with someone who
does, as I've got a complement of other useful skills that they probably don't possess. (I'm not into
hunting or skinning anything. Can't stand to shoot live animals. That's just not my thing, y'know?)
Most of all, I'm determined to survive, and I'm determined to help as many of my fellow human beings
survive with me, to the best of my ability and resources. And that's ultimately what's going to get me
through the coming collapse, so help me God.
Wherever you go, assess the basics
The other day I was thinking about Jim Rogers, the wealthy investor who lives in Singapore and often
appears on alternative news shows like RT America or InfoWars. As much as I totally agree with Jim's
advice on learning Chinese (which is one reason why I speak a fair amount of Mandarin myself), if you
know anything about Singapore, you also know it is perhaps the last place in the world you want to live
in a collapse scenario.
Singapore is a concrete jungle with virtually no usable space for growing food in proportion to its
population. Even worse, Singapore has virtually no water supply and must import a huge portion of its
water from Malaysia, a nation with which Singapore has dicey relations.
The food for Singapore must all be imported from surrounding nations (such as Malaysia), and
Singapore's claim to fame -- a financial hub of Asia -- is in many ways based on the very false derivatives
and fragile debt instruments that are on the verge of total collapse in the years ahead. If Asia suffers
much in the way of economic collapse, Singapore may become a desperate place. Certainly, a
resourceful guy like Jim Rogers can probably weather the storm and still come out on top (he's got
assets in multiple currencies, in many financial institutions around the world), but for your average run-
of-the-mill citizens, Singapore could become a very dangerous place to try to survive.
When people look at relocating for preparedness reasons, they often overlook the basics such as water
resources. That's why I recommend people buy the book "Strategic Relocation -- North American Guide
to Safe Places, 3rd Edition" (http://www.amazon.com/Strategic-Relocation--North-American-Guide-
Plac...) by Joel Skousen. I've been a fan of Skousen for over a decade, and this book will walk you
through the key decision-making process of finding a place that can keep you and your family alive. That
place is NOT New York City, nor Los Angeles, obviously. Those are places to go if you want to DIE in a
But there are many places across North America that are quite suitable for creating your preparedness
retreat as a primary residence. Many of these places even have internet bandwidth available, so you can
potentially earn a living on the 'net while you prepare your location.
If you read the book, you'll discover that Austin has its own pitfalls, including being relatively close to
both nuclear power facilities and the border with Mexico. Both of those are legitimate concerns, of
course, and there's no perfect spot that has everything you want. You have to find the best combination
of factors that matter to you, then do the best you can with the time, skills and resources available to
Timing: Are you prepared yet?
If you're not already well along with your own preparedness plans, you run the risk of missing this train
entirely. 2012 is nearly upon us, and while I don't believe all the Mayan calendar nonsense being
rumored around the internet, I certainly see a financial collapse headed our way in 2012 or very soon
It takes 2-3 years to really get squared away with your retreat if you consider the process of making
good quality soil for gardening, planting some fruit trees, squaring away your irrigation system, getting
some backyard chickens and so on. You can't just "buy a place" and move in and suddenly expect to be
fully covered. Building a retreat requires experience that only time will deliver -- experience dealing with
weather, garden pests, wild predators, knowing the lay of the land and so on. Just squaring away your
own home water supply can be a daunting task if you don't know where to begin, and even getting a
well drilled can be a six-month process in terms of acquiring permits and waiting on drilling companies
(which are often backlogged).
Time is running short. If you're not already in the process of storing the supplies you need -- and
learning the skills that go with them -- you're late. Get on top of this NOW.
And don't worry if you're not in the "perfect" geographic location or the perfect house or whatever.
Work with what you have. A family with skills and just a few basic supplies is far better off than a
wealthy family with a house full of gear they don't know how to use. I can't even tell you how many
people out there just buy stuff, toss it on a shelf and never learn how to use it. That's about as silly as
owning a guitar and thinking you're suddenly a "musician" because you have the gear.
Whatever you buy to be prepared, practice with it and practice with your entire family. Even if you don't
own firearms (or don't want to), a family of four armed with a few cans of heavy duty pepper spray can
make a small group of attackers think twice. Plan ahead for what's coming, and you won't be left behind.

Burning down the house - the coming global
Tuesday, December 13, 2011 by: Mark Sircus., AC, OMD
(NaturalNews) This week a fire might start that will burn the western financial system down to the
ground. Important people like George Soros warned, "The current global financial system is in a self-
reinforcing process of disintegration, the developed world is falling into deflationary debt trap."
I have been holding back this essay for months. It is not a good sign that I am finally bringing myself to
publish it. I have tired of being a prophet of doom so have been waiting for the drums of doom, which
are now sounding loudly. I hope this essay will help people understand what we are about to suffer
through. Mr. George Soros himself warned, "The current global financial system is in a self-reinforcing
process of disintegration, the developed world is falling into deflationary debt trap."
Peter Schiff president of Euro Pacific Capital, identified the state of the Union saying, "Our government
doesn't have enough spare cash to bail out a lemonade stand. Our standard of living must decline to
reflect years of reckless consumption and the disintegration of our industrial base. Only by swallowing
this tough medicine now will our sick economy ever recover."
The Economist writes 'Unless Germany and the ECB act quickly, the single currency's collapse is looming'.
"Mrs. Merkel is possibly underestimating the speed and ferocity at which a market panic could crush her
ambitious integration plans. We also agree that there are a number of potential events that could
become the triggers for such a panic. There is considerable risk that in the case of the failure of a big
bank, a wave of cascading cross-defaults could engulf the system."
Britain's Foreign Office is advising its overseas embassies to draw up plans to help expats should the
collapse of the Euro turn explosive. Almost incredibly, a senior minister has revealed that Britain is now
planning on the basis that a euro collapse is matter of time. British ministers privately warned that the
break-up of the euro, once almost unthinkable, is now increasingly plausible.
Hardly a week goes by, without a major summit between German
Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Nicolas Sarkozy, trying
to devise another clever scheme to save the Euro. Yet after 1-? years of trying to contain the wildfire, -
the Euro-zone's debt crisis is more dangerous than ever.
"The raging European monetary collapse will ripple through America's banking system, completing the
2008 meltdown that never ended because Wall Street fought all reforms. But now, a bigger meltdown
as history repeats a dangerous cycle like the 1929 Crash and Great Depression. History will also deal a
fatal blow to Wall Street. Martin Weiss adds a key warning: No bank bailouts. America's banking system
is bankrupt, structurally and morally.Washington is broken. And thanks to the Occupiers Revolution
the masses will never accept new bank bailouts. Never. They'll toss politicians and overthrow
government first. No new bailouts will be the stake in the heart of Wall Street, ending the ‘greed is
good' power of America's ‘bloodsucking vampire squid,' handing the Occupiers new political power in
Washington." - Market Watch.
- Greece will default very soon.
- The contagion of fear will spread.
- European mega banks will collapse.
- EU governments suffer new credit rating downgrades.
- Spain and Italy are >next to face defaults on their massive debts.
- Global debt markets will suffer a critical meltdown.
- The vicious cycle -- sovereign defaults, bank failures, global depression -- will continue.
We have been living through an agonizingly slow death of the system for years, so at this point, or a
point very soon, the entire system will go down and go down fast like a house does when on fire. Since
2008 all the financial remedies have only made the wood dryer so when things start to burn, when bond
holders lose their shirts, when banks go down, when governments default, the fire will burn hotter.
Accountants know that there is only so far you can stretch, leverage and borrow before the bomb bay
doors to bankruptcy open and the system falls to its doom. Hope has lost its battle against simple
arithmetic and it is frightening to look at the harpoon targeting all of our lives. What we are faced with
depends on the mathematics of balance sheets that are tilting far over into insolvency. Authorities
around the globe will certainly do all they can to keep things stable, but in the end it is inevitable that
the house of cards is going to come crashing down.
"The current system will not so much collapse as evaporate," writes Trace Mayer, J.D., who is predicting
what is called a Kondratieff Winter, which is the correction of a credit expansion. Like a black hole, the
entire world of money and commerce gets sucked into it as money runs out at an increasing rate for
more and more people, towns, cities, counties, states, businesses and countries.
The world financial system is a total fraud. It is one gargantuan Ponzi
scheme, no better than the one Bernie Madoff used to swindle his
friends and neighbors, and thousands of times worse if you add up
the total number of victims it has ripped off over countless generations.
Mayer's chart below speaks volumes about what's going to evaporate. It will be like an attic full of
squirrels running from one end of the attic to another. There is a point when a stampede occurs and in a
credit collapse everyone runs at once into gold and silver and away from paper full of fancy ink and
images. Right now though the squirrels are running to buy up paper instead, American paper and its
worthless values are going up, meaning many other currencies are going down hard.
Just as an individual can go bankrupt no matter how rich she starts
out, a financial system can collapse under the pressure of greed,
politics, and profits no matter how well regulated it seems to be.
Ken Rogoff & Carmen Reinhart
Eight Centuries of Financial Folly
"Much as I'd like to see the end of the extend-and-pretend game, I'm pretty convinced that it's the only
thing left standing between the world as we knew it and the demise of the financial and political system
that went along with it," writes the Automatic Earth. For the few who have used these past few years of
borrowed time to prepare for a general depression and financial collapse one can only be thankful for
the extra time, but it looks like time is just about up.
I have written a lot about the nature of our deteriorating reality and have been watching circumstances
develop for decades. It's a deplorable and absolutely unprecedented situation that has gotten steadily
worse because "the world is controlled by a bunch of genocidal maniacs hell bent on extending the
system for one more day," writes Tyler Durden.
The reality of the situation is this: there are no magic
monetary tools that can fix the global monetary crises hidden
in the basement of the Federal Reserve, the Bank of England,
or any of the others. The fiat moneyinstruments themselves
-- dollars, euros, yen, etc. -- are the problem.
Durden says, "The entire European insolvent periphery is now merely squeezing as much money out of
the core as they can before everything falls apart." September might very well be the month of doom
for the European Union, or at least the beginning of a precipitous fall. Unless aliens land with trillions
lining their pockets it looks like we are headed for another massive credit crunch. "It's not really the end
of the world, but to read some of the analysis and data over the past week, it's hard not to wonder if it's
not the beginning of the endgame at the very least," wrote conservative John Mauldin a few weeks ago.
David Icke is at his best in this video. His lecture on the engineering of economic collapses by those who
think they are better than everyone else is riveting. We are beyond the point where playing the blame
game counts for anything though but Karl Denninger tells us to "Make sure you thank Congress and our
wonderful ‘President,' all of whom are far more interested in making sure that the banksters simply rob
you blind than anything else when it comes to the economy. In fact, by their actions it's clear that's all
they care about," he writes.
"Mankind is reeling under a whopping $158 trillion debt pile that, according to analysts and
economists, might get out of hand if not dealt with carefully. Gulf News takes a look at how this massive
debt pile was created and how the world can get out of this mess. Every human being on earth currently
carries a debt burden of nearly $22,733 on average, if the latest reports are to be believed. Every child is
sharing the same debt burden at birth, as debt growth rates beat the global population growth rate,"
writes Saifur Rahman for the Gulfnews
If someone can't pay his debts, you don't
help him by giving him a larger loan.
The problem of over-indebtedness is tearing the world's economy apart. We're on the cusp of a global
recession that will turn into a full blown depression or collapse because the first world will hit a brick
wall in terms of ability to pay up on its debts. Louis James asked Doug Casey about the coming crash,
about leaving "the eye of the storm and backing into the raging winds of financial, political, and social
turmoil -- What if you're wrong?" Doug responded, "I honestly hope I am, because if I'm right, the global
economic devastation is going to have a very real and significant death toll. The price in human
suffering these fools in government are setting us up for is truly monstrous. As a human being, of course
I'd rather see good times," but he and many others are no longer dreaming of fairytale endings.
The speed of the disintegration said everything. It took
less than 48 hours for London to descend from self-styled
capital of the world into a circuit of burning dystopian hells.
In Kondratieff Winters, or what are otherwise known as great depressions, millions starve. In our next
Kondratieff Winter it will probably be hundreds of millions if not a billion or two who will starve because
we are simultaneously being taken down by Mother Nature who is devastating agriculture around the
globe with floods, drought, fire, cold and heat, and now even radiation exposure will cast a dark shadow
on the agriculture sector.
The gigantic rotting corpses of governments around the world are contracting, stumbling into walls of
debt that they simply cannot get around. Our present way of organizing societies, economies and
government is now visibly falling apart. Calls for economic "austerity" -- reduced government deficits --
are the early warning signs of hard economic contraction -- the early signs of the Kondratieff Winter that
is now starting.
As the crisis mood congeals, people will come to the jarring
realization that they have grown helplessly dependent on a
teetering edifice of anonymous transactions and paper guarantees.
The Fourth Turning - 1997
"Buy a weapon to prepare for what may be the most devastating economic downturn our nation has
ever faced. As one trained in economics, I never thought I'd write those words. However, I'll repeat
them. Buy a gun. The coming storm will not only impose financial hardships for those unprepared, but
also entail a physical threat to you, your family and your property. The threat will come from inside the
halls of government with the constant attack on savings and investments through inflation, monetary
gimmickry and, eventually, the destruction of our currency. The world around us is deteriorating every
day: socially and economically. It's not limited to London," writes Joseph McBrennan, editor of the
Taipan Publishing Group.
Silver Shield has written an essay Five Reasons American Riots Will Be the Worst in the World, that is
just over the top, but in it he says some very serious things to his fellow Americans. "When the dollar
collapses, all American illusions will collapse with it. Deep denial will turn into deep anger. The Baby
Boomer generation's obsessive pursuit for material possessions was matched by their embrace of debt.
The American riots will be the worst the world has seen because of the amount of arrogance, denial,
narcissism, drugs and violence in our society.
Video: Max Keiser: WW3 is on as Wall St. banks plunder economy
I believe the pent-up pressures will explode and what will happen in the course of a few days or weeks
will take our collective breath away. So it's a good idea to start now with some deep-breathing exercises
to give some extra emotional strength to get ready for the event. It is that close. I think most of us sense
it by now -- the approaching danger.
The Burning Platform writes, "As I observe the zombie like reactions of Americans to our catastrophic
economic highway to collapse, the continued plundering and pillaging of the national treasury by
criminal Wall Street bankers, non-enforcement of existing laws against those who committed the largest
crime in history, and reaction to young people across the country getting beaten, bludgeoned, shot with
tear gas and pepper sprayed by police, I can't help but wonder whether there is anyone home. Why are
most Americans so passively accepting of these calamitous conditions? How did we become so
comfortably numb? I've concluded Americans have chosen willful ignorance over thoughtful critical
thinking due to their own intellectual laziness and overpowering mind manipulation by the elite through
their propaganda emitting media machines. Some people are awaking from their trance, but the vast
majority is still slumbering or fuming at erroneous perpetrators."

14 signs that the collapse of our modern
world has already begun
Monday, May 02, 2011
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger
Editor of NaturalNews.com (See all articles...)
(NaturalNews) A lot of people believe the world as we know it is going to end on December 23, 2012.
Nonsense, I say. The far more honest answer is that the end of the world as we know it has already
begun. And it doesn't mean the end of the world; it means the closing of one era and the birth of a new
one. It is a transition between the ages. This particular transition, however, promises to be the most
tumultuous and costly transition humankind has ever seen.
But don't wait around for December 2012 to look for the signs. Here are 14 signs that the world as we
know it is unraveling right now. We are living through the end of one era and the birth of a new one. In
the future, they'll look back and call this all one moment in history, but when you're living through it, it
seems to move forward at almost a snail's pace. But make no mistake: We are living through the
opening chapters of the end of the world as we know it, and on the other side of all this will emerge a
new world that's very different from the one we know today.
#1 - Tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes and tsunamis - At first it seemed like a fluke; but now it's a
pattern. The weather is becoming increasingly extreme. Over 120 tornadoes recently struck the U.S.
Midwest. Texas is on fire and suffering through an extreme drought. And where there aren't fires and
droughts, there are floods. This is only the beginning... watch for more freak weather over the next 18
#2 - The silence of the bees - Colony Collapse Disorder continues to accelerate across North America.
We already know it's being caused in part by chemical pesticides (and possibly worsened by GMOs), but
the chemical industry is engaged in a full-on cover-up to deny this truth while the pollinators of our
world suffer a devastating population collapse.
#3 - The failure of nuclear science - The Fukushima catastrophe proves one thing: Scientists are
dangerously arrogant in their planning of large-scale projects, and they fail to account for the awesome
power of Mother Nature. Nuclear science promised us clean, green energy -- but now it has delivered a
silent, invisible poison that's infecting our planet.
#4 - The vicious pursuit of Wikileaks - In an age of such rampant deceit, there is no room for the truth.
So those who tell the truth (Wikileaks) are viciously pursued as if they were criminals.
#5 - The rise of the medical police state - The armed SWAT raids on Maryanne Godboldo in Detroit are
only the beginning (http://www.naturalnews.com/032091_Maryanne_Godboldo_gun_rights.html). The
truth is that the medical system uses guns to force its vaccines and chemotherapy onto children and
teens across America. The medical system has become so utterly useless, corrupt and dangerous that it
must actually invoke guns in peoples' faces just to "convince" people to take its medicine. This is a
gunpoint-enforced medical monopoly that exists as a threat to our health and our freedoms.
#6 - The increasing frequency of food shortages and crop failures - Notice the spike in food prices?
That's just the beginning: Food prices will continue to skyrocket in the years ahead due to extreme
weather, the loss of pollinators and the global contamination of crops by GMOs. Real food is becoming
increasingly scarce in our world. You might want to think about starting a home garden...
#7 - The runaway destruction of the world by energy companies - The radioactive fallout from
Fukushima isn't the only way in which energy companies are destroying our world: Don't forget about
the Deepwater Horizon and the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico -- a spill that isn't over, by the way.
They're still spraying Corexit in the Gulf one year later!
#8 - The continued GMO contamination of our planet - This may be the worst chapter in the coming
collapse: The widespread genetic pollution of our planet through GMOs. This is a crime against nature
and against humanity. It is a "gene spill" that may never be contained as it spreads its deadly DNA across
the world's food crops, leading to crop failures and starvation
(http://www.naturalnews.com/032167_gene_spill_GMOs.html). The use of GMOs is the closest thing to
"Satanic" that you'll find in modern agriculture. The agenda behind this is pure evil.
#9 - The tyranny and criminal crackdowns targeting real food (raw milk) - When you can't even sell
honest farm food to your neighbors without being targeted and arrested by the cops, something is
terribly wrong with the world. But this is happening today, all across America. Now the feds are even
targeting the Amish! (http://www.naturalnews.com/029322_raw_milk_Amish.html)
#10 - The escalation of the counterfeiting of the money supply - In a failed economic system
approaching collapse, the moronic leaders can only think of "solutions" that actually accelerate their
own downfall. The runaway counterfeiting of money by the Federal Reserve (with its "quantitative
easing" and other counterfeit methods) is a classic sign that the end of our current system is fast
approaching. The economic insanities are obvious to anyone who can still do math.
#11 - The plummeting intelligence of the masses - One of the most disturbing signs that we're already
in the collapse is the great dumbing-down of the masses. The drooling, CNN-watching television zombies
who dominate our landscape offer absolutely nothing of value to the world. They are the "mindless
consumers" who get vaccinated, watch television and eat processed, pasteurized junk food. They're on
psychiatric meds and believe everything the government tells them. Most of these people, of course,
won't make it through the collapse.
#12 - The complete and utter fabrication of the mainstream news - Much of the mainstream news is
now utterly and completely fabricated these days: The reporting on Obama's long-form birth certificate;
the news about the war in Libya; the coverage of the economy and the U.S. debt... it's all so utterly false
and unbelievable that an intelligent person watching the news can't help but explode with laughter. It is
a sign of this collapse that the information sources relied upon by the masses are unable to report the
truth anymore and must resort to weaving politically expedient fictions on everything from health care
and medicine to the fate of the U.S. dollar itself.
#13 - The ongoing pharmaceutical pollution of our world - Beyond the GMO contamination and the
radiation contamination of our world, we are also experiencing the mass pharmaceutical contamination
of our planet. It's not just the pharma factories that dump their products into the rivers
(http://www.naturalnews.com/025415_water_Big_Pharma_chemicals.html); it's also the fact that well
over half the population is now taking drugs almost daily, and those drugs pass right through their
bodies and end up in the water supply where they contaminate the fish
(http://www.naturalnews.com/025933.html). Even beyond that, the drugs end up in the human sewage
sludge that's packaged and sold as "organic soil!"
#14 - The radioactive contamination of the global food supply - Here's one that's really insidious: The
global food supply is now contaminated with the radioactive fallout from Fukushima. We're told the
levels are "low," but we're not told the truth of how radioactive cesium isotopes persist in the food
supply for centuries. How is the human race going to survive its exposure to CT scans, radioactive food,
chest X-rays, TSA body scanners and even the secret DHS mobile X-ray vans that can penetrate your
body with X-rays as you're walking into a football stadium? The total radiation burden on the human
race is now reaching a point of mass infertility. That may be the whole idea, actually.
It's accelerating, too
December, 2012 may be a useful date as some sort of mid-point in the crisis, or perhaps as a trigger date
for some further acceleration of society's rapid unraveling. But make no mistake: We are already living
in the collapse of our modern world. And you have a front-row seat! (Exciting, huh?)
Think about what's happening around you these days. These are the signs of the last, desperate clutches
of a civilization built on utterly unsustainable practices that don't value life on our world. These are the
End Times of the corporate oligarchy; the monopolistic for-profit corporation machine that destroyed
everything in our world in exchange for a slightly higher quarterly earnings report.
In the quest for more money, humanity has sacrificed its food supply, its pollinators, it's oceans, forests
and soils. Greed-driven humans have used other humans as medical experiments and cannon fodder.
We have created wars to sell more bombs, and we've invented disease to sell psychiatric chemicals.
These are the practices of a failed civilization... and one whose days are numbered. Watching it all
crumble is far more interesting than watching it continue its destructive ways, of course, because those
of us paying attention realize a future civilization must rise up in the place of this one after the collapse.
Say goodbye to the false power of institutions
It would be nice if our future leaders remembered the importance of liberty and personal responsibility,
of course. The answer to all the world's problems, it turns out, is freedom -- freedom in medicine,
freedom in economics and freedom from government tyranny.
Because, let's face it: The root cause of most these problems that are bringing down our world right now
is bad government. It is bad government (Big Government) that approved the GMOs. Bad government
enforced the medical monopoly and allowed the pesticides to kill the honeybees. Bad government drove
us into inescapable debt and costly foreign wars. Bad government outlawed health freedom and
protected the monopolistic practices of the food companies, drug companies and chemical companies.
The downfall of modern human civilization is, as you probably guessed, also the downfall of the very
idea that Big Government creates a better society. Because if there's one idea that needs to stay dead
after the collapse, it's the idea that We the People somehow need another group of people
(government workers) to live off our hard work while hounding us with their false authority, directing
every little detail of our lives.
What we need in our world isn't more government, but more freedom. If we had freedom, integrity and
personal responsibility, we wouldn't even be facing the global collapse that has already begun. But alas,
the human race is an infant species and it must learn some lessons the hard way, it seems.
This lesson should be long remembered: If you let the corporations, the banks and the governments run
your economies, your farms and your lives, they will enslave you and steal your future while you sleep;
they will inject silent poisons into the very world around you until you awaken one day to find that all
you created has been destroyed. They will promise you paradise but deliver only death. Beware of any
entity that is not a living person -- no government, no institution, no corporation has a soul, nor a heart,
nor a conscience. They are forces of organized destruction that decimate those things we hold dear
while delivering to us things that will only enslave us or harm us.
Beware the corporation; the government; the non-profit institution working as a front group for private
industry. Never allow yourself to be ruled over by any institution which exists only as a fictional
construct organized from the projection of human greed.
And be ready for the acceleration of the collapse. Because if you are reading this, you are the future of
the human race. You have a duty to stay alive, keep your genes intact, and be around to help create the
Next Society after this one crumbles into history.

Financial alert: Germany's Constitutional
Court decision either means a rapid
Eurozone financial collapse, or inevitable
Tuesday, September 11, 2012
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger
Editor of NaturalNews.com (See all articles...)
(NaturalNews) The financial collapse of the Eurozone may be upon us. This Wednesday, September 12,
the Federal Constitutional Court of Germany must decide whether it is legal for Germany to participate
in the financial bailouts of other nations in the Eurozone.
The court has been inundated with tens of thousands of petitions (not just petition signers, but tens of
thousands of individual petitions) demanding the court say NO to the bailouts and stop draining
Germany's economy to rescue the failed debt spending of other nations.
Here's why this matters:
A NO decision means a rapid financial
collapse of the Eurozone
If Germany votes NO, then Germany stops bailing out Greece, Spain and other nations on the brink of
financial disaster. Sometime in the coming days, weeks or, in the best case, a few months, European
nations start collapsing, complete with bank holidays, riots in the streets and almost certainly martial
This collapse will, at first, cause a flight of capital to the USA, making the U.S. look stronger in the short
term, but given how many U.S. banks are invested in European financial instruments (derivatives), the
U.S. banking collapse won't be far behind.
A YES decision means runaway
hyperinflation across the Eurozone
If the German court votes YES to the continued financial bailouts, then Germany must crank up the
printing presses and start creating money at such a rapid pace that hyperinflation becomes almost
inevitable. Literally trillions of Euros would have to be (electronically) printed in Germany, then
transferred off to other countries like Italy, Spain and Greece, where banksters and governments have
spent themselves beyond the point of collapse and are in desperate need of bailouts.
In this scenario, German citizens would be bailing out governments all across Europe... and that's not
exactly a happy idea among the Germans who are working for a living and thereby having their wealth
stolen away by the state through endless money creation.
Either decision spells financial collapse, just
on different timelines
The upshot of this is that either decision spells financial collapse for the Eurozone. The NO decision
means a rapid economic implosion; the YES decision means hyperinflation spiraling out of control.
Either decision is bad for the Euro. And just as importantly, either decision also spells eventual
catastrophe for the U.S.
Why the Euro crisis will send a financial tidal
wave headed toward U.S. shores
U.S. banks have heavy exposure in European debt networks. When the Euro implodes, the ripple effect
will very rapidly cause catastrophic debt failures of many of the top U.S. banks -- the big banks with
names you know and (foolishly) trust.
We are talking about such a massive exposure that when the stuff hits the fan, U.S. banks will be forced
to declare bank holidays.
A bank holiday, for those who may not know, is when the banks close their doors and announce, "You
can't get your money." The term "holiday" was chosen as a kind of Orwellian linguistic trick to make it
sound nice, if not downright comforting. In fact, it's a bank seizure of all your deposits and investment
This bank holiday may also result in the following devastating effects across the U.S. economy:
• A halting of the use of EBT cards (welfare spending cards)
• A halting of all e-commerce (online retailing) which goes through those banks
• A halting of all commercial payments and transactions through those banks
• A halting of all ATMs that use those banks (you can't get your cash out)
• A halting of all money transfers and checking activity in those banks
• A halting of all PAYROLL from companies using those banks
You don't have to be a genius to figure out what this means. Within a matter of days, we're looking at
riots in the streets, widespread business bankruptcies, and the inevitable Martial Law, complete with
secret arrests, NDAA-authorized killings of American citizens, and the roll out of the government's 1.4
billion rounds of hollow point ammunition to be used against the American people
The global debt meltdown is now impossible
It's not hard to see the writing on the wall with all this. The global debt meltdown that began in the Fall
of 2008 is now reaching a point of criticality. Once the collapse begins, it will be impossible to reverse
until it "hits bottom." And that bottom could be a very deep hole.
I'm not an investment advisor, so I can't give you financial advice. But I can tell you what I believe, which
is that anyone who has money in banks like Chase, Wells Fargo, Citibank and Bank of America is likely to
lose a significant portion of those deposits in the coming debt meltdown.
In case you're keeping track of the numbers, the U.S. government is now $16 trillion in debt, with $4
trillion of that being racked up under President Obama. (That's a trillion bucks a year, yeah, I know.)
This level of runaway debt spending is, as any honest economist will tell you, utterly unsustainable. That
means it must end, and since nobody in Washington has the courage these days to end it responsibly by
cutting government spending and paying down the debt, it must therefore end catastrophically.
The collapse could happen overnight, without
This global debt meltdown could literally happen overnight. You wake up one morning and all your bank
accounts are frozen. Credit cards don't work. Checks don't work. ATMs don't work. You can't even make
a payment on your home, which of course gives the banks their justification to come seize your home
and throw you out on the street. (That's part of their plan, of course.)
Opinions differ widely on exactly when this meltdown is going to take place. Brilliant investment
strategist Max Keiser says the global meltdown will occur before April of 2013, and he's also on the
record saying the U.S. government is going to "fire up the incinerators." That's to deal with the hoards of
hungry, angry protesters who have no jobs, no savings and suddenly no welfare money to spend, either.
Whether you believe that apocalyptic vision or not, even in the most optimistic case, the debt collapse is
inevitable. The laws of mathematics cannot be altered by merely hoping so. "Hope and change" doesn't
actually work. You have to have REALITY on your side. Responsible spending. The federal government is
the most irresponsible organization on the planet, as it is shoving us all into a financial catastrophe
which will have an immense cost in human suffering and death, not to mention loss of freedoms.
It is difficult to imagine an "orderly" collapse. Hence the need for Martial Law, over a billion rounds of
hollow point bullets purchased by the government, and so on. Did you really think all the 1.4 billion
rounds of ammunition were just for "training purposes" as claimed by the mainstream media? C'mon.
Stop being so naive. They're for deployment against the people when the collapse comes, got it?
The government is also working on creepy robotic land drones that can march around the cities with
infrared cameras and shoot mounted weapons at selected human targets. You can see the video
Or click PLAY to watch it here:
LS3 - Legged Squad Support System
This is not science fiction. It's a DARPA-funded robotic army initiative. They already have the robots
playing a game they call "follow the leader" but which is actually "pursue the human prey."
The U.S. military is also about to deploy a new wave of "Kamikazee drones" that carry an explosive
payload and fly directly into their targets, setting off a massive detonation. This is reported in WIRED
(http://www.wired.com/dangerroom/2012/09/suicidal-drone-6-miles-away/) which says:
The "Lethal Miniature Aerial Munition System" -- It's for when the Army needs someone dead from up to
six miles away in 30 minutes or less.
All freedom-loving Americans need to get prepared to not just survive the coming collapse, but also to
defend yourself against an army of military robots unleashed against the American people. That's the
ultimate dream of the global controllers, of course: To deploy an army of mindless robots that won't
question orders when directed to open fire on protesters.

Homeland Security insider warns
orchestrated collapse of U.S. dollar 'has
Tuesday, April 02, 2013 by: Jonathan Benson, staff writer
(NaturalNews) The countdown clock is ticking as the insanely evil cabal known as the "global elite"
prepares its final moves for a complete world takeover. As relayed by Canada Free Press (CFP), an
insider at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), which is America's very own reanimation of
the Nazi SS, recently delivered an ominous warning that America's days are numbered, and that
Americans basically need to ready themselves for the worst, which is yet to come.
Not only is a complete collapse of the U.S. dollar on the very near horizon, according to the unnamed
source, but a single, uniform currency system is already in the works to take its place. All that needs to
happen now is for the final hammer to drop, so to speak, an event to truly shake the people and wake
them out of their drunken, entertainment-imbibed stupors. But when this finally happens, it will already
be too late for anyone to actually do anything about it.
"The first shots in a global economic takeover were fired in Cyprus," explains Doug Hagmann from CFP
about the situation as it is currently playing out. "It is a plan for a one world Communist economy where
the 'middle class' will be wiped out through a series of events that will have the same ultimate effect as
we are seeing in present day Cyprus."
And just what, exactly, happened in Cyprus? The mainstream media claims it was a simple emergency
"tax deal," a "levy" designed to pull the country out of crisis. But in reality, the people of Cyprus, and
those with money in Cyprus banks, were literally robbed of untold billions of dollars by the central
bankers, who overnight imposed an unannounced freeze on a large portion of depositors' money.
According to more recent reports, up to 40 percent of depositors' cash could be apprehended as part of
Federal Reserve recently stole more than 25
percent of Americans' savings and
investments with 'quantitative easing' scam
But what is happening in Cyprus is also happening in the U.S. Very few Americans, it turns out, are
aware of the fact that the Federal Reserve's quantitative easing scheme, which intentionally injects
more paper money into the general money supply, causes inflation. And inflation leads to devaluation of
money, which in essence is just another form of stealing from the people to bail out the central bankers.
Though these cash injections might lead to immediate economic jump starts, they never last, and the
long-term consequence of their repeated use is hyperinflation and destruction of the currency. And the
unfortunate truth of the matter is that all levels of government have been infiltrated with globalists
serving the interests of the central bankers at the expense of the people.
"The plan for a global currency or a one world economic order is a matter that transcends political
parties," writes Hagmann. "Those who continue to argue in the Republican-Democrat meme are doing
nothing more than providing entertainment to distract people from the real issue, that of the global
elite versus the rest of us."
"The top of the pyramid in this Ponzi scheme is filled with members of both U.S. political parties who are
systematically pillaging us and our future generations into financial debt, bondage and slavery. It is a
plan that has been in the works for centuries. The problem, however, is that we have been conditioned
not to think that big. Yet, the lie is that big."
