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.

Handkerchiefs and Bandannas

Being a native Houstonian, I am well familiar with “Houston sinus”. We have a selection of the world’s nastiest and cheapest, most pollen producing landscaping plants around… and they all have their season. You name it: wax leaf ligustrum, crepe myrtle, red leaf photinia, ragweed, goldenrod, etc.  You will know when the oak or pine trees are blooming because you will see yellow dust all over everything. People will be sneezing. Add to that the typical seasonal colds and flu and you’ve really got something.

The thing I noticed and questioned was the use of Kleenex.  The reason people use these paper tissues is presumably to be more hygienic. They can’t be all that effective if they aren’t big or thick enough to contain a sneeze, and what if people don’t throw them out with each sneeze? How many trees are they destroying because of that?  Toilet paper is a good stop-gap for a dribbly nose, but hardly effective. 

How did people handle this in the past?  Handkerchiefs and bandannas.  Those innocuous squares of fabric you see gentlemen using in the old movies, or you see cowboys using in a bazillion ways in any western film. My grandmother had smaller, more decorative ones. My dad the chiropractor ALWAYS carried a handkerchief, and he would toss it into the laundry and pulled a fresh one out of the drawer to start the day with.  They are the very epitome of sustainable “green” technology. 

So I started carrying them in place of Kleenex. I have one of each in my bug-out-bag. I keep a spare handkerchief in my purse in case I happen to saturate the one in my pocket.  This past Christmas when I saw my younger sister using a printed paper napkin (ouch) to honk into, I gave her my spare hankie.  After my Doctor of Oriental Medicine saw me produce one from my pocket, she told me that it was the very best because they use all sorts of really nasty chemicals to bleach and sanitize the paper they recycle to make paper tissues, adding another layer of irritants. 

A standard fully washed and broken-in bandanna is about 21″ square, while a handkerchief is about 17″ square.  There’s your difference. Either should be 100% cotton.  Linen is more expensive, but tends to be rougher on the nose.

Uses for the handkerchief or Bandanna.  Blowing one’s nose.  Cough into to avoid spraying germs on others.  Coming to the aid of a weeping lady.   Wipe lipstick (or anything else) off your face.  Clean your glasses.  Surrendering.  Wave to get someone’s attention.  Making a (small) tourniquet.  Cleaning up a spill.  Reducing one’s carbon nose-print.  Disposing of semi-masticated  food morsels discreetly.   Robbing banks.   Being a dandy.  Fainting.  Covering sneezes and coughs.   Wiping one’s brow.   Signaling erotic preference.   Using as a napkin while traveling.   Use as a hand towel, or in lieu of toilet paper, in an understocked public bathroom.   Making a Molotov cocktail.   Blindfolding a man condemned to die by firing squad.  Tying one’s belongings to a stick before running away from home as a child.  Opening a door while working as a private detective.  Use to avoid leaving fingerprints.  Rendering someone unconscious with ether.  Waterboarding.  Performing magic tricks.  Signifying gang membership.  Killing insects.  Tie corners together to make a small bag. Cleaning shoes before a business meeting.  Opening jars and bottles.  Using as a rag.  Cover your mouth/nose against dust. Use as a water filter to remove sediment or bugs from stream water.  Use as a bracelet, a necklace, a headband, a hat or any other imaginable accessory.  Creating plot devices.  Wipe sweat from your hard-working brow. It can even be weaponized.

This is by no means a complete list. the more one searches the web, the more ideas one may come up with many, many more applications.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Republican Swing?

Every time I hear from my mom, she’s talking about getting  the democrats out of office. True, we need to do that. Problem is, the republicans have gone “neocon”, meaning they are no longer in favor of reduced government, reduced taxes and reduced infringement of government into our lives.  Consequently, both parties are effectively the SAME. Both are fascist and both are obviously going to continue taking us to war over the thinnest of non-excuses. Both are printing money willy-nilly and both are giving that money, and the debt it represents, to the banking cabal that is intent on owning the entire world. Both are fully intent on destroying America, both through the unprecedented growth of a police/surveillance state, removal of the borders, shipping all the jobs off-shore, and unfettered currency printing, thereby destroying the entire economy.

We are replaying several world epochs right now. America has long since entered the age of empire, and we’re now fighting two-going-on-three wars in a pointless attempt to own the entire Eurasian corridor from the Mediteranean to the Pacific… if you don’t believe me just take out a map.  If you’ve listened to Faux News lately, you know they’re planning on taking us to war on Iran, and Iran has been fully armed by Russia.  We can’t afford these wars, to say the least, and the loss of dollar hegemony assures we won’t have the ability to bully other countries for very long.

Bush got that ball rolling with the 9-11 reichstag fire and subsequent introduction of the whole surveillance state to place Americans on lock-down even as illegal immigrants run roughshod over all of us, unabated.

Obama is intent on doing exactly what the Nazis did: regulate all small business out of business. There is a provision in the ObamaCare law that says that any business spending $600 or more in a calendar year with any contractor or other business, the business owner has to issue a 1099 statement to that contractor or business. That means that people like me, with a small home-based business, will have to issue a 1099 to Office Depot, Sams Club, and anyone else.  Any long-distance trucker has to issue a 1099 to every gas station he visits in the course of a year, and each refuel is something like $2000 – $3000.  Never mind the fact that we’re already reporting those expenses as deductions and the other parties are reporting those transactions as income.  It is insanity.  Requiring everyone to purchase insurance is patently unconstitutional, and Obama recently admitted that his scheme actually added expense, increased premiums and still didn’t cover pre-existing conditions, still leaving people without care.

The neocons got their real start under good old President Reagan. Back then, the neocons were the crazies that were kept locked in the back rooms. He let them out just often enough to give Rumsfield a free ride by forcing the FDA to approve aspertame (Nutrasweet) for use in foods, in spite of spotty or nonexistent research to prove its safety… and we now know that it is a powerful neurotoxin.

The other world epoch we’re replaying right now is economic collapse.  They’ve been printing trillions of dollars, and the only thing keeping the big inflation from hitting full-force has been the fact that the 6 big banks that own 80% of our economy have been playing with it for a while, keeping the momentum slow by not lending money. The Federal Reserve loans the U.S. every dollar it prints at interest, and is about to start buying the U.S. Treasury Bills that other foreign countries are refusing to buy at this point, meaning they’re collecting from us coming and going. Right now, the U.S. total debt is so high that the government can’t even pay the interest on it, and the total is running over $150 trillion, probably closer to $200 trillion.  The U.S. debt is actually more than the combined gross national product for the entire planet, several times over.  They will likely continue to print more money.

 So what happens if we sweep republicans into office every chance we get? The ones they replace will still have until January 20th, roughly 3 months or so to do whatever they want with impunity.  Secondly, if the new representatives and senators are not constitutionalists, we will still have all of the same problems because they will all still be owned by the banking cartel.  We can expect things to continue going downhill.

Let me make a prediction:   The Tea Parties have essentially already been coopted from the inside by the republicans.  The republicans will NOT repeal ObamaCare, at least not in entirety. They will continue to raise taxes, and print more money, and give everything away to their big-business cronies.  The only hope we have is to do everything we can to elect constitutionalists instead of republican lawyers who have already sold us out. 

When they’ve managed to tank our currency, they WILL take us to war, and it will likely be a world war.   I also predict massive tax protests, civil unrest and further expanded police state.  They’re already planning on a replacement currency called the Bancor, which would also be a fiat currency, still issued by the central banks at interest.  What we really have to do is stop playing by the banking cabal’s rules.  The smart people are already planning ahead and getting themselves out of their system.

Ruminations on Japan’s Earthquake…

I’m sure most of the world has learned about Japan’s 9.1 magnitude earthquake and subsequent tsunami and nuclear reactor meltdowns.  It ain’t pretty.  Last I heard, over 88,000 people were reported missing, and over 300,000 people are crowding into shelters. Most of the coastal villages along the northern half of Japan facing the Pacific Ocean were wiped off the map, and shifted the Earth’s axis by 10 cm, and Japan itself was shifted about 8 feet to the west.  They’re still shaking and baking with level 6 aftershocks.  http://edition.cnn.com/2011/WORLD/asiapcf/03/12/japan.earthquake.tsunami.earth/index.html?hpt=T1

Given the population density, it isn’t a stretch that the death toll will go into the hundreds of thousands as is, without a nuclear meltdown. They’re already saying that the cost of the destruction will go into hundreds of billions.  With a nuclear meltdown? Gosh… that will be really horrible, particularly since the jet stream will carry any radioactive fallout across the Pacific and across the United States and beyond.  http://www.infowars.com/media-coverup-of-massive-chernobyl-event-underway-in-japan/  An explosion happened and the reactor cracked open releasing a bunch of white smoke and they are already measuring radiation levels 1,000 times higher than normal.  It already looks like the Japanese government is trying to do a media coverup on this event in an effort to prevent massive hysteria in an area where nobody can travel if they survived the earthquakes and tsunamis; the roads are all ripped up and the trains aren’t running. 

http://www.zerohedge.com/article/boj-raises-liquidity-injection-jpy12-trillion-146-billion  The Nikkei stock exchange is going to be up and running this Monday, and Japan’s central bank is probably going to inject hundreds of billions of dollars into their economy… that’s debt, folks, on top of the tremendous soverign debt they already have.  What’s kept Japan’s economy going for the past decade or so has been the “carry trade” in which brokers have been making money by exchanging one currency for another to buy things. Their sovereign debt was actually financed by the citizenry, who are known “savers”, instead of the central bank simply debasing the currency by printing more and more money.  Japan has forced retirement at age 60 and as a direct result, a large indigent population.

Even before their economic “lost decade”, it has always been said that when the “big one” hit Japan, that the Japanese people would be cashing out all their holdings in other countries to return to rebuild Japan. I would imagine that would be really bad for the U.S. right now. As big a player in the world economy as Japan is, it just might be the one event that sends the whole global economic ponzi scheme over the precipice. 

Now… several people have already asked me about the origin of this earthquake. Well, we do know that these large events are cosmic in origin. We know that this quake comes on the tail of a “super moon” in which the moon is actually the closest it has been to the earth in close to a hundred years. The moon not only effects tides, but it also pulls at the magma tides inside the earth’s crust. Add to that a lot of sunspot activity, which will certainly aggravate any weather activity (note the flooding in New Jersey).   Mt. Kilaueah in Hawaii and Sakurajima Volcano on the southern tip of Japan each erupted in new and unusual activity. http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/tsunami-nowhere-to-run-videos-waves-hit-japan-hawaii-west-coast-on-alert_03122011  
The point I’ll make is just because the probability for this quake activity was forseeable, that doesn’t make it 100% organic.   We know that HAARP has been used to create quake activity and floods in various areas of the world, including China. It isn’t a long stretch to imagine that someone could take advantage of the cosmic cycle to make their HAARP program work that much better. http://www.infowars.com/piers-corbyn-massive-japan-earthquake-tsunami-were-triggered-by-solar-action/    If so, it amounts to a terrorist attack on Japan.  Piers Corbyn, an astro-meteorologist predicts a lot more like this over the next two years.

Gang… I can recommend some action right now.  First, pray for the people of Japan. Secondly, stock up on food and load up on POTASSIUM IODIDE to protect yourself from the effects of radioactive fallout.  A lot of on-line sources are already selling out. I have a couple of bottles of the 2% atomic nascent iodine coming  http://purebulk.com/atomic-iodine-2-nascent , as well as several vials of  the concentrated Potassium Iodide http://www.ki4u.com/products1.php   that you make up in a liter of water and then dose out.  You need to make sure you are NOT in the least bit deficient in iodine because if your body is missing any of it, it will soak up the radioactive stuff from the atmosphere.

Since it looks like this might be an important event in the world’s economy, if you haven’t already done so, you might want to get out of paper and into metals.

Silver, Web Bots and Other Stuff…

Okay… a couple of weeks back I saw that the European banks have ceased to sell gold and silver bullion. Now China has made it official… they are no longer selling any of their precious metals… gold, silver or anything else of a rarified nature that is used in an industrial context… they are hanging onto it all. In fact, China rolled out a program to encourage their citizens to buy gold and silver bullion several months ago.  Hint, hint.  It doesn’t take a genius to figure that something is up.

According to my silver dealers, it’s already tough to find the 90% silver U.S. coins right now, and the normal silver round is generally tough to stock even from U.S. sources.  If your local dealer has some, this would be the ideal time to get into it while silver is dipping down to $23.30.  I strongly suggest reconfiguring your assets right now… as in yanking your money out of your 401K or IRAs and buying things that are going to actually be useful to you.  You might as well do it now and only pay 10% tax on it, instead of waiting until next year and pay 15% instead… and that’s assuming there will be anything left of your nestegg.  We know that Obummer is eyeing up the idea of nationalizing 401Ks.  

Most of you are probably aware that the European Union is experiencing a lot of problems… the derivatives debt hit them hard, too, cratering pension funds and forcing governments all over to do their own bailouts of their big banksters, and the governments are forcing the populace to pay for it all with “austerity measures”.  People all over Europe are rioting, with Greece and Ireland leading the charge. In France, they are rioting and creating disruptions of shipping and commerce over changes in their retirement age.  The French know how to throw a good revolution… their government is justifiably afraid of the populace because they know the people can and will drag out the guillotine. We need to take a few pages from their playbook.

So… I’m recommending gold as a means of preserving long-term assets (there’s your retirement fund), silver for medium term once some type of bartering system becomes established, and CASH on hand for short term during a bank holiday, and it looks like that holiday is coming a lot quicker than we might have otherwise thought… mid November of this year… that’s just a couple of weeks away. 

On top of that, I will recommend storing water and food… enough for several months for the entire family for several months.  You’ve got a couple of weeks to move on this. Shop the sales and load up on everything you could possibly need to be able to feed your family.  Canned and dry foods, dehydrated and freeze-dried. I’m not kidding.  Believe me, I don’t do panic… there is nothing I’d like better than to have to donate my stored foods to the local Food Bank… I just don’t think it’s gonna happen like that.  I really feel like this is necessary. Food, ammo and what-not all have the potential to be bartering assets, too.

I am on the Michael Mandeville Earth Change Bulletins e-mail list; he recently featured this quote among his latest news and interpretations of data. It is a quote from Clif High and George Ure’s  “Half Past Human” web bot project newsletter: 

“In July of 2001, Clif found a large “emotional tipping point” coming in a matter of months. It had keyword associations of “military” and “accident”, among others. It had an intense emotional impact lasting about four hours, and lingering emotional release lasting several days. He wasn’t sure what it was, until Sept. 11, 2001. The event lasted several hours, and the lingering effect of grounded airlines lasted for several days. It changed life as we know it.
“In trying to financially support the bandwidth for the web bots, Clif offered the technology to the government. They were not interested then. He found a foreign investor who paid him to keep it running, and this foreign investor made large sums of money by using the information the project supplied. That has since ended.
“In one scan of the net, the web bots made it into a Chinese server that was doing the same kind of work, so Clif knows that the Chinese are actively doing this kind of project also. There are also indications that the US government has taken the idea and quietly started using it, also.
“In predictive linguistics, it seems that the further in advance they sense something coming, the bigger the event, or emotional impact is. For a year or two now, Clif has been looking at the largest “emotional tipping point” he has ever analyzed. This one is predicted for Nov. 8-12 approximately. It has an intense emotional impact over four full days, and a cascading emotional release period well into March 2011. This event is predicted to have 10 to 100 times the impact of 9/11 in changing our lives forever after. Clif says it will start in the US and spread globally.
“What could it be? Much speculation and an array of various clues and aspects from the “time monks”, but there is much, much happening in the world tensions, as you may have noticed in recent months. Nuclear war? Global financial collapse? False flag attack on the US? All the above?”
 
Sounds like a booger-bear, doesn’t it?   Add to that the war drums beating… the U.S. has been sending drones to attach Pakistan on a regular basis and the Israeli Zionists are itching to start WWIII by bombing Iran. Iran just wants to be left alone, and Russia has armed Iran. You tell me how that will play out.
On top of that, a psychic sensitive and channeler I know who lives in Santa Fe, NM suddenly got the intuitive flash to get the heck out of there. New Mexico has been in melt-down for a while now, and the cartels run the state. My friend is selling everything in an effort to get herself moved. She may not be able to get moved before the “event” happens, but she’s working on it.  I told her to tune in on her “sources” and she called back the next day saying that this winter was going to be really, really, really tough.
