WalMart and Obits as Harbingers

This new article from the National Inflation Association  http://inflation.us/artificialeconomy.html got me to thinking. It starts out talking about Japan and China and their currencies, and how the Chinese workers are getting to the point of refusing to work 7 long days a week for miniscule slave wages… and they’re striking! 

Then the article goes on to talk about one of China’s biggest retailers here in the U.S., WalMart, which has ceased doing their “rollbacks” on grocery items and has actually been jacking up prices by 51-66%.  Another friend reported that her HEB grocery store out near Austin has been jacking up prices like all get-out.  The upshot of that is, putting it simply, that price inflation is finally hitting. It will be slow at first, but as the old inventory is sold off, it is being replaced by the new inventory at much higher inflated prices.

NOW is the time to be shopping the sales, snatching up the older inventory while you can at the old prices or at sale prices. I picked up some organic canned goods for $0.50 to $1.00 a can and Tom’s of Maine fluoride-free toothpaste for $2.50 a tube at Big Lots. I went to pick up some potting soil at the local garden center, and I also bought a bunch of seeds for 1/2 price.   By all means, hit Costco to stock up on good bulk foods… powdered milk, beans, rice, spices, quinoa, cereals, nuts, canned goods… you name it.  The deals are still out there, so please make use of them.  This may be the last chance to load up  before inflation makes your paycheck worthless. 

In the midst of discussing these things with friends, one friend, as part of her job, has to peruse the obituaries. She reports that the obituary pages have increased, from one page or less to two or three pages on the weekdays and more on the weekends. She cites that the last time she saw this pattern was just before and after 9-11-2001.  She also states that the real number of deaths are perhaps 2 or 3 times that of the obits since the obits cost money for the family to publish. What that boils down to is a lot of people leaving the Earth because they “didn’t sign up for the coming rough times”.  Not everyone that is on the earth is necessarily on the “earth mission”.  This may also explain why I haven’t been able to get through to some friends and family that  they need to be getting their assets under their personal control and stocking up on food/water/silver/gold/survival equipment.  Perhaps they plan on leaving with everyone else that might be dying when the hard times hit?  We know that some 17 million people died (damn near 1/7 of the population) of starvation during the Great Depression, and that was with the currency backed by gold AND 90% of everyone in the U.S. living on farms.  Now, those numbers are inverted with only 10% living on farms and maybe half of them self-sufficient. I’m still worried for these folks, but at some point, I have to let go and allow them to make their own decisions as adults.

Gang… all the signals are out there if you just unplug from the boob-tube and see them. We’ve been given fair notice. We know that the currency will do a melt-down at some point, given that the government has been racking up a couple of trillion dollars of debt each year for several years, and Obummer is planning on more “stimulus spending”. Given that big business owns our government outright and the cabal of private bankers called the Federal Reserve are now buying the T-bills that China refuses to buy any more… that way the Fed is making interest on the worthless paper money they’re printing AND on the T-bills they’re buying with the same worthless paper. We know that the richest people are going to get even richer and Obama’s gonna fiddle while the American empire burns. We know that the cleptocratic corporatocracy that is our government, aided by the mainstream media, is doing their best to convince the American public that they don’t have anything to worry about… and in so doing are setting a lot of people up for starvation.

Historically speaking, when they’ve exhausted their options, they typically take us to war.  The mainstream media has been beating the war drums for a while now. Several predictors are saying that there will probably be another leg of war breaking out, this time with Iran (backed and equipped by the Russians), and a very probable staged terror strike to remove the last of our civil liberties.  When our government gets done, America is going to be rolled back to the police state of the Soviets, with most people working for the goverment to spy on the rest, and a black market the only means to acquire the necessities.  It may take some months before a black market comes together in the aftermath of a hyperinflation melt-down.  Are you equipped to tough it out for that long?

If you go to church, talk to the pastor and make sure he talks to the congregation at length about preparing in advance by storing “every needful thing” to protect themselves.  The time for this prep work is running short.  Price inflation is hitting now. We may not see the BIG inflation hit until first quarter of next year, but things will start getting really interesting this last quarter of 2010. 

Me? Gosh, I’m trying.  I’m not just pulling things together for me and my husband, but also to make sure my little old momma is covered.

What’s Going On In The Gulf?

Okay… did you notice that Obama had auctioned off the rights to drill in all of the coastal areas just before the BP Rig blew up?

And then Obama declared a 6 month moratorium against all drilling in the Gulf of Mexico? That broke all the contracts for all the rig owners, who then scrambled to find new contracts. When they move a rig, it stays put for a while, barring a large storm. 4 big rigs have already left the Gulf to go work for PetroBras in Brazil. More are going to work for Mexico’s Pemex.  An oil rig lease is for several years. Any rig that leaves our coast won’t be back for a long time.

Obama’s 6 month moratorium is chasing all of the rigs out of our Gulf, and therefore all of the oil and gas production.  My prediction is that this alone stands to make the US that much more dependent on foreign countries. Because of this alone, we could easily be seeing $4+ a gallon for gas, and who knows what the cost for natural gas is going to run our heaters this winter. Tell me that ain’t gonna present some difficulties. If people can’t afford to get to work, it will further hamper economic recovery.  It will certainly make groceries get a lot more expensive simply because of higher shipping costs.

At the same time, Obama is using this to push his carbon tax plan… and no, we ain’t buying it. He’s pushing it through the EPA anyway.  The dispersant that BP is using in the Gulf is highly poisonous and the coasts of LA, MS, AL and FL are all finding airborne Benzene levels along the coast to be incredibly high. If you smell anything, get out. Benzene is one of the top most cancer-causing substances around, and the reason why there is so much environmental testing around refineries.

We are currently seeing a lot of saber-rattling between Israel and Iran. This has been buzzing for some months now, and was still up and up front at the Bilderberg Meeting. If they happen to exchange some missiles, it will effectively close the Straits of Hormuz on the Persian Gulf, through which some 80% of the world’s oil supply flows.  That will be a huge blow to the world economy, which is already reeling from currency meltdowns. That will push oil prices here a lot higher still.  We may see $10 a gallon for gas.

My advice is simple. Pray and send positive energy to all of these situations. Ask your angels, ascended masters and good aliens for assistance in stopping and finding solutions for all of this bad stuff.  The reason those illuminati types are trying to trash everything all at once is because we know what they are up to. They are dinosaurs and they don’t even realize they are dying.

In the meantime, please do a few things to prepare for any and all of these scenarios:  Have enough cash in the house to pay for what you need for a month in the event of either having to “bug out” or in the event of an extended bank holiday.  Have enough food and water in the house to feed your family for at least a month… ideally longer.  You might consider pulling your money out of the stock market and putting what’s left of it into gold and silver while it’s still pretty cheap. 

 All I can say is that we live in interesting times. Gee whiz.

Team Up With Other Folks…

Okay… I’ve been ranting on about building up your long-term pantry supplies for a long time now. I got the guidance shortly after Obama got sworn in in 2008, and began executing my guidance slowly.

I have two raised garden beds, and have been sneaking food items in anywhere they will grow. Granted, I’m still in the experimental phase of becoming a farmer. At least I’ve got lettuce, zucchini, some beans and some peppers and herbs working. Still figuring out the collard and mustard greens.

My husband and I have also undertaken a campaign to make sure that all guns in the house actually work. We had to take a vintage target .22 to a gunsmith for professional cleaning, but we got a really good little target pistol out of it. We got out the inherited WWII M1 Carbine and inspected it… just needed to clean out the dust, then get some fresh ammo and a couple more magazines.

Since I’m stocking up for a household of two humans and four cats, I’ve found that sometimes buying bulk is a little too expensive or too big for any one purchase. I’ve got a friend that has another friend, and we three go in together on various items. He’s ordering a carton of the powdered whole eggs from Honeyville Grains, http://www.honeyvillegrain.com , and we’re splitting it three ways. That way, we get the #10 cans of egg powder, for long-time storage,  for about $15 each, thereby saving a couple dollars on each can and saving on shipping.

We’ve also gone in together on a 35 Lb. bag of dried onion flakes. Have you any idea how big a 35 Lb. bag of onion flakes is? It’s a bloody futon!  Between the three of us, we can split that down, suck-wrap it into manageable portions, and have what we desire in the larder.  Most recipes need onions and garlic to taste like much of anything. In fact, most of the recipes I know start with “first you get you a big-ol’ yella onion…”

Talk to your friends and neighbors… get them on the same page and get them into the concept of preparing for some major hiccups in the economy and whatever else, then get them on the bandwagon regarding stocking up. If you’re in the north, you know that you could be snowed in, thereby dependent on your stored food. I’m here in the south, and I’ve been dependent on my stored food for a couple of weeks at a time because of hurricanes. Believe me, being able to whip up a clean casserole out of some rice, canned veggies and a 12 Oz. can of turkey meat is a blessing when the rest of the world is standing in line at an empty grocery store. I’ve found that working from bulk purchases also saves money on groceries in the long term.

To add further emphasis, we know that at the time of the Great Depression, some 90% of all U.S. citizens were rural and mostly self-sufficient, yet we lost some 17 million people to starvation out of a total population of 122,775,046 in 1930.  Check my math, but it looks like we lost 1/7th of our population during the Great Depression!  Since they led us to war to pull us out of the Depression, we know that somewhere between 30 and 45 million soldiers died in WWII, and there is no way to know an exact number for sure.  So we really lost perhaps 62 million people as a result?  Holy catz!

NOW we’re down to perhaps 11% rural, and maybe half of those are self-sufficient, meaning that the other 89% are urban.  Does that mean that out of 309 million, we’re going to lose 1/7th of our population to starvation, or more,  when things finally domino? We know that FEMA has camps set up all over the U.S., ready to take in millions of people. What do you think that would be like?  How many people would just plain disappear if they went into FEMA camps?  No… better to plan ahead and be able to feed your family. It is easier to cycle food through your pantry than to buy it for any price at times of peak demand and panic buying with worthless currency.

What would happen if the dollar crashes?

That’s one question that I get from time to time as my friends and I bandy things about. To say the least, the pre-crash period will be increasingly harsh for we little people, and near term prospects post-crash will be horrific to say the least. Depending on what WE THE PEOPLE do in the meantime will make all the difference in the world about how the long term prospects play out.
Right now, we’re witnessing the replay of the gigantic stock market crash in Europe of 1929, which will be followed almost immediately by a crash in the U.S. stock market. http://www.marketwatch.com/story/eu-bank-failures-will-crash-wall-street-again-2011-10-18?pagenumber=1  Yes, the Great Depression started in Europe back then as it is about to now, but even more important is the level of debt here in the U.S. and how much further we’ve allowed our system to get sucked under to the point where the U.S. cannot print money any more to pay for anything, even as a record number of people are dependent on the government.  Right now we are at the end of a deflationary period, and speeding into a rapid inflationary period. 
The U.S.’s greatest creditors are no longer buying treasuries (our debt) and the Federal Reserve has been buying some 85% of all treasuries for the last several years. This is the very epitome of a Ponzi scheme… printing money out of thin air to be used AT INTEREST by the government, then buying government debt with that thin-air money which would also pay interest. On top of that, the Federal Reserve has been printing trillions of dollars and lending out to foreign banks. Just last week the Fed announced they would guarantee the derivatives debt (gambling losses backed by no assest whatsoever) of Bank of America… some $75 trillion.  The world’s total GDP is only like $60 trillion. You do that math and then multiply Bank of America’s bailout (transfering their private debt to the public sector) times the other 5 or 6 huge megabanks, and we really do have the recipe for a global melt-down. 
The status of the Dollar as the reserve currency of the world has bought us a lot of time, but that time is coming to an end.  A lot of governments are already making arrangements to cease accepting dollars in any form, and most governments are dumping U.S. treasury holdings. 
SO WHAT DOES ALL THIS MEAN?
Okay… the dollar won’t be accepted any more outside the U.S., and the government won’t be able to raise money by selling treasuries, so they’ll try to raise money by other means… jacking up taxes, instituting currency controls, stopping purchasing of precious metals (TSA is already confiscating cash, gold and silver bullion at checkpoints), already raiding Federal Pension funds and likely to nationalize private pensions, 401Ks and IRAs. They’ll grab everything on the way down.
On the flip side, they’ll enact “price controls” that won’t take inflation into account, which will also result in shortages of just about everything… particularly food. 
The French Revolution was all about this exact type of systemic meltdown… rampant printing of unbacked currency, food shortages after price controls and rationing to the point where the people started dragging the banker class to the guillotines!   If you think the protests at “Occupy Wall Street” and “Occupy the Fed” are something, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet. Wait until people can’t afford to feed themselves.
As the money dries up so will essential services. There are already close to 100 municipalities around the country that are declaring bankrupcy, and several states are getting ready to. They will start by grabbing pensions and defaulting on medical insurance. It’s already happening.
There have been several videos about the day the dollar actually dies… one is called “Meltup” on the National Inflation Association’s website http://inflation.us/videos.html    You should get plenty of ideas of how to prepare for the upcoming meltdown.  Short term, you can easily expect runs on the banks and bank holidays, martial law, curfews and checkpoints, greater restriction of freedom and escalating violent crime. You can also expect a lot of people to starve.
Now… how we approach this now is where it gets interesting.  If we allow the globalist oligarchs to have their way with us, whoever survives the meltdown will all be picking cotton on the Rothschilds’ plantation… and there won’t be very many survivors.  David Icke spells that agenda out very succinctly:   http://www.davidicke.com/headlines/55045-david-icke-essential-knowledge-for-a-wall-street-protestor-and-everyone-else  They fully plan on replacing all national currencies with one world electronic currency (no cash) and one world government by them alone.  This is where we gotta be careful.
If, however, we manage to do this right, beginning with throwing out all these bums… beginning with making arrests of all these bankers and the politicians in their back pockets (check their campaign contributors), followed by trials, confiscation of their property and public executions.
Then write-off all debts, since they’re mostly derivative or fraudulently induced anyway, and start fresh with some basic laws on the books and the wherewithall to enforce them. We would actually do very well to start utilitarian state banks that don’t have to pay dividends to investors… there are several states in which those are doing very well.
Pull all troops and equipment back from wherever they are stationed… period.
Enforce our borders and kick out all illegal aliens… period. We need the jobs.
All foreign aid stops… period.
Return government power to the most localized level possible… which is always more beneficial and logical. Government should be from the bottom up, not from the top down as it is now.
Even if we have to completely start from scratch with a new monetary system, even if it means coming down to every state  franking their own currency without paying interest to some bank, then we stand to come out of this mess in pretty good shape.
The lone fact that nobody will want the U.S. currency for probably years means that we will be forced to reboot our own industrial sector with a crafts/manufacturing movement to fill our own needs, which would eventually lead to the creation of a new export economy.  We can essentially return to the post-Civil War America that enjoyed tariff protection of our industry, the expansion of creativity and communications, and internal commerce that benefited all of our citizens, without the encumbrance of taxes or entitlements. Everyone will have to work to earn a wage.
Yeah, long term we could come out of this all right… if we do this right.

Bob Chapman Interview…

The date is Sept. 2, 2011
Gold is $1,883, Silver is $43.31 and Platinum is $1,888. I’ve never seen such a short price spread between platinum and gold… ever… it is usually a couple hundred dollars difference.
I just got finished listening to Alex Jones’ interview with Bob Chapman:
http://www.youtube.com/user/TheAlexJonesChannel#p/u/7/-3DWTXjvRSw
http://www.youtube.com/user/TheAlexJonesChannel#p/u/6/o-7s2BSSrW4
http://www.youtube.com/user/TheAlexJonesChannel#p/u/5/2sM1THNqd8Q
In short, they do this segment together every Friday, talk about the markets and discuss things in general. Chapman spent decades as a Wall Street commodities trader and retired from that at about 51, and shortly afterwards went into the publishing business.  He knows more about this stuff than most people hope to learn.
Chapman offers the following predictions for gold and silver:
He says that gold could easily hit $2,000 by the end of next week, $2200 by sometime in October, and $3,000 to $3,200 by the end of February 2012 as it becomes even more patently obvious that we are indeed in an inflationary depression.   http://www.prisonplanet.com/fearing-an-even-worse-inflationary-depression-ahead.html   He says, “September and the final quarter of 2011 is going to be a wild and wooly affair. If you are not yet into gold and silver related assets you had best start getting involved. If you own them buy more. You have no idea how really wild this is going to get.”
They also discussed the recently published article that Goldman Sachs, one of the architects of the world derivatives meltdown and depression, not to mention the spread of banker takeover and asset stripping of sovereign countries,  has been telling their topmost institutional investors that the U.S. is about 3 months away from complete economic collapse. Goldman Sachs is also advising these special customers of theirs how to profit from the meltdown and chaos.   http://www.prisonplanet.com/even-goldman-sachs-secretly-believes-that-an-economic-collapse-is-coming.html
They also touched on the fact that various federal alphabet agencies are showing their latent corruption.  The ATF has written a set of instructions to gun shop owners demanding that they report anyone purchasing two or more guns at the same time. It specifically mentions long arms like hunting rifles, but it really could be any two guns. The ATF will then show up at that individual’s house and ask them why they purchased so many guns and demand to come into that person’s house and look at the guns.  They plan on doing the same thing to people buying a certain level of ammunition, whether directly or on-line.  This is all about intimidation tactics. They are trying to make everyone feel like they are being criminalized.  Remember that fascists want everyone unarmed and helpless.
Another topic was regarding the SEC filing suit against the banksters very quickly… yeah, right.  http://www.zerohedge.com/news/massive-wave-lawsuits-be-filed-us-against-americas-biggest-banks-soon-tomorrow  The SEC recently admitted that they had shredded evidence and testimony on thousands of cases to cover up for their masters in the banking establishment.  I agree with their assessment that this is all theatre, and the government is putting on a show in an effort to look somewhat like they give a rat’s patootie.  At most, one or two mid-level minions will be put away for maybe 10 years, and maybe a couple of disproportionately low fines compared to the looting they’ve accomplished. 
Gosh-darn, we live in interesting times!

What This Election Was About…

Silver dipped into $28 territory briefly. Gold is at $1400.

This 2010 mid-term election was more a referendum on the Democrats’ past two years of majority rule and what they’ve managed to accomplish. 

Now… John Boehner, the new Speaker of the House-elect, says that he is in favor of raising the retirement age to 70 just to continue financing the wars.  http://www.infowars.com/john-boehner-says-in-order-to-pay-for-the-wars-we-need-to-raise-the-social-security-retirement-age-to-70/  AHEM!  John!  Go back and listen to the people!  You were put there to close down all of these entangling military adventures, bring the soldiers HOME and put them to work enforcing our border security!  Go talk to Rand Paul!  He’ll tell you what we want!  Pay attention, dammit!

Right now we’re embroiled in two wars of occupation that were unjustified to begin with… the military is sending predator drones well into Pakistan to kill people, and the drumbeats for expanding these war fronts to Yemen and Iran are playing in the mass media. We can’t afford the wars on Iraq and Afghanistan, so we darn-sure can’t afford wars on 5 fronts! This is insanity!

It appears that the Republicans don’t get what this election was about… if they don’t turn it around and start cutting ALL the spending, beginning with all these wars (supporting the military industrial establishment with no-bid contracts… all off the official budget), then the Republicans will find themselves at odds with the Tea Parties and their candidates… and that is something they really are not equipped to handle. If the Republicans don’t drop the business-as-usual loot-and-plunder neocon approach that got them ousted back in 2008, they are going to have real problems. This may very well be where the Tea Party achieves true 3rd party status, as predicted by Gerald Celente.

Boehner… you got 2 years to get it right.  Repeal Obamacare, bring the troops home, secure the borders, get rid of NAFTA and GATT, raise some import tariffs, drop taxes for the companies employing people here in the U.S, at least audit the Federal Reserve, get rid of a bunch of alphabet-soup agencies that can’t pull their own weight, and get the hell out of the way!

Real Patriots Maintain Cash and Silver

I’d like to point out a few little things:

The Eurozone is in deep trouble. Cypress is asking for bailouts now, on top of Spain, Italy, Greece and Portugal.  Mind you, the “bailouts” are all going dicrectly to the banks that have been using depositors’ money to speculate with… so the banker-appointed technocrats who are placed in charge of these governments to administrate their economies are making sure that the governments receive the money from the ECB, IMF and BIS (the Troika) to turn over to the banks… at taxpayer expense. The banks then leverage this money at least 10X to do even more speculating.  Spain’s banks need probably a hundred billion dollars to keep going… at least they were up-front about it this time and the money went directly to their banks instead of getting filtered through their government. People all over the Eurozone are pulling their money out of their bank accounts because they expect banking collapse, and banks are limiting amounts of withdrawals. One big bank in Italy recently closed their doors without bothering to inform depositors… not giving them a chance to redirect their paycheck direct deposits… just keeping their money away from them. Governments all over are seeking to institute capital controls.  If you are looking at what is going on in Europe and not preparing for it to show up here, you are going to lose it all. It is already very apparent that governments, including the U.S. government, does not want people to maintain or use cash.  Highway checkpoints and TSA are actively confiscating cash.
http://www.realecontv.com/videos/government-corruption/the-govt-doesnt-want-you-to-have-cash.html
Common sense dictates that you do the exact opposite of what the government wants you to do.    So, for your own survival, you should own guns and stockpile ammo, you should stockpile food, and you should keep as little money as possible in your bank account and all you can in cash and precious metals.

Europeans have endured so many currency collapses and resets, that they know what is coming. They’ve already seen their manufacturing outsourced, and their banks have imposed “austerity measures” on the people by twisting government bureaucrats’ arms for bailouts.  The fake debt foisted onto countries’ books is some 25 times the world GDP already… it can never be paid back. In Greece, the ecomony has collapsed altogether, forcing people to barter for all goods and services, eschewing the normal retail outlets… they call it “System D”. Breadlines are all over.  People all over Europe are hiding income in order to not pay taxes… I don’t blame them.

Please bear in mind that the last time Europe’s stock markets collapsed, the American stock market followed suit a couple of weeks thereafter. Given how everything is digital these days, it may be a lot shorter time before the collapse in Europe is echoed over here.

Cash.   http://www.theundergroundinvestor.com/2012/06/the-criminal-banking-cartels-end-game-a-100-digital-monetary-system/  If you really want to give the banksters hell, by all means keep as little money in your bank account as is practiceable… just enough to cover monthly bills… and the rest in cash. Stop allowing the banksters to track your purchasing via credit/debit cards… use cash instead.  They don’t like it.  This is a great way to train yourself  in estimating your true needs. Get used to it, because we’re going back to it. Forget plastic.

Please bear in mind that the bankster cartel plans for us a one-world digital currency and no way to use cash.  When they decide to close our financial system for devaluation, you will need your cash to pay basic bills until the banks open once again. A month or two’s worth should suffice to cover you.  When they finally roll out their digital currency (at a huge loss in value to us), you should have already long since gotten the majority of your wealth into precious metals and other tangibles… like farm land, food storage, tools and what-not.

Silver is the really big thing to consider.  Great educational resources include:  http://sgtreport.com/   and http://www.zerohedge.com/
You see… silver is an easily manipulated commodity. The top big banks are stepping on the SPOT PRICE every time it goes up, because it sustains the belief that silver and gold are too volatile to invest in.  The problem for the banks is that we know how they’ve been manipulating the spot price by printing and selling paper silver on the commodities exchanges.  
http://www.nypost.com/p/news/business/jpmorgan_trading_loss_could_hit_ifUcDYuDG2sJVXGIJCBkDM JPMorgan’s Achilles’ heel is silver because of their naked paper shorts, which they will never be able to cover… and it is already blowing up in their face because they currently report some $6 billion in bad debts on their books, and their total derivatives/shorts exposure is already well past the world’s combined GDP of some $60-$65 trillion… that’s just one bank. Add that up across the system and understand that the exchange traded fund SLV is managed by these same banksters… meaning most of what the fund is comprised of is PAPER SILVER.  Get that?  SLV and GLD are scams.

Why silver?  If you understand the fundamentals, you will see that this is the LAST chance to make your money make money for you before the money ceases to be worth anything at all.  Estimated silver production was about 735.9 million ounces a year… and that number is falling.  Actual production could be in the 250 million ounce range. Some 80% of silver production goes directly for industrial applications. In other words, snap it up while you can. Buy your silver early and often.

Taking physical silver off the market right now does several things:  it is a real store of wealth and the last opportunity for you to make some money in this economy, and it also removes the banksters from determining your fate.  You have to get on it fast, though, because physical inventories are drying up now… I am observing this at my local silver merchants here in Houston and on-line.  The banksters may be able to step on the spot price of silver down to $5 an ounce, but you won’t be able to find it ANYWHERE at that price. That will be the official decoupling of the physical from the paper market.  Buy the dips while you can… silver and gold are dipping like all get-out. 

Bear in mind that when people flocked to physical silver and gold was at the bottom of the Great Depression. What the government did back then was beg people to turn in their physical gold from people in return for a silver certificate valued at $28 (or something like that) and then reintroduced the physical gold at $35… which was a 40% currency devaluation while still being on the gold standard.  They plan on something similar again. It may be in association with a normal holiday weekend, or they may decide to have a prolonged bank holiday.

A little planning will stop you from being caught short and enable you to continue to feed your family during the coming transition phase.

Home Depot Observation

My friend in Santa Fe, New Mexico is dealing with some really strange phenomena. New Mexico is melting down and there isn’t a peep about it in the media. Their governor apparently stole billions of dollars from the state, the attorney general is also a crook, the crimelords are running things, and the police can’t be bothered to deal with any crimes that they can’t take a profit from (traffic enforcement). There is no immigration law enforcement.  The economy there stinks worse than probably anywhere else.  The grocery stores aren’t really stocking much, either, so they line the fronts of the shelves with food and don’t load any stock behind that.   The food banks are tapped out and even Costco isn’t carrying anywhere near the variety that we have here in Houston. 

So my friend is trying to put some resources together so she can handle the upcoming shifts, and the probable crazy stuff that may very well accompany all of that. I’ve walked down the aisles at Costco and my local grocery store with her on the phone… I tell her what I see and the price and she tells me how much of it to buy for her. I’ve shipped several heavy boxes to her this past month.

The latest thing was that she needed to find a way to store her food stash so the bugs wouldn’t get into it. It needed to be light and air tight. I suggested she go down to Home Depot, which has the 5 gallon paint buckets with the good lids that have rubber o-rings in them. They’re tough to get open once you have filled them and clamped the lid down.  Turns out, the Home Depot in Santa Fe is out of them… and has been for some time… and they’re not restocking very much, either. She went all over town trying to find something along those lines, but couldn’t. 

This evening after dinner, I went to my local Home Depot, and got my friend the lids, and got myself some buckets and lids as well, among other things. I asked an associate to please check to see if there were any more of the crank-up flashlights… he came back to report there were none. The fellow then asked about why he was seeing so many people loading up on things like these buckets, and emergency type supplies like the batteries and crank radios and the like. I simply explained things as best I could in a nutshell:  we’re about to experience hyper-inflation, and people are preparing by pulling their investments out of the banks and stock market and buying food, ammo and metals.  I explained that we could see the real poo hit the fan as early as first quarter of next year, but we will likely see obvious price inflation hitting as early as this fall.  The man looked at me with glazed, uncomprehending eyes and said that he was glad I was keeping up on these things, as he didn’t have time to.  The poor schmuck… he seemed too old to be that stupid.

The experience tells me that a lot of my neighbors here in Houston are paying attention and trying to stock their pantries, if nothing else.  I’m glad about that.  I’m concerned about the other folks that can’t wrap their heads around what’s going on, hoping that everything will continue bumping along. I try to educate people, but I can’t do their thinking for them. I’m genuinely worried about family members of mine that opt to complain about where the country is heading, and how their 401-Ks are tanking, but aren’t doing anything to be able to handle what looks to be coming up pretty soon. I plan on taking a load of food over to my mom and ask her to “store it for me for a little while”  just to get her marginally equipped.

Pulling Out of the Banks

Well, I have this to show you… a short documentary video about the use of actual gold and silver in place of inflating currency. I find it most enlightening and heartening that these people in Indonesia are sophisticated enough to frank their own currency instead of losing their wealth to the inflation of fiat currency.  It also makes me feel a tad depressed that the majority of Americans, and most of Europe, aren’t getting this concept down pat. In fact, I think the majority of America and Europe are in for a very rude awakening. http://www.davidicke.com/articles/the-money-scam/37146-gold-dinar-silver-dirham

Up until fairly recently, both the U.S. and Great Britain made it against the law to own gold bullion. Both thankfully rescinded those insane laws.  The U.S. made it unlawful to own gold bullion back during the Great Depression… they made anyone stupid enough to do so, cash in their gold at $20 an ounce, and once that was done, the gold was revalued  at $30 an ounce. That was a huge difference back then, and a travesty as well.  In fact, I distinctly remember an old Disney movie starring Dean Jones in which the main character discovered that he had a duck that laid solid gold eggs, and the character fretted about being caught with this “bullion” by the authorities. 

I expect some similar attempt to rescind any of our attempts to maintain control over our personal wealth by the NWO types. Obama is already considering imposing a transaction fee on all bank transactions… like if you go on-line and move $100 from checking to savings, you’ll pay a 2% tax on that simple movement. Or when your paycheck hits the bank, they would collect a percentage of that (on top of what they’ve already withheld)… then there’s that “carbon tax” thing they’re trying to soak us for. It also looks like they’re going to try to get people off of cash so they can be assured of collecting these taxes.  The minute you hear that crud, you definitely keep your paychecks away from the bank. I fully expect to see alternative check cashing services cropping up at that point. I expect to see a lot of alternative commerce in general.

These central bankers are doing to the U.S. exactly what they’ve done to the countries in the European Union, as well as so many other countries around the world. In each and every case, they sink their hooks into a country’s economy, rack up the debt service, then impose “austerity measures”… they hike taxes and take away pensions. Yes, they’re doing that here. It is total economic enslavement. We have to stop it. Iceland did… their populace elected some normal non-politician citizens to clean up the mess, then arrested the officials that had created the mess, then decided NOT to pay the IMF for the debt that the country did nothing to rack up. Iceland is showing the way.

I agree that people are waking up to the fact that we are being plundered by a cabal of private bankers. I also understand that most of the money is being held and used by less than 10 big banks, who have managed to bribe congressmen to relax the regulations they had to follow, and then privatize all profits while pushing all losses to the public sector.  We need to quit subsidizing these people. When you add together what we pay in property taxes, sales taxes, income taxes and now the taxes that are going to be charged on employer-provided health insurance, it  is only a short matter of time before we see a full-on taxpayer revolt.

I’ve been pestering people, especially my family, to hurry up and at least buy some friggin’ silver. It is now up to $19.84 spot, meaning that you’ll pay over $22 for a 1 oz. silver eagle. I’ve been buying silver off and on since it hit $9 an ounce, so granted, I’m feeling pretty good about this. It won’t be long before the tipping point on silver at around $22-$24 spot per ounce will spur the market. You might as well buy silver now before the price catches up with its availability. I fully expect silver to re-index back to the old 16 to 1 ratio with gold, fairly soon.

I’m slowly pulling away from the banks, myself.   I  recommend not keeping any more in the bank than is absolutely necessary to write checks against to pay bills. I also recommend keeping cash in the house to cover bills in the event of a “bank holiday”, which looks inevitable. You know the utility companies, mortgage companies and grocery stores will continue doing business in regular money long after it loses its value. The mortgage company is under contract to accept the “currency of the realm”, so that’s a no-brainer.

One other thing… don’t put anything in a bank’s “safe deposit box”.  These things are neither regulated nor insured, and bank employees have all the keys and can plunder them at will. Get yourself a fireproof box for your important papers.

Eerily Quiet 4th of July…

The date is 7/7/2011. The price of silver is back to $36.28… it was in the $33 range before the holiday weekend. Gold is at $1533.67. 

Here in Houston, and indeed most of the Southwestern United States, we are experiencing a severe drought.  There is a fireworks ban for the next 3 months.  This is the first 4th of July in my memory when I didn’t have to deal with the idiots living in my subdivision keeping me up all hours and scaring my cats with their fireworks, and then leaving trash all over the streets and lawns.  We are very far behind in rain fall… to the point where people may be praying for a hurricane. When you step out onto the grass it crackles, no matter how often you water it.  Local wildlife is under such stress that I keep several bowls of water filled in the back yard out of compassion… never mind the fact that my yard is on the raccoon and ‘possum superhighway.

Now… if for your own sake you would please go to Pastor Lindsey Williams’ blog and listen to some of the interviews, you will know what to expect.  http://lindseywilliams101.blogspot.com/   
Pastor Williams made friends of several of the elites back when he served as chaplain for the Alaska Pipeline project back in the 1970s.  He’s been updated from time to time and goes on various radio talk shows to tell people about the developments. You really want to listen to what he is relating. Other knowledgeable people such as Bob Chapman, Gerald Celente and Webster Tarpley have all been stating their own viewpoints on things that happen to dovetail with Pastor Williams’ information perfectly. 

In short, what we can expect is what I tune in and dowsed out over a year back (posted somewhere on this blog)… in short, that the effects of inflation will become patently obvious here in the U.S. this fall, so you’ve got this summer to divest yourself of all paper assets, and buy precious metals, storable food and water, and guns and ammo.  If you can afford it, by all means install some solar power as it will come in very handy indeed.  Burglar bars will also likely come in handy.

Pastor Williams says that the elites have planned and are actively creating the various color revolutions and regime changes throughout the Middle East… it is mostly theater (no real change in government) and their main purpose is to shut down the supply of the oil coming from that region.  Any one blockage will raise the price of a barrel of oil $50… shut down the Suez Canal or the Straits of Hormuz and you’re at $200 a barrel. The Egyptian putsch was first, then Libya, now Yemen, and they’re going after Syria (which will probably put us at war with both Hammas and Iran)… the very last one to fall will be Saudi Arabia. That is their plan.  Such expensive oil will be the last straw for the American economy.  Only at that point will they produce in ANWR, the Bakken, Central Texas, and Gull Island. They’re already moving the pieces into place. The elites want oil at $150-$200 a barrel before they produce those fields.

Remember that when the government has tried all their accounting sleight of hand, ceiling limits and “stimulus” and have run out of tricks, they WILL take us to war. We’ve already got troops on the ground in Libya. We have predator drones attacking Pakistan and Yemen. Iran, Pakistan and the Saudis are begging China and Russia for protection. There is one rumor that the elites are already headed to their underground bunkers as of the 7th:  http://truthfrequencynews.com/?p=5498  If so, we need to arrange for arcwelders to show up to make sure the bastards can’t get out.

According to Pastor Williams, in the short term, gasoline will stay below $5 a gallon, and silver and gold will stay in the neighborhood they are in  throughout this summer, then the prices will skyrocket in the fall.  The elites pulled back on the gasoline prices because they didn’t want people waking up too fast.  Gold is expected to hit $3,000 and silver will go to at least $75 by the end of this year, give or take.    The dollar WILL BE DEAD by this time in 2012.  Anything that is written on paper is worth the paper it is written on.

The overall feeling, as noticed by a number of journalists, is a very still, hazy, sleepy dreamlike feeling like just before the outbreak of World War II. Everyone seems to be concentrating on their own private bliss while trying to ignore the coming storm. This is probably your last chance to get your house in order.

The ONE thing the elites are afraid of is the awakening of humanity. Please, take time out and talk to all of your friends and family. Do your best to get them preparing for the worst. Help them snatch themselves away from the jaws of death.  Help them to save their dinner table and preserve their hard-earned assets. Make use of this engineered “dip” in precious metals prices to load up on silver and gold.
