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.

ObamaCare and Other Fascist Grabs

If you get the chance, give a listen to the Alex Jones Infowars interview with Judge Napolitano.  I have to tell you, it is quite empowering! We do have a lot more options than you might ordinarily think.
http://www.infowars.com/judge-napolitano-on-alex-jones-tv-obamacare-is-unconstitutional/
Gang… we are staring down the abyss.  Obama — or rather Soetoro — and his cabal are rushing to lock onto every manner of controlling us they can possibly invent before the November mid-term elections.  Right now, there are 14, going on 16 states filing suits stating that ObamaCare is unconstitutional, and mostly citing the 9th and 10th amendments of the Constitution. Truth is, ObamaCare violates MOST of the constitution… period.  Reading down the list: it also violates the 4th, 8th and the 14th amendments, and also violates a number of articles.  
Am I kidding? No!
*    According to the rules of how legislation is supposed to be done, this bill was written by the insurance industry’s lobby, and rammed through congress without anyone reading or understanding it. Legislation is supposed to originate in the House, then go to the Senate, then back to the House if a lot of changes where made, and if not, it goes to the president. It is a violation of article 1, sections 7 and 9.  This is an example of midnight legislation, similar to the 16th amendment that gave us the income tax.
*     It gives illegal aliens open access to health care here, with no I.D., even while they don’t pay income taxes here, while it requires tax-paying citizens to have that accursed “national I.D.” card we spent the last 8 years fighting off.
*    It takes away our freedom of privacy.
*    It forces us to buy insurance we don’t want and can’t afford.
*    It legally forces us to purchase a PRIVATE PRODUCT by a company… a violation of all the anti-trust laws.
*    It tells us what to do and limits our choices, threatening excessive fines and imprisonment.
*    If gives an unseen non-elected official total control over our health care. It allows that official to disallow health care coverage to anyone with a pre-existing condition, including children.
*    It contains numerous industrial pork-barrel giveaways… including the vaccine and drug manufacturers.
*    It does NOT contain any attempt at tort reform. 
*    It is an unfunded mandate.
*    It is a massive redistribution of wealth… period.
Obama and his cabal have lied time and again, not just about this legislation, but all of their campaign promises.  Obama is not a socialist… he is a totalitarian and a fascist. He wants absolute control over every aspect of your life. 
Obama himself has already perjured himself in all 50 states…  “Barack Hussein Obama” is not his legal name… it is Barry Soetoro on his certificate of adoption by his Indonesian stepfather, which, if he wasn’t already born abroad, certifies that he doesn’t qualify to be president under the constitution.  
You can bet that his bunch will be doing their best to ram through “cap and trade” as quick as they can, before the mid-term elections tosses most of the democrats (and hopefully all incumbents) out on their ears. They are rushing even as we speak. Pelosi openly made threats to the democrats in the House to get them to vote for the ObamaCare bill, telling them that they had to do this and “take the hit” for the party. Voting the “party line” instead of their conscience or the will of the constituents is more than grounds for not only voting them out at the next election, but calling them back to their districts and pressing charges against them.
You can also bet your bottom dollar that they will most likely stage a terror event just to grab even more control. I would guess that a lot of the vandalism on campaign offices was probably staged, too.  Just watch. Things are getting interesting.

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.

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.

The Practical Side of Preparing for the Apocalypse

http://www.naturalnews.com/028712_preparedness_survival.html  Just got a link to an article about this!   And:  http://www.infowars.com/u-s-food-prices-spiraling-out-of-control/

I’ve had the guidance to store food for the long haul, Mormon style, for the last year or so. I also got the guidance to get into gardening, which is now slowly paying off. I purchased a FoodSaver System and began buying dry foods in large amounts, say, 25 pounds or more, and then breaking it down into more manageable amounts using the FoodSaver System. I’ve been buying bulk beans of all sorts, rice, quinoa, amaranth, millet, oats, nonfat dry milk, and a whole range of other staples and putting them in suck-wrapped bags of 4 to 7 cups each. In addition to this, every time I hit Sam’s Club, I pick up some extra staples… Spam, canned chicken or turkey, Ro-Tel Tomatoes with Green Chiles, tomato paste and sauce, dried onions, spices… just about anything I can imagine I might need to prepare simple and nutritious meals.

In America, we are at a crossroads. We know the government is rogue, with unabated and up-front corruption, and is going the way of Nazi Germany… massive expansion of power accompanied by runaway inflation and unprecedented taxation.  People are already showing their displeasure with both political parties, and are getting more vocal about it. The government is pushing through its corporatist/new world order agenda as fast as it can before the mid-term elections.  In short, we can expect things to really get strange.

Living on the Texas gulf coast, I can tell you what cattle people can be based on what has happened during the past few hurricanes. People are short-sighted and stupid… which is to say they are prone to not planning ahead. People are not necessarily good at feeling the situation. I didn’t evacuate during either Hurricane Rita or Ike because I listened to my inner guidance. I even tried to convince my neighbors that they didn’t need to leave, and yet they spent the entire 3 days sitting on a highway in the heat, while I stayed home and relaxed in relative comfort and cooked one nice meal after another. The grocery store shelves were empty 3 days ahead of hurricane landfall. After the hurricane had come and gone, people stood in line for hours outside of local grocery stores, which had very little to sell, but were only letting 5 people at a time inside anyway. The traffic stayed crazy the entire time. It took two months for the grocery store shelves in my area to get back to normal stock levels.

The thing is, the big forecast economists like Gerald Celente and Peter Schiff predict hyper-inflation possibly hitting by the end of this year, and by 2012 at the very latest, causing prices to go up to where most people’s paychecks can’t keep up enough just to put food on the table. That sets the stage for civil unrest, there is the possibility of having to shelter in place… perhaps for weeks. http://www.prisonplanet.com/%e2%80%9cthings-are-never-going-to-get-that-bad%e2%80%9d.html

I can tell you that inflation is already hitting at the grocery stores, and they aren’t carrying the variety they used to.

If the crazies running that whole “new world order” thing manage to pick a war between Iran and Israel, it would probably involve a nuclear exchange and the price of oil would go up. Gas prices could go over $10 a gallon, which would bring most food transport to a screeching halt, and would certainly shove all prices skyward. You’re looking at supply versus demand, and a lot of people caught with their pants down. Depending on the season, we could see riots, or segments of the population starving to death… or dying in FEMA camps. Martial law could become a possibility, with entire neighborhoods closed off by military cordons. It might take a while before things settle down again.

The Mormons have it right… they encourage their families to save as much money as they can and store large amounts of food at home – a three-month supply of what they normally eat and a year’s worth of long-term stocks such as wheat, rice and nuts. Many Mormons also can their own food, and their 140 Mormon storehouses include canneries that stay busy… even more now because of the economy and the number of natural disasters. www.providentliving.org

I’m not a Mormon, but I was reared on the Texas gulf coast. We understood the need for stored water and “hurricane food” that we maintained and cycled through the pantry, and of course, the means to cook a meal, whether charcoal or propane.  http://rocketstoves.org/ has how-to material on making a stove that will heat a whole gallon of water with a few twigs as fuel. Or buy one already made from http://www.stovetec.net  I’ve certainly got twigs in my yard.

Now, when you buy and repackage bulk foods, you have to get into the concept of cycling this stuff. You have to eat it and replace it. I discovered that this cuts down on food expenses quite nicely, while cleaning up your diet.  Believe me, your gut will thank you. If you can only find quinoa at the local health food store for around $5 a pound, and you can buy 25 pounds of it in bulk for $2 a pound, then that is a substantial savings, even with shipping costs. Every dollar you save is worthwhile.

A 12-ounce can of turkey meat, half a cup of brown rice, some non-MSG bullion, a fresh onion, some tarragon, and either a can or packet of frozen mixed veggies makes a really good chicken dish in the rice cooker.  For added pop, I make up a packet of biscuit mix and add that in little globs on top to cook… instant dumplings. 

I purchased some whole grain brown rice elbow pasta from http://www.sunorganic.com and decided to make macaroni and cheese with it… a little butter, milk, Velveeta, and a pinch each of paprika and turmeric. It is far, far better than any other you’ve ever had.

Please talk to your friends and relatives about this topic. Ask them to at least start buying a few extra pantry staples every time they go to the grocery store. When I mention this among people I work around, it is often the case that someone says that their pastor has been encouraging them to stock up… that’s a good thing. Listen… I’d rather have to give food to the food banks than not have it when I really need it.

Glad to See Awakenings

I gotta say, every time I get into a conversation about the economy, I look that other person in the eye and say, “Please tell me you’re stocking extra food for long term and buying silver.”  I am increasingly gratified to get comments to the affirmative, and often with a wink.  I tell them they might as well channel any and all of their disposable income in this way to protect their families against the ravages of hig inflation and hyper-inflation, which looks to be looming closer and closer.  I see every person that is making these types of preparations as one less family to wind up dying in a FEMA camp.

After mailing off an order to one lady, I approached her via e-mail, after informing her to look for her shipment, that she might want to look at this list of links and please consider stocking up on at least 3 months’ supply of food for her family and buying silver.  She was a tad slow on the uptake… she asked me which ETF (silver stock) she should  buy, and I told her to go to the local bullion dealer and load up on physical silver!  Truth is, silver stocks are paper silver and most are heavily leveraged.  I told her that this is the case in which you really want to have the commodity in your hand.  I was very gratified when she indicated that she “got it” and will be taking action.  The smaller your household income, the more action you need to take in this regard to protect your family.

I am also glad that the Twitter feeds for my posts are picking up larger and larger numbers of followers. I get new notices just about every day, in spite of not having any kind of advertising or affiliate program.  I hope that means that many more people are pulling their preparations together to safeguard their families.

Silver is still a real deal at under $30 spot. I take advantage of the dips to accumulate more of it, and I recommend you do so as well, while the bullion banks are still suppressing the price for us!  It is like holding a helium balloon under water… at some point, you won’t be able to hold it down any more and the thing will take off.  Silver is actually being consumed by many industrial applications, and the supply is being replaced at a rate below consumption.  The various mints around the world are scrambling to keep up with demand.

While surfing Max Keiser’s site I found this link to the top 25 countries whose countries could easily get crushed by food price inflation. http://www.businessinsider.com/governments-food-price-inflation-2011-1#      The list includes some countries that the U.S. considers unfriendly like Venezuela with a GDP per capita of $11,236 and a food as a percentage of total household consumption of 32.6%.   That’s pretty high, but there are a lot of countries where the percentage is close to or over 50%… Vietnam, Ukraine (at 61%), Bulgaria, Romania, Azerbaijan (at 60.2%), Sudan (52.9%), Egypt (at 48.1% of their per capita GDP of $1,991, and they’re rioting), Nigeria (73.0%), Algeria (53.0%), Morocco (63.0%), and Bangladesh (53.8%).  That’s really marginal living… they still have to put a roof over their heads and clothes on their backs.  In most of these places, a bag of rice or wheat is the majority of the weekly grocery purchase. In most of these places, the government has to subsidize many households. They began rioting in Egypt and other places when the IMF got their governments to quit the subsidies in the name of “austerity”.  Remember that. The IMF wants people rioting and starving… the Rothschields always said to buy real estate when there’s blood in the streets.  The IMF also has absolutely zero capital of its own… it moves in after the bankers tank the local economy with derivatives, then offers some high interest loan for which each country gives up its soverignity and has to take orders from these vampires.

The average in the U.S., for the time being,  is supposed to be somewhere around 12.4%.  I know a lot of people whose food budgets are primarily beans and rice, and it is taking up a much higher percentage of their take home pay. It isn’t funny. 

Shipping prices are going up, which is adding to the weather as reasons for food prices going up, but number one on the hit parade is the Federal Reserve debasing our currency.  Our monetary inflation is causing people in other countries to starve and riot, and it’ll only be a relatively short amount of time before that comes home to roost here in the U.S.  Most agricultural commodities are up 50% in just the past 6 months. 

I just read the latest web bot report from Clif High, and it is frightening. It mentions specifically food and fuel price inflation, and civil unrest. It specifically mentions how TPTW  (the powers that were, meaning the elites) will be pulling out all the stops to squash galloping global rebellions against their so-called authority.   The web-bots point to March being a major tipping point, and the big inflation hitting in the fall.  The Fed would have to jack up interest to over 20% and start drawing a lot of money from the supply in order to prevent hyper-inflation… and we know they either don’t have that kind of will… or they really do want everything to go nuts.  Gang, you might as well hedge your bets and plan for the worst. You’ll likely be eating all of that stored food within 2 years anyway.

You Really Can Buy Anything on E-Bay

I’m not kidding.  I got an e-mail from a young lady named Nadine in New York, who actually bought a ghost on E-Bay.  Nadine sent me money for a spate of different things through PayPal without consulting me, so I figured there had to be something special going on.  When I asked, Nadine told me she found this E-Bay store called “Miss Holly’s Witchcraft Parlor” selling something called a “witch’s spirit familiar” for $59.  This on-line store also offers “fetch spirits” too, in the same packaging.  

Basically “Miss Holly” finds and attaches a ghost to a crystal, and puts the crystal in a house-shaped wooden box and mails that off, with the instruction that you are supposed to place this in a quiet place in your home, make an offering of some sort to the spirit, and then give the spirit a name and tell it what you expect out of it.

Nadine had never taken any courses or done any studies in spiritualism, psychic development or Wicca.  She really had no idea what she was letting herself in for when she bought one of these “spirit familiars”, and brought it into her house and followed the instructions only to wind up with some of the most virulent poltergeist activity that has ever been described to me.  Stuff disappearing and reappearing in odd places, electronics malfunctioning, spirit attacks while she slept… you name it.  The spook made her miserable.  I’d classify it as criminal mischief.

The thing about haunting activity is that most people stay in denial for a while, then by the time they realize that they have a ghost problem, they are in a panic to get the issue resolved by any means possible, so they will either throw lots of money at the problem or they will drag in all sorts of people in an effort to get them to address the problem, and not everyone that shows up is necessarily going to be there to help.

 When Nadine e-mailed to complain to the dealer, she got the following response:

“Dearest Nadine,

I understand that you no longer wish to have your spirit familiar. To release it you should if you still have the dwelling place the crystal vessel inside along with your offering take them all to some area off your property and bury it. The earth has natural healing abilities as well as power to ground power and energy. After it is buried say: spirit familiar I release you of your service to me. Go back to where you came. Cease your activity with me and return in peace to God. Now go back home and spin around three times before you enter your house. Now, take a bit of salt and sprinkle it in every room of the house but especially your bedroom and the cabinet where you kept it. While you are purifying and cleansing your house say these words I cast out any spirits who are in my house in the name of God! Leave this house. Repeat. As a last measure to be sure the house is completely free of spirits make loud noise in every room such as banging on pots which is known to scare and drive out spirits.”

Nadine’s comment to me:  “Suzanne, that sounds like a whole bowl of crap.  I had told my boyfriend about what is going on and he said the same thing you said: what in the world made me purchase such a thing? My boyfriend also said if that woman invoked that evil spirit and sent it to your house, what makes you think she would tell you how to get rid of it, and Suzanne, you know what, my boyfriend is right.”  I guess wisdom comes at a higher price for some.

 In short, this E-Bay seller sets some newbies up for a nice little spiritual trap.  Nadine admitted she was looking for the fast track approach without the requisite self-work or studies, and it bit her on the butt.  Nadine wants to shut that E-Bay store down, though somehow I don’t think E-Bay will listen to her.  The nature of this offense is that anyone listening to the case will automatically think that Nadine is a nut.  I don’t think that ghosts can be proven in a court of law… if they could, there would be a whole lot of spiritualist/channelers taking the witness stand in murder cases.  Universal Law will have to take care of “Miss Holly”. 

 Bless her heart… I e-mailed her the Johrei “White Light” calligraphy and instructed her in its use and placement, and coached her on some other things to do, and all of that seems to have helped.  I whittled down her order to the essentials and gave her a refund back through PayPal.  When I packaged up her order I added an “Absolute Truth” ball for good measure.  She was very anxious to receive her goodies and was very grateful when they got there.  She thanked me and I haven’t heard anything back from her.  I’ll eventually check back with her to see how she’s doing.  

I’ll bet you can buy “butt plugs” on E-Bay, too.

Friend Playing Catch-up

Last year I lost J’ton, my best friend, to cancer. She had a friend, Vickie, that had been besties with her since 4th grade.  I had met both of these women through the local dowsing association. J’ton’s old friend showed me her controlling, egotistical side in short order, so I never bothered to bond with her.  About two months before J’ton died, she lost her husband to cancer as well… devastating events to say the least. A few months after J’ton’s passing into spirit, I got a call from Vickie… it was apparently part of her grieving process to talk to me.  We shared many stories over the ensuing months, and I also began working on her towards “prepping”.  It took a while before she was ready to join the world… some nine months.

This evening I got another call from Vickie… now she’s ready to “prep”.  She still didn’t understand the nature of the whole financial world, with its hypothecation, credit default swaps, leveraging, collateralized debt obligations, naked shorts, manipulation of the commodities markets and quantitative easing.  Her response was, “Oh my gosh! We are so screwed!”

I explained what Pastor Lindsey Williams ( http://lindseywilliams101.blogspot.com )  passed along to his listeners… he had made friends among the world’s elites while serving as chaplain on the Trans Alaska Pipeline project during the 1970s, and maintained those relationships. Williams said that all of this quantitative easing (central banks printing money and then buying sovereign treasuries with that same money they print, getting paid interest coming and going) is leading to the bankers completely owning all of the nations of the Eurozone and Americas. The bankers would sink all of these countries so far in debt and then walk in with all of that paper and claim ownership… and they’ve already done that to Greece, already asset-stripping that country.  They’d done that throughout South America and Africa, and Europe would be the next to fall.  Once the Euro currency crashes, it would be a matter of maybe 3 weeks before the dollar crashes once and for all.  He said that the dollar would be a dead currency by the end of 2012.

We briefly discussed “preps”.  She needs to get a gun and ammo… I recommended a trip to Carter Country and Academy Sports & Outdoors… start by looking at the 9mm handguns and hold each one for comfort.  Perhaps consider something slimline for concealed carry, and something bigger for home defense… perhaps a shotgun as well. I pointed out that ammo could easily become a trade commodity, and some five million guns have been sold per month over the last several months.

We discussed putting her savings into precious metals. What is recommended because it is least likely to get confiscated by the government is U.S. made silver, such as dimes, quarters, half-dollars and silver dollars minted before 1965, and silver eagles from the U.S. Mint.  Other than that, I have silver from just about every mint… APMEX, Sunshine, Silvertown, Englehard, Northwest Territorial, etc. I explained the banksters printing 100+ ounces in paper silver and gold for each ounce of the real thing in their vaults, and how JPMorgan and HSBC have been “naked shorting” (nothing in the vault). As a result, you can still get silver eagles for about $35 each.  Silver is the play of the decade. David Morgan came up with the calculation of silver’s true value, minus the lies of market manipulation and inflation… it should actually be about $1800 an ounce. Classically, for some 6,000 years, a working man’s wages for the day was a silver coin about the size of a dime. We’re about to go back to that.

We also discussed food.  She said that her own elitist friend, who has been spoonfeeding her little tidbits of knowledge, said she’d need about 4 month’s supply. I replied that would be a minimum requirement and that she should consider stocking more while prices were low enough… inflation will likely make food go up so much that she would be pulling from her emergency storage long before SHTF.  She would also likely have relatives needing some handouts as well.  I said I probably have close to a year’s supply if calculated for me and my husband alone.  Having done a lot of shopping, I know where a lot of good deals are… for example, Costco has the best deals on good cooking oil (2 liters of grapeseed oil for about $7), basic dry foods from the Mormons  and certain items from the regular grocery stores (1 quart of LouAna coconut oil for maybe $6).

The whole thing is pretty overwhelming to her.  She’s just going to have to make a list and knock it down one item at a time.  I’ll free up some time to go shopping with her.
