    Bloomberg Warns of Riots: “The Public Knows There’s Something Wrong In This Country” *Audio Interview*

    Very few Americans have ever thought about the prospect of an economic depression or collapse so severe that it could result in riots like those we’ve seen in the middle east and Europe over the last year.

    But while most of our countrymen have had their heads in the sand, alternative news media has been warning about the possibility of civil unrest, riots, violence and even martial law if the economy continues on its unabating downward trajectory.

    It seems that the realities of what we face are starting to reach the mainstream, as Mayor Bloomberg of New York recently noted on WOR Newstalk 710:

    The public is not happy. The public knows there’s something wrong in this country. And there is. The public does not know what, necessarily, or disagrees on what, doesn’t know how to fix it, or disagrees on what the fix should be.

    The bottom line is they are upset.

    Economic disasters tend not to be an overnight thing.

    The damage to this country from our immigration policy will last for decades. The damage to a generation that can’t find jobs will go on for many, many years. It all sort of us — there’s no one event…

    We are really making ourselves have less of a future than we could have.

    You have a lot of kids graduating college that can’t find jobs. That’s what happened in Cairo. That’s what happened in Madrid. You don’t want those kinds of riots here.

    …There’s no overnight solution. You create these problems over long periods of time…

    While we disagree with Mayor Bloomberg’s approach to a host of issues, we agree with his view that riots will hit the streets of America if we can’t resolve our economic, fiscal, political, social and monetary problems.

    Unemployment is a big part of it, but it won’t be the only driver of civil unrest. For now, if you’re unemployed you have assistance in the form of modern day soup lines – food stamps, welfare, government health care, social security and rental assistance. It’s when there’s either no more money to send checks to those without jobs, or, when the prices of goods rise so high that it effectively cuts subsistence checks by 50% or more, that we will see Americans rise up in the streets.

    In our view, it’s a foregone conclusion. It’s is no longer a question of if civil unrest will happen. It’s only a question of when.

    There is no easy fix and we’re going to experience some serious pain one way or another. We suspect Mr. Bloomberg and many of our elected officials already know this. This is why our government is conducting military exercises designed specifically for large-scale economic breakdown and civil unrest, and this is why they are arming our local police forces with assault weapons, tanks, and drones.

          HEADS UP>>> RIOTS MAY BEGIN THIS WEEKEND AT NFL GAMES

          NFL wants pat-downs from ankles up at all stadiums

          FK EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS!!! TIME TO SAY NO!!!!!!

          “”The NFL wants all fans patted down from the ankles up this season to improve fan safety.

          Under the new “enhanced” pat-down procedures, the NFL wants all 32 clubs to search fans from the ankles to the knees as well as the waist up. Previously, security guards only patted down fans from the waist up while looking for booze, weapons or other banned items.

          The stricter physical screening policy impacts the 16.6 million fans expected to attend live regular season NFL games this season. The more thorough searches will spell longer lines for ticket-holding fans seeking entry to games. It’s sure to raise the ire of some fans who consider it an invasion of privacy.

          The NFL recommended the new guidelines before the kickoff of the 2011 season which coincided with the 10th anniversary of 9/11. The league hopes fans will be “patient,” says spokesman Brian McCarthy, and arrive earlier to games to avoid long, punishing lines.”"

      I believe it depends on where you live. If you live in a big city like New York, Chicago, etc., then you can expect riots. Gerald Celente has said to expect riots over and over again. People are beginning to get very desperate, the welfare checks aren’t stretching far enough, there’s no jobs and it’s getting worse. I’m glad we moved out of a large town – we’re now in the country. Even the homeless and indigents have left for more lucrative places. I’m not worried about where I live, riots are highly unlikely.

            “That there have been some, calling themselves “anarchists,” who have engaged in violence on behalf of their political ambitions, is not to be denied. Nor can we overlook the provocateuring occasionally engaged in by undercover policemen — operating under the guise of “anarchists” — to justify harsh reprisals against political protests. But to condemn a philosophic viewpoint because a few wish to corrupt its meaning for their narrow advantage is no more justifiable than condemning Christianity because a man murders his family and defends his acts on the grounds “God told me to do it!”"…

        There are moles in every organization of people that are there only to incite violence against the corp on behalf of the corp.

        That is the only way it has to hide the truth. Make the protest violent so the violence hides the reason for the protest to begin with.

        You can bet when the riots start, all violence will be said to have started with the rioters. You will hear nothing of the reason for the protest, nor will they be televising the misconduct of the riot “police”.

        The revolution will not be peaceful, but it is not because the people seek violence. The PTB need violence from the people to make themselves look better, so violence from the people they shall get.

        Let’s hope the unintended consequences work in our favor to end it quickly and decisively.

          GC, Your first two lines are exactly on target. I don’t believe the reporting of the riots will be lengthy, because it won’t be safe for the news media and the main stream media (without a bailout) won’t have enough reporters to cover all the violence. It’ll be selective and orchestrated filming/documenting, akin to hollywood.

          The revolution won’t be peaceful, you are right. Because people defending themselves will be called terrorist. Defending one’s self, family and possessions will be deemed violence. The rioters and looters will be classified as victims. Wierd, huh?

          Stay in His grace, praying as a priority, and stay preppared.

I buy a box of ammo every paycheck also.I never thought I would have the need to own a rifle since I do not hunt, now I have five. My wife and I go to the range as often as possible to be proficient in their use. I started doing this four months ago, and as far as I’m concerned I’m way behind. My friend’s and family think were nuts, but they could be Sheep. I was always a person that could smell the crap way before I saw the outhouse. I honestly believe that there is an outhouse up ahead.

      • Mike, I’ve always been into guns but for the last 5 years I’ve been purchasing something every couple months. Oh, sure, its a hobby but I try to stick to some sort of plan that will benefit the SHTFPlan. I try to stay within several calibers. 22lr, 223, 30-30, 30-06, 44Mag. I do the same with buying ammo. I try to buy guns that are multi-use. What good is a really heavy barrelled 223 good for? Target shooting? I try to purchase stuff that can be used for both defense and hunting while at the same time is tradeable.

        I know if feels like you are behind, however, you are so far ahead of 95% (like Sam not sam says). Maybe more like 99%. In fact, even if you just started today, the fact that you have come to the realization that you need to do *SOMETHING* puts you ahead of the sheople crowd.

        EVERYBODY LISTEN: For just a couple hundred dollars you can ball all the food you need to keep you alive. A few gallons of cooking oil, some 50lb bags of wheat and corn. Now, I said it would keep you *ALIVE* but maybe not keep you happy. Happy is maybe not necessary for whats coming.

        Hitting the range is good too. I just recently signed up for a range. Most of my friends are like, huh? Why? (I have 50/100/200yd ranges in my front yard) I did it so I could meet people.I finding a lot of people like Mike, above, that know something is up and they’re getting ready. If you’re not a gun person and you think you can survive this without one, you’re fooling yourself. I recommend that you have at least a 12 gauge shotgun, a 22 rifle and a 9mm pistol and that you be proficient in their use. …and you also need about 500 rounds of ammo for each one. You want specifics? I’ll give them. Minimalists pay attention. Here is a package that will just get you by:

        12gauge NEF single shot. ($125)
        10 boxes of Super-X #6 shot: ($99)

        Ruger 10/22: ($229)
        2 525 round bulk packs: ($50)
        2 30 round mags: ($40)

        Hi-Point C9, 9mm pistol: ($150)
        500 rounds of Winchester White box ammo: ($110)

        Take them out, use them, at the range, at a friends place. You’ll be glad you did. Us “Nuts” are the ones that don’t go crying to non-existent police when trouble comes knocking. By the time you’ll need these, there won’t be anyone to call. You’ve got three guns that can be used for self defense that range from awesome (12 gauge shotgun) to fair (Ruger 10/22, 30 round magazine) and two that can be used for hunting. 12 gauge for many things, squirrel, rabbit, birds, etc. Same with the 10/22. (The 9mm could be used for hunting but you’d have to be really desperate …and really close.)

        There, there you have it. Its my three gun sermon, signed, sealed, delivered. Take it or leave it, or improve on it.

          NetRanger has good advice. You can also get a 50lb bag of rice at the bulk store for under $20.

          Here are two short stories for you to consider regarding range time – Last month I witnessed folks at the pistol range that could not hit a life size target 3 feet in front of them! They might as well have had a baseball bat. Flinching and jerking the trigger, anticipating the recoil, closing their eyes, being afraid of the bang…all things that practice solve. In a stress situation, without practice to the point of proficiency, folks like that will get waxed.

          Two weeks ago I was at the rifle range with my latest used rifle purchase in .308 caliber to bore-sight the scope. After the 20th round firing it started to get painful, after the 30th round I wish I had quite after the 15th round. The next day I felt like I had been kicked in the shoulder separation by a Clydesdale. My shoulder still hurts but not as bad. The point I’m making about that is that there will be many macho shooters of high power/large bore rifles that will only last 25 rounds before they just can’t shoulder their weapon to fire one more round.

          If you have a high power/big bore long gun consider installing a super duper recoil pad or get a recoil pad that you wear over your shoulder so that repeated discharges don’t take you out of the fight.

          Practice makes perfect. Gun Control means being able to hit your target. If you’re a weapons newbie, get a revolver because they don’t jam, or practice rack and tap drills over and over until clearing a jam takes no thought, same goes for semi-auto rifles.

          Hope for the best, prepare for the worst.

            When I was married I bought the wife a Browning A bolt, micro-medallion in .308. To get her started I loaded up some 110 grain bullets with a minimum charge of 4064. We kept progressing until she was comfortable with a 165 grain Grand Slam coming out at around 2650 fps. The point is if you reload you can tone it down until you get used to it.

            I don’t believe we are going to be in situations where we are trying to shoot a hundred rounds or so out of a bolt action rifle unless we are fighting a military force. If that’s the case a pack of Marlboros and a bottle of Jack may be more useful.

            I don’t know what kind of rifle you have but that little .308 can reach out and touch someone a long ways off. Get familiar with your rifle then you can shoot once from a long ways off, make it count and then get the hell outta there.

            Mirbach, are you shooting a bolt or gas/piston operated gun? I own several in .308, M1A and AR platforms and they don’t hurt when I run 200-300 rounds at the range. If they’re punishing you that bad, look into the 223/556 calibre, cause that gun you’re shooting will definitely make you flinch by anticipating the shot and pain. I was a range instructor for several years and have seen this happen many times.

            Mirbach

            If you can’t take the kick of your big bore rifle, take it to a gunsmith and have a muzzle break installed or better yet lazor cut. did this to my 7mm mag and made a huge differance. I am a smallframed man weighing in a 145 Lbs and with the laser cut muzzle break can shoot 40 to 50 rounds with my 7 mag or the 30-06. One more thing is I have to agree with netranger if you don’t have guns you will not make it. So stock up now and don’t forget lots and lots of ammo…

            It is an SHR 970 bolt, made to be a 0.3 MOA rifle. The original butt pad was just a piece of hard rubber that I have since replaced with a Sims’ Limbsaver recoil pad which has made an amazing amount of difference.

            It is my long range weapon and I sure don’t plan to fire more than a few rounds at a time. The point of the story was a caution for those that plan to use a high power weapon as their primary defense weapon for Zones 2 and up without taking the precaution of reducing the kick, especially from a bolt action. In a semi-auto a great deal of the kick energy is used to blow back the bolt and cycle the action so they inherently kick less.

            Yes – a muzzle break would reduce the kick, but wouldn’t it also reduce the delivered projectile energy? Could you imagine firing a Barrett 50BMG without a muzzle break? (Yes – but only once!)

            Practice with your weapons using either hand and sighting with either eye. You may be glad you did.

          Some would argue with your choices (I prefer a repeating shotgun), but they are a good basic set, not too expensive, and certainly beat a blank.

          I think the NEF shotgun is the latest incarnation of the H&R. They seem to be bulletproof. My 10/22 is about as idiot proof as a gun can be. I have never had a Hi-Point, but have experience with other inexpensive pistols (Tokarev). You don’t get all the nice frills, but it always goes bang when asked.

          You are right about the police. In a crisis they either circle the wagons to protect the government or turn on ordinary people and harass them ala N.O.

          It is very obvious that this is not a “normal” economic downturn. At best, USA will scrape along the bottom for the foreseeable future.

            Don’t count on it “always going bang” with the cheapies, you don’t have to have a $1000 pistol, but do you really want to trust your life to a throw down gun. You get what you pay for, remember that when it goes “click” instead of bang.

        The way I look at it is we have to be right once, they have to be right every single day.

        We feel crazy at times too. Even if you believe everything you read, there isn’t any way to confirm that it will happen. But we feel it in our gut, and if we’re wrong, well we can survive being embarrassed.

        On the (now rare) occasions I try to get family or friends on board, I tell them this is insurance. That’s all. The difference is those other types of insurance only protect our things, where this protects our lives.

        Bingo, Sam I Am. Bloomberg is a fanatic and obsessed with disarming the American law-abiding citizens. So are the rest of his ethnic kin – who’ve been behind nearly ALL of the gun control laws and legislation since day number one.

        This is part of the reason why the American KGB is now trying to demonize WHITE males as the new ‘Al Qaeda’ – because White males are who Bloomberg and his kinsmen fear most. The frustrating problem for them, though, is that White males are so dog-gone law abiding and we don’t normally give them any excuse to come after us – so, they have to resort to crap like the Gun Running scandal in order to produce fake evidence that they can then try to use to justify more gun laws.

      Lemme see…

      World food prices are at an all time high – 101% higher than ten years ago, and have jumped 30% in the last year alone.

      A record 14.5% of Americans are on Food stamps.

      Due to flooding, droughts, wildfires, etc. the supply of food is lower than usual.

      Due to more buying power developing nations are asking for more meat (which BTW is VERY expensive to produce) and other foodstuffs.

      The official unemployment is about 9%, and in reality, is closer to 22-23% (The rate was close to 25% during the Depression of the 30′s.)

      Some people are going to reach the end of their rope. DUH! I hope folks here are not living in big cities or near them. I think that as we continue to see this pattern of no work, high costs of living etc. the crime rates are going to continue to climb and we very well may see real unrest, not just some protests.

    16. The source of our problem is real simple: big government social programs which were designed to bring the poor out of poverty have instead driven the middle class into poverty. Bloomberg whines about all of these “college” grads not being able to find jobs, but neglects to look at the root cause of why we have so many college grads—big government. If the government had stayed out of the markets and let them work, it is true not everyone would go to college. BUT, those that did would find jobs. The problem with the problems we are facing now is the government has brought down the entire middle class in an effort to help what once was a small segment of the population.

      Everything the government gets involved with ends up in disaster, but the irony is people like Bloomberg now talking about the very problems his socialist thinking ilk created! If Bloomberg and his ilk would have just followed the constitution and allowed the free markets to work, WE WOULD NOT HAVE THESE PROBLEMS.

        When The First Country (Greece?) Goes Down, You’ll Have Two Weeks To Get Your Money Out Of The Bank – Fall 2001 – David Wilkerson

        Will Greece’s Default be the start of the chain reaction?
        (Please note, that Greece has not defaulted yet)‏

        Regarding the chain of events, described in a prophetic word (see below), that is attributed to David Wilkerson to the awaited economic collapse, Greece is a much better fit for the start of the chain reaction then Kuwait or Iceland was:

        The trigger was described as:
        “Very soon a European or North African or Eastern nation is going to default on its international loan”

        Greece is a good fit for three reasons:

        Hangs below Europe towards Africa, almost in between – is this why David Wilkerson had some vagueness?

        Greece is long considered the root of Western Thought – it is foundational in terms of spiritual roots of western progress and prosperity. It would make sense that God would take out that foundation at the start in keeping with a converse form of the verse: “If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?”

        It is clear from the scurrying by the EU over the weekend that more than just me knows that if Greece falls, there is a ripple effect here that is started. And we know that even with the 986 Billion they scraped together for the EU overall, it is too little too late. This whole system is coming down so God’s people can shine forth the light.

        Gold Will Not Provide Security

        “The price of gold is going to rise astronomically but it will not be sustained over a long period of time…neither silver nor gold will offer real security … Gold hoarders are going to get hurt – badly. This is one of the most significant predictions in this book.” David Wilkerson, “The Vision & Beyond”

        The London P.M. Fix price for gold in 1973 was $65 per ounce; in Today gold is traded $1233 per ounce.

        Airplane / Economy Crash
        Nathan Leal – 3/23/09

        A few days ago I had a very heavy dream that the Lord gave me. It was a prophetic dream and I want to share it with you right now:

        In this dream, I was standing at a street corner of a downtown area of a small town, and I was looking across the street to a bank that was on the corner. It was a one-story bank and it was not very big. The building was probably 75-100 feet wide. I suddenly heard the roar of a propeller plane from behind, and I didn’t look behind me because it happened so fast.

        Here’s what happened: A propeller plane that would probably hold 20 passengers flew right over my head and into the bank building. It went through the glass. When it broke the glass, I could see inside the bank, and the only person I saw inside the bank was the bank manager. He stood up from his chair with his back to the window where the plane was coming from, so he didn’t even turn to look at the plane because it happened so fast to him. He stood up, the wing of the plane clipped him, and knocked him straight to the ground, and the plane kept on going through the bank, and it came out the other side.

        Now, when that happened, I remember in my dream that I just started crying and screaming.

        I was panicked. I was terrified to see this thing happen because I just saw a person get killed and I started screaming, “Call 911! Call everybody!” I was just screaming for help. I felt such panic, and I believe I was feeling a panic everyone is going to feel when this happens. I ran across the street and around to the other side of the bank building to where the parking lot was. When I got to the parking lot, the engine of the plane was lying in the parking lot. The plane flew through the building and the engine was on the ground, but I didn’t see the plane. I looked to my left where the bank was and I didn’t see the plane. I screamed to a person who was in the parking lot, “Where is the plane?” And he said, “It’s at the end of the parking lot; it crashed over there.”

        As I looked to the bank, I saw a huge, empty room. The glass was broken on both ends. The plane went through it and cleaned out everything. It was an empty room. I didn’t even see the body of the banker; I didn’t see desks overthrown. I saw nothing. It was a huge, empty room. Then the dream was over.

        At first, I didn’t understand what the dream meant. I took the matter to prayer and sought God about it, and when I did, I was overcome with travailing. It hit me so strong when I was seeking God about this matter, and God told me the interpretation. He told that the airplane I saw is the economy. And He said, “The economy is going to crash. It’s going to hit the ground and crash. But before it crashes, it’s going to happen so fast that it is going to take out small banks.”

        The bank manager got hit from behind. God said that means it is going to catch them off guard. It’s going to strike all of us suddenly. It’s going to be breaking news: Banks are failing all at once.

        This is a terrible thing to imagine, folks. And God said the reason the engine of the plane was on the ground is that the engine is the economic engine, and the engine of the economy is going to fall off eventually. It’s not going to be able to hold up anymore. So as the economy is crashing, the engine will fall off. And the reason the plane crashed at the end of the parking lot is that is where it was actually going to crash, but before it does crash, it’s going to take out the banks first.

        The reason the bank was cleaned out in the dream is self-explanatory. The banks are going to get cleaned out and it’s going to happen fast and suddenly. That means just like in the first depression when there was a run on the banks, it’s going to happen again. I don’t know if this is going to cause a bank holiday. I don’t know the exact particulars, but God shared that money will not be available from the banks. They’ll be shut down and cleaned out.

          Bank Runs
          Deborah Horton – 1/09/08

          I was visiting with my friend at the bank branch nearest me, but the branch layout was sort of a combination of the Hwy. 9 & Reidville Rd. branches (SYMBOLIC OF ALL BANKS IN GENERAL). Don’t know what we were discussing, just chit chatting, la la la. (EVERYTHING GOING AS USUAL DAY-TO-DAY.)

          Then the scene changed and all the bank personnel, including my friend, were gone. I knew that they were in the back rooms (HIDING IN SHAME AND FEAR; ALSO REPRESENTS SECRET BACK ROOM DEALS GONE BAD), though I remained where I had been, behind a low railing that separated (NEED TO BE SEPARATED FROM THE BANKING SYSTEM AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE) the regular area of the bank from the teller windows, etc. Suddenly, lots of customers started coming in until there was standing room only (BANK RUNS) .

          The people milled about and I remember that one of the men was carrying an extension ladder (LOTS OF MEANINGS HERE: FOR AN EXTENDED TIME, OR EVEN AN EXTENSION LADDER WON’T BE ENOUGH TO GET OUT OF THE PIT THAT’S BEEN DUG FINANCIALLY). The people were definitely all working class; some of them had painters’ coveralls, etc., indicating their jobs. They kept milling about, trying to find someone to help them (how or with what I didn’t know) until slowly, one by one, they left with their shoulders drooping. Still no bank personnel came out. (THE BANKING SYSTEM WILL BE PERMANENTLY BROKEN.)

          At this point I realized that I was sitting on the floor (ROCK BOTTOM), completely naked. (THE BANKS WILL NOT BE ABLE TO COVER THE BASIC NEEDS OF ITS CONSTITUENTS.) A lone customer came wandering in, a man, in a suit, I think. He looked around but there were still no employees to help him. When he seemed to notice me and my struggles to get dressed, I was embarrassed but also felt sorry for him. Before he could say anything, I spoke up and said, “Well, here you come into a bank looking for help and all you see is a poor woman trying to get dressed.” (GOVERNMENT’S NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO COVER UP THIS MESS.) Then I woke up.

          Crash Coming — Get Some Small Bills

          Amy Methvin – 10/14/08

          In a dream on 10/14/08, I was in a location midway between David and another UBM member who had moved to Maryville, TN. David had called me to tell me he was preparing for the difficult road ahead and that it was coming quickly. He thought it would be wise for people to get money out of the bank in very small denominations. He really emphasized the small denominations, as if it were a very recent revelation. He asked me if I would go get $1000 in one dollar bills for UBM. He said we would need them because folks would not be able to make change for larger bills. I told him that I probably could not draw money out of UBM and that the banks don’t usually carry that many ones. I suggested that he put in a request to his local branch so that they could order in the money he wanted. End of dream.

            http://www.unleavenedbreadministries.org/?page=shortages

            In a dream in April of 2008 I saw despair, hunger and illness. I was standing and watching many people on the streets somewhere standing in a line. Some others were roaming around crying; some were very ill and were looking for someone to help them. As I walked around, looking at all the people in this area, I was trying not to be seen by those who were in charge. Everyone was sectioned off. Some had blue markings on their faces; those people were the ones who were allowed food. The others who did not have the bluish paint on their face were not allowed food. Some others that were sectioned off were ones who were sick and you had to look at them really closely in order to see if they had a marking on their face or not. There were two colors of blue, one for one line the other for the other line. I just remembered looking very closely at some of the people as I tried to see what group they were in.

            It wasn’t a marking of 666; it was like a sky blue, and the second color was a powder blue with a hint of purple in it — that was the color on their faces. It looked like it was paint, almost; it was smudged on people’s faces. The ones with the sky blue on them were the ones who could get food and those without the markings weren’t allowed to be in line; they were the ones who were sick and showed much despair. I wasn’t able to determine what the others in the groups were there for, as they had the powder blue color on them. I was trying not to be seen as I walked by them. I was being very careful not to be seen in this dream. That’s all I can remember; however, the images of the people with the blue paint was very strong and they are who I was shown more so than the others.

            Note from Mark: When Marion told me of this dream the first thing I thought of was the UN colors of blue. Marion had no idea about the UN or any colors they use. I had her do a Google search on the UN and see if it was the same blue and she got goose bumps as the two colors of blue in the picture below are exactly what she saw in the dream!

            Note from David: It appears that shortages of gas and food will lead to martial law and U.N. oversight. The sky blue could be heavenly people and the U. N. blue the beastly.

            Food Stores Bare
            Gloria Greenwood – 9/29/08

            I dreamed I went to my local grocery store. Once inside, I found many of the shelves to be almost bare. It appeared all the produce and meat items were gone, just some can goods were left. I remember seeing long lines of people buying the little food that was left to buy in the store. I remember walking out; I did not buy anything.

      While this is nice addition to pointing how bad things are, and how much worse they are likely about to become, I find this statement more of part of the problem:

      “…when the prices of goods rise so high that it effectively cuts subsistence checks by 50% or more, that we will see Americans rise up in the streets”. For more of public educational impact, perhaps it would be more appropriate to talk about value of dollar declining due to expansion of money supply (cause) rather than prices pricing (symptom).

    20. Eric, you delude yourself if you think that the Elite are not prepared for what is to come. Who is buying up all the farm land, commodities, precious metals and real estate. It isn’t the middle class or the poor.

      The elite are not stupid. The reason we are where we are, is because the Elite were carefully planning the demise of the world population and bringing about control of what is left of the world after the collapse.

      All preppers will be better off with there preps, but there will come a time of either death or having to work something out with who ever represents the elite in your area.

      This is a subject that has never been brought up. What to do with the Elite of the world after the collapse? What can we do? We either eliminate them or come to terms with them.

      God bless and keep on prepping.

        I will not hesitate. Perhaps I may even be aggressive. I watch what is going on in my community, state and country EVERYDAY.

        We are not wackos. We own businesses, have kids and grandkids, pay our taxes, contribute to local charities, help anyone who helps themself. We are preppers.

        I will cut a swath as wide and far as neccessary to keep us safe. Only time will tell.

        I will be judged by our creator…no one else.

        Just some food for thought. Hope it helps.

      Anyone who doubts that this administration is anything but sock puppets for the NWO, consider this: ALL of Obama’s “economic advisers are KEYNESIANS. Keynes QUOTED LENIN about THE BEST WAY to destroy a capitalist economy: PRINT MONEY!
      “Lenin is said to have declared that the best way to destroy the Capitalist System was to debauch the currency. By a continuing process of inflation, government can confiscate, secretly and unobserved, an important part of the wealth of their citizens. By this method they not only confiscate, but they confiscate arbitrarily; and while the process impoverishes many, it actually enriches some. As the inflation proceeds and the real value of the currency fluctuates wildly from month to month, all permanent relations between debtors and creditors, which form the ultimate foundation of capitalism, become so utterly disordered as to be almost meaningless; and the process of wealth-getting degenerates into a gamble and a lottery.”
      “Lenin was certainly right. There is no subtler, no surer means of overturning the existing basis of society than to debauch the currency. The process engages all the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, and does it in a manner which not one man in a million is able to diagnose.”

      Interesting perspectives. I think the author is correct, and the one thing I can see that’s going to primarily do it is when escalating (like 10% to 30% per annum) food prices (just like in Arab countries), along with Federal Gov’t twiddling the data to pretend inflation is zero percent, push even more numbers of Americans into poverty. It’s already 1 in every 6 ! Then twiddle the unemployment data to make 19% look like 9.1%. If, as many suspect, the underlying agenda for “Globalization” was/is to undermine American incomes and drive them down by 40%, whilst increasing incomes in China and India by 5% (the “new” consumers), and return the world to a sort of unprotected, unregulated. class-dominated, 19th Century existence (with cell phones, to go with the rampant hunger, disease and cancer), they seem to be right on schedule. I was willing to give them all the benefit of the doubt, that they really had an end game. Then George W.

        If we are going to eliminate the corrupt Federal government and get back to the decentralized system developed by our founders, you must (MUST!) give those bankers a fair trial before pronouncing sentence. If you are asking me to support the lynching of ANYBODY, regardless of their crimes, you would be going down a road that not only can I not follow; but morality dictates I must oppose. I truly hope that is not what you meant.

        I can agree with your points as outlined above, other than the complete dissolution of the federal government. A federal government restricted by the rules set down in the Constitution would be no threat to the individual rights of its sovereign citizens, and would be necessary for these United States to function on the world stage. (Of course we will once again become a beacon of hope for the world, but this time we need to support their own efforts to create a better government for themselves, rather than propping up the current corrupt regime just because ‘they are our friends’) We will also need some additional amendments to solidify the rights that have been taken away over the years, but we can discuss the details when we get to that point.

        All the talk about riots and such is coming from the left, right? They are essencially trying to put us on the defense and see how we react. They want to see the majority of us become offensive (plane flown into the IRS building, just one example). When or if we ever mobilize against this current government, then they will justify their aggression against the American people and justify calling us terrorists. Remember; Star Trek the TV show? They had an episode where, on a distant planet, they had encountered people with a tathered American flag? These patriots were deamed to be the enemy. They had a constitution.

      The US aided and facilitated a global economy under the direction of the power elite. The “Free Trade” agreements fostered a global manpower resource which significantly lowers the standard of living in the developed nations while raising the standard of living in the developing nations. The delta in labor compensation is too great to achieve near parity in a reasonable time frame without a huge drop in the developed worlds standard of living.

      The governments in Europe despite having a very politically strong labor movement also signed on to the Free Trade agreements that have also eviscerated their manufacturing capacity and with it their indigenous wealth creation. I theorize that the body politic of both the US and Europe have little in the way of true political power. Their respective governments have been hijacked by a ruling power elite and Democracy is nothing more then an illusion that placates the masses.

        Jim – that observation is valid for many of the “nicer” areas around the country where the professional class live and where the white collar employment centers are. Inside the DC beltway, for example, the economy is thriving. But venture out to where the blue collar folks (the previously employed construction, mill and factory workers) live and things are very different. The further you go outside the snob-burbs the more desolate things look. Some small towns look like ghost towns. My neighborhood Staples just closed in the same shopping center where the CiCi’s pizza closed three weeks before that. Everywhere I go around my neck of the woods, I see restaurants and stores closing (Mom and Pop’s as well as National Chains), car dealers closing, foreclosed homes are sitting vacant and factories shutting down.

      The problem is democracy, everyone gets what they want and we end up with squared circles. A republican form of government is by design limited because of the logical realization that when two people who (who are fallen sinners) try to rule each others lives the result will be war resulting in murder or slavery. We can’t all be millionaires because if we were millionaires would be below the poverty level.

      Republican government is about providing those few limited things that we new to live in peace and harmony and then allowing every man to pursue happiness however he like so long as he doesn’t interfere with the life liberty and happiness of the other. THIS IS WHAT AMERICA USED TO BE ABOUT.

      Then we screwed it all up, making senators directly elected and trying to convince people that government can do anything the people want them to do. We need to return to limited government, its the only way to get our economy back on track, its the only way to control our debt, its the only way to safeguard liberty, and its the only way to save our country.

Don’t use the tabs by dropping them in a plastic bucket with loose product or it can collapse the bucket. Flour lasts longer in a freezer, but it will cause the glue for the bag opening to fail, plus it takes up alot of space. Flour has no where near the shelf life of hard red wheat, JM2CW.

            Regarding the vacuum packaging, I always add 2-3 inches to the bags when vac packing floury items.. that allows me to sort of fold the bag downwards until the initial “rush” of air is out of the bag.. that helps keep dust out of the machine. I have had to take my Food Saver apart before to clean it.. even had to open the vacuum chamber.. getting the seal back just right was not an easy task.. but it got me more mileage out of the machine.

        Funny thing is though, when the railroad companies did just that many many years ago with workers from Sweden, no one complained and everything worked out ok. Imagine that.

          Actually Clark there is a lot of truth to that statement. The beefpackers did hire many hundreds of illegals until they were caught.

          And whole villages in Mexico have illegally invaded America. Both issues are fact.

          As far as the Swedes and (Chinese for that matter) that was more than 150 years ago. America was different then and very vacant with a real shortage of labor.

          Today there is no shortage of labor, but a shortage of jobs, and 30 million illegals are taking American jobs under fraudulent circumstances (ID theft), suppressing wages for American workers, and feeding at the public trough, making the US taxpayer subsidize their illegal existence here in America to the tune of more than 300 billion dollars.

          Again you do not know what you are talking about, but that is usually par for the course.

            There’s all kinds of Help Wanted signs around here, quite a shortage of labor.

            American agriculture relies on immigrant labor to bring in their crops, what part of that don’t you get? The illegal immigrant gets the same wage as a legal one does,… or didn’t you know?

            I think it’s you who does not know what they’re talking about.

            You write, “And whole villages in Mexico have illegally invaded America. Both issues are fact.”

            Where is your reference?

            You wrote, “As far as the Swedes and (Chinese for that matter) that was more than 150 years ago. America was different then and very vacant with a real shortage of labor.”

            How was America different then that it was ok then and not now?

            And don’t say it was about jobs because there are jobs now and opportunity too.

            You claim illegals are, “feeding at the public trough making the US taxpayer subsidize their illegal existence in America” but that’s a whole separate issue, one you won’t touch. The solution is simple, remove the subsidy. But you’re in favor of big goberment, so you won’t support that. More of the same from you, only you just want it to go to to those you favor. That’s called cronyism.

      Freak out time and hot sweats.

      But when the dust clears for those that remain mentally, emotionally and physically intact, life will be simple and real. No more denial and rampant disorders.

      Get your teeth fixed now.

      Get off the junk food while you can.

      Get plenty of rest.

      Lay low as the storm passes over.

      Mind your own business.

      Stay grounded and centered.

      Be happy, even if you have to force it, a little bit.

        55er, if you think you’ve found a “safe haven” in France, guess again. When those immigrant hordes come pouring out of their “banlieues” (basically the same thing as American inner-city housing projects, my fellow Americans) to burn your car, your house and maybe your arse as well, how will you defend yourself? Will you throw a bottle of Beaujolais at them as you adjust your eye-makeup?

        The problem in France and Britain is that TPTB have disarmed the indigenous people. Look at Marseille, Grenoble and Rouen. Look at the “no-go” zones in every French city with an immigrant population.

        I won’t even mention the suburbs of Paris with their rampaging hordes of car-burning invaders who actually constitute the MAJORITY population in their municipalities. St. Denis (for example), the traditional burial place of the Kings of France, is now 90% Muslim. They’re all permanently pissed, envious, unskilled and ineducable, and are filled with hatred not only for France but all Europe. And one day they will come for YOU.

        Europe’s traitor governments have deliberately created a “Camp of the Saints” situation in their nations. On the day of reckoning, you can say “au revoir” to your unarmed butt, pal. I’d never trade my inalienable second amendment rights for good food and medieval architecture, especially if it means the difference between a degrading death and surviving with honor as a free man.

The few women who deliver get it right every time.

        Their pensions are upside down & broke. Have been for years with delivery costs going up and revenue down. If they charge full price for junk mail, they will lose that revenue also.

        Registered, certified, and insured mail can be conducted at the post office. Delivery should be three days a week for starters.

      The US pubic feels that something is wrong and are coming to the conclusion it’s beyond a Democrat verses Republican solution. Given the fact that every governmental political party combination has been tried and seeing “no change” for the better one additional economic decline and the USA may loose the ability to govern. The masses in huge numbers may just say, “I give up on the political process”. If you see a Presidential election pass with record low voter turnout look out. It’s a very bad sign. At that point governments fragment and several states could very well become independent nations. It’s happened time and time again throughout history. Think about the addition of 4 or 5 new nuclear armed nations where the once governor is now a President.

      Hedge Apples (also known as Osage Oranges)

      “Hedge Apples are an excellent natural insect repellent and seem work particularly well against spiders. Some folks even suggest that they deter mice. To use as a pest repellent, place the hedge apple on a saucer or dish and place in areas of your house where there is little activity, such as your garage basement, attic, and other crawl spaces. You can place them on top of cabinets, in closets and around your foundation. And because they are organic and non-poisonous, if you have children it makes a perfect insect repellent for around the house. Hedge Apples can be used as a natural home décor, both fresh and dried out. Used fresh they are a bright green color. Dried out they can be painted to add texture to wreaths and other decorations.”
