    Gerald Celente: “Economic Martial Law Will Be Declared”

    In his latest quarterly Trends Journal (Summer 2011), Gerald Celente provides us another “history of the future,” in which he discusses global economic, monetary, and political events as they happen and what their consequences will be for months, years and decades to come. As he has said before, it is only a matter of time before a major terror attack is executed in a major Western nation. And once it happens it will send shock waves throughout the world, leading to mass global panic and a further tightening of the noose around the necks of the populace:

    What will another major terror strike mean? Should an attack hit one of the major NATO nations, the effects, this time, will go global. Bank holidays will be called, the US and other fragile economies will crumble, gold and silver will soar, and already-troubled currencies will crash. Economic martial law will be declared. Introduced as a temporary measure, once in place it will remain in place (like the curfews and draconian security precautions installed by despots and dictators everywhere). Civil rights will be suspended and, particularly in America, Homeland Security, already intolerably intrusive, will achieve an Orwellian omnipresence.

    With banks closed and economic martial law inplace, restrictions will be set on the amounts, times and frequency of withdrawals. As we have cautioned before, it will be essential to have a stash of cash on hand. Even though governments will devalue their currencies, it will happen in stages. Speaking only for ourselves, we at The Trends Research Institute will not be storing precious metals in bank safe deposit boxes.

    Since “terrorism” is now a term we can use to describe just about any action deemed a threat to the public and government infrastructure, the possibilities for what the next “terror attack” will look like are endless. It can come in the form of suicide bombers at your local shopping mall, a cyber attack on financial markets launched via the internet, or any number of other potential threats that have been recently highlighted by our Department of Homeland Security.

    There need be only a single event that occurs at an opportune time and is pushed by the mainstream media and all hell will break loose.

    Imagine, for a minute, what America would look like if nationwide curfews were implemented, civil rights were suspended (including confiscation of guns), the US dollar crashed, ATM’s and credit card transactions were restricted, and food and gas purchases were limited.

    The Presidential executive orders are in place, Fusion Centers and FEMA detention camps are operational, and 20,000 US troops have been trained to deal specifically with economic collapse and civil unrest and are ready to be deployed immediately.

            We already HAVE martial law, guys. It’s been in place since 1861, and every US president since then has reaffirmed our state of martial law.

            Of course, martial law in America looks a little different from martial law everywhere else. Here, it just means that the President has the authority to do anything that the federal government has the Constitutional authority to do. So American martial law doesn’t mean gun confiscations, gold/silver confiscations, and a jackboot on every corner.

            Of course, those things might still happen, but it won’t be the government dong those things, especially since we don’t have a President or a sitting Congress to do them. Instead, we have a private corporation owned by the IMF that has trademarked the brand names “United States,” “United States Government,” “US Government,” “US,” “USA,” etc. The people have been confused into thinking that this corporation is actually their government, and as a result, we haven’t even bothered to hold elections for federal offices since 1917.

            But the government still exists, even though nobody is seated in its offices. The Constitution is still the law of the land–and I’m talking about the real Constitution, not the corporation’s fake constitution which has been sliced up by the courts. Our original
            Constitution is still intact as written and enforceable–but only if you reject acting as an agent of the IMF’s corporation. Anyone can do it and get their real American freedom back. Then the corporation can’t harass you, their controls don’t affect you, and anything they might do in the name of “martial law” doesn’t apply to you. To find out more, visit http://teamlaw.org.

As the economy gets worse there will be an even longer line of young healthy Americans who can’t find work who will have no qualms of “following orders” and blowing away you and any other “subversive” their superiors tell them are enemy’s of the State.

      I realize that Mr. Celente seems to be a perpetual “doom and gloomer”, but nothing he says is impossible. Anything he mentions is a definite possibility with our government, given the “desired” circumstances. All we peons can do is keep prepping, stash weapons and ammo, and keep our minds clear in case of a staged panic. Good luck to all.

          Mr. Blutarsky,

          It makes you wonder why all governments all over the planet (at least the developed countries), are passing austerity measures simultaneously.
          It looks as if they rush to gather resources for some reason.
          I’m not sure but this smells like the society described in the Orwell’s 1984. Total control by the few over the billions, continuing wars in order to keep the mass busy and scared, absolute poverty of the many, and absolute luxury of the few.
          All that because of greed and intollerance.
          I’m not sure man, i’m not sure anymore. I only feel tired and disgust.

          Be safe.

        • They will be able to control people easily under with the FEAR of martial law. General public does not realize that the numbers stack in the favor of the average citizen. Letting them feel us up at the airport, letting countless laws and bills pass that chip away at our way of life, slowly strip our civil liberties and slide slowly into a police state are a few of the things conditioning the sheep of america to go willingly into the holding pen, scared, confused and pathetic. Sorry, I’m on one today. Nothing personal, JustMe, but you have to remember that most people do not think like those on these forums.

            it’s not the locals you have to worry about. it’s the thousands of foreign trained soldiers that are here already under United nations training protocols. They have no problem shooting locals. at some point, there will certainly be violence. I just don’t see every Billy Bob giving up his assault rifles very willingly—it ain’t going to happen-period.
            As soon as the first word of a violent seizure of weapons gets out, people are going to hide their guns, or simply get ready to fight to the finish. I just don’t see everyone giving up their weapons, just because some enacted law says they must. You have 200 years of tradition that says you have the right to bare arms, and people know this. And the public knows that the constitution IS the real law of the land, not some presidential executive order. The constitution supercedes all of it. I guess we don’t have long to find out.

      I wonder myself with all the fighting at the Fed level if we may loose our reseve status. The best way for the SHTF in my opinion is to loose it.

      Then entitlements may stop or be drastically cut and the people will riot and then marshall law will ensue.

        Why do you and the politician’s call them “Entitlements” like its some terrible thing? I know every week when i look at my check my Social Security and Medicare is taken out religiously. The average worker pays into this for 40-50 years before they can draw any of it back out. (If you live that long) Your right I’m entitled to that “Retirement money that i paid for” The problem is that government uses these things as some ideological divide. Anybody that works for a living should hate both parties right now. Follow the money and you will find the route of the problem. GREED & POWER!!!!!

        You want to solve problems then stop rewarding big business for sending jobs overseas. Cut up NAFTA and tax any corporation (Excessively)who wants to build their products overseas only to sell them back to us. Only solution is to build our way out of this mess. Unfortunately the system is so corrupt, the only hope at resolving this mess is a total collapse and a resulting revolution. The people that care are already on websites like these. The question is how does the message get to the uneducated. All we can do is tell everyone we know to prepare, but as you already know the average person is just too comfortable to realize what’s happening to society.

      This new budget doesn’t provide any cuts until 2014. After that, it would be only $100 billion per year for 10 years. by that point the national debt will be 30 trillion plus.

      I have been preparing for some time, with some hope that disaster could be avoided. I have now given that up. The countdown to collapse continues.

      Enjoy this last number of months where you have any ability to go on a trip, or take your woman out for ice cream and a movie.

      Everyone who rejoices in this future collapse should probably rethink their enthusiasm. Yes, this system is corrupt and needs to fall, but when the SHTF, it will suck. Anyone who has been through Ranger, or any other tough military school, knows that going for weeks without comforts is awful.

        Funny, I was just thinking about taking an overdue vacation while I can. It’s to the point where we would rather spend any extra money on preps than vaca and we are worried about being away from home when something gos down.

        I’ve been increasingly convinced that there should be a national recall effort. The trouble is, from what I’ve read, very few elected offices are subject to recall votes. Instead we should develop a “NO INCUMBENTS IN 2012″ drive. I’d hate lose a Ron Paul or Bernie Sanders this way, but we seriously need a housecleaning.
        Why couldn’t we a “vote of confidence in the government” as they do in Europe. A negative result triggers new elections. I don’t think we can wait four years for our government to be revamped.

      In my opinion, the most likely event would be internet based and financial in nature. Do you recall the “ghost” 1000 point drop in the DOW in a few minutes not too long ago ? Followed by an almost immediate recovery ? I do. As I recall, it was blamed on a “fat fingers” trade. In my opinion, that was a dry run or a system test. Currently ( and I stress currently ) there is nothing physical that can actually supplant the USD. There is not enough gold or silver; no other currency has the depth of liquidity needed. However; the technology does exist to replace the dollar with a digital currency of some sort. The only issue would be the need for an actual physical “note” for exchange. That need could rapidly be reduced by smart debit / credit cards in most nations and between almost all businesses. Even a large terrorist attack, if physical, would of necessity have limited impact. The only exception would be an EMP attack and even that, has real physical impact limitations. The only terrorist attack, for all practical purposes, that has the ability to have true global impacts would be internet and financial.

      Perhaps Mr Celente is over-reacting, but small daily effects on our income and lives are visible.
      Direct cuts in the monthly salary, direct increases in the social services payments, direct tax increases, have already decreased salaries around 20%.
      Indirect cuts such as rise in food prices, gas price, other goods and services increases, make another 15% loss of our monthly income.

      Best thing that could happen for our liberty is a cyber war or limited war with China or Russia where they targeted our GPS satellites, internet, and energy infrastructure. We have come to rely on the force-multiplying effect of our technology which can also be used to monitor and quell dissent within this country. A leveling of the playing field would be necessary for any realistic chance at throwing off our shackles. Could you picture a band of guerillas being able to operate for any length of time in a society with cell and internet tracking; infrared detecting drug helicopters, surveillance cameras at every intersection, license plate scanners, data mining of utility and county land records, credit card transaction monitoring, satellite photography, radar and laser topography to monitor land usage? This just scratches the surface of the surveillance power our government has over us and much of it is already in daily use against us. Leveling of the technological advantage which our government has against us is absolutely critical and the best chance of that rests in war with a country with the capability to take out that advantage.

          I beg to differ. We fought a limited war with Russia for more than 40 years without it going nuclear. China has been fighting a cyber war with us for more than a decade. Both countries have the ability to take down our satellites and destroy our economy and energy infrastructure at a safe distance. Clauswitz wrote a great book on the nature of warfare and it doesn’t take a genius to realize that the goals of taking the US down a few notches in the world and limiting the ability of US policymakers to project power does not necessarily mean an actual shooting war. The irony is the countermeasures used against our country would have very limited effects if used against either China or Russia. And forget all that crap about intertwined economies. Russian trade is one way, primarily involving natural resource sales. Cutting that off would hurt us more than them. China is still a communist country which happens to allow limited capitalism because of the hard currency it brings in which then allows them to grab the Western countries by the balls and squeeze hard; hence the buying of our bonds and propping up the Euro. Believe me, it is not the profit motive which motivates these actions. We have far more to lose from a nuclear war than the Chinese do and they know it which is why it will not happen. Our goals of individual liberty just happen to coincide nicely with our country’s enemys goal of limiting our ability to inflict our will on the rest of the world.

            Kinda long but needed…I did not write this.

            I am a former law officer with some 20 years of state and federal experience, ranging from patrol operations to criminal investigations, and special operations. I served in several executive positions as well. I am very concerned about the militarization of our police, the lack of respect of police accorded to private citizens, the arrogant attitude of police officers and their supervisors in regards to the rights of the American people and the US Constitution.

            Moreover, I am extremely concerned about the use of needless and senseless force against American citizens by police military raid teams (SWAT) serving to implement ordinary tasks that ordinary patrol officers used to perform. Now, it seems that so-called SWAT teams are routinely employed for all police operations and appear to have a primary purpose in terrifying people into compliance with vague, arbitrary and indeed, unlawful policy measures.

            Since when is a SWAT team used or justified in collecting a defaulted loan? Excuse me, but am I living the United States or in Nazi Germany, whose police originated the concept of SWAT teams? That’s right, the Nazi Gestapo conceived of the idea of using heavily armed police and military tactics against political dissidents or dangerous criminals with a twofold purpose. One was to overwhelm likely resistance. The second, was to terrify people into submission.

            Additionally, I am terribly concerned about the lack of accountability of police departments, mayors and county commissioners related to instances of excessive force, outright brutality, criminal conduct and disrespect of police officers, who seem to act as if they are above the law or beyond any standard of accountability.

            Contextually, my feelings are that citizens have a right to exact accountability and a higher degree of conduct from police officers than of the public at large. Moreover, they have a right to demand that officers not only know and maintain the law, but to abide by it.

            Consequently, I approve of citizens taking issue with police when they are abusive and act inappropriately. Patrolling the police and filming their activities is one measure I feel that is justified concurrent with the seemingly out of control and lawless conduct by many police departments across the United States. Police officers are public servants acting supposedly in the public’s interest and the public has the right to question them about their activities in that venue or to film them in the performance of their duties, especially in instances of possible criminal conduct by police.

            Part of the problem remains with public trust and a lack of interest by the public in enforcing accountability of police officers. We became complacent and too trustful. As citizens, we neglected our public duty and shrugged off police excesses. Now, that neglect has come to haunt us as our protectors are now preying upon us. There has been a fundamental and harmful paradigm shift. American police now treat us as security suspects rather than as citizens with rights to be upheld. And we don’t seem to be doing enough to reverse that trend.

            I am afraid of our police and I don’t say this lightly. Many of the officers employed today are of substandard quality. They are in many instances simply hired thugs. I feel it is very important to expand programs such as Cop Block and to link with other civic minded organizations in attempting to take back control of armed elements in our society, like the police.

            Additionally, as citizens we must use the full recourse of law available to us. This includes letters to police and sheriff department executives, to officer associations, to prosecutors and judges and if necessary to peacefully protest abuses. Filing Title 42 Civil Rights violations against departments and officers is a measure that needs to be considered as well. Recalling, firing, and suing public servants that condone police excesses should be a priority for any community that suffers from police abuses.

            In conclusion, I urge American citizens to not expand police powers. When I had the privilege of serving the American people, I had all the power I needed to do my job. Moreover, I am proud to say that I had the support of my fellow citizens as long as I respected them as people and upheld their rights. During my time, we were proud to be considered peace officers and not as ass kicking “enforcement” officers. There is a tremendous difference and you can see that difference as so-called law officers act as thugs and gangsters in routinely brutalizing American citizens across the United States. “Move or I’ll tase you,” is one common expression I am hearing from police — over and over.

            A good peace officer never needs to threaten to use force likely to cause serious injury or death to accomplish his mission. Back in my day, people understood that implicitly. We simply asked people to cooperate with us and never used force, unless it was absolutely necessary. Nor did we put people in jail and ruin their lives for trivial offenses. When we saw instances of abuse by fellow officers, we arrested them or got rid of them.

            It is absolutely critical to rethink the role of the police in America as we head into the second decade of the 21St century. Our police must remain faithful to the US Constitution and to protecting people and their rights as public servants, in our own communities,and under local supervision. American police must remain free of federal or national control. In this vein, they remain the guardians of a constitutional republic and not of a tyrannical national security state like Nazi Germany or the former Soviet Union.

            I salute you for your courage and keeping faith in the purpose of the United States

            *Hemp has been grown for at least the last 12,000 years for fiber (textiles and paper) and food. It has been effectively prohibited in the United States since the 1950s.

            *George Washington and Thomas Jefferson both grew hemp. Ben Franklin owned a mill that made hemp paper. Jefferson drafted the Declaration of Independence on hemp paper.

            *When US sources of “Manila hemp” (not true hemp) was cut off by the Japanese in WWII, the US Army and US Department of Agriculture promoted the “Hemp for Victory” campaign to grow hemp in the US.

            *Because of its importance for sails (the word “canvass” is rooted in “cannabis”) and rope for ships, hemp was a required crop in the American colonies.

            INDUSTRY FACTS

            *Henry Ford experimented with hemp to build car bodies. He wanted to build and fuel cars from farm products.

            *BMW is experimenting with hemp materials in automobiles as part of an effort to make cars more recyclable.

            *Much of the bird seed sold in the US has hemp seed (it’s sterilized before importation), the hulls of which contain about 25% protein.

            *Hemp oil once greased machines. Most paints, resins, shellacs, and varnishes used to be made out of linseed (from flax) and hemp oils.

            *Rudolph Diesel designed his engine to run on hemp oil.

            *Kimberly Clark (on the Fortune 500) has a mill in France which produces hemp paper preferred for bibles because it lasts a very long time and doesn’t yellow.

            *Construction products such as medium density fiber board, oriented strand board, and even beams, studs and posts could be made out of hemp. Because of hemp’s long fibers, the products will be stronger and/or lighter than those made from wood.

            *The products that can be made from hemp number over 25,000.

And those troops came from somewhere in our 50 states. The number defecting or simply going AWOL would be catastrophic (and probably tote their guns with them). Any military action to round up and incarcerate massive numbers of US citizens would have to be carried out by a military other than our own… and would probably end up facing our own, regardless of what orders our guys received. Our guys on the front lines may be in the military, but few have gone to it as a career and are fully planning on going home to their families.

        Its used for political fodder and nothing more. It makes the pro gun community donate.

        No gun confiscation begins far more slowly. Taxing ammunition, required registration, more hoops then you can imagine, more people banned individually for “mental illness and driving violations.” It will take a generation or two – and they are willing to take 3 if needed.

      The sky will be partly cloudy and there will be a chance of additional lending by the banks for those of you who have not defaulted on your mortgage.

      There is a time and season for martial law and the 20,000 troops trained to protect DC and Wall Street, from the looters and rioters on the east coast who are not busy rappin’; but now is not it.

      Eventually these malcontents will be gassed, stacked like cord wood, and shuffled off to the FEMA camps for re-education, since the last indoctrination by the Department of Education obviously didn’t take. But again, now is not that time.

      Keep prepping. Speculate in silver, invest in gold (even the gangster banksters believe it will double or triple from here) and hoard your lead. They won’t be making anymore of it when the S eventually HTF.

          • Its not about giving the banks cash. Its about buying the Bonds from the US Government that no one else will buy….print/buy = Quantitative Easing. There is a reason the lenders are hoarding dollars.

            a) They fear hyper inflation in which case the money loaned out will be worthless. At least in their control they can spend what they can at the last second;

            b) They fear deflation in which case cash would be king; for lending it out will only produce default (like we saw in the housing market).

            Either way the banks are not lending. Hence the government is printing.

They lift all boats. The freer the better.

        There are four formulas for determining inflation: M0, M1, M2, M3. The higher the number, the more all-inclusive the inputs; the lower the number, the more exclusive. M3 had long been the standard. Then came the 80′s. “Mr. President, we have a problem.” Reagan: “Change the way M3 is calculated. See. No problem anymore.” And that worked… for a while. And, if I remember correctly, it was under W that someone again said, “Mr. President, we may have a problem.” The answer: Substitute the M2 formula for the M3. See. No problem.

        BUT, a number of economists have continued tracking the M3 data. That data shows that for the past 3 to 4 years annual inflation has consistently been at 10+% annually. That IS hyperinflation, especially when coupled with the rapid decline in median household income.

        Hyperinflation is effectively already here. It has just been mathematically swept under the rug so that it can be denied. However, those of us who buy anything regularly know full well it’s happening.

        As for ELEnin: I am trying to keep an open mind and the coincidences are unusual BUT I just think there would be more “action” on other bodies by now. There isn’t.

        Zeta Talk mentions a “dark twin” sneaking up behind US. Yes there is a “dark something” following US as there is an asteroid in our orbit (like those that follow Jupiter), but it is both above and below the plane.

        Why hasn’t ELEnin thrown many asteroids our way, or affected this one if it really is so massive?

        Just not enough evidence to make me a big believer, yet. Maybe another 30 days will make a difference.

          Again, Elenin is only the beginning of an entourage, and I think some of her may be more things in the heavens than the actual here…if that makes sense? I guess we will se shortly, I really think though that the EQ data with her alignments cant be ignored and that like I said, a lot to do with her is things in the heavens, and The destroyer is coming behind her…but if Elenin don’t do much in the physical here on earth, many will use that as an excuse to not listen in the future. These are all puzzle pieces that are trying to fit together and I am seeing more and more now how things don’t happen like everyone thought they would….like in that radio interview I posted with Nathan Leal and Augusto Perez and how the pictures of what John seen and wrote in Revelations about are constellations and happenings in the skies.

      Does anyone actually believe that a bunch of Arabs who weren’t even proficient flying a single engine, prop aircraft used for training could actually navigate and perform complicate aerobatic maneuvers in twin engine, ‘heavy’ commercial jet airliners and fly them into three buildings with unerring precision? Skilled commercial pilots with thousands of hours flying time have tried to duplicate the maneuvers that would have been required by the aircraft that hit the Pentagon. They couldn’t do it.

      If anything of this nature were to go down, it would be a ‘false-flag’ incident supposedly staged by “domestic terrorists” in order to justify the imposition of martial law in the United States.

      First and foremost, they have to scare the crap out of the average American ‘sheeple’ to get them to go along with the imposition of martial law. I, for one, don’t think that I will be lining up to get on the bus to Camp FEMA.

      MM: 911 was conceived by bearded men in a cave. It was initiated by bearded men on the planes with boxcutters who had been trained sufficiently to fly the planes.

      The plans of these men were interecepted by circumsized men who followed the group, shadowed the group, and arranged for the WTC to be purchased under special circumstances that would provide for a billion daller profit if the buildings were destroyed.

      The man who bought the WTC was also circumsized and received more than 4 billion dollars on a three billion dollar purchase when the buildings were destroyed within 90 days of the purchase.

      The buildings were brought down by thermalite, a very powerful and sophisticated nano explosive possessed by only a few governments and ….. the Mossad.

      911 was conceived by Al-Queda but executed by Mossad.

      I also see, in my area, lots of bikers, town festivels that are packed and the local grocery store is full.

      I do not see huge numbers of people using coupons, food stamps or picking up day old bread in the store. (Many of the seniors who did that have died.)

      Imagine if you can an incident taking place that pushes the American people(or some segment to start) over the edge,anything,two or ten incidends…whatever it might be…then imagine riots breaking out in lets say LA…rioting turns really ugly,thousands of people turn out into the steets,buildings burn,cops die,people die…it escalates and by day three the mayor of LA and the govner call out for help(from the feds) to put down the violence and restore order,thousands of troops and police from around the country pour into LA county.

      The next day the same thing happens in San fran and the govt must pour more troops into SF,it spreads all up and down the coast and California is in full rebellion…hours later a fight breaks out in NYC as groups of youths begin to emulate the scenes from California and police respond with force intent on stopping a repeat of the violence raging on the west coast which has flared up and now spread eastward into several cities in Arizona,violence erupts also in Miami after a group of youths were shot by police as they ransacked a shopping strip and beat several dozen bystanders.
      In mid America several cities have erupted into flames as protesters and trouble makers take to the steets,some angry about the austerity measures and the martial law being imposed by the various levels of govt,some using the situation as cover for criminal activity and excitement…in several cities the violence has turned into racial conflict as blacks and hispanic gangs take advantage of the chaos to fight each other and the local police…whites begin to arm themselves and shoot anyone who they feel may threaten them,regardless of color…in upstate NY the mohawk reservation has armed itself and threatened to kill anyone who enters their area after several indian youths were gunned down just south of the reservation in what many are calling a race based shooting by a local sheriffs deputy.
      All over the country people are armed and edgy,it takes little,real or imagined to get shot,while law enforcement in some areas has managed to keep the lid on the situation it is becoming apparent that the govt has lost control;and with the president today declaring a nationwide curfew and martial law, more and more cities and small boros are seeing violence breaking out.Food and water as well as medicine are in short supply as stores are sold out or cleaned out by mobs intent on grabbing anything of value while they can,many people have been kille or injured by these mobs as they try to get home with their goods only to be robbed along the way.

      Now tell me what good 20,000 or 20,000,000 troops are gonna do,we could in such a scenario wake up ok on Monday and by Friday find that everything has changed,no amount of troops and LEOs or even added UN peacekeepers could even begin to deal with such a mess,they cant do it not even with all their supposed global power,and the scenario I attempted to paint above didnt even account for all the states and militia groups as well as everybody else just jumping into the fray…military and LEOS will be heading for home and no one in their right mind will want to be seen in a uniform that represents the standing order….just my way of showing the obvious powerlessness of the PTB when TSHTF for real…even if I aint no Hollywood writer… :) thanks!

We have better health care, better education, a higher standard of living, higher wages and less taxes. We have fewer laws and less crime. (Hell, in New Zealand the cops are still debating if they should start to carry firearms, or just stick to a can of pepper spray and a batten) We don’t have the death penalty, like North Korea, China and the US.

            In WWI we had captured Samoa, fought the Gallipoli Campaign, fought for 2 years already on the Western Front and were mopping up the Siani and Palestine Campaign in the Middle East before Americans even stepped ashore in Europe

            In WWII we were already fighting in the skies over Europe, had fought for Greece and Crete, were helping defend Malta, had swept through Syria, and spent 2 years fighting Rommel in the
            Western Desert before America finally decided to get involved.

            We, Australia and New Zealand, have a pretty good reputation for a fight. We don’t stand back and wait for an invite. We were first to declare war .. Not the last.

            But what do I care. Just remember this Durango Kid …..

      Terrorist attacks, for the most part, are pinpricks incapable of doing long-term damage to an economy. That may change if/when terrorist organizations obtain WMD and the ability to deploy them. But I digress… Permanent damage to our economy is being done every day in Washington D.C. That’s where the real terror is. And that’s where the machine sowing the seeds of our destruction lays.
      Give me a break on the whole ‘FEMA camp thing’. It doesn’t take long to build a crappy concentration camp. Why would the Feds tip their hand a decade or more before declaring martial law? That’s a canard. Always has been.
      20,000 troops trained to deal with civil unrest and economic collapse? Ummmm… Yeah… So what? They’re called Iraq and Afghanistan. Over the past ten years, I’d say more than 20,000 troops have received specialized training on those topics. Look, folks, there aren’t enough soldiers/sailors/airmen/marines in the country to pacify it in its entirety. When the SHTF, government is going to call up the army guard and try to keep the inner cities from imploding. Maybe Posse Comitatus gets suspended, but that will be when things are spiraling totally out of control. And by then, it’ll be too late. Eventually those guys in uniform are going to want to go and take care of their wives and kids. Just like you are now. Soldiers aren’t robots.
      Do yourselves a favor and don’t get distracted by the boogeyman “terrorist”. Outside of keeping your carry permit up to date, there’s not much you can do about them. Stay focused on the enemy within. That enemy just raised the debt ceiling another two trillion. Aaaaahhh… Smell that fiat currency printing press.

        We all feel your pain of not knowing whats next and the fact is NOBODY KNOWS…. But to help you make your own mind up try tracking some of your expense’s. For me it is a simply way to figure out the trend. I tracked some basic food items over a 6 month timeline , like a gallon of milk in Jan it was $3.15 last night i bought the same milk at the same store the cost was $4.26. now divide the 3.15 by the 4.26 and what you have is the fact that milk has gone up alittle over 29% in that time line. So if you track some Items you can figure out what is going to happen at the current rate. One again NOBODY KNOWS where this country is going, I have been coming here since Jan 30th and I do my preps with the best of them. However take everything with a grain of salt, cause I have lost count to how many times I have heard its right around the corner now.

          DPS: Amazing story about the milk because typically staples like milk and bread, etc are the last things to rise in price as the government subsidizes the basics so people can afford to eat … and drink milk.

            Well maybe its becasue I like my pbj at night it was just the 1st thing that came to mind. I don’t shop at walmart for food, the only thing I buy at walmart is ammo and if it wasn’t for my g/f getting her heart drugs there I would even buy ammo there.As far as rising cost of staple foods you have to understand I live in the grain country, and the dairy country here in the panhandle of tx we are the last ones to see the cost of all goods go up. But the trend at the market is crazy right now, you will be seeing beef cost drop very soon due to the drought this will be followed by huge increases on beef and pork. No water for ranchers means sell early to reduce loss, and In turn buy selling early means less beer and pork for next yr. So stock up, learn to store and dry your meat folks while you can still afford meat.

        GG: “By coming to pass” I guess you mean an economic collapse. Personally I do not see a collapse. We already had a “collapse”. All of the economic guru’s who have predicted “collapse” and “hyper-inflation” for the past two or three years have been wrong because they did not truly understand the banking system and how it works.

        I do.

        Unless there is a major earth change in the USA or elsewhere; an EMP, or war between Iran and Israel, there will be no collapse. Still, expect inflation by a thousand cuts, as currencies realign and changes to the financial system occur. Begin your prep.

        Prepping isn’t about fear. It is about a positive response to negative events. Yes food,fuel, and all other consumer goods will increase in price over time: as they always have; just more now than before, and probably more frequently as time passes.

        Inflation will pick up noticeably across the board by the end of the year and into next year. Expect things to get a bit better before they get much worse.

        Food stores are important to your family. Locate your local LDS food center (Morman) and follow their plan. They have been at it for a long time. They know what they are doing.

        There are many food links here:

        http://shtffood.blogspot.com

        where you can find the information you need to prep. Worry is for people who do not know how to pray.

      I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again. It is impossible for the US government to implement martial law. Why? The logistics of such an operation and the size of the nation. There is not enough LEO agents to do it. Yes the police has been militarized but if there a shtf scenario most will stay at home to protect their communities and families. There is about 800,000 LEO(federal,state,and local) what would happen is 25-50% of those cops do not show up for work.

      If there is a major crisis that sends the entire country into chaos, it would highly unlikely that the U.S. military will be able to enforce a lock-down of the entire nation.

      Even if the military manages to acquire all 1.5 million reserves and utilize 1 million of it’s total 1.5 million personnel in the Navy, Army, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard, it would struggle to control 308-310 million citizens in a land mass of 9,161,966 sq km.
      American law enforcement numbers are not as strong as some of you think. According to the BLS (bureau of Labor Statistics), there were only 883,600 law enforcement personnel in 2008. And that was before the financial collapse and subsequent layoffs in local departments across the nation. The number included detectives, managers, police and sheriff’s patrol officers.

      So when you add the 2,500,000 soldiers and the 883,000 law enforcement, you have a force of 3.3 million agents. This is less than one percent of America’s highly-armed population. Most of these agents will be working logistics and support for handling prisoners, transportation, intelligence and supply. But this isn’t even the biggest problem.

      The police are used to dealing with people who are afraid of them and have something to lose. In a collapse scenario, the rioters will lack both characteristics. And the military will be poorly suited to police a populace that is desperation for resources. If the soldiers became violent against the population, they could divide the armed forces and spark a civil war.

      It would be very difficult for the U.S. military to successfully implement martial law throughout the entire country at any given time. This would mean that they would have to secure hundred of thousands of neighborhoods, while securing all major airports, power stations, communication towers, water facilities, nuclear power plants, military bases, food distribution center, grocery stores, government official buildings and highways while keeping everyone in their homes after 6pm.

      Bringing in foreign troops would problematic, because if the U.S. is in a panic, wouldn’t the other countries that are so heavily tied to America also have their own problems. Plus, we know how well foreign occupations went in Afghanistan, Vietnam and Iraq.

      In all the government does not want a crisis because they are weak and incompetent to accomplish a large operation like this.

        MA: Good rationale, but half the cops will not stay home when they can suck up all that overtime at time and a half in fiat currency. And most of the military will still be deployed globally to protect the Queen’s assets.

        Martial law is not designed to police US, only to try and intimidate US into following the government’s directives. Martial law will be used, primarily, to protect essential (read government and strategic) installations; from looters, rioters, and the hungry hordes, mostly in the NE Corridor and DC.

      Organize a Constitutional Congress state by state with the Governor of each to in turn organize a true representation of their own constituency to restore power to the states and re-apply the actual Constitution as written and originally intended. That is the only way to resolve the incompetence and abuse bestowed by the Federal Bureaucracy which has long lost sight of what they represent, the people and citizens of this fine land. To go off hotheaded and try to create a revolution will result in the loss of life of the best people and not accomplish a thing, short of suicide.

      Message to you american military fellows only,
      If you decide to obey orders from your superiorsthat are unconstitutional and are murderous to our people here in the U.S. then You all will stand for trial and then hung, you all will be breaking the law if you fire on just one citizen. do you all understand , you will tried for treason and then hung or shot according to the constitution.
      If there are foreign troops assisting american soldiers in the killing of our citizens then there will be no trial for them, only death, and they are never going back home to where they came from.

      Does that mean we don’t have to pay our mortgages and credit dards. Because if martial law is installed no one will work because there will be no work to do. Lawns won’t be cut, driveways won’t be paved or repaired. No home improvements, nothing. Then my money will run out for food. Will my children starve? No. I will then go with groups of militia men and take back this country one borough at a time. There isn’t but 2-3 million armed forces and police, but over 12 million armed civilians plus another 2-4 million not organized, but ready to fight. You here me suckers. CAN YOU DIGGAAAAAAATT!!

      Most of your may have been to young to remember early on the run up that brought us here to this current point in history. Myself, I still remember the lies they fed everyone so we would turn a blind eye to their nonsense. For instance, Sen. Bob Dole ‘Yes I am aware that those I represent are calling in 1,000 to 1 against the GAT treaty, but I am more informed than they are.” Or the line about how are country operates best at 11% unemployment as they moved our factories over seas. How about this one, We are in a position where Americans could all receive a check in the mail from wealth generated by our status as the world reserve currency issuers. Again, BS, as they drive our industry into Chinas waiting arms. My favorite, the news paper industry is no longer going to cover the news as they did in the past because Americans no longer have the reading skills to understand what they print. “Dumbing down if you will” as a cloak was drawn across the freedom of press. People still hungered for the truth, but by this flimsy excuse it was denied them. I could go on and on but you get the picture. We have been painted into the corner by those we were to trust, but alas, in vain.

      Clark: Thanks for validating my existence! I don’t know what I would do without your approval. :-) As far as the “American Religion’ thing, I am not going to debate a third party who isn’t posted here. Did you see that kid/ what a loser!!! :-)

      I will say that if you can afford a home or other real estate and you know what you are doing in real estate; buy a home, or ranch, or cabin, or piece of land in foreclosure from a bank, if you want it.

      Now is a great time to buy real estate, especially if you have the skills and cash to negotiate a really low price. Unfortunately, you have no assets, no cash, and don’t know the first thing about home ownership or investment real estate. That’s just the way it is. Someday maybe.

      Personally, I am looking for the right bank branch with a vault for my gold. :-) Not gonna apologize for that Clark.

      Yes, I believe strongly in a college education or higher education of some sort that results in a degree or certification of some sort. We have covered that ground before. That YOU have neither a higher education or certificate of some kind, is pretty apparent from the lack of knowledge that you have displayed over time on these posts.

      I have never said that I support “intervention” or that “politicians and bureaucrats have special talents for guiding the economic conduct of others”. Where did you dredge that up from?

      If you believe that yard sale economics is the answer to a $14 trillion dollar economy, will fix America’s economic woes, and replace the managed trade of the gangster banksters, you are dumber than a mud fence. Really. Thats just stupid. Its not even defensible which demonstrates the level of your understanding of economics and a grasp of the situation.

      What happened to hyper-inflation Clark? I am not a keynesian advocate but I do understand the economics of the model. You have been very vocal over the past nine months about the failure of keynesian polices and the immediate prospect of hyper-inflation. Where is the hyper-inflation Clark?

      WE now know that not only did Uncle Ben print $2.4 trillion of stimulus money for the US banking system between 2008 and 2010, We also now know that he printed $16 trillion and loaned it globally to nations, int’l banks, and corporations. Thats seven times the $2.4 trillion stimulus for the USA. 7 TIMES!

      Where’s the hyper-inflation Clark? Where is the failure of the keynesian model? Can you explain to me why there is NO hyper-inflation after Uncle Ben has printed more than $18 trillion in the past 2.5 years?

      Please tell me Clark that you can find a cut and paste link from your daddy LOU to explain why there is NO hyper-inflation after $18 trillion dollars have been printed and diseminated.

      You are the banking expert Clark. You are the economic genius here, pushing “free trade” and “yard sale economics”. Please explain to all of US why there is NO hyper-inflation now, or when it will begin.

      Thanks Clark! I knew I could count on you to explain it in your own words. :-)

I noticed your lack of argument against the position given about the blog post, “I Would Rather Shoot Myself In the Head Than Buy Another House” Not that it doesn’t make sense for some People, just not for All People.

      Yes, Durango Kidd, you have often said you support “intervention”. We’ve been through this, you’re a merchantilist, that is you support restricting your neighbors ability to trade with whomever they please. Quite sad, your love of theft and desire to bully your neighbor.

      You ask, What happened to hyper-inflation?

      Marc Faber has told you, it’s more likely now than ever before.

      Also, other than gold and contrary to your protests, you Do advocate the Keynesian position.

      It’s quite sickening to see you put down those who support the barter network and the free market that made America Great and is the solution to our problems. I noticed your lack of a, “why”.

      It’s also quite sad to see you attack me personally, as if you know Jack about me anyway.

      You probably have bad things to say Davey Crockett too.

        Clark: You haven’t answered the question. “Why don’t we have hyper-inflation?” Or, “When are we going to have hyper-inflation?”

        Pointing to Mark Fabers comment that it is “more likely that we will have hype-inflation now than ever before”, is like saying it is partly cloudy with a slight chance of rain. GMAFB!

        You are the expert Clark. You are the one pushing free trade, free markets, and Mises. You are the one pushing Lou Rockwall. You push ideologies and concepts that do not exist and never have existed with the exception of the American Indian. We all know how that turned out for them.

        These are euphanisms.

        Slogans designed by the NWO Globalists to make Americans believe they are a “freedom” when in reality they are managed trade benefiting the gangster banksters at the expense of the American economy, intended to economically enslave the American worker, taxpayer, and family.

        You can put lipstick on a pig Clark, but it is still a pig.

        Yes I believe that America should defend its markets, economy, and its jobs. Call it “intervention” if you want. Label it mercantilism or anything else you want. That doesn’t insult me in the least. Mercantilism is not a bad word, just a label the NWO globalists want to use to make the defense of America’s economy, markets, and jobs seem like a bad thing. It is not.

        And every time you debate the volcabulary here with me it gives me the chance to expose the meaning and the truth of the process to the many readers here. Anyone who doesn’t believe me can believe the evidence. The evidence is clear: free trade and free markets have bankrupted America, put 45 million Americans on food stamps, and created 18-22% unemployment in America, including you! Thank you, Clark! :-)

        You like to disparage Keynes and label me a Keynesian, as if that too is a bad word. I don’t buy it and neither should anyone else. Uncle Ben has printed more than $18 trillion dollars in 2.5 years yet there is NO hyper-inflation. Why not?

        Where is the hyper-inflation Clark? Why don’t we have hyper-inflation Clark? Why can’t you post a link from some financial brainiac you follow like a fucking stooge, to explain it, because you can’t explain it yourself?

        If EVER hyper-inflation was going to exist in America, surely the printing of more than $18 trillion dollars between 2008 and 2010 should have triggered it by now, don’t cha think?

        Get a clue, Clark, there is still time to enroll in College for the Fall semester if you have a GED!

            DPS: At least you admit your ignorance about banking. I admit I do not know all city, county, and state rules regulations, and ordinances. You probably do within your jurisdiction.

            Ignorance is not a character flaw.

            It only represents a lack of knowledge about a particular topic. Ignorance becomes a character flaw when someone tries to pass themselves off as an expert when they have no education, experience, or special expertise on the topic they pretend to know; while they spread disinformation and propaganda.

            This is what Clark has been doing for some time. As for hyper-inflation it has a specific financial definition, and while you may be experiencing double digit inflation; double digit inflation is NOT hyper-inflation.

            There is a very big difference. Besides, WE already know that you are a very bad SHOPPER if you can’t find milk for less than #3.00 a gallon. :-)

      I hear different thinks from different “experts” about how bad things might become (riots in streets, empty food shelves at the local stores, widespread looting & thieving, death of the dollar & only gold/silver or barter system working, gas & power shortages, even water shortages, collapse of banks & closing of their doors with the FDIC unable to make good on insured deposits, attempted confiscation of gold, etc). So who knows how bad things might become. One thing I’m fairly sure of, better to have hidden gold/silver than dollars in the bank. The US dollar is dying & inflation is kicking in. It’s not all Obama’s fault, but he continued all the bad trends Tea Party people told him not to pursue & rammed everything down our throat anyways. He & his high paid, misguided Keynesian economists have succeeded in getting the credit worthiness of the USA downgraded for the first time in history (not that it shouldn’t have been downgraded before!). The downhill slide of the USA will now accelerate. America has become an almost unrecognizable welfare/warfare/police state. This will get worse. I’m not sure how it will all end. Will good ideas triumph & we return to our roots laid down by our Founding Fathers?

      Clark: No joke, Martial law will not affect me one bit where I am at in Arizona. There will not be any troops where I am at and if the local sheriff or his deputy comes by, hey! We’ll take some target practice and have some coffee.

      I do not advocate the Keynesian “position”. If I did I would not be calling for the defense of American markets from the gangster banksters, so I am not “one of them”. Quit reading half truths from the internet, and passing them off as economic gospel. Pick up an economic text book, and you will know the difference.

      Bartering will be useful after the Changes as a medium of exchange between individuals or groups with skills or goods to share and/or trade. Particulary if there is not a commonly agreed upon “money” (for a store of value and a medium of exchange) or enough gold and silver to go around.

      Bartering of this nature allows people to get what they want for what they are willing to give up, thus a meeting of the minds could take place to ratify the exchange. This process would be successful in minor, and individual transactions. Yard sale economics.

      Bartering is more than negotiation which is part of the equation, where individuals or groups set their asking price and establish their price of acceptance. It is not an efficient strategy between nations, which is WHY it is not practiced commercially. Ever hear of a Letter of Credit? Bill of Exchange?

      America has a $14 trillion economy. Bartering did not make this nation great. That is your error. It is inefficient and cumbersome. How many bags of rice are you going to give me for a Boeing 787? And do you expect me to deliver that 787 before you give me that rice?

      You do not understand banking, Clark. I cannot expect you to understand even the fundamentals of international commerce.

      I attack you personally because you deserve it. You have neither the education, experience, or special expertise required to comment upon economics, banking, or finance, (and especially real estate) yet you insist upon cutting and pasting comments and links to topics which you do not fully understand.

      Who said the next big staged attack will be an EMP is right. Here is what I predict and most of the predictions have already happened.
      1. Big Banks get bigger (This has already happened and is still happening in the guise of economic collapse)
      2. Once the banks have been really consolidated, there will be a huge well placed EMP shock that will erase all your money, pension, mortgage, etc and this will be blamed on non-other than the sun’s Coronal Mass Ejection theory. This will not only erase all your funds, but will disable your utilities, giving the government all the authority needed for enacting martial law.
      3. Everyone will be in disarray, divided and enraged. There will be mass rioting and the elitists will be controlling these mobs and riots from the shadows, as they will have separate networks not affected by this massive emp blast.

      The emasculation of our nation will now shift into a higher gear as people continue to align with political correctness, the correctness that is replacing Truth. Why is it we cannot see that our freedom is result and not an entitlement? That is the mindset that is loading the debt ceiling. The separation from distinctions that will not even allow us to have a border or see the separation of gender will be complete much sooner now that we have this feminine teaching in place that would have us believe its “all good”, that there are no boundaries anywhere and what we actually do is secondary to how we FEEL. The remnants of the intrinsic link of accounting (economy) to accountability, (morality) will soon be gone as we rely more and more on people that align with political correctness (politicos AND clergy) who urge us all to see accountability as legalistic. Our constitution is ITSELF about laws and the reason we are losing it (lost it?) is because we are just too stinking dialectic to “get it”. People, Im am begging you… PLEASE WAKE UP! There are boundaries that exist in spite of your opinion.
      The government we have is a mirror of who we are and time to change is fast running out as we enlist our hopes someone else’s money. The moral debt and the economic debt is 100% equal collectively. Any attack, either physical and spiritual is what we allow to the degree we are not willing to take a stand against it. GaryK
