    2014: We Have the Target Date

    Ever since the crisis of 2008 Americans have been asking ‘when will we finally get back to normal?’

    We now have a target date.

    Forget the green shoots of 2009, or the real estate recovery of 2010, the resurgence of minimum wage jobs in 2011, or the stock market records of 2012 and 2013.

    None of those really made a difference for Americans on the ground.

    2014. That’s the new target date.

    CNN reports that’s when things are going to get better according to a growing consensus of well respected economists.

    But next year, economists foresee a convergence of several factors that could finally kick this recovery into high gear.

    First on the list is the federal budget. After epic fights this year over the “fiscal cliff,” the “sequester,” and a bunch of other wonky stuff, lawmakers have finally managed to cobble together enough tax hikes and spending cuts to at least stabilize the country’s credit rating.

    Rising home prices are helping, too. Fewer Americans are trapped in underwater mortgages that leave them owing more on their home than the house is worth. Rising prices also boost the net worth of homeowners, adding to consumer confidence.

    Businesses have been complaining for years about “uncertainty” in the public policy area. Next year, some of those unknowns will finally be resolved.

    Companies have held off on hiring because they’re waiting to see how they’ll be affected by health care and finance reform laws, according to John Silvia, chief economist at Wells Fargo. The implementation details of both of those laws will become clearer over the next year.

    “Dodd-Frank and Obamacare need to be worked out, then employment takes off,” Silvia said.

    He believes 2014 “could be a very good year.”

    Just how good? Steve Blitz, chief economist at ITG Investment Research, thinks GDP growth in the 3.5% to 4% range is possible for 2014, if the global economy doesn’t deteriorate. Monthly job growth could peak in the 300,000 range, he believes.

    Blitz anticipates a large numbers of Millennials entering the car-and-home-buying stage of life, giving an added boost to the economy. Plus, the drop in defense spending associated with the draw-down of troops from Iraq and Afghanistan should be largely behind us.

    All of these should add up to a better economy in 2014,” Blitz said.

    So, next year is the year folks!

    Finally.

    Next year the tax hikes and spending cuts (what?) are going to stabilize our credit rating, because that rating has nothing to do with the trillions of dollars of funny money we’ve been printing at the Fed.

    Next year businesses will finally start hiring, once Obamacare is in effect, because those extra thousands of dollars in premiums or fines that small business owners will be forced to pay are a boon for the jobs market.

    Next year, after we pull our troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan, there will be a drop in defense spending… except we’re now mobilizing for a war in Syria, and possibly Iran.

    And, of course, next year the Millennials will be buying cars and homes to add to their iPhone and Xbox collections. And since there are going to be so many high paying retail and restaurant jobs flowing into the economy, that’s going to drive growth to almost 4% per year, as opposed to the sub 2% we’ve managed to attain through inflationary machinations.

    Another driver, as CNN also reports, is that 76% of Americans live paycheck to paycheck, with one in five of our fellow countrymen having less than $100 in savings to deal with emergencies.

    Moreover, with just $202 trillion in national commitments to pay off, the future looks bright for generations to come.

    If that’s not economic stability, we don’t know what is.

    By all expert economic assessment we’re back!

    It’s time to book those vacations, max out those credit cards and fire up the barbecue grills.

    Crisis averted.

    All together shout it now
    there’s no one
    who can doubt it now
    so let`s tell the world about it now
    happy days are here again

    Your cares and troubles are gone
    there’ll be no more from now on
    from now on

    Shout it from the roof tops:

    Happy-days

        That’s a little hard to swallow when
        the target is pasted on the backs of
        the people.
        They must think we’re real guppies.

          @ OutWest. I was really having a bad day until your true clever wit made the day a little bit better with some true humor. The targets are pasted on the backs of people, especially those that still retain any free thought. Can you imagine all the dullards now putting 2014 on their calendars as the time when the U.S. takes off and the everything becomes wonderful again. I can see many of them going out and celebrating this article by going out and making some nice credit card purchases. After all we will all be able to afford it come 2014. Talk about a public that has been kicked repeatingly in the heads and lost all common sense by the jackasses in the government and the MSM.

            Thanks Be informed, sometimes I just can’t help myself

            to tip-toe around the bullshit when they’re not in a barnyard.

                Speaking of prepping hard. I have a question and I know all of you wonderful folks will be able to give me the answer. I woke up real late – just two years ago – because of an illness. Actually, my son has been ill too – Brain tumor – It’s pretty scary trying to prepare when you’re so sick you can’t see straight. BUT, we sold our place and we’re moving – which is real scary now, because the “schite” is so close to hitting the fan – at lease we’re movin’ forward. So, my question – I need to buy a CB radio for the trip. I’m not lazy – just overwhelmed and scared I’m running out of time.

                Can someone tell me what kind to buy? We have Farm and Fleet here and they carry Cobra at different price levels ranging from $50 – $140. Which system is good?

                Thank you in advance.

                  I’m not an expert, but its all in the antenna. Even the cheaper cb’s work better with a good antenna, not the magnet type you slap on the roof of the vehicle.

                  May i suggest hand held two way radios. Cheaper and a good prep.

                  Of course there is also hand held cb’s too.

                  PTO, it all depends on what you’re looking for. If it’s strictly for a vehicle than any model will be just fine (I personally would go with the intermediate priced model, I think it’s the “19″), if you want to use it for other purposes then get the hand-held model. In my experience all Cobra products are very good.

                  You want to stay away from CB radios. If you must get one find a model that has Single Sideband SSB capabilities. Preppers should look into Ham radio. They use FM, have higher power, less noise and distances are much better. Get a dual band UHF/VHF unit for the car that has around 50-watts output that can go Simplex mode or be programmed to use repeaters. Now you have 100 miles + ranges. The problem is you need a license to operate, this is very easy as it costs around $15 and requires passing an exam that is easy too.

                  Later for the RV you want an HF unit covering 10-160 meters (need a General class license) this is your long distance unit to find out what is happening coast to coast or overseas. Buy this unit after you already are licensed at the Technician level with practice on VHF/UHF. Both of those radios will cover a complete band of frequencies for survival both on the road and a perm base camp location.

            Actually, 2013 is the year of the collapse, or at least it’s initiation phase. It’s not that difficult to figure out. The globalist types are hawking their POST 2015 development plans, and have been for a while now.

            2013 gets the ball rolling, the death and destruction is spread out nationwide in 2014, and by 2015 it will be time to clean up the bodies and corral the survivors.

            One year for the collapse to hit and kill everybody, and one year for them to clean up the bodies of those they kill as many as possible and convince the survivors that the banksters are their saviors so they will accept the Post 2015 agenda.

            A new dictator put into office in 2016 through fraudulent elections, or a PERMANENT dictator installed through military force, and the stage has been set for the next 100 years of bankster crimes.

            Unfortunately for them, as they look to plan what happens after the Great USA Culling, their enemy (the people) are getting ready to fight back and reemploy the guillotine as a favor to them to minimize suffering as the average Man can not see his way to employ the same tactics being used against them by the psychopaths that DO NOT care what they do to us.

            I say, since they are so open to torture and suffering, that we show them what they support. Don’t kill the bastards. Kidnap them and lock them away in a place safe for you, and every now and then pay them a visit with some fun devices that will cause them the same pain they dish out.

            The overthrow of the People took place in 1913, 13 being a VERY significant number to them. A couple of years later they started a war to cull Europe and consolidate their holdings. Thirty years later they started another war to cull Europe again.

            That plan has been carried out, and 2013 starts a new plan to remove the defenses of the People of the USA and cull them through World War on our own soil.

            Truth is, I don’t care anymore. I can’t stop them, nor can I educate idiots that have no conception of freedom and the INNER peace it holds.

            I can live for God, and fight for God, and the Natural Rights that I have been given.

            I don’t need them or their Post 2015 (post mass murder) agenda. Should I die prematurely, please bury me face down so they can kiss my ass.

              2014 huh?? Whoopie!!
              What’s the old saying? There’s a a bridge in Brooklyn you might be interested in and cheap too!! But if you look at the flurry of shit that surrounds us today almost on a daily basis any curtailment back towards the norm would be a respite.
              What could happen between now and then? Let’s analyze.
              A lot of us will be working a 29 hour week so our employers can avoid paying for obamacare. We’ll be more concerned with scraping put a meager living
              Weekly pay will be way down and we will have to do with a lot less just like the professional “I don’t have to work” crew of Obama followers.
              We will finally find out what was in “IT” once it goes onto affect now that it’s passed. Pelosi’s going to have to go hide in a bunker or leave the country once the masses finds out.
              We will become assimilated to the idea of our government spying on our lives and collecting our data. Do you really think they are spending $2 billion on a data storage center in Utah and they are just going to close it up, do ya?
              We will get use to the IRS hammering the shit out of our paychecks and targeting those that Obama don’t like. It might even get to the point if you have conservative views you will catch an audit a lot more often.
              We’ll forget about Bengasi. That’s a shame.
              Whistleblowers will be a thing of the past and will be only remembered in some underground historical writings or passed down from the elders to the young.
              Food might a little scarce and our priorities will lean more towards eating as opposed to what our grandeurs leaders (no matter what side their on or in) are up to.
              We will get accustom to the idea there’s “us” and them, in DC that is. We are just peons or underlings.
              Political murders will just magically occur to any opposition.
              We will be so tired of this shit we will just pass off anything as a life’s occurrence and it won’t bother any of us. No big deal.
              And who knows what will be waiting in the wings that we haven’t heard of yet or thought about. Nothing would surprise me now.
              I feel everything that’s has happened to this point was by design and for a purpose.
              Snowden; what he did would have had to took a real set of cojhonies (nuts) to do what he did. All a part of the assimilation of us. Get it out in the open and deal with it and the people will come around. The IRS, bullshit the exact same way. we are going to pay more and we are going to like it, like it or not, you will just keep your mouth shut about it.
              Yea; 2014 will be better, but not for us!!
              Our place will be, just being the passive little puppies they have us pegged for.
              Happy f@@king New Year!!

                Be happy the govt. are stocking up on ammo. Now we know where to go to stock up.

                ha.

                Also.. Fema camps.. let them build all this shit up…then we take it all back.

                The NRA is the largest private standing army.

                All it would take is a military general to place a phone call and he’s get the mailing list and we’d all be contacted. Then we’d partner with local law enforcement.
                The enemy will be the UN Peacekeepers. Russian troups…chinese too.
                They won’t be going home. Also. congress will be arrested as traitors.

                Americans will NEVER give up their guns. No way. I’m sure of it.
                We all see the pattern going on here.. NDAA bill, fema camps, hollow point ammo stockup…chemtrails to weaken us and make us all sick.

                The traitors are all the bilderbergers. There you go.

                the big issue is time. Age is killing off the Americans that remember American values.
                they are dragging things out.

                You know things will be bad if they change the law and get Obama in for a third term. Then you know…things will get bad.

                We’re all being too polite around this smooth taking black gent.
                Yet many are waking up.

                This is all just natural…things are not static….we’re headed towards socialism and in time…that will be a failure and the hard working folks will be back.

                Dems.. don’t hire them. Raise their rent. They are commies.

              Trying to read the tea leaves is getting increasingly more difficult.

              Something tells me that a sizable percentage of the Communist left would like to foist the butt-ugly and Satanically evil Hildebeast on us in 2016. That might be why the left is so panicked about getting amnesty passed, because with 8-10 million more low IQ, dumber than a moldy taco, brand new parasites and bloodsuckers from Mexico added to their voting base – it will make no difference who they run, even a shriveled up, ugly old broad like Hillary – because these leeches are going to pull the lever for the D party, no matter what.

              Oh, and remember the recent insane court ruling – that states can’t require proof of citizenship before allowing someone to register to vote? That plays right into the evil, Communist hands of the DemoNCRAT party – and no matter what kind of baloney we hear out of the Gangster gang of 8 treasonous maggots – these illegal aliens are going to be voting and it is not going to matter if they are not citizens yet.

              Look at the evil smirk that is constantly painted on the vomit provoking face of Chuck Schumer whenever this turd is on TV and talking about the amnesty bill. This rat knows he is pulling a major scam over on the stupid GOP and also on the American people.

                I live in the Highest concentration of illegal immigrants in America. San Bernardino County, California.

                While most Latino’s are family oriented, hard working and have strong Christian values (same values that built this country) others are connected to drug cartels, gangs, and criminal elements ranging from sexual slavery rings to ID theft.

                This Shamnesty bill is supposed to insure that only the best qualified will be allowed to stay, trust the government to do this just like how they protected us from the Boston bombers.

                All this is going to do is swell the welfare rolls and create a new under-class that will vote for the biggest handouts from the Democrapic party. They will be in power for generations to come and the political structure and society will start to look like Mexico including all the corruption.

                These areas will become the new cartel hubs exporting the drugs and crime from inside the borders to the rest of America.

                At least now they must keep most of it outside the borders.

                You and your children will be the generation to see the death of America.

            Then when 2014 gets here (fiscal year: 1 Oct.2013) they’ll point to the 2nd or 3rd quarter. After that then it’ll be 2015. This is the trend. Mid-term elections (2014) are coming up, must blame somebody, i.e. Repubs, capitalists, Bush,..wait, wait, it must be those greedy and selfish preppers. They are keeping us from recovery.

              2014? No way, it’s not gonna happen. Most sensible countries have insulated themselves from the US. They don’t want anything to do with us. We’ve pushed our rules, tariffs and petro dollars down other countries throats for decades now. And in some cases, those that didnt comply to ‘our’ bidding we invaded militarily or bankrupted. China, India, Russia and Brazil have taken over power from the US. It’s their century. We’ll be very much like Britian was last century …. Broke, unemployed, hungry and sinking. Yet we only have ourselves to blame. Because we let it happen. We said nothing when things were wrong but instead of speaking out we said nothing.

              My guess is, we’ll not recover to the end of this century. That’s if anyone can ever trust again.

        Smokey do we have to keep them in office. I can’t believe so few Blogs are talking about this Snowden affair. Guess maybe we’re in fear of the NSA. We have all of these Tratorist Politicians calling, to hang him and most of them should be removed from office or locked up for perverting and/or violating our Constitution. Snowden reveals or should I say substantiates that the NSA is storing all of our phone calls and emails and probably has the ability to scan and record all of our mail. And we just seem to say HoHum nothing we can do about it. Julian Assange and Edward Snowden reveals what is going on and they truly become “enemies of the state” and then we hear how they damaged national security by letting We The People know what the Government is doing to us. So let this be a lesson when ever you get ready to take a stand, don’t expect anyone to come to your aid, you’ll be on your own. Trekker Out. Freedom Ain’t Free!

            The possibility does exist, I think, that Snowden was hyped up deliberately and is simply playing a role as a heroic NSA whistleblower, in order to build up his ‘credentials’.

            What better or more clever way to trick the Russians into letting us insert a spy or disinformation agent into their country who could then be used to feed false intelligence to the Russians?

        Bravo KY!

        Now for a place to put all this food stuffs….
        Think dark and cool!

        What we did is turned the 3rd bedroom into a 180 square foot cooler. We used a window air conditioner from Mallfart, with some foil insulation and plastic racks from Home Depot. Installed the 6000 btu window AC unit (slightly oversized) then completely covered the rest of window with the insulation. Then we covered the HVAC vents in the room and setup the racks along the walls and down the center. To get the AC unit to hold around 55ºf I pulled the thermocouple down from the front of the intake and tucked it underneath between the unit and the window sill. It fools the thermostat and bumps you down a few more degrees. Been running this configuration for about 6 months now and it held fast at 110ºf outdoor temp this last weekend.

        Nice having our own grocery store.

Any idea about what to do to hide preps when you’re showing a house for sale? We’re leaving Ohio as soon as possible and this temporary “housing bubble” might be our only chance to see this place. Although, I have to admit, we’ve seen no bubble around here, so please wish us luck.

            You need to depersonalize your house when it’s time to sell, take the family photos off the walls, box up the preps, get rid of the clutter, and maybe a storage locker for a month or two. Boxes stacked around the house means you are ready to sell and offers get reduced accordingly. Put some of the increased profit in some new preps at your new place.

            Make sure everything about the house works perfectly, A/C, appliances, lights, etc. Repaint using neutral colors, such as a darker off-white for the walls and white enamel for the trim. Also, fix the landscaping a little with a few new plants and new redwood mulch. My wife and I fixed up our little house that way for sale just before the housing market tanked. We got out of the house one day and had 3 offers the next day. Even though anyone can repaint, they can’t seem to get past odd paint colors. Depersonalizing the house makes it easier for buyers to see themselves living there. The neutral colors and white trim also make the rooms look larger.

            Watch House Hunters on HGTV and take note of the things people reject perfectly good houses for.

              @hammerhead- Right you are. They vote for the free lunch. Or, if neocon, they vote for the guy who says he’s gonna go kill some of those mean old terrorists who took down the towers. Either way, they never stop to think about what they are giving away- liberty, rights, freedom. They just don’t think that far ahead. Nor do they stop to ask if what’s being promised by the political weasels can be delivered. (like a free lunch that goes on forever) Or even if it should be delivered. (like a war under false pretenses).
              By the way, I’m all in favor of dead terrorists. (regardless of whether they ride camels in the desert or chauffeured limousines around Buckingham palace). I just prefer to stay on this side of the globe and watch them kill each other. Leave our boys here at home. Of course, that may be too simplistic a view of the situation. I never claimed to not be ignorant.
              In my brief perusal of human history I have discovered one thing. Tyranny arrives in one of two ways. Either by ballots or by bloodshed. It generally leaves only by the latter…

      Why SHOULD I; risk life, property, family to re-establish a free USA again, when it will simply slide down the slope again in another brief span of time?

      The only answer I have, is because I could not bear to look at my children or grandchildren, enslaved thru their own ignorance and lethargy and think to myself” I could have helped to change this, and I did nothing.”

      So that is why I will fight. Hopefully in a smart fashion, not sacrificially. Hopefully in a very meaningful fashion so that I and others can succeed in re-establishing, even if only for decades, a truly free USA.

      Side benefits may include removal of all illegals, elimination of all gun laws, restoration of free enterprise – the only form of industry that works for more than a few years – and elimination of the vast majority of intrusive laws currently on the books, including income tax and virtually every other tax we labor under.

        I couldn’t live with that.

        So I did something.

        A LOT of something. A WHOLE LOT of something. An amount of something that would give you the shakes from stress.

        The result?

        No result.

        I’m BROKE so there’s THAT result. Beyond that? Nada zilch zippo.

        Sometimes these things have a life of their own, and you can’t change what other people are going to do. As in: take your efforts, consume them, and then take a shit all over them in terms of the root philosophy of what you were attempting to accomplish for them.

There is no protection for doing the right thing any more. Standing on principle is like standing on the gallows. Snowden did the right thing but he will be punished for it by TPTB. I have come to realize the politicians are afraid of TPTB and will not do what is right for the USA.

        @RICH99, I empathize with and understand the sentiment expressed in you comment.

        However, you are discounting some very relevant history since 2008 when arriving at your conclusion. When TARP and QE stimulus were first proposed in late 2008 into 2009…you had members of Congress state that THEY were threatened with MARTIAL LAW IN AMERICA COME MONDAY MORNING if THEY did not pass the proposed “stimulus” as suggested.

        That fact alone was the RED FLAG that the “sheeple” ignored and allowed to happen. It REALLY IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME!

        TPTB literally bought (money out of thin air) the additional time needed to prepare for what is about to occur within OUR BORDERS.

        BILLIONS OR ROUNDS OF HOLLOW POINT AMMUNITION (illegal under the Geneva convention), foreign troops already stationed within OUR BORDERS, accelerated erosion of individual liberty/privacy/Bill of Rights protection.

        The “economy” and “stock market” are both illusions about to POP. While I empathize and even understand your righteously disillusioned hypothesis…I completely disagree. Every “normal day” from here forward is a “gift”.

        WE have very few “gifts” remaining. I wish you were right, but I know THIS YEAR will prove you wrong. I do hope you are prepping.

        The MSM, which is nothing more than a “captured” extended Public Relations enterprise for D.C., has no other choice but say good times are right around the corner.

        No doubt you have seen what has been happening with the 10 Year Treasury yields and the liquidity melt down in Chinese banking. Despite Bernanke’s best efforts to maintain near zero percent interests rates on the Treasuries, there has been an uncontrolled across the board rise in the rates. Even Bernanke yesterday said he was perplexed about the recent increases in the rates. If he’s surprised about that, just wait and see what happens in the next 6 months. We haven’t seen any money printing yet. They are going to print money like their lives depend on it to keep this charade going as long as possible. Cheers.

          @ YH. What we are going to see with the U.S. dollar is what is called capital flight. Countries are waking up to the fact that a country with a ballooning debt is not such a good investment. The U.S. may be able to bomb the crap out of countries that want to change their petro dollar that they sell their oil and natural gas to something other than the U.S dollar, but they can’t bomb the whole world. Well maybe they can. At least they cannot focus on one country alone. Several countries, including some NATO countries, are considering switching over or have dumped the U.S. dollar, bad risk.

          It is rock and a hard place. If the U.S. stops printing money they can’t pay the debt and they default. They continue to print money like no tomorrow and the U.S. dollar goes Bye Bye and they can’t pay the interest on the loans even.

              @ cali-kid. The San Andreas is so locked that it is extremely unlikely you will see anything on it. What you will see is the pressure releases, or what you call the yawning and stretching on the adjacent faults. The San Jacinto fault has been getting hit over and over again just a couple of miles from the San Andreas towards usually Fontana. The most dangerous faults in my opinion besides the San Andreas are: the San Jacinto, the Whittier/Elsinore, Newport/Ingelwoood, and the Garlock. The smaller hidden blind thrusts are also an issue.

              Precursor quakes around the world seem to aim towards the Drake Passage down between South America and Antarctica, the Asian Pacific plate boundary above the Arctic Circle, and an area close to the boundary between the Pacific and Antarctica plate down between the Balleny Islands and the Macquarie Isalnds at about 59-62 degrees south. On a flat map no one would see this correlation. On a globe using a flat piece of string or a tape measure and using the movement on the plates you can see where these areas target the Southern California area.

              The pure crap that they tell you about the San Andreas is beyond lies to not further scare people. It is highly likely that the break will start in the Salton Sea region, perhaps even further down towards the Gulf of California. It will continue past Wrightwood towards the Grapevine all the way to the Parkfield about 325 miles of break. That means for each 2 miles of break, one second of shaking. Almost 3 minutes of intense shaking. The amount of displacement is likely to be much more than the 29 feet in 1857. More like 40 feet. Old intermittent stream beds show this type of past movements. If it has enough momentum to continue past the creep zone between Parkfield and south of Hollister and go to the north, you have a mega quake like the one last year west of Indonesia that registered 8.6 or 8.7, and many minutes of shaking.

              Not only do very large strike slip horizontal quakes trigger thrust faults and other strike slips, like that huge one off of Indonesia, but the shaking is very different and the angle at which the earthquake waves move will determine destruction and utter destruction. Epicenter and hypocenter are vastly different in other than a 90 degree fault. Epicenter is where the earthquake starts from miles down, and hypocenter is where the earthquake waves hit the surface where people build their homes and the infrastructure is. The San Andreas is a different way of looking at this.

              IF the San Andreas was just a straight cut across the state the earthquake waves would follow that line and everything within a few miles of the faults would get heavily whacked and that would be it. The fault though turns at certain points, especially towards San Bernadino. At these turns the waves of energy also turn and direct that energy at points away from the fault. One of these areas that intense waves will be directed towards is Pasadena and east LA. Just like a crack on a windshield follows a certain pathway determined on weak points but mainly on the shape of the windshield.

              They not dare tell people where these focal points of pure destruction will be for too many typical reasons to mention. Then you have the thrust faults that add insult to injury to buildings barely standing that now have to endure vertical movement after minutes of horizontal shaking. Same type of fault in Mongolia triggered a believe two major thrust faults about 60 years ago. Again, worst case scenario would be the San Andreas going then the Whitter/Elsinore lets loose with a mid to high 7 range and the Newport/Inglewood goes off 7.5. This destroys Long Beach and Orange country and annihilates Lake Elsinore and Temecula that it runs right under.

              It has been at least 313 years since the Southern San Andreas has broken, about the same time the Cascadia fault broke up in Washington. The entire San Andreas is a Moderately quick fault that usually never passes 250 years. This region of the south is a little slower than the central or north section but should have gone by now. The tension and pressure there is unbelivable. This is why I truly believe it will continue to the 1857 break that is about 20 years overdue now. 8.1-8.4. There may be so much energy that it goes right through that buffer zone right to the north. An article about this from one of the TV stations out there talked about this, once thought impossible as now possible.

              The issue here is just look at all the records being broken; the largest hurricane in Sandy ever recorded making land that far north, the largest deep focus quake ever recorded last month, the largest strike slip quake last year, the largest japanese quake ever recorded, the widest toranado every recorded last month, the largest radiation storm ever recorded from the sun. Yeah I think it is very possible with all that pinned up energy to the south for most of the fault to break.

              From a survival point of view the absolute best course of action is to leave the area. Other than this storing up for true hell is the nest best option. People out there have no idea the amount of pure kinetic energy this is going to unleash. The longer it goes, just like filling up something with pressure, the more powerful the release will be. People ho hum that it never will happen. IT HAS TO. It would have been better if it broke 30 years ago. Now it is catastrophic. It will likely not sink in the ocean, small areas will like around Seal Beach, but the amount of fires and disease afterwards will be horrific. I recommend to people I know out there a bare minimum of 60 days of supplies. Most other areas of the country 30 days bare minimum. Really 60 days, 2 months. Prepare for savage acts that rival Haiti disaster and be as well armed as possible. I will try to give people a warning when I see something from other plates acting with each other.

    21. been there (in xUSSR) says:

      Back in mid- to late 1980-s they were promising us the same in the USSR – just suffer a little bit more, and it will definitely get better. The trick was it was slowly, but surely getting worse and worse until ending with real collapse sometime in spring-summer of 1992..

      So, with this CNN warning (and yes, it is a _warning_ – the very 1st sign of collapse for me is when mass-media whores are starting telling everything will be fine…”next year”) I’m eventually starting looking for the following signs:

      1) big war somewhere in the other hemisphere(you are Americans, yes you can); then all the problems locally can be explained with:”We are at War!!!”, with next question of:”Why are you complaining? Are you unpatriotic?”

      2) if #1 does not work, then look for shortages of certain things and food items appearing slowly at the beginning. It may be European food items, coffee/cocoa or anything else which does not naturally grow in the US abundantly. Most of us can do without those items most of the time, but I’d be very scared to see it happening “again”.

      3) more or less exotic food shortages turning into necessities shortages (toilet paper, whisky, toothpaste, socks,condoms, gasoline).

      4) with gasoline and especially Diesel becoming scarce or prohibitevely expensive, expect all hell eventually breaking loose (civil war, secession, crimes against humanity, what can you think of…)

      Captain Obvious? Not so fast.. Normalcy bias is a she-dog, keep your eyes open (unlike me and my parents back then there, but anyway, we could not do much except for stocking up with conserves (retail and home made), medicines and clothes and shoes, which turned out being enormously useful in just few short years in early 1990-s).

I pay just under $10,000 a year for healthcare on 3, under the act I’ll be paying $21,000 for the bronze program or keeping my plan and paying another $6,000 in fines. Either way Its money I don’t have? If you think about it, it’s just more money sucked out of the small business sector and economy.

              My customers are suffering severely with erosion of their purchasing power. Everything is going up except the value of their home, the dollars in their wallet and their income.

              We are witness to a 24/7 propaganda ministry telling the world all is well. When the protest reach hundreds of thousands or millions the system will collapse.

              As for your homestead credit it will be eroded too. Slowly but surely every town, city, county, state and federal government is increasing fees, assessments and taxes, to me their all taxes. The whole system is corrupted against the citizen tax payer.

              Now by tracking and recording every move, call, email and transaction you make it opens a door to all kinds of new taxes, fees and audits. They are connecting all the dots of your life. The sad part is 90% think they are fighting terror.

        Photos from the wreck showed the car engulfed in flames with no front end damage at first. ( interesting )

        Hasting also cc’d a military friend of his in afghan country.

        Interesting that Hastings was about to break a HUGE story on the CIA and FBI eh?

        Hastings was one of the best investigative reporters.

        When I first heard of the crash I turned to the wife and told her someone killed him. Even his friends do not want to give into tin foil hat ideas but they are feeling something is WRONG here.

        Interesting that Before its news came out with the article about how cars with anti lock breaks CAN be remote controlled. Who Killed Hastings? you know who.

        If I was Mercedes I would be investigating this myself seeing how this states our cars explode on impact.

I think the middle class is planting gardens and otherwise adjusting to the socialized system. When I say “middle class” I mean those who work for a living. Those of us will adjust. 2014 is a new beginning. We are actively adapting to this socialized systems of handouts for those too lazy to work and handouts to those too rich to be responsible. Yes, dollar-credit supply will continue to explode and drive inflation – maybe in a few years the Chinese, Australians, Russians, and Iraqis can get enough brains and guts to use their own currency; but, the value of America is those of us who work and produce. This is what would-be conquering nations never seem to grasp. Its not the dollars in bank accounts nor the gold in valuts, its the people creating value. Just as the competing world powers are getting off the dollar, so are we. 2014 is a bright future. We just need to continue to learn how to divorce ourselves from the FRN slavery system.

      our own corrupt supreme court justices , federal judges , federal law enforcement , military , congress critters and sneaky senators have sold out their own country , states to the nwo globalists in hopes of acquiring a elitist position in the nwo global government / GLOBAL BANK .

      the writing is on the wall …

      whether its 1 year , 10 years or even 40 years … this is going to happen

      “UNLESS ‘WE THE PEOPLE’ STOP THEM WITH DEADLY FORCE”

      it’s really that simple .

      ARM UP STOCK UP PREPARE

      and look within ASK yourselves – “ARE YOU WILLING TO KILL ANOTHER PREDATORY HUMAN BEING TO PROTECT YOURSELF AND FAMILY FROM THE NWO TECHNOCRAT GLOBALIST CORRUPT OLIGARCHY BANKERS AND ILLUMINATI VAMPIRES .

      And if you believe that -that things will get back to normal in 2014- have I got a deal for you! I’ve got a winter down hill ski resort in Florida, that I will give you a very special deal on. Ah, no checks or credit cards, payment in gold, silver or phyisical items of choice. Don’t delay, act now.

      What is likely to happen is just the very opposite will happen and matters will get much worse.

      You believe what you want to believe.

      Truth or lies, it doesn’t matter. As long as the problems do not exist for you, it’s not real. Out of sight, out of mind. Yes, what you don’t see can’t hurt you. Things have a habit of creeping up on us. We are sometimes forced to make decisions that could have major implications in our lives. Like cancelling our life and home insurance or car insurance because we can not pay the premiums. We can become enchanted by hype and good deals turn out to be not so good deals. Anyone buying a home or a new car should consider the future is not stable. Lost of you job or an interest rate hike could put many in a bind. Many decisions are impulsive. Once one enters the credit/debt cycle, it is hard to extricate yourself from it. Loss of your home or car to even end up living in a tent community.
      What our FREE PRESS reports is no more than an illusion. There will be many sales persons to make you a deal on anything you want. Long as you sign on the dotted line.
      So get that home, boat, car and go on a wonderful vacation.
      After all, “It’s only money”

      The Sexual Pedo Freemasons 666 –

      The Finders of Lost Children use their child sex slave victims to ensnare up-and-coming politicians, businessmen, academics, and other rising stars.

      They invite their targets to parties, offer alcohol and cocaine, and then lead them into a bedroom where a child sex slave awaits. The activities are filmed, and the target is a “made man” for life.

      The “sexual freemasons 666” of the New World Order 666 control all of the big American institutions. That is why it was impossible to prosecute them, even when many were exposed in the Franklin Scandal.

      That is why stories about their outrageous activities, such as orgies with child-slave prostitutes in the White House, get suppressed.And that is why President George W. Bush was, according to former NSA officer Wayne Madsen, able to set up a live-streaming closed-circuit TV system in the White House so he and his pals could jerk off to the sex torture, sodomization of children in front of their parents, and similar activities at Abu Ghraib – activities that were ordered and orchestrated by the sexual freemasons 666 .

      As George H.W. Bush told White House correspondent Sarah McClendon: “Sarah, if the American people ever find out what we have done, they will chase us down the streets and lynch us.”

      The sexual freemasons 666 have come a long way on their “long march through the institutions.”

      Will Pope Benedict, by all accounts a well-meaning man, be able to orchestrate a housecleaning at the Vatican? Will the sexual freemasons 666 ever be purged from the institutions they currently dominate?

      Maybe the best way to do that would be simultaneous religious revolutions in all countries. After all, the Islamic Revolution did succeed in chasing the sexual freemasons 666 out of Iran. The few who remain have to hide deep underground, fearing for their lives. As well they should.

      Chasing them all down the street and lynching them doesn’t sound like a bad idea at all.

      I was out fishing with my cousin, the community college English professor.
      He said- “The mainstream media outlets have become a bunch of pretentious popinjays parading the people along a puerile perambulation of pusillanimous prevarication.”

      I said- “Ditto!”

      He said “Americans have been inundated with these insipid insinuations for so long, they now believe them. It’s all intended to inculcate indifference among the idiots. Its end goal is to impoverish, to enslave, and to advance the interests of the insidious internationalists.

      I said “Damn straight!”

      He said “Are you even following what I’ve said? Didn’t you say we were going fishing in order to have some time for a long conversation? To discuss current geo-political events and their implications for people such as ourselves? Do you even understand what I’ve said?”

      “I read you loud and clear, cousin. The Rothschild money machine rolls on. The media are merely the propaganda arm. I just prefer to say it in okiespeak.”

      “Perhaps I am being somewhat verbose in my analysis. How would you say it?”

      “Damn banksters and tyrants. Hang ‘em all!”

      He said- “Ditto!”

      Whatever they are smoking, drinking, or inhaleing sounds to me we all need to stay away from them and just keep on prepping.

      Went to Walmart today and stocked up on the little boxes of Hyngry Jack hash browns not bad in price and they come in a 1/2 pint milk box which will store really easy; all you do is add boiling water let them sit for 12 mins and pop them into a frying pan and in about 10 mins you have hash browns to go with your eggs. It doesn’t get any easier then that. Also backpack great.

      A quick note: Prepping is one part obtaining stuff and nine parts developing skills.

      Train relentlessly. When you’ve got it down perfectly go back and do it again until your eyeballs bleed. Your stuff can be lost or destroyed but your skills will stay with you for life. Even if misfortune strikes down your ability to practice your skills, you’re still of value if you can communicate and teach them.

      I started prepping in 1976, at the tender age of 15. It was obvious to me that surviving an economic collapse would require much more than my Mini-14 and a case of C-rations. I reasoned that I would need to become invaluable by virtue of my abilities.

      That, more than anything, drove me to become a family physician. Yes, I took a hit when the economy folded. That and Obamacare have forced the closure of my private practice; I’m a hospital employee now. When Obamacare folds (and it will), I’ll pick up a fee-for-service model with barter and lots of pro bono.

      If things get really rotten, I have the option of expating. I’m welcome nearly anywhere.

      My point is that when you consider your preps, be sure to focus on the one thing that can’t be destroyed, confiscated or devalued. Make yourself valuable, indispensible if you can. The MREs will run out eventually. What you know can make you the one person who matters, the one no one can afford to be without.

      Some will remember the character of Dan Forrester, PhD in Lucifer’s Hammer. Deprived of insulin, he was a dying diabetic. Yet he became The Magician, the one person who enabled the survival of many others, because his knowledge was broad and deep.

      Become the Magician.

      Ok, read everything before you decide to blast me because I do not mean any ill intent or to offend anyone. I spent 8 years in the Army and have conducted UWT on several occasions. I have seen new weapons come and go and new methods trial and error. I applaud those that are so willing to defend this country and stand against tyranny as Patriots just as I am. Imagine if you will, SHTF and chaos and rioting are rampant. Food and gas are rationed, the government is in the streets with checkpoints and martial law lockdown. MRAPS armed to the teeth patrol the streets along with countless armed men that are trained in tactics that are force by numbers and enforce by fear tactics and brutality. When they come to your door they will not be one or two soldiers, it will be a nightmare scenario should you ever have to defend you and yours and will not end with a glorious victory for you. The victory will not be had by going toe-to-toe with them, but in the back woods tactics that they have never trained for. My advice, get off grid, get your family and loved ones safe with other like minded individuals then if you can decide what is needed of you and the best tactics to accomplish them. Do not foolishly waste your Patriotism thinking you can stay in your home and fight the mass numbers of starving citizens and the mass soldiers that will be enforcing dumb dumbs rules.
      I have to talked to countless people that say they are all in and that they will fight on. Yet, when I mention getting off grid it is a brick wall and excuses beyond measure. I believe we have to let go of our daily norm and get off grid. I know I have asked before but I will ask again, anyone serious about getting off grid or already off grid and looking for brothers in arms? If so, contact me deltagbear(at)gmail(dot)com
