    16 Reasons Why the United States is Going to Hell in a Handbasket

    hell-in-a-hand-basket

    A couple of weeks a go after expressing an urgency to put our preps into high-gear, several readers asked why that I felt so strongly, about it, and why I felt the “the end” was getting close. I think that is a good and reasonable question, so I decided to do a write up, and offer an explanation. As you can see, I don’t think any one problem or event will cause the collapse of the American empire, but a number of separate but interlocking events and issues.

    Another point to consider is that the U.S. government has the resources, and inside information that would allow them to foretell when a major disaster or complete collapse is coming and they have been prepping and building underground bunkers on a mass scale and despite the fact our tax dollars are being used to build those bunkers we are not invited.

    Free Trade with Communist China

    Communist China is not our friend and has overtaken the U.S. economically, and will be in a position to surpass the U.S. militarily within the next ten years. Yet we continue to import, buy and consume their products by the millions everyday. In fact it’s getting more and more difficult to  buy a product in the U.S. that does not have the “made in china” label attached to it. U.S. goods and private services trade with China totaled $439 billion in imports 2012.

    Meanwhile china uses those funds to build it’s military might and expand it’s military technology.  The U.S has even been selling and giving china advanced technology that could be used against the U.S.  in a military confrontation. A large portion of that technology has passed from the U.S. to Israel and then from Israel on to China.

    In 2012 a pentagon contractor was caught selling military technology to China (no doubt bought with funds that U.S. consumers of “made in China” products had sent them) according to the report they had sold China the software and engines needed to make its first-ever modern attack helicopter.

    A break down of the traditional family

    America has turned from a nation promoting morality and a belief in God to a nation where anything goes, with the most perverse and ungodly acts being accepted, promoted and even glorified.  And if anyone disagrees, or speaks-out against this immorality they are quickly labeled as promoting hate, bigotry or of being a racist. This quickly shuts most opponents up while simultaneously, implanting the message in everyone’s mind, that those acts in-question are are to be accepted and are somehow cool.

    A  break down of morality

    Everywhere we turn today we (and our children) are bombarded with images of sex and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, music, and TV. This constant bombardment has promoted promiscuity, and corrupted the minds of the American people and made us into a nation a degenerates and perverts. And in many cases molesters of children and even animals.

    According to this report Americans spend 13.1 billion dollars on pornography every year.

    Americans spend 13.1 billion dollars on pornography every year, which is the same amount the country spends on foreign aid. More than 260 million Internet pages are pornographic, an increase of 1,800% in just five years. Christian Broadcasting Network said: “We’re living in a sex-saturated society. Even the popular culture is often pulsing to a pornographic beat. Clothing that was seen only in porn magazines decades ago, now drapes some of our most celebrated pop icons

    A declining belief in God, the Bible and Christian values

    According to a report on The Daily Mail,  “Americans starting to lose faith? Belief in God and miracles declines as Darwinism becomes more popular” from the report;  The number of Americans who believe in God is declining, as a new poll shows a move away from traditional beliefs.  The Harris poll, which questioned more than 2,250 adults about their beliefs, found that those with the strongest faith lived mostly in the South, voted Republican, and were black.  The online poll also showed that more Americans were describing themselves at ‘not very religious’ and that there was an increase in those believing in Darwin’s theory of evolution.

    As a nation we are turning away from God and the religious principles that this nation was built on, these founding principles have been what has held us together as a nation and kept us strong, but it seems that we are banning God from the country and our lives.

    Declining freedom and turning away from a constitutional government

    We have been seeing a decline in freedom for a longtime but after 9-11 the lose of personal freedom, privacy and constitutional rights have been on a rapid decline. Now we are constantly, watched, monitored and recorded, we can now legally be detained and held indefinitely without a trial or due process. And U.S. citizens can even be assassinated on U.S. soil by order of the president.

    Just like the imaginary, war on drugs, the war on terror has been used as an excuse to trample on individual constitutional rights and to increase the power of the government and the ultra wealthy that control the country from behind the curtains. Scare the population enough and they will willingly turn over their freedom and rights for a promised margin of safety – even Glenn Beck was so afraid after 9-11 that he supported Patriot Act.

    As has been said; and is practiced religiously, by those in power “never let a crisis good  go to waste“, this is also the same tactic that the Obama administration tried to use to destroy the second amendment after the Sandy Hook ordeal

    A militarization of  the police forces nationwide

    It seems that just about everyday I get emails from readers and read news reports of police abuse of power – everything from shooting and killing an unarmed and handcuffed man, to shooting a suspect in the back while running away, or a man executed by police for camping on public land (did you hear the “officer” yell, Booyah after shooting the man 6 times?), all justified of course,  to police shooting and killing chained and caged dogs. Even puppies and a 5 pound Chihuahua aren’t safe from thugs in uniform.

    And now to make matters worse police departments around the country seem to be gearing up for war with military hardware, and tactics. Who do they plan on going to war with you ask, well the American people of course, who else. We are already living in a police state under a “soft” form of martial law, and they are getting ready to tighten the screws down even tighter, that’s why those in power are getting all of this in place.

    A one party political system

    Many Americans think that they have a choice when they enter the voting booth. Well guess what they don’t – republicans and democrats, democrats and republicans what’s the difference? Neither represent the American people or give one big crap about defending individual rights or the Constitution.

    In the U.S. we have a one party system masquerading as a two party system, to give voters the illusion of having a choice and hope for change, but both parties are controlled by the same people who really run the country. The system is rigged and we don’t have a choice…

    Corruption of the political system

    See above.  As former Governor of Minnesota, Jesse Ventura has said; when you spend millions of dollars to get elected to a position that pays a hundred thousand a year, we know those figure don’t add up. They are all a bunch of crooks – money, ego and a hunger for power has corrupted the American political system.

    “The truth is there are very few members [of the U.S. Congress] who I could even name or could think of who didn’t at some level participate in that [system of bribery and corruption in Washington D.C.].” Jack Abramoff, professional lobbyist and onetime power broker for the elite of Washington, D.C. (during a CBS’s 60 Minutes interview, Sunday November 6, 2011)

    School system used to indoctrinate children

    Government ran school systems are nothing more than indoctrination centers for our children, a place where they can be groomed and molded to the liking the government via propaganda that was designed by trained psychoanalysts to make future generations of American citizens into subservient slaves in a Big Brother police state.

    When I was going to school, I carried pocket knives, (so did other kids and no one got cut or murdered) and I even read gun magazines in the classroom and no one said anything, other than my teachers asking to take a look at the magazines after I was done. I think they were just glad that I was reading something. I remember one boy bringing a sling-shot to school, and we set up a cardboard box and shot at it with the sling-shot, while the teachers watched.

    Now school is like a prison where everything is watched and monitored and any form of free expression is suppressed and quickly beaten down. They are training children to be adults who view being constantly watched and monitored by “authorities”  as normal and even to be welcomed and demanded by a subservient population.

    They are also training children to be dumbed down adults that can not think for themselves, to have no personal beliefs, thoughts or opinion other than what they are told by the “authorities” via the government controlled main-stream media.  Children are

    He alone, who owns the youth, gains the Future!

    – Adolf Hitler, speech at the Reichsparteitag, 1935

    Please read – Hitler Youth… and Indoctrination by Our Public Schools.

    A government controlled main-stream media via newspapers, magazines, radio, movies and TV

    The stuff that you see on broadcasts like CNN aren’t news or reporting but the controlled media simply spewing forth talking points that have been provided for them by the white house and other government agencies – this has beenadmitted to by main stream “news” organizations.

    The corporate media is now openly admitting that they are in fact controlled stenographers that do nothing more than echo pre-scripted narratives outlined in talking points created by the rulers of America’s shadow government.

    They use the main stream corporate media to push their agenda and views and to pursued the American people to do and believe what they want them to do and believe all while believing that it’s for their own good and was their decision.  This is called mass media brainwashing and those in power are good at it.

    People as drones, as automatons, in some kind of mind-control stupor, while thinking they are living in a free society.  I don’t say this with disdain, but more as matter of fact.

    Taking control of the internet…

    Just about the only semi-free media left is the internet, and that is why they want to control it. Currently the Obama administration is about to introduce a Chinese-style ID program for everyone and a few other tweaks that will afford government agencies and their controllers to tights their grip and control of everything done and said online.

    What Obama has done to free speech is kill it dead utilizing a bias-oriented justice system and governmental control. He has effectively put the gears forward to shut down free speech on the internet, and is now planning an even more erroneous putsch that will destroy freedom of expression completely. Plans are coming into place for a Chinese style thought control program called the “National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace” which will force every internet user to completely give up their privacy, be labelled, and tracked even further than is usual by the NSA.

    And now we have Democrats proposing trolling media, and internet for “hate speech” which will be defined as whatever they say it is. Folks it’s all about control, control of everything you do, control of what you thing and control of what you say, and the best way for those in power to do that is to have full control over all media outlets, including the internet.

    Political Correctness is out of control

    You might be a racist if you have an American flag, don’t like Mexican food,disagree with Obama policy, but the one 100% guaranteed way to know if you’re a racist is to look in the mirror – if you see a white person looking back at you then you’re a racist – because only white people can be racist. At least this seems to be the general assumption made by the main-stream media andrace-baiters like Al sharpton, who would probably call me a racist because, I own white-leghorn hens or maybe it would be because I own two black giant hens, who knows how he would go, but one thing is certain he would probably find a way to make it racial and the main stream media would be all over it.

    By now, I’m sure, that you’ve heard about the LA clippers owner Donald Sterling and his racist, comments that he made to his girlfriend during what he thought was a private conversation. And while his comments were undoubtedly, racist against blacks, those comments are his personal views and no matter how wrong those comments might be or whom those comments might offend, is he not entitled to his beliefs and to express those beliefs in a “private” conversation?

    Apparently not. At least according to the NBA, the players, the media and fans nationwide. Because of his private (but recorded) comments he has been banned from attending any NBA events, he will have to pay a $2.5 million fine and they are trying to force him to sell his property, which is the L.A. Clippers team.

    While his comments were offensive, and disgusting and he is obviously an elitist prick, should anyone be able ban him from public events, or force him to pay a fine or sell his property for something he said in a private conversation?

    Almost as soon as this story broke the race baiter Al Sharpton was threatening to call for an advertising boycott of the NBA during an interview with TMZ if Sterling was not punished for his speech.

    And who could forget the Paula Dean fiasco…  where she while under oath during a court appearance admitted to using the dreaded “N word” in a private conversation with her husband in the past, resulting in her being fired from the food network, being dropped by sponsors and having her merchandise pulled from store shelves across the nation. All because of something she said 20 years in a private conversation with her husband.

    The list could go on and on, but I don’t want to waste anymore time on this. The race issue is being constantly poked by operatives of the federal government like Al Sharpton to keep racial tensions high and the government controlled main-stream media uses this stuff as a distraction to keep everyone occupied and infighting so we don’t come together and see what is really happening with their corruption, to our country,  to our economy and to our freedom.

    They want to keep us divided alone racial lines so that they can better lie to and control us.

    An entailment mentality

    Sadly, the United states is turning, (some would say it has already turned) from being a nation of producers and working folks to a nation of takers that feel that they are somehow entitled to “free money” for doing nothing but setting an their ass, watching TV, playing video games, drinking, doing drugs and breeding like rabbits, after all the more that they breed and produce the larger their check will get in most cases.

    According to http://www.heritage.org/

    America is increasingly moving away from a nation of self-reliant individuals, where civil society flourishes, toward a nation of individuals less inclined to practicing self-reliance and personal responsibility. Government programs not only crowd out civil society, but too frequently trap individuals and families in long-term dependence, leaving them incapable of escaping their condition for generations to come.

    And according to Statistic Brain there are 12,800,000 Americans on welfare, 46,700,000 on food stamps or SNAP, 5,600,000 on unemployment, with a total government spending on welfare annually (not including food stamps or unemployment) of $131.9 billion. Folks these are the true zombies, that will be clawing at your door when the welfare stops coming and they get tired of waiting for the taxpayer to feed them.

    Foreign companies taking over big business and buying up property in the U.S.

    China and to a lesser extent other nations are buying up business and property in the United States, for example China recently, purchased 90% ownership in AIG’s airplane leasing unit, International Lease Finance Corporation, to a Chinese investor group for approximately $5.28 billion. And according to the same site the Chinese have also bought 80.1 percent of ILFC for approximately $4.23 billion, with an option for an additional 9.9 percent stake. According to its website, ILFC is ‘world’s largest independent aircraft lessor measured by number of owned aircraft.’

    And it’s not only airplanes that the Chinese are interested in – CNBC reportsthat the Chinese are on a buying spree and sweeping up every energy and natural resource in the United States that they can get their hands on. And they’re even buying up and taking control of the U.S. food supply - China’s largest acquisition to date of a U.S. company, Smithfield Foods, is raising among market watchers who question China’s interest in taking possession of one of America’s largest food producers – via CNBC.

    And they’re not stopping there the Chinese are also buying large chunks of land across America, according to Michael Snyder, it the Chinese are on a real estate buying spree all over America…

    Declaring  anyone who doesn’t agree with government policies as having a psychiatric disorder

    Support the U.S. Constitution, or disagree with government policy or the policy makers then you might have a  psychiatric disorder. After all according to B.O. we “wrongheaded” Americans need to just trust the government more and everything will be peaches and cream from then on…

    Obama: “Wrongheaded” Americans Must Trust Government More

    President Obama today said Americans had developed the “wrongheaded” view that Washington won’t look out for them, a fallacy he said was stoked by conservatives and their philosophy that says people are “on their own.”

    Disagree with Al Gore and others on global warming then you probably have a psychiatric disorder, don’t want to join the Borg, then you undoubtedly have a psychiatric disorder because Psychiatrists now say non-conformity is a mental illness. Yep, nothing to see here folks, take your meds, and relax, everything is going to be okay. No more “wrongheaded” Americans allowed, you will be assimilated.

    Folks this is being done for a couple of reasons, number one if they can legally declare you a nutcase  then they can legally and easily, take away your rights, or lock you up and two no one wants to be labeled or considered a crazy person, so most folks will shut-up and keep their thoughts about the government and governmental policy to themselves.

    U.S. national debt at unprecedented levels

    As of May 13 2014 the current national debt stands at 17,518,681,450,890 – yep, that’s a lot of numbers, over seventeen trillion in debt and growing fast. To put it into perspective and to see what a trillion dollars looks like click here. How much longer this spending and adding to the national debt can go on before completely crashing is up for debate, but the world is starting to lose faith in the U.S. dollar and are looking to move away from and out of the U.S. currency.

    When the world (or a couple key countries) lose faith in the U.S. dollar and stop lending to us, because of our massive  growing debt and our out of control currency printing, the U.S. economy will crash. This won’t happen over night, and has in fact been happening for years, but as we are getting closer to “the end” the whole process will be put into overdrive – we can see this starting now with our lenders using  their dollars to buy euros or yen or gold rather than U.S. bonds.

    You see the U.S. dollar is backed by nothing but air and everyone with half a brain knows it – but the fact that many people still view it as having some value, allows you to be able to make purchases with it. But as you can see by the chart below since 1913 the dollar has continually, been decreasing in buying power and will continue to do so… This has been caused mostly by uncontrolled currency printing and increasing debt. For a complete breakdown of how the financial system “works” and is crashing please read  DollarCollapse FAQ’s this is the best and easiest  to understand explanation that I’ve found.

    Dollarpurchasing-power1913-to-2013

    Well there you have it folks – my thoughts and a few explanations of what I think is wrong in America, why we are collapsing as a nation and why I prep.  I could go on forever, and we could get into issues like our failed foreign policy, the three global predator predator nations all fighting for control and to be the leader of the new world order, the corrupt banking system etc… but we will leave that for another day…

      • This article makes it all seem so hopeless, with so many negative things piled on each other and on us every day.

        Do what you can with what you have where you are everyone. Something’s gotta give as we can’t go on like this as a nation.

        • I read an article in the 80′s sometime that was written in the 70′s about a guy who used to be a driver for a group of very wealthy people in Los Angeles. The driver said that these guys were upset at the fact that the middle class has grown so much since ww2 and taken huge chunks out of their profits. There intention was to crush the economy, put these pesky middle class people out of business by importing cheap labor and pushing manufacturing overseas into developing countries until the middle class evaporated. Then they would impose trade restrictions during a war and be in control of everything when the war ended.

            Allow me to offer a reason #17 why the U.S. is going to hell in a hand basket.

            “…What’s happened is that we’ve effectively left behind the Age of Persuasion and ushered in the Age of Confirmation. It sometimes seems the whole world exists to re-affirm our conceptions of it; you can get through days, even weeks, without being at all discomfited, if you know which sites to visit and which channels to watch…”

            The article elaborates better than I can.

              World temps have been basically flat since the late 1990s, the oceans haven’t risen, and we still have the polar icecaps. I think we can finally trash the idea of man-made “global warming.”

              According to the charts presented by the “global warming” people, atmospheric carbon dioxide rises after the temperature rises and lowers after the temperature lowers, not the other way around. The sun heats the earth, and carbon dioxide comes out of solution in the world’s oceans. Mankind’s emissions are a drop in the bucket compared to that.

              We can also get rid of man-made “climate change.” The climate has always been changing. It’s never the same two years in a row. It would be nice if we did have a little bit of global warming, because our gardens would grow better and produce more.

          If I lived in Russia, or India, or elsewhere in Southeast Asia, I would be very concerned about China’s military modernization.

          I live 12,000 miles away from China, all the way across the Pacific Ocean from China. I am not concerned. Especially when they start spending their money buying American Real Estate and businesses.

          Do they buy Russian Real Estate? No.

          The USA has been invaded by Dutch investors, British investors, European investors, Arab investors, Russian investors and Japanese investors.

          Now WE are being invaded by Chinese investors. Whatever happened to those HUGE, scary Japanese banks? British and Dutch Pension Funds?

          The goal of the NWO through the Trilateral Commission has long been to have an elite global investor class of the Uber Rich with interlocking international business interests to mitigate the possibility of war.

          This is why Ukraine has not exploded. No Western Nation wants to shoot itself in the foot. So it’s a strategy that is working pretty well for the Uber Rich.

          Not so much for everyone else. :-(

              China has yet to defeat Japan in the East China Sea. They cannot project any sustained, significant power across the Pacific and it will be a decade before they can.

              China needs natural resources, land, and fresh water for its people. These commodities are available in Asia for the taking. Asia is the path of least resistance. They also need markets for their products and consumers to buy them.

              That would be US, most of all. :-)

                China needs resources but has no need for the US consumer when there are 1.2 billion consumers in China. Out money is only good because we say so at more or less the point of a gun.

                When Bretton Woods collapsed in 1971 it was only a matter of time before the USD looses world reserve currency status. Our economic survival is predicated upon maintaining that status.

                  Yes it is also backed by the most powerful military in the world, bar none. So, that military will have to be destroyed if North America and Europe are to be subservient to another power.

                  The NWO is, at its core, North America, Europe and Japan with a combined population equal to that of China. Moreover the combined economy of the NWO core is much larger than China for now, and with the current valuation of the Yuan.

                  In another ten years China will be an independent economic entity on par with or greater than the Core NWO. By then China will be fully integrated into the world economy and a full partner with the Core NWO; while North America expands via the TPP to include Mexico, Central America and parts of South America in an economic union.

                  Puerto Rico (US Territory)is being positioned to be the next offshore financial hub linking NA, SA, Africa and Europe.

                  While OUR economic survival and prosperity relies upon the dollar as WRC, the UK and Germany made the transition to a status of less than WRC and they are doing fine. So will WE if and when that day arrives. It is a long way away.

                  Yes, all fiat currencies eventually fail. The dollar might very well fail too, or be revalued and backed by metals; or a global central bank might issue a world currency backed by something, or nothing. Its hard to say and no one has those answers yet. Changes are coming but they are a long, long way away.

                  The trends show that despite all of the efforts of the NWO the USD which was 55% of international transactions in 2000 is now at 33% in 2013.

                  “Changes are coming but they are a long, long way away.”

                  Thirteen years and a 40% drop made up by a huge increase in QE (through the front and back door) to replace Treasuries bought previously by nations tends to disagree with your timing predictions. Given another 40% drop puts the USD below 20% of international transactions and considering the nations bailing on the USD that might be a conservative figure and not be 13 years away.

                  The NWO has been so desperate that they have to unleash the US military to make nations (Iraq & Libya) continue to accept it for oil. That is telling.

                  K2: Yes the math does lie. In October of 2012 (?) the USD was used in 87% of global commerce. :-)

                  Personally, I do not see the number, whatever it is, as a big deal because while the percentage of USD transactions might decline as a percentage, the World GDP is expanding, so it might be larger in the number of dollars in the aggregate even as it is declining as a percentage of global trade.

                  I suspect that everyone in the NWO expects the USD transaction percentage to decline as China and India join the global economy. As the TPP expands, it is likely that the dollar would become the currency of choice in Mexico and Columbia, like it is in Panama, and Ecuador.

                  Like wise the Yuan will dominate Asia while the Euro dominates Europe and the Middle East. Petro dollars will lose importance as the world transitions to alt energy now that carbon capacitors will cheaply store wind and solar energy.

                  These events are to be expected in a multi polar world and it doesn’t mean the demise of the dollar, just a change in its use. Eventually I would expect the dollar, Euro, and Yuan to be in everyone’s wallet depending upon where you are in the world; and quantum computers would automatically give you the local currency when you place your debit card into the ATM using your dollar account.

                  Yes Change is coming. Buckle up! :-)

                  For the USD to remain viable without high inflation / devaluation which would be catalyst to abandon it for one of the better managed up and coming currencies its use needs to continuously expand to absorb its increase. Not expanding is declining.
                  Its management sucks and its competition is severe. As I stated we have to literally use force for many nations to use it. You can’t fight everyone and its expensive too. The more USDs you create to fund the empire the more nations desire to leave its grip.

                  Absolutely unsustainable. The use of force to maintain it is proof.

                Let’s not lose sight of the primary problem with “davening.” While Jews’ ritualistic simulated sex with the “goddess” (actually a demon) Shekinah by “davening” is repulsive in itself, the primary problem is Judaism’s worship of false gods. Far from the rabbis’ cover story that Judaism is monotheistic, Judaism is a pagan polytheistic creed complete with reincarnation (gilgul neshamot, gilgul neshamah) and black magic.

                Recall that Egyptian and Babylonian black magic spawned idolatry of the Golden Calf, even to the Israelites worshipping, fornicating with, and sacrificing their children to the demon Moloch (Leviticus 20:3-5, 3 Kings 11:5-33, et al.). No less than in the days of the Israelites (1 Kings 8:8; Malachias 2:8-12), contemporary Judaism retains worship of pagan “strange gods”: Birkat ha-Hammah sun worship (persists even though Ezechiel 8:16-17 specifically damns it as an abomination in the eyes of God), moon worship (kiddish levanah), death curses (pulse d’nura), even the rabbis’ magic skulls:
                http://www.sott.net/articles/show/181975-Rare-Magic-Inscription-on-Human-Skull

              If you can’t “feel” God at all, you might benefit from a PET scan. Those who can’t feel a “God” of any kind are often the same ones who have no real empathy with other people.

Well the real world doesn’t work that way. Simply because it can’t currently be explained by science doesn’t mean it’s something supernatural. Diseases, floods, famines, and earthquakes were all believed to be acts of God. Well science has now proven otherwise in all these cases. We now know the causes of all these things and they can be explained and demonstrated by science. Until Ben Franklin positively proved that lightening was nothing more than electricity, people of his day actually believed that God was angry. Your ‘god of the gaps’ is continually shrinking with each new scientific discovery. To continue to think in magical terms is to say that though you live in the modern world created by thousands of scientific discoveries, psychologically you still live in the jungles with those primitives (Africa and Brasil) who still believe that everything they can’t explain, which is almost everything, comes from something supernatural. Small wonder you’re confused and get angry at people like me who point out the glaring errors in your thinking because you straddle two worlds; the modern one with all of its science and the superstitious one of gods and magic.

                  The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

                  21For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.

                  24Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

                  26Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

                  28Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. 29They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. 32Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.

                  Archivist: It’s Professor Emeritus Higgins to be precise my good fellow. Prayer studies have yielded that prayers are unprovable and unrepeatable in scientific terms and therefor meaningless except to the desperate dolts who cling to their superstitions when they can’t find a rational reason for an occurrence. In your feeble mind you equate a helpful coincidence with a ‘miracle’ from God. This man called you because he somehow knew that you did genealogy work, not because God whispered in his ear and told him just to give you some money. I know, you’ll rationalize this by saying that how God works; in strange and mysterious ways. Apologists such as yourself are always making up things in order to support your beliefs so that they don’t collapse under the weight of rational scrutiny. By the way, if you fancy yourself as some sort of Mensa candidate/member (high IQ), why is it that you got yourself into such a poor financial state in the first place? Oh wait, let me guess; it was God testing you, right! Feelings and coincidences are not proof anything supernatural. If you can’t repeat for someone else then you can’t prove it, and if you can’t prove it then it’s what we call in the academic community pure conjecture, or in more common parlance-BULL SHIT.

It’s unfathomable to me that an arrogant, conceited sociopath like him is allowed to contaminate the youth in our Country with his verbal swill! This is why the Country is becoming more and more leftist by the day. Well, Mr. La-De-Da Professor (Emeritus, no less!), you may be able to impress wet behind the ears college students, but you’re only impressing the rest of us with the fact that the “highly educated” are not necessarily wise or good people.

            Barbara: We are slowly winnowing out all the troglodytes such as you and your children and educating the best and brightest. We’ve been doing it for decades and we now have these highly educated people in all levels of government and business and they are running this country. You hicks and you country cousins will still be allowed to provide the necessary lower level services, that’s why we continue to have junior colleges and trade schools. This country didn’t become great from folks like you with the minimum of education. People like you don’t invent or create anything of any real use or value because you lack the mental capacity for higher education. It takes intelligent people to become doctors, scientists, engineers, and business leaders. As for your sociopath comment, I volunteer at three local charities and probably give more money to others than your entire family. This is hardly the hallmark of a sociopath. But then I can afford to be so generous because I am retired and probably make more than your household does working. I do these things because I actually care about the less fortunate than myself which is more than I can say for all the phony so-called Christians at this site and I’m sure I can include you in this group.

      • Agreed Trekker: Love of God, the family, morality and work ethic are the basic building blocks of this nation. And they have been under systematic attack from parties within the Federal Government since the 1960s if we believe recently releases/found government documents. So it took from then to now to get us into this mess.
        To get out we need to reverse the process:
        1. Be vocal (and loving) about public praise for God. Call all Christians back to their Father.
        2. Take steps to create strong family bonds within each family and extended family. That means spending time together doing things that do not involve TV. Talk to your kids and get then looking to you for support, information, opinions and wisdom rather than the “school” or media or friends. Redefine what is “cool”. And reach out to your kids friends and their parents. Get them on board with the new/old family time system.
        3. Politely but firmly refuse to accept immoral behavior or media in your life. Write to companies that advertise during your favorite TV/radio shows ( or your kids shows) and remind them what is acceptable to family values and what is NOT. Especially write to all advertisers when a show is out of line even a bit. As we have seen in the past decade if they can take an inch they will keep inching further into unacceptable areas. Do not demand change. Just state your values and that you will not watch shows/ media/ music that is not compliant with family values. And you will not buy from companies that support it! And then do turn it off if it is out of compliance. And do not buy products from those companies.
        4. Be the example that you want your family to follow by exhibiting a good work ethic. Encourage your family and friends to work together on some tasks and then enjoy the company and the result of a job done faster and with more fun. Praise all those who join in and give them ownership of what was completed. Teach them the cowboy/farmer way: You do what needs to be done and you rest when it is completed, not before.
        5. If we want a stronger nation we must do the work: praise God every day, thank God every day, ask for His blessing and protection on this nation every day and give something to God or another in Gods name ( a helping hand, a generous act, an extra tithe etc) as your part of this project.

      • Tucker says:

        I’d like to ask Mountain Trekker a question.

        If the Christian GOD is so all-powerful, then I’d like for you to help me understand why He has stood by and allowed Satan and his kids (we know who they are, right?) to make such incredible, and seemingly irreversible, unstoppable progress in advancing every one of the diabolically evil nation and culture destroying items cited by this very somber sounding article? I mean, for crying out loud, pal.

        Can you or anyone else cite for me even a single significant, lasting victory that has been chalked up by the rational, decent, reasonably moral, conservative community – which is the demographic group most likely to be bible thumpers? If you are really desperate, you might be tempted to cite the Duck Dynasty incident – but, in reality, did that really slow down or impede the homosexual, lesbian Perversity tsunami even a tiny bit? Not that I can tell from observing the news.

        When I was reading this article, does anyone care to guess what I was thinking about? The Joe Biden speech last year, where that greasy slab of despicable liberal excrement stood before an audience consisting of jews and this mentally deranged, jew testicle licking ass-wipe had the amazing gall to PRAISE these nation wrecking termites for being the PRIMARY promoters of just about every negative item cited by the author of this article.

        Anyone need a refresher?

        [ Begin quote ]

        “Joe Biden, the Vice President of the United State praised American Jews for playing leading roles in the fight for homosexual marriage, open borders, feminism, “social justice,” and more. Biden said that Jews were one of the biggest factors, if not the single biggest, driving social change in the United States.

        Speaking at the Jewish Heritage Month reception of the Democratic National Committee, Joe Biden credited Jewish people in Hollywood for changing the culture of America. He said Jews are responsible for 85% of America’s changing attitude on homosexual marriage. “Think — behind of all that, I bet you 85 percent of those changes, whether it’s in Hollywood or social media, are a consequence of Jewish leaders in the industry.”
        “Jewish heritage has shaped who we are – all of us, us, me – as much or more than any other factor in the last 223 years. And that’s a fact,” said Biden.

        Joe Biden also credited Jews with playing a major role in the feminist movement and changing America’s immigration policies to allow for massive third world immigration. Biden also praised Jews for playing a leading role in getting the Civil Rights Acts passed that mandated affirmative action policies and special privileges for minorities.

        Speaking on Jewish political power, Biden stated ”the Jewish people have contributed greatly to America. No group has had such an outsized influence per capita as all of you standing before you, and all of those who went before me and all of those who went before you.””

        [ end quote ]

        So, essentially, we have a maggot infected particle of human excrement sitting in the Vice President’s chair who has orgasms on stage while praising the termites who are destroying the USA. Oh, and with regards to the war being waged against what remains of the old White Christian America?

        Let’s hear the words of another hate filled, racist jew:

        “CNN featured the extremist Tim Wise, who last year called on his followers to murder members of the TEA Party. Tim Wise, who is Jewish, says that Jesus Christ is a symbol of “white supremacy” and “genocide.” Wise stated “The image of a white Jesus has been used to justify enslavement, conquest, colonialism, the genocide of indigenous peoples. There are literally millions of human beings whose lives have been snuffed out by people who conquered under the banner of a white god.””

        So, Mountain Trekker. Please explain why Satan and his evil kids are steamrolling this nation over into the dustbin of history, and Jesus isn’t lifting so much as a pinky finger to help stop it?

        I mean, after all. Are we to believe that the millions of people, mostly White European Americans – who are practicing Christians haven’t been praying their asses off to Him? So why hasn’t He been listening to his people and offering them a helping hand to save this rapidly decomposing turd dump of a once great nation?

        You know, I see a lot of debating going on about whether Jesus was a jew or whether he was a Judean from Galilee and I really don’t know which of these arguments that I agree with. But, it does occur to me that if the first claim is true – maybe that is the reason why Jesus hasn’t lifted a finger to help save this nation. Maybe He agrees with the Cultural Marxist agenda to destroy America?

        I mean, we really need to think deeply about this question. Based on the unbelievable progress of the nation wrecking termites, it sure as heck looks to me like the Big Guy in the Sky wants to pull the plug on America.

        Which kinda means, he ain’t our friend or ally, does it not?

        After all, does it really make good sense for us to use a book that was written for us by the very same tribe of devils who, in Joe Biden’s own words, “No group has had such an outsized influence per capita as all of you standing before you, and all of those who went before me and all of those who went before you.” ?

        Has following their advice and allowing them to advance their agenda been helpful or destructive to the traditional America that most of us on this website love and treasure so passionately?

        Hint: If it takes you longer than 3 seconds to answer that last question, then you’re beyond salvation.

            You’re avoiding answering my question. When there are probably millions of Christians praying every day to their hero Jesus, and asking him for his help in saving their nation from the destruction that the forces of evil (liberalism, Cultural Marxism, Joe Biden’s objects of worship, etc.)are foisting upon it – I am asking for anyone to explain to me why all of those prayers are not being answered?

            Am I to believe that Jesus is refusing to step in until he has 100 percent of all Americans praying their butts off, and that he isn’t satisfied that he doesn’t have 100 percent participation?

            Or, are you insinuating that Jesus expects individual Americans to rise up and smite these forces of evil who are causing the death of our nation?

            BTW: The fact that my perfectly reasonable earlier comment got so many thumbs down that it was blocked from regular view tells me that there must be a dangerously large number of visitors to this website who are uncomfortable with the idea of critical thinking. Now, more than ever before in the history of this nation, critical thinking and hindsight are vitally important to any pursuit of a solution to save what’s left of White Western Civilization. Instead, people would rather plug their fingers in their ears, stomp their feet, and shove their heads into a hole in the ground and refuse to think critically about the situation we find ourselves in?

            That, my friends, is formula guaranteed to finish killing off this nation.

        • PWYPreach says:

          Interesting that you use the word “salvation,” a Biblical term. It sounds as though you want hard, concrete proof as to why evil is allowed to exist.

          Think of it as having a Constitutional Republic v Communism.

          Constitutional Republic: Officials are elected as representatives of the people, and must govern according to existing constitutional law that limits the government’s power over the people.

          Communism: “A system of government in which the state plans and controls the economy and a single, often authoritarian party holds power, claiming to make progress toward a higher social order in which all goods are equally shared by the people.” (Wordnik)

          The difference between the two is about CHOICE:

          Constitutional Republic allows for self-determination as long as the constitutional laws are followed, with its legacy of limited government intrusion.

          Communists demand that you do something that enrich themselves (but not you) in some way..whether it is relocating you to collectives, where they will reap all that you sow, or in our case, things such as FORCING you to feed your children x, y and z, even though it is genetically modified and unhealthy, because they “know” better than you do how you should raise your child, and if you don’t comply exactly, they will take your children away from you, and taxing you beyond your ability to endure so that they can benefit.

          So Satan DEMANDS you to do things that are destructive to yourself for his own aggrandizement, which will lead you to some seriously rotten consequences. He wants to call the shots….he leads you down the path with pretty promises until you are destroyed.

          God offers you a choice of self-determination as long as you follow the “constitutional laws.” It is truly: What you “sow” = what you “reap.”

          At one time, Americans did “pray their asses off”…but they don’t anymore. Do you see the correlation between the way things were and the way things are now?

          People don’t seem to pray UNTIL the shit hits the fan because they get cocky, complacent, and start thinking, “Hey, I can do this myself…I don’t need Him.” But when the shit hits the fan, humility sets in and that’s when you hear their voices pouring forth unto the heavens.

          To summarize, what people don’t seem to understand is that God operates on the principle of “FREE AGENCY” … choice. Satan only operates on the law of forced rule and destruction because he is one pissed-off being who is seriously upset that he can’t run the show.

          Our existence on this planet may seem scary and unfair if these few years are ALL there is or ever could be….but it’s not.

          And just because somebody else is evil, you DON’T have to follow the pack.

          REMEMBER: Satan isn’t interested in going after evil people…he’s already got them.

          Modern Christianity, if there is such a thing, would be unrecognizable to Jesus. It is a control mechanism, replete with jewish fables, mythology, astrology, paganism, idol worship and veiled occult sciences. Only a small percentage of so called christians recognize this fact and practice the faith accordingly in the modern world. It is a vehicle utilized to control and facilitate oppression by those in control. King James VERSION??????The version of a incestuous homosexual psychopathic murderer. How about a Charles Manson Version, or a Attila the Hun Version. Study the bible in Aramiac, or Hebrew…..its a different story.

My role in life should be to introduce “everyone” to Christ. But it’s up to each person to make the final decision.

              Nations that did do better after going badly in same ways todays usa is…Yes they too prayed…but Then after they prayed, they acted…By Booting OUT that Satanic Synagouge of the devils children Christ Warned us about as did the apostles writtings also warn us of.

              And Thats when other nations returned to peace/safty/prosperity…AFTER they Booted OUT the eternal nation Wreckers of that evil synagouge of Satan.

              Who call themselves jews but are Imposters as Per Jesus in Rev 2:9 and 3:9 and John 8:44….That JOE BIDEN, In Tuckers Posting has proven by his abject Praise of all the evils afecting todays america, while all the JEWS at that Gathering went wild with self adulation applause, everytime Biden added Another satanic EVIL to that LONG List that Biden Praised jews for causeing to happen in america!…Yeah just collapse Tuckers Post so nobodys offended especially them evil satanic jews right folks?

              That phony mandate so many today believe in and so promote of “God mandates that you Bless the jews” is based on that blessing to abraham and his “seed”.

              Preachers like john hagee, pat robertson, jerry falwell et al teach that verse IS Gods mandate to bless every jew that ever lived or is yet to be born. Due to that one word of “seed” of abraham.

              But in order to believe such nonsense one Must fully and totally Ignore Paul in the book of Galatians, where he spells it out specifically and says that “SEED” word IN that Old testement promice to abraham means that the SEED was refering TO Christ and NOT to jews.

              Why do so many christians ignore that Paul teaching?

              Because they also still trust and believe Everything ever taught by Jew run Hollywood WWII movies, and all of MSM’s TV, newspapers etc constant never ending promotions of the fabled number of “six million Holyhoax jews”.

              Even though tons of formerly sealed secret WWII Documents by the Millions of Pages now has been finally exposed and revealed Publically. No the typical MSM TV news or history channels wont ever show or tell you of this…You CAN find it on Your own though and finally prove to self that YES Most we were told of jews and WWII and a whole lots of Other stuff has been Fabricated Lies, Fables Myths and also inventions of and Run by jews.

              Everybody today can SEE with both eyes open that we who complain that every TV news show contains a massive disproportionate amount of jews compared to their less than 2% general population is FACT and TRUE.

              Yet everytime we post that info it is red thumbed down to “Hide” that post. Hide the Truth eh…What bible verse was That where Christ says to reject such factual truths and HIDE it from others?

              Face facts americas biggest problem of why we cannot fix america is due to an overwhelming number of mainly White christian folks today that number aprox 60 Million now.

              Who are deluded by False preachermen like Hagee et al. Whos delusionas cause that Large group to be what MSM calls “Christian Right” which is in cahoots with repub NEOCONS that do the jewish satanic biddings even More so than Joe Bidden does!

              Admit it finally. Those of that 60 million that call themselves the oxymornic name of “jewdeo-christians” and/or “zionist christians” cannot locate enough jewish ass to kiss daily!….Thinking that God is going to Mightly Bless them for such profound abject jew worship…All while they completely Ignore every word Christ and apostles said and warned us all about concerning the synagouge of satan jews.

              Then they “Wonder” why/when is God finally going to bless or fix america?!!……Would YOU if You were Him and viewing 60 Million Shabezz Goyim whiteys in action daily rejecting His Only Sons warnings constantly?

              If we Ought to Obey God rather than Men…Should we also not Learn From God rather than swindlers and scammers that Lust for money enough to sell out america and YOU to that synagouge of satan, like Hagee and so many pastors today like him are doing?…Yet 60 Million american christians live or die based on haggees and his fellow preacher Ilk’s daily marching orders to bless and worship them jews who can never do wrong. And even when jews do, do wrong or evils….Thats ok just pretend its all Good as long as its jews did it…

              Because That God whos NOT a respector of persons, OR groups of them, is racially more loving and more concerned for those who His own Son Christ Condemend again and again…Jews.

              Hagee even has those 60 million believing when Christ says He is the Only path to salvation for ALL the worlds peoples….That Christ means ALL…BUT jews! and Most so called christians Here at SHTF also agree and believe that way!…..Gee I wonder why america aint fixed yet when we has 60 million, aka 1/3rd of whites Praiseing daily the worlds worst nation Wrecker tribe ever historically known of and proven historically to be such wreckers. How many of You even checked yet what Their Talmud teaches the jews about YOU christians?

              Maybe Thats good place to start eh!…Find Out what them Talmudics really say and believe about YOU whitey christians, so eager to praise, bless and worship that synagouge of Satan while expecting Prayers to fix america to be done!…

              Even jew run Hollywood cannot make up such a fantasy Fable!….Maybe that 60 Million jewdeo christio fools, too damn stuborn to consider maybe They are radically wrong on jew issues etc, is causeing God to Chastize them and ergo it also affects all of america when their group numbers so hugely a part of america perhaps eh…

              Remember…Christianity Has an 2000 year long Massive History behind itself….And NEVER before untill Recent times have we ever seen such profound falsehood teachings regarding these jewish issues eh…Why do You think That is the case eh?….All a sudden a brand NEW teachings occureing by a bunch of money grubber TV megga church pastors, never prior taught, exact Opposite of all that christians ever taught or believed, and That is somehow Better Truth now?…Whys that?…Hows That possible?

              And the same NON answering ones to tuckers questions will likly also side step and dance around all of My questions too I rekon….Yep americas got great hopes for a good “RE-SET” huh folks?!!

              Maybe we can ALL vote for those 60 million delusional white jewdeo christo zios to be our New leadership once we achieve that good Re set event…They can bring aboard to Rule Over us all, such illustrious jews like Bloomberg!…Boxer!

          Here’s my take on that, Tucker:

          The only thing that is NOT part of Creation is God Himself. God gave EVERYONE in Creation free will, even Demons and Angels. Lucifer himself is part of Creation.

          FREE WILL means God does not interfere with our choices. This means if we want to destroy ourselves and give up our place in His Kingdom, then so be it. It is our choice and WE are responsible for the consequences of that choice.

          Man has been born into slavery for generations. None of us who live today, can even remember a time when we were TRULY and utterly “free” of all government but God.

          Evil men have just as much free will as the Righteous. The difference is in the choices that are made.

          We live and die by our own hand and only when our life is over here, do we receive our due for those choices we abused.

          That’s my take on why God “allows” evil to happen to good people. It’s called “trial by fire”…and boy, are we walking on red-hot coals right now.

          Tucker,
          It isn’t a competition between “this god” and “that god over there”. It’s not luchadores in stretchy pants and masks like in “Nacho Libre”.

          God = God. It’s a tautology, which doesn’t add much to your knowledge, so consider this. God is that which, as Archivist pointed out above, created that big ball of matter and energy that blew out to the corners of space-time. After that, the nature of the raw materials resulted in lots of local collections of matter and energy in space-time, which eventually yielded amino acids in free water, and lately, the multifarious life-forms that are observed or hunted by a certain self-aware species called “Homo sapiens”.

          Unfortunately, we walked away from God at some point, so Christ God the Divine Logos, the visible sum of all things that are in God in eternity, became a man and veiled Himself in the Kenosis so that He could talk to us without burning us up.

          Now that God has saved us through the means of the Incarnation, we have “eternal” life now and outside of the procession of moments in time, and not just temporal and phenomenal life.

          The “lasting victory” you referred to is already won, even if Joe Biden becomes King of the World and the USA falls into ruins and the ocean floods us to the tip-top of every “Fourteener” in Colorado.

          Our faith is invested in eternity, not in anything temporal.

          God

      DHS recently reported that a major utility was hacked but it remained operational.

      One attack was a brute force attack where hackers run through passwords until they find one that works. Why did critical equipment have such poor encryption?

      There was a second attack but they have not released many details about how that occurred other than to say there were no serious consequences.

        • Remote control via the internet allows utilities to easily and efficiently monitor and control substations and switching equipment from a central location. Less people; lower cost energy. If the internet goes down they still have dedicated land lines for backup communications. But when the San Jose, CA substation was attacked in 2013, they first took out underground AT&T communications equipment down the road by cutting fiber optics and land lines.
          It gets worse. Smart Meters are slowly but surely being installed all over the US on millions of households. These meters can and will be controlled via the internet/cellphone system. Individual meters can be shut off for any number of reasons, from non-payment to avoiding a widespread blackout (a process called load shedding).
          It gets even worse. Most new appliances now incorporate computer devices in their design. The latest generation is able to be monitored and controlled remotely. Have you seen the ads for the new Smart Thermostats that you can control through your cellphone? Guess what? The utilities will also have access. These appliances are able to communicate with your Smart Meter via the house wiring or by wireless technology.
          This is folks should consider a backup system that does not depend on the grid.

            But it was hard to HATE Bush the way people hate Obama. Perhaps it’s because he was such a goofus; you couldn’t stop laughing at him long enough to hate him. Molly Ivins was very liberal, and she disagreed with Bush on most everything, saying once that “Personally, I think he’s further evidence that the Great Scriptwriter in the sky has an overdeveloped sense of irony.”

        This is an excerpt from a comment in response to the “Russia Test-Fires Nuclear Missile Article” on zerohedge last night.

        THE SWISS CONNECTION
        Every Swiss home, from the mountain to the valley, protects the occupants from blast and radiation and chemical, biological, and radiological agents.

        GRID DOWN! NO WATER!

        “Using Water Resources” is vital information for those who desire to keep drinking water and growing food.
        http://rockymountaincorn.com/blogs/the-tool-shed

        The document “Technical Directives for the Construction of Private Air Raid Shelters and the 1971 Conception of the Swiss Civil Defense” contains pre-engineered plans that would allow a competent do-it-yourself person to construct a safe home shelter. Of course if your pockets are deep enough, you can hire custom designs and construction or take your chance with an off-the-shelf bunker that may or may not work.

        Why should we concern ouselves with blast and radiation shelters? I assure you that our .gov politicians in D.C. and in every state capitol have a seat in a shelter. If our leaders are protected why not us? Do they know something we don’t?

        The scientists who designed the bombs also knew how to protect against them. There is a substantial literature on the subject.

        For all who are new to this discussion and for all who may read this comment, please purchase a copy of “Nuclear War Survival Skills” by Cresson Kearney. The 1987 Expanded Edition with a Forward by Edward Teller is best. It has a bright green cover. You can inspect an on-line edition here:

      • I saw a pretty good idea for a quick and complete shelter:
        A guy had a “basement” dug and poured on 3 sides and the floor. He then drove an RV into it and poured the 4th side and the ceiling. That was waterproofed and covered with dirt. Yes the “basement” cost about $10,000 for all work done but the RV provided all the daily living amenities in one quick unit. And it only took up half the “basement”.
        The owner was working on solar panels topside and an air flow/filter unit. But he quickly and relatively cheaply had a bunker. Many of the basic bunkers cost far more.

        A variation of this would be to gut an RV and use the parts but then your have to gut and re-assemble all the parts, wiring and plumbing etc. My only problem is the propane pollution in a closed environment. I would prefer all electric but then you have issues there also. Still it is a creative idea and with a few people working together the technical issues could be solved I think.
        Two neighbors who each build a similar unit could sink a 40 foot cargo container between the 2 basements as a connecting walkway. That is way out of my league but I am sure some of you out there could do it.

              • That’s because the one they buried was a composite type , not completely steel
                The steel ones can be reinforced internally to accept the load , the composite ones would be more involved and not worth the investment
                Go back and listen to what is said on that program by Adam
                And look at the container that was collapsing
                It wasn’t a full steel container

                • Also
                  on the Steel ones, it depends on how deep you go, and how much earth you stack on top.

                  One thing nice about the full steel containers is, you can always reinforce with additional steel supports , a grid work of internal or attached external steel will greatly improve its external loading capabilities in order to go deep and load more earth on top

                  you can also mitigate the loading by building a grid steel work around the container pouring a concrete cap slightly above the container and letting the concrete take the top load..options are endless if you think outside the container (box) , or have an engineering degree ;-)

                  Opsec , will only allow me to go this far with this conversation

                  The ones i saw buried had a structural slab poured over them, so once cured the loads were taken up by the grade beams in the slab, and i believe they did some poured fill at a few places along the length of the containers to act as columns under the grade beams and to prevent too much of a load on the walls of the container. That corrugated steel they use is pretty strong stuff though.
                  Good point though, the other thing is corrosion.

              Kula, shipping containers are not designed to be buried. The top loading will compress them. Your culverts are designed to be buried. Talk to an engineer about the conexes, see what depth you can get away with, and heed that advice. It’s not very deep, less than three feet. You have to add the weight of water to the calculation, up to 100% soil saturation, as well.

              Best thing to do is use reinforced concrete. It costs money, but cheaping out can be a killer.

      I don’t know what to do. I’m ready to go in full force if we could do it. Why are we letting these mob people control us why we work and they steal all we have. This is not freedom or America. We have to do something. Remember too Never stop at a roadblock in a crisis or ride alone if you have weapons, they will strip them and your going to be detained until they decide you are free to go. We have to fight back people. Make sure you have clutter in all your home entrances to protect you with some time to arm yourself from rouge police. Buy a plate carrier for less than 100 bucks and ar-500 steel plates for about 120 bucks online unpainted. I tested them against all my rounds. I tried them with green tip batch of ar-15 rounds from the early 90′s and also with the new batch. Some of the new ones do not have the steel core and are basically just lead. They do stop both just to let you know. I tried them with my 338 laupa and of course they did not stop them but was a hell of a fight. Be ready and get into shape, do some short quick sprints for quick exits if its possible. Tannerite 5lb range does a great job for lots of fun cant say it. And yes it can be ignited without a high powered bullet.

      Back in the old days people used to take black poweder in a tight tube and run a wire to it with a resister from radioshack and run currrent which would overheat the circuit and make a flame which would ignite the blackpoweder for a fireworks display show to blow up rocks so they could clear roads for railways or a road. That was hard work back in those days and was dangerous work. I guess these didnt have radioshack back then. lol But that used to be the ways of the west. I think you got my point. We need America back and good hard workers and honest people. It’s depressing to see people not happy. We all could be happy if it wasnt for greed and money,. I guess the bible is right about corruption and greed. So whats going to happen a miracle or a revolution by the people because we are at that point. How long do you guys think before people lose it????

            So says Mike:

            “I spent many, many years trying all the usual things. Arguments of law, history, common sense. Resort to the ballot box. Heck, I still do that today. But I came to the realization, probably because I used to be a collectivist myself, that such people would not ultimately be persuaded by argument but only would be deterred by credible threats of countervailing force, and by the absolute certainty that the Three Percent represents an irreducible determined minority that cannot be intimidated, cannot be persuaded, but only killed. By our defiance, we force those who evince an appetite for our liberty, our property and our lives to consider the personal costs to themselves of those tyrannical compulsions. Believe me, it is the only language they truly understand.”

      All kidding aside no societal avenue looks good, we each individually and internally sift through the news of the day and arrive at conclusions. I’m currently operating on Oct, Nov 2014 my thought is that people are becoming aware that things just aren’t right, anyone even slightly conscious can feel it in the air.

      I’m less concerned at this point how it all goes down, I’m far more concerned about the aftermath. The fact is people in this country are going to go bat shit crazy, ensure you have a plan, preps and a network of people, survive the first month and you’ve got a better then good chance…unless of course you’re in a FEMA camp.

      One of the major problems today is religion, people have become complacent because of religion, now that they have someone who can save their sorry asses and they only have to believe, doesn’t require any action in life, who would worry about anything if you was going to be raptured and you have been taught that you should be a pacifist and just wait on the rapture, suffer all things by those criminals who rule over you and let Jesus take care if it when he comes. Well your first mistake is that Jesus ain’t coming to clean up the mess that so called Christians have made, second, there won’t be a rapture.

      Religion is a tool and has been used to brainwash the so called sheep into complacency and pacifism. Money is the other tool that has been used to control the sheep, but another big one is that you think you have power in your vote, your vote has always been worthless, you just didn’t understand that your leaders serve the rich elite of this world and not dumb sheep and they aren’t going to let those sheep run their business, but in believing that you have power you followed along just like you did in religion and now have a false hope in religion and your assumed power of the vote, all the while your country has been destroyed right under your noses by your leaders, corporations, banking and religion who have no allegiance to anything but themselves. America is fastly becoming a third world shithole of crime, filth, and disease, and guess what you allowed it all, voted for it, and supported it with your dollars, and now that the dumb sheep is finally waking up you cry foul but its too little too late, your govt is preparing for an insurrection and riots according to a recent pentagon analyst. All agencies of the govt is preparing for a revolution, civil, race war that they know is coming and have known for years and have been preparing for it, they now have the means to control you and you will see more and more tyranny as the dumb sheep begin to wake. You have supported the enemies of America, with your vote and your money, you as Americans have sold each other out for a job and a few dollars and a retirement that you think you are going to get but it is going up in smoke soon. I really don’t think you American are ready for the reality of what you have done and allowed in this country and what the consequences of what you have done is going to do to the people and your own country. The police are not peace officers any more, many have an attitude of tyrants, abusive, overbearing, egotistical, and many don’t hesitate to use violence even when and where it isn’t needed, just cause they can and they know their fellow officers and courts will support them for the most part. Don’t get me wrong there are good cops out there and I support them, but too many of the wrong kind are wearing uniforms and carrying guns that should be working a garbage detail someplace. And as for the military while America was being destroyed right here at home many of the military were fighting for someone else’s supposed freedom some other place in the world, destroying countries, people, so the almighty leaders of this world can have their way and the corporations and banking cabal could get richer. The bankers of the country and wall street have robbed the country and your leaders have helped them and soon all that you have worked for will be gone. The bottom line is americans have been fools and now you are going to have to pay the piper, and the bigger part will pay with their life, and when the dust settles and the smoke clears, there may only be ten to twenty five percent left alive in this country. At this point after years of trying to wake the dead, personally im few up with religious fanatics, newagers, and liberals and even so called conservatives who have destroyed our country, so im taking my dog out of this fight, America as I have known it is over and will never be again just like others before it, the handwriting has been on the wall for America and americans for a long time. This going to be my last post ever on the net, i’m tired of the bullshit of people who have no clue what they are doing or what they are saying and will die with their false belief systems that have destroyed everything around them, for me its finished I have fought long enough for fools and idiots who will never learn, fight your own battles i’m out, and before you start giving me shit, you should know that you are the real traitors.

      This article might have had more credibility if it had been adequately edited for spelling errors, vulgarity and grammar.

      Aside from that, I dispute the contention that China has overtaken the U.S. economically, and even further, that they could surpass our military within the next 10 years.

      Few U.S. businessmen take China’s economic statistics seriously, simply because many of them are made up. Contracts mean nothing in China and it is not uncommon for a contract to be abrogated before the ink is dry. No one really knows what China’s economic strength/weakness is, so it is foolish to claim that they have overtaken us. And to think that a third world, fully and longtime communist system could overtake us, even WITH Obama in the White House, is, in my opinion, just a clever attempt at propaganda.

      China’s propaganda machine loves to push, aggressively, the line that China is the this, the that, and the other in the world. You hear it even in U.S. high school classes on elementary Chinese taught by local Chinese residents. It’s all propaganda. Period.

      Could we please have more fact-based articles instead of opinion pieces?

      And to encourage people to take some type of action on an urgent basis without much fact to support the encouragement smacks, to me, of manipulation. Manipulation toward what, I don’t know, but I do know that a number of the survivalist businesses are advertising price reductions to spur sales, which indicates to me that business has fallen off.

      But don’t waste my time with sub-par writing based to a certain extent on derived opinion.

      The US has been in a slow decay for the past two decades at least. It seems to be the country has to be thought more of islands of prosperity and dynamism – world-beating in fact – surrounded by an ocean of depression and failure. It seems as if the parts of the US that saw the opportunities in the global economy are thriving, while those slow to wake up to how the world has changed just got lost in the shuffle.

      It is perplexing for foreigners to watch because the US is still clearly very wealthy and very powerful. Bases are opening up all over the world and there are drones and spy devices everywhere. The US security apparatus is very generously funded and thriving. You always know a US base because it has the best equipment and is very modern and luxurious. It is hard to square that with the sad sacks back in the US wandering around in a zombie daze in the ghettos and sprawling urban poverty centers. There now seem to be two Americans: the global Americans, who are fit, extremely smart, well dressed, good looking, well educated and well traveled, and the dumb-f#ck Americans, who are fat, lazy, badly dressed, ugly, and seem to be failing on a grand scale.

      them guy I believe you arr one of the few who really gets it.

      Financial Control: The Jewish-owned Federal Reserve Bank which is neither “federal” nor has any “reserves,” has as its Chairman & Vice Chairman, the Zionist Jews, Ben Shalom Bernanke & Donold L Kohn. The Zionist Jew, Randall S Krozner, is also on the 5 member Board of Governors.

      To protect Americans from Jewish bankers, the framers of the Constitution specifically stated in Article I-Section 8, “Congress shall have power to coin money and regulate the value thereof, and of foreign coin.”

      Through intense Zionist intrigues, bribes, threats, and intimidation, Congress handed over the power to coin money to the Federal Reserve System, a consortium of Jewish banks controlled by the Rothschild Dynasty. This was effected through the Federal Reserve Act Of 1913.

      The Federal Reserve Act Of 1913 marked the end of American sovereignty by sinking America into eternal debt. “The present day parasitic control of the gentile host,” points out historian Eustace Mullins in an exclusive Rense.com Interview, “depends largely upon the Jewish monetary system of private money issued by Jewish banks and bearing interest so as to enslave the debtor.”

      The TSA has issued a solicitation requesting 24 million rounds of .357 SIG “duty ammunition” over a five year period, prompting fresh questions as to whether the federal agency is planning to arm its workers.

      “Estimated quantity is approximately 4,800,000 rounds of .357 Sig duty ammunition per year, totaling 24,000,000 over the life of the contract,” states the solicitation, posted on Fed Biz Opps, which adds that the ammo is for use at “DHS component locations
      nationwide.”

      DHS component locations nationwide. IMHO checkpoints, roadblocks, detention camp reception centers, etc.

      Another noteworthy aspect to the story is that the Department of Homeland Security has stopped referring to such ammunition as “hollow point,” and is now referring to it as “duty” ammunition.

      Indeed. The noose tightens just a little bit more.

      NOMI

      KySSG . . . out.

      They destroyed the Dollar in order to finance the expansion of the Globalist Empire. Then they destroyed the demographic integrity of our country and Europe in order to bring down the cost of labor. These two things are probably not fixable. Is it a coincidence that this was also the plan of European communists back in 1930? I think not.

        The populations within the developed nations did not want to loose their industrial capacity but did.

        I don’t think there is a country on the earth of any size in which “The People” truly control their government. I’m of the mindset that a citizen in the US has an insignificantly greater amount of control over their government than a citizen in the USSR had in 1970. The difference is we can (for now) complain but in the end TPTB do what they want anyway.

        You got it in one. The idea is to make a global government where are all are equal and earn the same amount – all ruled by a small elite at the top of the corporations and government. It is the British Empire model: they ran the entire empire on a few thousand civil servants. The day-to-day running of things was done by colonials who got their orders from London. That’s the model: as an American might say, “That bitch done work!”

        When they are ready, they will flush the dollar down the crapper and wipe their asses with the US Constitution. From that flush will rise the SDR currency basket. The control grid will be used to lock everyone down during the transition. This will last no more than six months and then the whole re-set will happen and the global economy re-booted. All digital currencies only for trade. Each transaction will extract a tithe or tax sent directly to the government. Nothing will be allowed to happen without the government making money from it. By 2017, things will be the New World and a new generation will be getting used to it. By 2025, the old world will have been forgotten by the majority of the world’s population (remember, most of the world is in the developing countries and their populations skew young so they unlearn things very quickly: wisdom is in short supply and the world of the early 2000s will be wiped clean from the Great Servers of the Internet). Few will remember, few will care: not when there is an orgy to go to tonight or a hit of crystal meth to take.

      Obama this, Obama that. Cowardly to beat up on the playground weakling. To wit, invoke the name of the somewhat-elected globalist whose greatest hits include: 2 failed wars costing over 4-5 trillion dollars collectively, the Department of Homeland Security (a massive bureaucracy designed to prevent The Boston Bombings from happening), America’s Gestapo – The TSA, and not least of all, the near repeal of the 4th Ammendment: The Patriot Act. Can I help? George W. Bush. While on the subject add: massive data collection, drone killings, awareness wiretaps, permanent war footing. Welcome the the New American Security State!

      You are wrong about a government-controlled media. I know Rush likes to use this phrase a lot, but the media is controlled by large corporations, not the government.

      Corporations turned news into entertainment to keep us stupid. They get their revenue from ads, so they’re not going to run a news item that upsets advertisers. They make billions off of political ads, so they encourage “discussions” from both Republicans and Democrats–if they focus on opinions and arguments then you’ll never know the real facts.

      Entitlements: Instead of focusing on the poor, why aren’t you complaining about the tax breaks given big corporations? I don’t hear you bitching about ExxonMobile, which had a $5 billion profit, didn’t pay a penny in Federal income tax–and we gave it a refund to boot. The top 65 American companies paid between 8% and 10% in income tax while the rest of us peasants paid closer to 25%. And Congress still refuses to stop giving tax credits to companies that outsource.

      I don’t know how close we are to the end, but America has been sliding into Third World status for years and things can only get worse.

        Check out the governmental flow chart at Zero Hedge.

        Fascists are in control at the top and they’re using communism to control the masses at the bottom. We have the power structure as officially defined and the power structure as it really is. Both co-exist.

      Agree with some of what you said. A few parts come across as crazed myopic right wing ranting, especially the part about the ‘traditional family unit.’ A gay couple can love and raise a perfectly normal upstanding moral person just as much as a man and woman can. How do I know this? Because I’ve seen it.

      You may not understand it, but that doesn’t mean it’s ‘wrong’ or ‘immoral.’

      Your parts about the corrupt political system, the militarization of police, a breakdown in constitutional rights, and the school system are spot on however.

      Forget about bringing slingshots and knives to school. I remember bringing my .22 rifle to school so I could participate in an after-school shooting program that the US Army put on for kids. My Dad was a soldier at the time and thought this a good idea. I did too, winning several medals and patches for my jacket for the shooting skills that I developed via this program. I have been a good shot with rifles, shotguns, and pistols all my life and not one did I have the slightest interest in shooting at anything that didn’t need shooting. What we are seeing today is nothing short of the complete wussification of the American male by wussies pretending to be concerned moms and other do nothings who have nothing better to do than rain on other people’s parades. If they keep this up and the SHTF, who will save their worthless butts from those who are aggressive, hostile, and could not care less about their rights? Not me. I have had it with these a**holes. They are on their own from here on out.
