Editor’s Comment: As much as nobody wants to face it, a number of factors are lining up that may well signal our demise. The market, prone to disaster at this very special 7 year cycle culminating in September, may hold some very unfortunate surprises for Americans who are distracted by media trivia and oblivious to what is going on around them.

Why Are So Many People Freaking Out About A Stock Market Crash In The Fall Of 2015?

by Michael Snyder

Is the stock market going to crash by the end of 2015?  Of course stock market crashes are already happening in 23 different nations around the planet, but most Americans don’t really care about those markets.  The truth is that what matters to people in this country is the health of their own stock portfolios and retirement accounts.  There are a lot of people out there that are very afraid of what could happen if the money that they have worked so hard to save gets wiped out in a sudden financial collapse.  And right now there is an unprecedented amount of buzz about the potential for a giant stock market crash by the end of this calendar year.  In fact, I don’t think that I have ever seen more experts come out with bold predictions that a stock market crash will happen within a very specific period of time.

The following is a sampling of some of the experts that have made very bold proclamations about the rest of this year over the past few weeks.  Many of these individuals are putting their credibility on the line by proclaiming that a stock market crash is just around the corner…

-Tom McClellan says that we are heading for an “ugly decline” and that there will be “nothing good for bulls for the rest of the year”

Tom McClellan loves doing what financial advisers tell you not to do. He tries to time the financial markets — to the exact day, if his charts align just right.

At the moment, they are telling him to be bullish on the stock market for all of his trading time frames, including those that trade every few days, weeks and months. But bulls should be ready to flee, as soon as this week.

That’s because McClellan said his timing models suggest “THE” top in stocks will be hit some time between Aug. 20 and Aug. 26. He expects “nothing good for the bulls for the rest of the year,” he said in a phone interview with MarketWatch.

McClellan doesn’t have a strong view on how far stocks could fall, just that it will probably be an “ugly decline” lasting into early 2016.

-Harry Dent recently stated that we are just “weeks away” from a “global financial collapse“.

-Gerald Celente says that “the global economy has collapsed” and he is “predicting that we are going to see a global stock market crash before the end of the year“.

-Larry Edelson insists that he is “100% confident” that a global financial crisis will be triggered “within the next few months”…

On October 7, 2015, the first economic supercycle since 1929 will trigger a global financial crisis of epic proportions. It will bring Europe, Japan and the United States to their knees, sending nearly one billion human beings on a roller-coaster ride through hell for the next five years. A ride like no generation has ever seen. I am 100% confident it will hit within the next few months.”

-Jeff Berwick, the editor of the Dollar Vigilante, says that there is “enough going on in September to have me incredibly curious and concerned about what’s going to happen“.

-Egon von Greyerz recently explained that he fears “that this coming September – October all hell will break loose in the world economy and markets“.

-Even the mainstream media is issuing ominous warnings now.  Just a few days ago, one of the most important newspapers in the entire world published a major story about the coming crisis under this headline: “Doomsday clock for global market crash strikes one minute to midnight as central banks lose control“.

-The Bank for International Settlements and the IMF have jumped on the prediction bandwagon as well.  The following comes from a recent piece by Brandon Smith

The BIS warns that the world is currently defenseless against the next market crisis. I would point out that the BIS has a record of predicting economic crashes, including back in 2007 just before the derivatives and credit crisis began. This ability to foresee fiscal disasters is far more likely due to the fact that the BIS is the dominant force in global central banking and is the cause of crisis, rather than merely a predictor of crisis. That is to say, it is easy to predict disasters you yourself are about to initiate.

It is no mistake that the warnings from the BIS and the IMF tend to come too little too late, or that they are beginning to compose cautionary press releases today that sound much like what alternative analysts were saying a few years ago. The goal of these globalist organizations is not to help people prepare, only to set themselves up as Johnny-come-lately prognosticators so that after a collapse they can claim they warned us all, which can then be used as a rationalization for why they are the best people to administrate the economies of the planet as a whole.

So why are so many prominent voices now warning that a global financial crisis is imminent?

The answer is actually very simple.

A global financial crisis is imminent.

Back on June 25th, I issued a red alert for the last six months of 2015 before any of these other guys issued their warnings.

When I first issued my alert, things were still seemingly very calm in the financial world, and a lot of people out there thought that I was nuts.

Well, here we are just a couple of months later and all hell is breaking loose.  23 global stock markets are crashing, the price of oil has been imploding, a new currency war has erupted, industrial commodities are plunging just like they did prior to the market crash of 2008, a full-blown financial crisis has gripped South America with fear, and junk bonds are sending some very ominous signals.

In the U.S., things are beginning to slowly unravel.  The Dow was down another 162 points on Wednesday, and overall we are now down almost 1000 points from the peak of the market.  At this point, it isn’t going to take much to push us into a bear market.

So enjoy what is left of August.

September is right around the corner, and if the experts that I mentioned above are correct, then it is likely to be one wild month.

  1. Could today’s stock meltdown be the beginng of the end?

    • DJIA 16,990.69

      Daymmm..

      • Mac…why do you keep saying “This article was written by Michael Snyder and originally posted at his Economic Collapse blog.”

        When some of know, YOU ARE Michael Snyder.

        • I assure you mike Snyder and i are two different people! But to be compared to Michael is an honor – thank you!

          • maddog says:

            Kinda like Jeckel & Hide

            • PWYPreach says:

              Not at all, Maddog, not at all…totally wrong comparison.

              Think Orville & Wilbur, Elwood & Jake, Lewis & Clark, Armstrong & Aldrin…and now there is Slavo & Snyder.

            • It’s Jekyll and Hyde. Seriously, how long does it take to google something.

              • passinwiththewind says:

                I was involved with a woman in the early nineties, that I referred to as Jekyll & Hyde B……

                She was a long tall drink of cool water until she got about five beers in her, then look out. after a couple more it was on.

                She was a brawler and could turn into a wild woman at the drop of a hat. She had a black belt in Karate, but I had two long fast legs. When she turned into Hyde, I would run and hide.

                Finally packed her bags after she came in late one night drunk and pulled a gun on me. I realized that the baby dolls were not always the smartest.

                • WhoWuddaThunkIt says:

                  I’ve dated a lot of women in my life, and refer to that as the Risk/Reward. The crazier they are the better the sex you get, nympho like, and thats all they want is sex. I hang in there for months to get my fill, then they turn psycho if you suddenly piss them off or try to break up. Exactly, you know when they start turning violent to Run as fast as you can away before they do drastic harm to you physically or legally. The even mild tempered women are loyal but boring in the bedroom. There is no perfect woman out there… of course the women would say the same thing about men as well. Ive gotten more accomplished in the last few years by not dating much at all. Women areca distraction to your goals and tgey know how to get you to drain your wallet on them instead of worthy things like prepps. Cant live with them and you cant kill them either. Single and free is great. I only date women now about half my age now. Late 20’s is good.. They still are happy, cheerful and love to learn and explore. Older women just want boring shit, sit around, needless stuff, like a frigging anchor. However younger women mostly have ADD, and can easily be distracted, but still a good challenge and keeps me sharp as a buz saw. If I could only find me a young hot stable prepper chick, good natured and happy, eager to learn and try anything, including living off the grid, let me know.

                  Hey Mac, about start up a prepper dating link to find a compatible mate? Ha. Lots of new single preppers out there but how do we all connect in a common goal forum?

                • apache54 says:

                  passin,
                  WOW sounds like my ex-wife!!

                • passinwiththewind says:

                  Hey knucklehead,

                  You got one thing right, the crazier the women the wilder the sex. Oh,excuse me I think you said “better”. OK close enough.

                  The sex can be better with almost any woman if you know what makes them tick and will tell them it’s the “experimental” way, or the highway. Most will go along and try to keep up the tricks in order to hold a relationship together. But, some relationships aren’t worth the effort. If there are no emotions, it is just a physical endeavor.

                  The Jekyll/ Hyde bitch was one of the best and…. can’t get into details here, but I’ll just say two things, sizz-wheel and hair trigger, ok three, no lube required.

                  Anyways, I put up with crazy for almost three years before the pulling of the pistola episode, just because of the awesome sex. We clicked almost 90% of the time, but she was never gonna give up the excess beer. Liquor was a big no no…scary.
                  The night she came home late from a drinking binge with her girlfriends and pulled the gun, she was 10 ft. and bullet proof.

                  Problem was, I was alert and also had a few years of martial arts. When the fight moved outside, and she made a move to kick my gonads thru my teeth; before she knew what hit her, she had a broken foot and her sidekick “Harvey”, the little snub nosed 38 bastard, went flying thru the dark night to rest in the woods.

                  Ole, passin’ was stretched out on the couch with the doors locked and she was still screaming like a wild woman…”you broke my damn foot”. When the sob’s stopped flowing, and all I heard was sobbing, i gave her an ultimatum.
                  You can sleep in the car or the porch swing, or I’ll put your car keys at the back door, or in one hour you can calm down and I’ll let you back in to sleep on the couch.
                  An hour later, she was apologizing and sobering up somewhat.

                  I said, “you can sleep on the couch if you are quiet as a mouse, for your last night under my roof. I warned you what would happen if you showed your pretty ass again, and now we are done”.
                  Reluctantly, the next day she put all her packed up bags in her car, and was gone, still limping of course.

                  I did retrieve “Harvey” after some searching, and returned him minus the bullets. As i was walking away from her girlfriends apartment after dropping off the gun, all I heard was…
                  ” gimme back my bullets”. That L.S. song is always a reminder of a love gone wrong, but some of the best sex ever.

                  A few years ago, I took the wife to a Journey concert for her birthday. She is ten years younger than me and a prepper from hell. She looks like she is in her late thirties instead of fifty. After we had driven the eighty miles to the big city, of which was where the ole Jekyll Hyde girl was from and had moved back to some twenty years earlier, we sat in the parking lot and just watched as everyone came pouring in.

                  The Lord works in mysterious ways, I do believe, and i also think God has a good sense of humor. As our row of cars filled up and the cars began filling up spots in the row in front of us, almost exactly in front of us, two women got out.
                  I almost fainted, there she was, ole Jekyll/Hyde B…….

                  A full twenty years since i had last seen her, but I would recognize that face and nose, anywhere. Her burnette hair was totally grey, and her body had shriveled up like a prune. She looked seventy instead of late fifties. The wife says..”that is the baby doll in those pictures”?
                  Well, it was. Hard sinful living can have that effect on people. Wifey gave me a hug and a kiss, and said, “I’m sure glad she pulled that Harvey on you”.

                  Happy Birthday, baby!

                  i don’t know….sex can be pretty damn GREAT when you join that support group i got into a year or so ago…you’ve heard of “parents without partners”?…well, it’s something LIKE that…our group is called “SEX WITHOUT PARTNERS”!

            • miss mary says:

              that’s Hyde with a “y”

          • Mac, don’t take it as an “intended” slam or insult. I said it from a neutral standpoint. But you should just own up and embrace that people know. BTW, the analysis has been confirmed by many who think it and one who used to be, uh, let’s just say a “professional.”

            🙂

        • liberals_are_a_joke says:

          are you deez nuts?

      • Betcha that the stock market will be back up tomorrow with whatever was lost today and then some.

        • slingshot says:

          RJ
          You may be right on that point. Watch how many times it happens. The swings back and forth. Watch if the swings get bigger. Then it will not be long for the downward break.

          The National debt. Are they still running the numbers? I think they stopped.
          Bond Market.
          Derivatives
          Baltic dry index
          Volatility index
          Trade deficit

          All good indicators to what is happening.

          • The news tonight was blaming the oil and gas prices for the stock market losing so much today. HaHaHa. Really.

            I was waiting for a swing below 17 and if it doesn’t
            swing in the other direction tomorrow I will be surprised.

            I am betting it will open at +116 points. Anyone else care to make a wager? The casino is open until 10.

            • Well ole buddy, looks like you were W R O N G! Market opened down and will stay down until the ppt throws the moon at this thing. this morning the news said it is the threat of an interest hike that has the market in turmoil. Never once mention the rest of the world is crashing as well.. The msm is on the “list”.

              • talon1776 says:

                Dammit .02!…lol…was gonna post the same thing to the promoters of “The all will be well again”.
                There is deep panic going on right now…
                Advice for RJ…read the tea leaves before posting.

              • Well there’s a first time for everything. Time to get some more beer as the weekend is here and Monday should be one heck of a ride.

        • smokey says:

          No one can predict the market. Anyone who tells you they can is lying.

          If you’re in the market and worried about it, get out and get some sleep and night.

        • Remind me not to use you for investing advice. Now, down 250 and crashing hard.

      • Babycatcher55 says:

        I would like to take my money out of the IRA acct, hubby says leave it in. In 30 days I will know if I was right….he started the account, so it’s basically his money, but it has doubled in 13 years…..good news is, I can live without it cuz other preps take precedence.

        • yupyup says:

          At my co there is no cash/safe haven but I took 1/2 as loan. That is one way to get to cash on your 401-K. Costs like $50 or $80 fee.

        • Genius says:

          If you had bought gold and silver 13 years ago your investment would have quadrupled. And it would be out of the hands of the sharks and safe. What you have is up for grabs by a plethora of govt. freaks. Good luck with that.

          • eppe says:

            G, 99 was a good year to buy, $270 gold, $4 silver.
            Wish I bought more.
            Being well rounded is the key.
            Buy when there is blood in the streets…

          • WhoWuddaThunkIt says:

            Genuis, yeah wudda cudda shudda. If I would have sold my house in 2006 I could have about doubled my investment in just 5 Yrs. But we all got greedy and thought it was going to the moon. Thats why you never fall in love with any assets. Buy low sell high and look for the next opportunity. Silver is a great buy here, and I think $14 dollar range was the new bottom for Silver. I bet its $20 by the end of the year. Thats a good snag on return.

      NFJT. Doubtful, as Rich99 says those sayin’ co-lapse comin’ are full of chit.

      • durangokidd says:

        If McClellan is right and his timing indicators accurate, then today’s 7% drop in the Dow is the rush to the exits … EXACTLY on cue, as today is August 20th.

        Another 3% decline tomorrow and the 10% correction I predicted last April 26th to manifest before September, is in the tank.

        Its in the Archives My Peeps. 🙂

        • J Gibbs, PhD says:

          Today’s DOW drop was 2% not 7

          • WhoWuddaThunkIt says:

            J Gibbs,… you too see DuragoKiddy has no Fn clue about economics or how to calculate percentages. Ive corrected him so many times, and he refuses to accept logic or facts. Hes an uniformed BSer. Ignore if you can anything he says about economics. He’s. Wacked out.
            ~WWTI

            • durangokidd says:

              WWHTI: You have never “corrected” me. You have always been wrong. I bet you still insist that China is not “pegging” the Yuan to the dollar.

              Google “Yuan Dollar Peg” and do some reading. You will discover that the Yuan has been pegged to the dollar since 2014 and the current changes have also been set and reset by China.

              You are the financial midget I speak of; get a fucking clue. LMFAO!!! 🙂

          • durangokidd says:

            J Gibbs: Thanks for the correction. I was quoting what I remember reading. Ok so the drop was only 2% (358 points on the Dow) with another 400 points today, or 2.35%; but right on schedule, according to McClelland.

            The rout is on.

            We know the markets are manipulated. My guess is the the PTB are allowing the drop NOW to try to stave off a much bigger decline later and a self fulfilling prophecy in September, so we may get that 10% correction yet. 🙂

        • WhoWuddaThunkIt says:

          Dkiddy. Did you figure out the Yuan is Not pegged to the dollar yet? Bwhahaha.

          Cause if it was pegged, as you claim in the Archives over amd over, the exchange rate would never change between the 2 currencies. Which is simply not true.

          Even a dumb pig falls in the mud on occssion if they stumble around enough mud puddles. Clock is right twice a day ect ect.. we can only believe about 20% of what you say. On economics about 2% of what you say is true.

          ~WWTI

          • durangokidd says:

            The yuan is PEGGED to the dollar and ALLOWED to move within a specified range, and only within that specified range. Recently China has PEGGED it DOWN (two or three times) & then UP to move that range. These manipulations were not market driven.

            That you insist on doubling down on your error again and again and again only serves to magnify your stupidity. Now I understand why you lost $30,000 as a “day trader” (ouch!) you don’t even know the BASICS. LMFAO!!! 🙂

      • NunyaBidness.com says:

        So you think Rich99 knows more than those people?

        laughable.

        • PO'd Patriot says:

          Nunya…Nope……maybe……who the hell knows? This one says this and someone else says they’re right. One thing’s for sure is, we’re headed for a world of hurt. Besta luck.

          • Woogie says:

            Dow futures are down -76 points and market trading is a very low 16850 this morning, and gold is up again. Seems to be no rebound so far this Friday morning.

            This is blamed on a number of things on the business news networks like China, the global debt and no paybacks, over production, etc., except panic. Marketers are begging people to buy “low” now, but there are no buyers, so if you are selling, there may be no buyers for your stock until it goes much lower.

      Remember our friends in Cyprus? It seems the luxury goods have departed the beautiful island but the money is starting to slowly trickle back in. We are just past the two year mark. Where money is concerned, reputation and confidence is everything. Part of me blames the Cypriot people for allowing the government to cock up the books so bad and get them so far into debt (as I blame ourselves). Part of me is enraged the government and the bank management lied and said they would not nick the accounts THE DAY BEFORE THEY IN FACT COMMITTED THIS ACT.

      1% dickhead cant figure out why young people aren’t grateful for the shit jobs he offers.

      Maybe it’s because we are up to our eyes in fucking debt from the college ripoff jerkoff and the only jobs we can get are shit jobs with a dickhead boss bitching at us to get the most work out of us for the shittiest wages.

        Acid Etch

        I got out of HS in the mid 1970s and I was, along with my friends pretty confidant that we would end up at one of the below companies. Here is their roster and approximate number of employees. All the below were within 20 miles or less.

        DuPont (3 facilities) 9000
        Mobil Oil 1500
        Texaco 800
        BP 800
        Hercules Chemical 30
        Monsanto Chemical 250
        BF Goodrich 400
        Shell Chemical 400

        Total 13,180

        Today
        DuPont (1 facility) 550
        Mobil Oil (sold twice) 400
        Texaco CLOSED
        BP CLOSED
        Hercules 30
        Monsanto (sold) 250
        Shell Chemical CLOSED

        Total 1230

        This is a 93% reduction in “good jobs at good wages”.Where did I hear that before?

      • TnAndy says:

        Welcome to the real world. Bosses have always been that way. Don’t like it, start your own business and find out what you are really worth.

        As for college debt….sorry, you folks borrowed it, often to have pizza and beer and a nice car, and a useless degree….so suck it up and pay it off. I got a masters and my wife a doctorate, and we never got a single grant, scholarship, or borrowed a dime to do it…and there was no family money…both of us come from single working moms.

My nephew took out a 30 yr loan mortgage basically to payoff a dental school degree, and if his hands are not in somebodys mouth hes not making any money.

      The water wars continue. Those of you who live on the east coast and think the water wars wont affect you can leave this site cause you aint no prepper.

      Too high a water table can bring just as many problems as living on the mesa. When the toilet wont flush your turd cause theres too much backpressure in the septic tank. Don’t tell me groundwater cant get in the septic tank, youre an idiot. When your tap water is sludge cause so much groundwater runoff seeps into the well the filter cant process it fast enough to meet the house’s demands.

          question

          What kind of shelf life do dry uncooked bags of rice and beans have? They have been left in their original plastic bags, and placed in a large Rubbermaid container away from moisture and mice. Didn’t know if you have to worry about any kind of mold or anything like that, or if the beans could look good on the outside but be bad on the inside. I ask because I’ve had this batch for probably 5 years.

            Rice turns dark yellow, but still edible. I read before that in an emergency you don’t need to cook rice to be edible, just cover them with water the same height as the rice in the pot and let sit for 4 hours, it should be good to eat. Beans on the other hand was a real pain. After a while they turn rock hard, I soaked for a full day and they didn’t rehydrate, I tried to cook them and they were still hard and stale. The only thing that worked to make them taste good was using a pressure cooker.

    • passinwiththewind says:

      You got that right.

      We will now see if the brain child economists predictions come true.

      For those just tuning in, the prediction was that once the DOW, goes below 17,000, the sell off would begin across the board and continue.

      Now I have no horse in this race because I cashed out all my paper a couple years ago. Prior to that when gold was 15 to 16 hundred, we cashed that in, plus some silver. Oh how nice all that now looks in the form of preps. Beansbulletsbandaids, don’t seem all that bad when a life’s work is held by banksters and brokers; and the value of those pieces of paper is crumbling in the firesafe.

      The warnings were put out, but the people were too selfish and greedy to sell/cash in. My brother kept putting off selling some stock that he had been building on for thirty five years. Last month it hit an all time high and I suggested he cash in some. Not the whole quarter million, but some.

      His response, “When it grows to another five bucks a share i will sell some”. I said what if it never does and when the shtf this Fall, it goes to half?

      He said…”it will never happen in my lifetime”. Well, all those years of robbing God, while claiming to be a christian, may come back to bite him in his 58 year old ass. Tough titty said the kitty, when the milk went dry.

      When he looses it all (90% would seem like it all), and he could, if he holds out for a return to last months high, he will be crying like a baby.

      Many will commit suicide. Many will kill and be killed. The reckoning is about to begin people. God has removed His Holy Hand of Protection from the Nation of USSAG.

              Last year a couple lowlife distant relatives pulled into a hay field near the house in their van. They thought it was late enough that I would be asleep, but i had the lights off and heard the vehicle. I slipped out the door with my binocs, and eased out the drive and over the hill just enough to get a visual.

              They are thieves and were up to no good, but it wasn’t my land so i couldn’t rightly confront them and put some rock salt loads on their asses, so I went back to the house and got the ole magnum deer rifle and chunked her full. I slipped back out there close enough to hear music in the van, and sent five hot loads about four feet over the roof and then whipped out the 44 mag pistola in case they were stupid enough to start shooting back.

              That van left out spinning grass and dirt and almost turned over flying out the road. The next day they slipped through the woods, to Dad’s house nearby, and siphoned gas out of his tractor while he was at church. Pieces of shit thieves.

    If the Great Depression and the 2008 housing collapse is any example, a deflationary death spiral takes months. 2008 took years for the housing market to return to some semblance of normal. There are still stricken parts of the country despite Obama claims of recovery.

    • Kulafarmer says:

    • The Old Coach says:

      The stock market drop is usually a trailing indicator – the layoffs, business closings and deflation are already happening. The deflation in fact has been going on since 2008, although they like to call it “deleveraging”. Only reason the price drops have held off so long is that the Fed (at the behest of Congress and the Halfrican) have been generating trainloads of new “money” to counteract it.

    Well, it looks like the nut cases writing posts on this site may get what they want, a stock market meltdown leading to an economic collapse. I too believe there is an economic and financial crisis coming and have been prepping, but I don’t want it to happen. There could be hunger, disease, homelessness, and violence on a large scale not including the possible loss of our freedoms. But apparently many fruit cakes show they want it that way, regardless of the resulting suffering. When trying to determine why I can only conclude how stale, and empty, and meaningless their lives must be. Not to mention their delusion and ignorance. Even the most prepared of us prepped are going to have a rough existence. All they can say is they’re going to shoot it out, or hunt for food, or beans and bullets, or some other nonsense; all these will be the first to go. It shows an appalling lack of organization, foresight, and a true understanding of the situation. Oh, I forgot, they’re too tough, they don’t need that. I have read the Chinese are going to invade, that FEMA is going to put us in concentration camps, or it will be like Mad Max. Now some spastics are saying we are going to get hit by giant asteroids. It is apparent all everyone is doing is repeating anything someone puts out there. I can tell you for a fact and can prove it that some of these stories were posted on the internet just to see how far they would go and how many people would actually believe it. The more absurd the farther it went! Have fun and enjoy the misery you want inflicted on society.

          • passinwiththewind says:

            I know it’s a moot point with you wwti, to explain anything having to do with God and humanity, but for the sake of your question and for some that have an open mind…here goes.

            What does “born again” mean?

            The KJV translators did a poor job of bringing forth the true meaning. The old time preachers did an even worse job, and it has stuck like glue through the centuries just like the pre-trib “rapture” doctrine.

            I am gonna give the short version here. There are three Heaven and Earth Ages, plus a 1000 year Millennial Reign.
            In the first H & E age, all souls/children of God, were created, including Angels and Cherubs. Satan was/is a cherub (Ezekiel 28:14, not in the same category as Arch Angels like Michael and Gabriel, but with powers and authority.

            Anyways, when Satan rebelled and fell, he took a third of Gods children. In order to set things straight, God decided to have all his children…billions… be re-born through flesh bodies, innocent and ignorant/no memory, of all that transpired in the First Age.
            Why? So each could make up their mind, through free will, who they would choose to follow, Him or Satan.
            God was saddened to do this, make spirit into flesh/organic, but the alternative was to kill a third of His children/creation that rebelled. Ask yourself, how hard would it be to kill just one of your kids? Evidently not that hard if you have never seen them or talked with them. Millions have done it.

            Anyways, the born again part, in the manuscripts was, born from above, and “through” the waters. Not in baptismal waters/river, but through the bag of waters as in the womb. Get it? Born innocent, in order to have a true chance at eternity, but with temptations from the Devil, to be tried and tested of whom you truly follow.

            I can’t make it any clearer, but the time of repenting and getting to that day of salvation is getting closer with each passing day. When all souls have been born through the bag of waters, from above, then the time of the end is near. This generation will live to see that day. That is a biblical fact.
            It may be seven years and it may be 17 years, but it will happen and there will be “NO” flesh born ever again, even through the Millennium, when all have been born again, and that has nothing to do with salvation, except it must come first before the salvation part of,accepting/ being born again/salvation from death of the soul, with a new repentive heart.
            Like it, lump it, or sling it out the window, I don’t give a shit what argument you or anyone makes, this is truth and it’s biblical, and in time “all” will come to see truth.
            I don’t care if people judge me, cause the only two Judges i am concerned with have sanctified me as a flesh sinner and from the first age when they knew me as a spirit man.

            • Well you do have the part about us being spirits or deities if you will born into human flesh. There in lies the rub with the bible and christianity which took this and twisted and perverted that knowledge with what we have today.

              Death releases us from human form and we become these spirits once again. Some will reincarnate on earth again (falling for the soul trap if you will) and still fewer will remain in spirit for and become one with the god/life source again.

    • TheGuy says:

      Oh come on you know why. I mean, do I have to draw a map?

      When you feel like your concerns are not being addressed, and are not only being actively ignored, but also actively pursued in 180 degree fashion (aka the shit you want to get better is deliberately getting worse…) and there’s clearly nothing you can do about it…

      Then you fantasize about that situation ending.

      NOTE that I said FANTASIZE. In huge capital letters. It’s normal, it happens again and again throughout history, it don’t mean shit.

      You think anyone really actually WANTS these horrific consequences? They WANT people in control to listen and for things to get progressively more positive.

      Also, there’s a fear factor here, fear of crap getting worse and worse and it feels good to air it out, much like it feels good on TV when you find out the monster is really a dumb as fuck zombie that’s easy to deal with.

      None of this is real, give me a break already. I mean by that, none of the “wishing for it to happen” is real. That’s like Charles Manson shit. That represents like half a percent of the population.

      Fred:
      I pray to GOD every day that this mess will not happen.
      The problem I have is the greed and laziness by the people that I see in this country today.
      And a government that allows the killing of babies, the destruction of the family by gay marriage, the over regulating of the people rights, the wanton destruction of Christianity.
      Soon or later we are going to have to pay for these thing call it karma, call it Gods will or just bad luck, call it what ever you want , but it is coming and we are going to have to pay for our mess that we let happen.
      It’s not his fault, her fault , your fault or my fault it is OUR FAULT.

        N Reb. You just answered your own response. It is the lazy who sit around and pray. Praying wishy washy hopey pray never solved a single problem other than by coincidence or happenstance. Get off your bottom and make change. You want to predict the future? Go create it. Wishy hopey pray is for suckers and the lazy peoples excuse. Like stupid phrases like. Well it Gods will… One of the dumbest respinses I ever heard was from my neice who said. “God will provide for me.” If she wasnt family Ida about slap the shit out of her numbskull brain. Its lazy people talk dumbed down religion thats killing our country. You-who dumbass, get off your ass and get a better job to provide for your family. Of course she was the Oops child my dumb sister had in college by mistake when she dating the dumbass total loser lazy brother in law / religious born again idiot. Acorns not fall far from the tree. Hes dead now and my sister finally admitted he was such a waste of time. No shit sherlock. You wasted half your life chained to a dumbass anchor who loved religion to oppress my sister. You just cant fix Idiots.

      Fred, I see where you are coming from. I do my research on these claims and most of them are phony which reminds me not to believe everything you read on the internet. IF you point out these false reports, you will get attacked by the fringe, even here.

      BTW, false fear-mongering reports are published because it makes fools fearful and makes money on the blog’s click ads and sponsors of survival stuff. I learned this trick when I had a website business but I didn’t use these tricks to deceive. It’s all about luring in customers and making money from fear off of them. It’s not really to see what they can get away with. But I must say Michael Snyder’s Economic Collapse reports are mostly accurate and he sincerely wants people to be warned and prepared.

    • mark says:

      It seems some people are not aware of the plan to enslave the world, known as the new world order. Something those in power have been working on for decades, to the demise of America and all nation states. World government, world religion, world currency, the three tall tell signs of the times, as written about thousands of years ago and found in the Bible. So for those who are clueless to the base reality of our day and age, sad, it’s all freely available with a little research.

      Fred, you mock things that are well documented. No one wants to see what’s coming, other than those who have been planning it. Most here who are aware, prepare, because they know the enemy is more than willing to take the world down to it’s knee’s, or perhaps kill off ninety percent of the population (one of their stated goals as etched in stone in the Georgia Guidestones).

      So to act as we are mongering fear, is insanely naive to the true reality of our day.

  17. The myth The Legend says:

    Good post Fred,
    Fear porn is at an all time high. The key to success when the financial markets go south is to make sure you have the correct types of materials to provide for you and your family. Don’t pull out a gun and start stealing other people’s items. We should consider forming co-ops and dealing in barter, all be it some other form of currency will surely take center stage. I believe in the goodness of the people in my community and know we will be fine. Start looking at the mirror each day and ask yourself are you going to be a cause or a solution.

  18. aljamo says:

    Whatever happens it’s obvious that those who hold most of the wealth will continue to hold it after any type of financial crash. The have nots will have even less if that’s possible. That’s the name of the game, big dog eats little dog. The next level down from dirt poor must be death.

    • Texasprepper says:

      Depends on the type of wealth. If it’s in cash, stocks, bonds, etc., they’re going to be just as poor as the guy with the EBT card. If they have commodities, gold, silver, brass, lead, copper, food, water, etc., as well as creative skills such as the ability to make or repair needed items they will probably come out better than they started. You could see the rebirth of the blue collar manufacturing middle class, farmers, ranchers, and the small businesses if this truly is an economic collapse. People with those skills will be more able to adjust quickly and fill the needs of others. The “Academic” that has no real skills will be the biggest losers.

    • Rebel in Idaho says:

      Actually if you look at previous stock market crashes, 1929 in particular, the wealth disparity was less afterwards. Say everyone loses half their wealth, if you had zero or very little you’re still at zero whereas the wealthy are now a lot closer to you in nominal terms.

      Remember the old Alabama song Song of the South? “Someone said wall street fell, we were so poor we couldn’t tell.”

  19. ImmortalinChrist says:

    “And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,”

    Many Americans refuse to believe that an economic collapse is right in front of them. They hear the warnings, but they insist on believing and relying in the routines of their lives which seem to continue on. But the regular routines of “life” are soon to end and they will see that their blinding routines couldn’t save them from the reality of judgment that will be upon them. America, prepare for judgment:

    3 Now is the end come upon thee, and I will send mine anger upon thee, and will judge thee according to thy ways, and will recompense upon thee all thine abominations.

    4 And mine eye shall not spare thee, neither will I have pity: but I will recompense thy ways upon thee, and thine abominations shall be in the midst of thee: and ye shall know that I am the Lord. (Ezekiel 7:3, 4)

    “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.”

  20. aljamo says:

    Obviously this nation’s whole existence depends on continual warfare. Killing, raping and pillaging are the government specialty. Trillions spent arming the world for mass destruction, all to benefit corporate and banking leeches. We are now in the phase where the masses of people are unwanted and highly disposable. No dissent allowed. No truth allowed. The U.S. will treat it’s citizens like Saudi Arabia treats their citizens, barbaric with an iron fist, and mini nukes if necessary.

  25. Hunkerdown says:

    You are correct by saying most Americans are more worried about their own stock portfolio than the DOW in general. However, the underlying problem with the statement, no offense, is that most Americans don’t own stock. I don’t. What most Americans own is lots and lots of suffocating debt. I don’t. But, again, most American’s do in fact own MEGADEBT, especially when compared to their annual incomes: Which by the way, is an income that can easily exit stage left and never return, as in prolonged unemployment or never ending financially anemic underemployment. With that said, bear markets follow bull markets and vis a vis. It’s the natural ebb and flow of all things monetary. They fluctuate, sometimes a little, sometimes a lot. So if the market “crashes”, we’ll live to fight another day. That too is natural; painful, but natural. The no deposit, no return “Killer” for the economy is when people, en mass, that are addicted to debt, commonly referred to as easy credit, are denied the right to feed their addiction through more incessant borrowing, by whatever sign here please venue they choose to continue their enslavement, then the economy will not only go to sleep, as in hibernating bear, it will completely tear itself apart and sink, as in “Titanic”. Stats show and prove no less, than nine out of ten people have already hopelessly sold themselves into life long debt slavery before they are thirty years of age. That is a lot of people and a lot of IOUs. In fact, beyond words of description. Like it or not though, debt, in copious amounts with likewise copious amounts of interest, penalties, and fees is the glowing white hot afterburner that drove America into the stratosphere of opulence, and when people no longer have that taken for granted assess to the “credit god of prosperity”, the economic engine will grind to an abrupt halt: Overnight. And when it does, brought about by a plunging DOW, or whatever malady is the crash and burn recipe of the day, the Government at that point will no longer have the money to put on the EBT, SNAP cards, and other modes of welfare exchange to allow the so very incorrectly called ‘poor people’ to purchase food, and then, in the main stream media fed theaters of their own minds, the forever downtrodden ‘poor’ will seek vengeance for their self inflicted lot in life by rioting and burning the cities to the ground, before advancing their razing pilgrimage to urban and rural areas. Couple rioting with the trucking industry, which borrows money everyday, no exceptions, via the banks and COMDATA, to purchase fuel to deliver food and it is “Game Over”. Referencing food, the meals you consume travel an average of 1500 miles before arriving at the table. That is an eye opener as to how venerable we are to a draconian food shortage (and anarchy). America can recover, and has recovered from many financial reversals: It can never recover from the denial of more, bigger, and longer lasting debt, because America is debt. Debtmerica, if you will. Debt, by spending tomorrow’s money on today’s “mostly frivolous wants”, generates the tax revenues that keep the lathered in self pity Downtrodden Hordes, who refuse to self propel their own gainful livelihood, from burning down their taxpayer funded homes (and ours). Alas, without credit we have no debt. Without debt, we have no food for the poor, middle class, or wealthy. And soon, through lack of funds, when the banks and other lending institutions turn the credit spigots counterclockwise, credit will die, therefore Debtmerica will die, and so will we; both figuratively and literally. Again, at that date time group on the clock and calendar it is forever: GAME OVER! Period.

    • The Old Coach says:

      Far more Americans “own” stock that you realize.

      Pension funds are necessarily heavily invested in stocks.

      Many, many 401k accounts are invested in stocks.

      Otherwise, the post is pretty much right.

      • Hunkerdown says:

        @The Old Coach: The latest stats say that about 50% of Americans employed in the private sector have 401k type retirement accounts. Those accounts can and have virtually disappeared overnight as in 2007-09. However, less than 10% of Americans actually ‘play’ the stock market. Debt remains both the problem and the solution for this ill contrived economic model we have today. Either way I do appreciate your reply and wish the very best to you and your family because there is a complete meltdown of our society approaching fast. God bless and have great weekend.

  26. Asshat says:

    i work for a major national motor freight carries who’s name I won’t mention. I learned from my boss who is the manager of our service center. We have little meetings before we start working. Here’s what he told us. He said business is down across the board for our company about 10percent. He said they put the official number at 8 percent. Now he put up the bid sheet and the way the bids are decided is projected workload. He said other terminals are doing layoffs but we are not at this time. I’m not in the first ten to be laid off. But I looked at the bids and there most likely will be no overtime at all at least for 6 months. Freight logistics is a good indicator of economic health. I’m not picking up much freight. If I don’t pick up it can’t be billed and there is nothing to move. It still comes in from all over to be delivered. But business is slow for sure. Summer is the time when it picks up and this year it didn’t really at all.winter is always the slow time so it could be collapse coming. I would get whatever you need if you don’t have it yet seriously. Put it on a credit card if you got to. I’m not talking getting all the shtf toys you want either just the no bullshit stuff it takes to git er dun.

    • Hunkerdown says:

      Asshat: Thanks for the post, the trucking industry is the only indicator that’s really engraved in stone. If you ain’t hauling then there is a very real problem. Please answer this question since you are directly involved in the industry. “Is there still a truck driver shortage”? Is there any freight at all coming out of California these days? Ok, that’s two questions. I googled the Petro truckstop in Wheeler Ridge, California and the parking lot was virtually empty. Thanks and God bless.

    If the US economy comes to a halt, if the USD is unwanted both foreign and domestic the US Military will be underfunded and deployed at home to suppress potential insurrection.

Make extreme conservation a way of life by choice. Keep your $ yours. Don’t worry about what the markets are doing. Worry about what you can do to keep your$ from being stolen from you by banks and corporations. I’m gonna burn my $ before I die so no one can get it get your own $ that goes for my own family too. I will be doing them a favor they will have to get their own cake. This keeps people from getting lazy.

    • The problem with this is that most people’s incomes are tied to other people purchasing goods and services. Even chiropractors, dentists, etc need repeat business to stay afloat.

    In other news, children will now have “Parent 1” and “Parent 2” instead of a mommy and a daddy, according to Tennessee’s Administrative Office of the Courts. Shortly after the Supreme Court redefined marriage, the state’s Office of the Courts revised its documents. A spokesperson for the courts confirmed to me that the words “Mother” and “Father” had been replaced by the terms “Parent 1” and “Parent 2.”

    I was alerted to the gender-neutral parenting documents by Kendra Armstrong, a family law attorney in Memphis and one of my longtime readers. “Why are heterosexual parents having their rights violated?” she asked. “So now it’s improper and inappropriate in a court of law to refer to a parent as a mother and a father? Cited from Townhall.com, Todd Starnes, Aug. 18 2015, http://townhall.com/columnists/toddstarnes/2015/08/18/tennessee-courts-replace-mother-and-father-with-parent-1-parent-2-n2040457

    Note: It is highly discriminatory to consider someone a “parent” – implying inequality and boundary setting. And given that we don’t want to be speciesist, what about just “Older entity 1” and “Older entity 2?”

    XTRA CREDIT:
    The University of New Hampshire recently published a “Bias-Free Language Guide,” which “is meant to invite inclusive excellence in (the) campus community” Terms such as “American,” “homosexual,” “illegal alien,” “Caucasian,” “mothering,” “fathering” and “foreigners” are deemed “problematic.” Other problematic terms include “elders,” “senior citizen,” “overweight,” “speech impediment,” “dumb,” “sexual preference,” “manpower,” “freshmen,” “mailman” and “chairman.” For now, these terms are seen as problematic. If the political correctness police were permitted to get away with it, later they would bring disciplinary action against a student or faculty member who used the terms. The offender would be required to attend diversity training, the leftist equivalent of communist re-education camps (cf.

That said starting a new Great Depression could VERY easily morph into a world war, a whole different kettle of fish. I believe TPTB in our society would start one in short order if we go into depression. We might win it or we might not. Not sure if WIN will be an operative word. Can any thinking person really feel much confidence with leaders like Merkel and Obummer going against Putin and the latest Mandarin running China. That’s excluding the Middle East which will be glass if the balloon goes up.
