    Bugging Out of NYC: “Something Terrible is Coming… So For Now, I’m Getting Out.”

    You may remember the Wall Street Insider from a previous interview in which he suggested that elements within the Obama administration were mobilizing to incite class and race conflicts across the United States. That report was made available in mid August of this year, just before the Occupy Wall Street movements began. As we can see, certain groups, some with direct White House ties, as well as thousands of communist sympathizers, are now very much moving in that direction – especially in terms of turning one income class of people against another.

    The reason we mention this previous report is that the “Wall Street Insider” is an anonymous source who now makes regular appearances in interviews with The Ulsterman Report. Due to his request to maintain anonymity, it has been suggested by some that the Insider is not credible. However, as has been shown time and again, Ulsterman’s reporting with both, the Wall Street and White House insiders, has been way ahead of the curve.

    The Wall Street insider is reportedly a well connected, high powered player in financial and investment circles with loose ties to sources in the White House as well. In a recent interview he advised that Wall Street has turned on the Obama administration, and they are now actively working against the Obama re-election campaign, namely in the form of pulling campaign donations. According to the Insider, Wall Street organizations have a goal of funding Obama’s opponent, whoever it may be, to the tune of $1 Billion – a serious commitment to make sure President Obama does not win another four years:

    That revenue will not be a given this time around.  Things must change.  That change will not benefit President Obama.  The unions will attempt to counterbalance that.  Let them try – we will outspend them this time around.  We now have the means to more easily do so.  They put up half a billion for President Obama the last time. Fine. We will put up a billion against him – or more if need be, in 2012. These unions wish to promote an anti-capitalism agenda and wrap it around the current resident of the White House?  Fine – we will be promoting and protecting the free market as much as has ever been done in my professional lifetime – and that goes back more than a few years.

    A story carried by The Daily Crux this week has confirmed that money is not flowing to President Obama’s coffers this time around, and instead, Wall Street is directing funds to Republican candidates, namely Mitt Romey.

    Given that President Obama has openly declared his support for certain ideologies within the Occupy Wall Street movement, there is obviously a rift that has taken place between his administration and the financiers in the world’s financial capital. Coupled with the fact the Wall Street is shifting money – a key element to any Obama reelection – to the President’s opponents, they have now created enemies in the top echelons of the Executive Branch. President Obama, whose father was an admitted Communist and held top positions in Kenya’s communist party, seems to now fully support an agenda similar to that of the communist and socialist protesters participating in the Wall Street riots, which is to punish all of those ‘more fortunate’ individuals in American society.

    So what does Wall Street Insider have to say about what may happen next?

    According to the insider, the Obama White House and partisan organizations that support the President are now actively promoting chaos in New York and other cities as a form of punishment and intimidation against those on Wall Street (and elsewhere) who have spoken out against the administration. The chaos, he says, will lead to elevated levels of anger and the real possibility of nationwide violence and riots:

    Via The Ulsterman Report:

    Ulsterman: You are saying the Obama White House wants violence to break out in New York?  Throughout the country?

    WSI: I am saying that such violence is going to likely happen – the foundation has now been laid out for that kind of thing, and the administration appears…disinterested in the preventions of that violence.  If anything, they are promoting it to some degree. They are being clever about it of course – but there has been absolutely no denouncement from the White House of what is going on down there.  Nothing.  Only support.  Only encouragement. Even as they are receiving word of the dangers, of the altercations, of the potential for greater violence – the Obama White House only offers its support of these events.  Why is that?  What is their purpose? ZuccottiPark should have been cleared last week.  To have backed down only lent more courage to these protesters.  It made them increasingly volatile.  Now if there is a move by law enforcement against the protesters, the dangers will be greatly increased than just a week ago.  The violence will be much-much worse.  Police will be harmed.  Citizens will be harmed.  Businesses harmed.  Why would the White House appear intent on seeing that happen?

    Ulsterman: What do you fear is going to happen down there? What is coming?

    WSI: I don’t wish to be overly dramatic here…but violence.  Injury.  Perhaps death.  Most certainly destruction of property.  It’s getting dangerous.  I can sense it.  It’s palpable. And you feel it too, don’t you?

    Ulsterman: It reminds me of growing up in Northern Ireland, yes.  It does remind me of that…uneasy feeling that something terrible could happen just around the turn…

    WSI:  That’s it exactly.  Just around the turn.  Something terrible is coming just around the turn.  So for now, I’m getting out. I’m blessed to have the means to do so.  I fear for those who do not.

    Ulsterman: If violence does break out down there – what then?  Where does all of this go?

    WSI: If that happens – and I pray it does not…but if that happens, my instinct tells me it’s just the start. It’s the fuse meant to light the fire.  And I don’t wish to be anywhere near this place when that happens.

    The following video shows just how volatile the situation has become.

    All it will take is a small spark to ignite a powder keg of pandemonium on the streets of America unlike anything we have ever seen before:

    If the Wall Street Insider is bugging out of town then consider doing the same if the situation deteriorates further, or at the very least have enough food, water and other supplies in your possession so that you don’t have to venture out into the middle of a full scale riot.

      FEMA plans first ever Nationwide Emergency Alert System Test on Nov 9th.

      Test?

      We need a test?

      “On November 9, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will conduct the first-ever nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS) at 2 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST), a test that will last for approximately three minutes.

      The EAS is a system designed to transmit emergency alerts and warnings to the public at the national, state, and local levels.”

      3 Minutes?

      How about indefinitely?

          FEMA is broke? Yeah, right.

          FEMA is only broke if they want to make themselves appear to be broke. And they’re performing that role exceptionally well. (Google FEMA going broke)

          If FEMA appears to be broke it’s because those running the show are deliberately dismantling any project that follows FEMA’s mission or any other mission similar to this, i.e. helping those in need during an emergency. Well, get ready for the “Long Emergency”, on your own.

          “FEMA’s mission is to support our citizens and first responders to ensure that as a nation we work together to build, sustain, and improve our capability to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from, and mitigate all hazards.

          DISASTER. It strikes anytime, anywhere. It takes many forms — a hurricane, an earthquake, a tornado, a flood, a fire or a hazardous spill, an act of nature or an act of terrorism. It builds over days or weeks, or hits suddenly, without warning. Every year, millions of Americans face disaster, and its terrifying consequences.”

          Personally, I don’t mind if FEMA collapses. The organization is crap, anyway. It was designed for failure. But they’ve always had the funds if they really wanted them. Don’t believe their propaganda.

            Americans are not properly informed as to what FEMA actually is. It is NOT for emergency aid- their deliberately misleading name notwithstanding. They are solely for CONTINUITY of GOVT- this goes back to its founding charter under Pres Carter and was raised to a sacrament under Reagan. FEMA is the agency that will comprise the replacement govt under martial law or catastrophic disaster. It will be the NWO dictatorship.

          Anonymous if FEMA is broke it is because we are broke, the leech for our system has already set the chess peices in place using our own money against us, to break us down. All they need is for us to start tearing apart each other in order deal against the strongest oposition in the world that they have slowly been chipping away at which is The American people.

            Fema is broke. The NFIP – National Flood Insurance Program – which provides flood insurance to people through the Government program is operating at a deficit of over $2 billion / year. This deficit is growing as they pay almost $900k a year just in interest on the loans they owe & that number is growing. The gov’t contempleted wiping clean the slate & fogiving the debt – kind of like they do with everything else. FEMA is the govt organization who comes in when you have a flood & have to make a claim against your policy – written by the NFIP. So if they are broke & have no money & pay $900k a year in interest alone, what does that tell you about FEMA?

          • Zoltanne says:

            And to further the comment by abryan516, NFIP came about because the Feds took over flood insurance. No insurance company could finance flood damages in flood-prone regions. Insurance companies began cancelling flood insurance. The Feds came in to save the day. Now they are a flood insurance monopoly under NFIP.

            Now we have Obamacare and if it isn’t repealed or declared unconstitutional, we’ll have a health insurance monopoly.

            Full control. Completely intentional.

        Okay – while awaiting the other comment to clear moderation (website link), I figured I would tackle the subject of getting out of / surviving NYC…

        A tough nut to crack, truth be told. There’s millions of people there, only a few viable routes, and the local bodegas and markets will empty out pretty quickly.

        IMHO, getting the hell out would be top priority. OTOH, the mobs will likely either be trying to do the very same thing, or be busy looting the hell out of the local stores, and anyone who happens to look lootable.

        I’m guessing your best bet to get out of dodge would be to dress like a bum, keep away from crowds whenever possible, and carry whatever you can safely conceal on your person or in a small, ratty dufflebag. Forget vehicles, forget public transit, because you’re hoofing it. A bicycle would be awesome, but may draw too much attention, so that’s out.

        The only places where you cannot avoid crowds would be the bridges/tunnels, that is of course unless you could swipe a boat (not really possible in NYC, considering). Best idea there would be to try and get across as quietly and quickly as you can, then clear out.

        The hard part would be to figure out where everyone else is walking to after that, and try not to go in that direction… New Yorkers (former or present) would have a better idea, but I think the main destinations would be upstate, New Jersey (?), and I think most would avoid Boston at first, but might pass through it to get at Vermont/New England and the like. Hard call either way, but I think one could always eye the crowds and get a feel for where they’re going (then don’t follow them).

        The reason to avoid the mass of refugees, I think makes the most sense because masses of refugees will strip the countryside (and anything else they can lay hands on) to feed themselves and keep themselves warm. Unless you’re at the very head of that crowd, this means little to nothing left for you.

        Also, governments (state, federal, whatever) will be busy trying to corral those refugees (and you) into camps, and you probably don’t want that to happen.

        I’m thinking that if you live in the city (or Long Island), it would probably pay big dividends to have some sort of arrangements set up for a bug-out location (just avoid upstate – everyone else practically talks about having one there, and most will likely migrate in that direction.

        Dunno… anyone want to pick up the baton and come up with other possibilities?

          OC: In a financial melt down which CAN happen but is VERY unlikely, and with the resulting chaos that would follow within the major cities like NYC, I think the best thing to do would be to stay put in your house or apt and lay low.

          Trying to “Escape NYC” would put you and yours at risk.

          Marines and Airborne would be called in from North Carolina to quell the violence, decked out in full combat gear and ready to restore order. And they will.

          Eventually order would be restored, but all politicians would have egg on their face.

          I only envision the scope of your scenario after or during a Pole Shift. Then it will be too late. You will be stuck where you are at.

          Move to the mountains now people, before you need to “get out of Dodge”.

            Realistically, not everyone CAN move to the mountains. If you can’t GOOD – then you have to prep for a long haul of not leaving your apartment. You need to come up with solutions for heat, water and sanitation.

            One issue with this is that apartments in NYC are tiny – I shared a studio apartment with 5 other people during my misspent youth and still paid $500 a month. So you have to make the most of your space. If you are lucky, essential services such as water and electricity will remain operational. Then, if you have enough food, your only major concern is garbage. Think about the amount of garbage that could build up in a city that size if the sanitation trucks aren’t running!!! You’d need to get rid of your garbage very wisely. That might include flushing food garbage so it doesn’t rot and stink the place up. Be careful, though, and make sure the pieces are small enough not to stop things up – won’t be many plumbers making house calls!

            Plan to bug in!!! It’s the only way to survive in a city this size.

          • Odd Questioner says:

            I can agree to the logic. I mean, not all situations call for grabbing the bug-out bag, certainly. You have a solid point about the military stepping in.

            Here’s why I’m biased towards evacuation, though. I’m hoping y’all can help me with this thought-exercise a bit.

            Bugging-in, in a town the size of NYC, would require three things to remain operational, as Daisy brought up: water, electricity (for heat at the very least), and sanitation. Without at least the first two in continuous supply, I suspect that things can get pretty ugly, pretty fast, and that you would be evacuated anyway.

            There’s also the vertical deal. If you live in a walk-up or a house, no problem. If you require an elevator to get home, better hope the power stays on.

            The biggest reason I’d thought of getting out as a priority is time. If the situation is resolved at least somewhat quickly, cool.

            If it drags on though, or slowly get worse, then you’ve got some odds to weigh, based on the following factors:

            * supplies you have on hand
            * odds of power and water supplies continuing
            * odds of fresh supplies coming in
            * relative security in your immediate neighborhood
            * the likelihood of the government (local, state, federal) forcing an evacuation.

            That last one is important. Consider New Orleans, during Katrina. While for the most part the government let you go (if you had somewhere to go) once you were dropped off somewhere, you still had zero choice as to where you went, how you got to that drop-off point, and what you could carry.

            In a situation that is strictly regional or (relatively!) mild (like a large hurricane)? No big deal, as the government had the money, time, and resources to assist you (even if you didn’t want it).

            OTOH, I don’t think it would require something the size of a TEOTWAWKI event to cause a breakdown. A hard financial collapse of the government could be sufficient (though more drawn-out), as would other wide-scale breakdown of civil authority and order. Basically, it would only take any event that would, even if over time, put the presence of potable water, power, or troops in question. It could be an in-between event, such as a pathogen outbreak (in which case the only question is how long you have before you’re locked in due to quarantine).

            Head for the sticks? Good advice, but most folks can’t. Up until my current job (and one long ago, where I worked remotely), my jobs required that I lived nearby, and those jobs are usually in large population centers. My current job lets me telecommute most of the time, but I still have to have a decent broadband connection and reasonable access to a large airport (I still travel occasionally) in order to do it.

            Good thoughts, though – please, let’s keep it going!

          Several years back, I remember reading an article in one of our railroad news magazines that it took on average 12 one mile long trains just to bring into the New York proper the amount of food that would be required to feed New Yorkers for “that day” alone… I would think the requirements have gone up a bit since then… I personally could not fathom living in N.Y.
          I can’t help but wonder if obama’s crew isn’t aware of that and plan on shutting down the rail system – for security matters of course… I live in a small community of 100,000 and ‘bugging out’ would take less than 15 minutes (if all went well) and even that’s too long for me… good luck N.Y.

        Look up the NIMS program and the only importance is the
        NIMS Audience (TPTB), when they say all hazards this includes civil unrest, FEMA put the plans for the NWO in several plans through-out their site in different scopes or programs to acheive H,R 645 and the REX 84 intiative without anyone putting it all together. there are several other FEMA plans to read as well. Here is the link to some fact sheets http://www.fema.gov/media/fact_sheets/ . IMO FEMA is the blue print and plan to by pass the Bill of Rights and the Constitution.

        National Incident Management System
        Fact SheetFact Sheet
        The National Incident Management System is: .
        Comprehensive, nationwide systematic approach to incident management.
        Core set of doctrine, concepts, principles, terminology and organizational processes for all hazards.
        Essential principles for a common operating picture and interoperability of communications and information
        management.
        Standardized resource management procedures for coordination among different jurisdictions and organizations.
        Scalable and applicable for all incidents

        Key benefits of NIMS
        .
        Enhances organizational and technological interoperability and cooperation
        .
        Provides a scalable and flexible framework with universal applicability
        .
        Promotes all-hazards preparedness
        .
        Enables a wide variety of organizations to participate effectively in emergency management/incident response
        .
        Institutionalizes professional emergency management/incident response practices

        NIMS Audience:

        NIMS is applicable to all incidents and all levels of stakeholders, including levels of government, private sector
        organizations, critical infrastructure owners and operators, nongovernmental organizations and all other organizations
        who assume a role in emergency management. Elected and appointed officials and policy makers, who are responsible
        for jurisdictional policy decisions, must also have a clear understanding of NIMS to better serve their constituency.

        NIMS Components:
        Built on existing structures, such as the Incident Command System (ICS), NIMS creates a proactive system to assistthose responding to incidents or planned events. To unite the practice of emergency management and incident response throughout the country, NIMS focuses on five key areas, or components. These components link together and work in unison to form a larger and comprehensive incident management system.

        NIMS Components include: .
        Preparedness
        .
        Communications and Information Management
        .
        Resource Management
        .
        Command and Management
        .
        Ongoing Management and Maintenance

        What NIMS is NOT : .

        This nation now stands on the threshold of rule by non-elected people asserting non-Constitutional powers. Even Congress cannot review a Martial Law action until six months after it has been declared by the President. For the first time in American history, the reigns of government would not be transferred from one elected element to another, but the Constitution, itself, can be suspended. The scenarios established to trigger FEMA into action are generally found in the society today, economic collapse, civil unrest, drug problems, terrorist attacks, and protests against American intervention in a foreign country. All these premises exist, it could only be a matter of time in which one of these triggers the entire emergency necessary to bring FEMA into action, and then it may be too late, because under the FEMA plan, there is no contingency by which Constitutional power is restored once inacted

          1933 – Twinkies were introduced by The Continental Baking Company in Indianapolis, which also made “Wonder Bread” and had a snack line your probably familiar with called Hostess. One of their bakers named James A. Dewar got the idea for the “Twinkie” while he delivered one of their products, a cream filled strawberry shortcake. The machines to make these sat idle when the strawberry season was over so he came up with an idea to use them to make a snack cake filled with a banana filling, and only charge a nickel for a package of 2. It was good idea as money was tight for people during the great depression

          The disorder will last until it cannot be contained and then biological warfare will be unleashed. The end game has always been to depopulate as much of the planet as can be done while preserving as much infrastructure as possible; the world as a playground for the elites minus the riff-raff consuming finite resources. The powerful will retreat to their well stocked hidey-holes and wait for disease and starvation to kill off the useless eaters.

            Moon, I’ve heard the depopulation argument from over a dozen sources and it leaves me wondering: Who is going to make the stuff needed by the NWO to give them their grand lifestyle? Can a half billion people grow the crops, distribute the food, build the mansions, provide water, fuel, fancy cars, electricity, Internet, television, etc? I know we consume precious resources but we also provide the stuff they need. The last time the earth had a half billion people was during the Rennaissance. Whoever is masterminding this plan needs to ask the question, “what can possibly go wrong?”. The answer is so much can go wrong, the elites might want to rethink this strategy.

          • The Moon is a Harsh Mistress says:

            I have wondered about this myself. Either the elites planning the depopulation feel it is of such importance that the loss of their comforts are secondary to the goal of reducing the population to sustainable levels, or the depopulation will be selective in how it is applied. This begs several further questions – what would motivate a depopulation on such a scale that the elites would put it before their own comforts, and how could a depopulation be accomplished on such a vast scale and be selective enough that their would be a critical mass of personnel available to keep them in the comfort they have grown accustomed to.

            The first question, the motive, I believe to be the exponential growth in the human population and the corresponding strain on worldwide resources of every kind that this explosive increase in population has caused. In the animal kingdom, this kind of explosive population growth continues until resources are exhausted and then a great starvation or epidemic reduces the population to a point that resources can recover. Every biology student learns this and the same natural law applies to humans as well, although our use of technology and application of science and modern medicine can delay the inevitable collapse. By initiating the collapse and die-off themselves, the elites can hope to keep some measure of control over who survives the collapse, namely themselves. Anyone with a brain can see that at some point there will be a die-off, either man made, or through natural law. You mention half a billion population at the time of the Renaissance. It took all of human history to reach that number, and less than 400 years to increase it to more than seven billion. This is clearly not something that can continue forever. The population must be reduced. The question becomes how will it be done.

            The second question, assuming that the elites behind the planned depopluation are going to try and continue their current lifestyle. War is kind of messy and problematic; infrastructure is destroyed, it is unpredictable, and the targeted population might not be reduced enough. Not to say that wars will not happen; they are always a side effect of limited resources but I do not think the elites would seek to initiate wars unless it was between nations or peoples where both sides are expendable. I believe that it will be through biological warfare, specifically targeted engineered genetic diseases. It is possible to target treatments to specific racial characteristics so why not disease? If you could engineer existing diseases such as Ebola or plague or smallpox so that they would attack specific genetic characteristics then you could depopulate entire countries or even continents. One disease that targets those of Latino descent, another that targets Asians and Indians, another that targets those of African descent, it would be a white-supremecist’s wet dream! Wipe out all the non-white races or at least severely reduce them, and you are left with a world population that is close to half a billion. The survivors would be mainly in the US and Europe, and those regions would be preserved more or less intact with their manufacturing capabilities and workers to run them.

            Is it any surprise that those who advocate depopulation, the Kissingers, and the Soroses, the wild eyed socialist college professors, are mostly of white, european descent? When you hear one of them talk about depopulation, what they mean is depopulation of everyone else who is not like them, ie. white and elite.

            @Moon/Prepper- most likely they will use biological warfare to depop the sheeple. People often wonder about why they would eliminate necessary labor class. If you look at it from their position -the elites are psychotic megalomaniacs- most of them are of average levels of intelligence- they probably realize they are eliminating their workforce but their thrist for death and destruction is far greater than their tolerance. They refuse to share the world with other people- they are afraid to discover that the ‘useless eaters’ are actually more skilled and perhaps more genetically advanced than they are- they refuse to accept their inferiority to the ‘masses’ and thus they are willing to destroy the entire planet if that’s what it takes to get rid of the sheeple. They have narrow depth perception and probably are thinking after the ‘war’ is over that their lives will be posh. However, the vicitms will be the lucky ones- a post-apocalyptic world will not be pleasant and there will be no law that could stop the remnant sheeple from turning against their slave masters. Eventually there slaves would turn against them and possibly would win the battle against the elite parasites.

          Now might be a good time to establish some sort of an outreach contact effort with your neighbors. At least to learn the names of folks that live in your immediate vicinity. It just could be that you will need to gather as a group PDQ in the near future. Most homeowner’s associations maintain a current member list of names, addresses, phone no.s and often email addresses.

          I concur that if things were to deteriorate to the point that some are suggesting; that I sure wouldn’t want to be out in the streets during an initial melt-down of society either. If you don’t have it, stay home and learn how to do without whatever ‘it’ is. Stay out of the ‘line-of-fire’, if at all possible. It’s always the poor bastard non protester who’s in the wrong place at the wrong time who gets ‘lit-up’. The four students killed at Kent State were not protestors, they were going to and from class when they died. If you live in the city or suburbs, then you need to get serious dialog going with your families about how you are all going to hook back up if your folks are off at work or at school should an emergency occur.

          You couldn’t afford to buy a ticket for the show that we’re getting for free. The anus of the United States is puckering-up big time boys and girls.

          • We like to think we live in a brave society, but I tell you what, the cowards I have seen lately will scatter like roaches when the light is turned on. So if the cops were doing what the cops are seemingly itching to do, like actually shooting people, the streets would be bare.

            The biggest consideration is, in reality, the ethnic makeup of the United States is NOTHING like it was in 1776…and that IS the reality of it, and even though we don’t like to admit it, our ethnicity does determine to some degree what our personalities are like and, in return, whether we will allow tyranny to rule the day. To have a revolution, you actually have to make a commitment and have a passion for it, good or bad, and you actually have to pick a side…we have a lot of sheep in America nowadays.

            The other factor to consider is, unless the American government is meddling, most revolutions occur over only two things: Lack of food and lack of money (which doesn’t allow the masses to buy food), and without seeming too rude, most people I have seen claiming they have no food are very, very overweight. And it seems to take a “third” party to free the masses as they rarely do it of their own accord.

            And even if we hear about “thousands” of people marching, our nation holds roughly 330 million people, so a lot more will have to start marching, to the tune of millions, to make any changes. Right now, the military can stop thousands, but they would have a really tough time stopping millions.

            PS: The one extra thing in addition to food that I would truly want in a “troubled” hotspot is, strangely enough, a fire extinguisher because I wouldn’t want to be in those big buildings in New York without a couple of them and maybe a gas mask or two, but then you couldn’t pay me enough to live in NYC.

            The police expect return fire, in the free-er United States. I estimate about 15% of adult men are packing a pistol in public. About 10% are packing with permits. This limits the “pure force” arguement of uniformed police against larger groups.

        It’s coming. It’s part of the design. When a few cops are hospitalized or killed, the iron fist closes tight and strangles our access to freedom of expression. These various drama’s taking place around the globe have been in the makings for some time, now.

        I don’t necessarily agree with many of the “types” protesting at these events, but the bottom line is, the majority of bankers are long over due for participating in a mass lynching; their own. I do get angry when the cops come in to flaunt their “in your face”, abusive methods of controlling the masses. It’s one thing when anarchy is spreading its venom. It’s another when demonstrations are peaceful and orderly. If we can’t peacefully demonstrate against tyranny, we are doomed as a Republic.

          A lynching is a hanging without a trial. If you are suggesting that we lynch anybody, ANYBODY, in this country you are abandoning the idea of constitutional law and replacing it with mob rule. If that is so, you and I are most assuredly NOT on the same side.

          • The Moon is a Harsh Mistress says:

            The reason there is no trial is because the guilt is obvious to everyone. Another reason for lynching is when justice cannot or will not be served by going through the existing legal system. Would the nobles who lost their heads during the French Revolution ever have been tried and convicted by the king of France? They certainly used the existing legal system to their benefit, extracting an enormous amount of wealth from the peasantry who had no legal recourse. Is justice served when the head of Enron dies before the legal battles are finished, leaving his heirs to profit from the money he stole from ratepayers and shareholders? How about all those white collar criminals who steal milllions and billions from investors and end up serving less time than the blue collar criminal who stole a car?
            In general, I am against lynching and believe in the rule of law. If we as a society followed the Constitution and if judges were just then there would be very little sentiment for taking justice into one’s one hands. Lynching is a natural reaction to the perception that justice is no longer served and that the law is skewed to favor the rich and well-connected.

            @The Moon is a Harsh Mistress: If the guilt is obvious to everyone, than where is the harm in a trial? I strongly suggest you review your moral code now, and determine if you want to return our country to a government of laws, and not of men. If you decide that trials are not necessary because they are “obviously guilty” what keeps you from being the next person strung up? Start declaring that we are lynching somebody because it is “justified” and you have sunk to the level of those people we are standing against. Do you want to repeat the American Revolution? Or are you trying to repeat the French Revolution? I am not arguing against stringing them up IF FOUND GUILTY, but unless we guarantee them a fair and impartial trial, we are guilty of crimes against the inherent rights given to all of us by nature, as enshrined in the Constitution. If that happens, what does it make us? We can win the battle, but if we lose our souls in the process, we will have lost the war.

          • While, you’re technically correct, Dante, lynchings usually take place when the judge/jury has been bought off and the lynching is to server justice. When corruption hides behind the law, lynching in next. It may not be “polite” but I doubt that many lynchings ever took place against an innocent man.

The French Revolution led to the Reign of Terror, a dictator who launched a decade-long war of aggression, and the destruction of France as world power. Which revolution do you wish to emulate?

I was merely pointing out that when lynchings occur it is a symptom of percieved injustice and an attempt for people to make conditions more just in their eyes. The rule of law is supreme and needs to remain so. I’m just saying that the threat of lynchings show that justice is not being done in the eyes of those people who propose it.

            That is the philosophy of losers. Neither can the government be taken by force (though I support mass dissent and mass demonstrations which always generate violence).

            The American people can only re-establish their government by voting and collective action; creating new political structures that represent them once more.

            The current demonstrations should demand (1)the re-introduction of the Glass-Steagull Law and

            (2)the abolishment of the Patriot Act,

            (3)the abolishment of NAFTA,

            (4)new rules, with regard to China, and

            (5)the repeal of the ability of corporations to participate in elections like individuals as a start.

Passing more bailouts and refusing to pursue the very things you list does not give me much faith. They are simply being absorbed by the beast. I don’t think we should give up but I also don’t think there is a repair. I’m glad there are people like you advocating continued engagement. I just wish I could share your faith in it. I’ll continue to be engaged but as long as corrupt money and power structures are allowed to manipulate the government I think that any improvement is simply theatre.

            NR: I do not see a viable, practical alternative to engagement. Disengagement will NOT work. That is what got US where WE are as the majority of Americans have been consumed with “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”, (however that pursuit floats their boat) and have ignored politics to their detriment.

            The election of 2010 was a good first step. The election of 2012 can be another good step in the right direction too. Its going to take many elections and the focus of Americans over many years to correct the abuses.

            That is why these protests are useful, despite the influence of the Left. They get the attention of the sheeple. Eventually the sheeple will get the message.

            In fact I believe that America IS aware as polls show that almost 60% of people surveyed were dissatisfied with the direction of the country.

            Faith in engagement? Faith in America? No, certainty.

            America is an ideal. The best ideal devised by man and inspired by God for the liberation of every living soul to be all that it can be through personal choice and self determination and self government.

            They’ll never do it. TPTB are corrupt, brutal, dishonest but they are not stupid. The phrase “All hell broke loose” comes to mind but inadequately describes what would happen. It would be a military tornado of a magnitude that would make Silvester Stallone characters cry for their mommies. The Militias would organize. The UN (or any other force) would be defeated in such a matter that they would have to come up with another word to describe the “loss”. It would trigger the largest military action in the history of mankind. It will never happen that way.

            …it is for this reason that so many people in America have their own personal armories. It is a deterrent. I think on that point our founders would say, “Yep! Thats what we intended.”

        @ Justice100, your post is spot on. Police mounted units are very effective at crowd control.

        During the ’60s, SFPD utilized police on horses as an adjunct to their Tactical Squad (precursor to SWAT). During the riots at SF State (1967 or 68, can’t remember), SFPD’s Tactical Squad was called in to suppress, and they did so quite effectively with the mounted units against the protesters.

        Marxists? No Frank, they are just people who are pissed off because the rules of the game were changed in mid-play to benefit scum like the Koch brothers at the price of destroying the Amerikan working man and whatever actual Amerikan nationhood that we can say once existed.

        Don’t forget that the country club republicans love illegal immigration from countries like Mexico that have historically had big and powerful MARXIST movements on their home turf. Think of the huge communist marches that used to take place with regularity in Mexico City from the 40′s through the 70′s when you see those same marchers’ great grand kids marching in their hundreds of thousands for “immigration reform” in LA and wearing Che Guevara t-shirts.

        Republican degenerates like Ronald Reagan and Jorge W. Boosh allowed this to happen to the country so their golf courses would have a steady supply of menial troglodytes to keep the landscaping green, yet they were still able to fool hordes of Rush Limbaugh-loving nitwits into believing that they were “right wing.” Remember that in 2041 when the largest demographic in the former Amerika will be classified as “Hispanic” and they elect a presidente who promises to collectivize their republican asses.

      It is getting close. Somewhere the agents provocateur are standing by just waiting for their cue. I would bet that there are some in every city that has over 250k population.

      The instigators are not your friend and the UIs at these OWS protests are gonna get hurt. Seeing the violence is really going to piss off those that haven’t figured this charade out yet.

      This appears to be the culmination of the adolescent dreams of 60′s whack jobs like Bill Ayers and the other hippies. They are true believers in Marxism and believe that given sufficient chaos and anger toward cpaitalists in general (as opposed to the truly guilty like Geithner & Bernanke) that the American people are stupid enough to rise up and embrace socialism. Well it is true that a huge number of knuckleheads camping in the cities and their Marxist professors think they can get plenty for nothing by destroying a, less than perfect, economic system and replacing it with a system that has invariably lead to mass murder, imprisonment and the oppression of almost every single person in the country. Reality, if they succeed, is sure going to suck for them.

      I wish it would’ve happened differently. There will be no paucity of pain, misery and bloodshed. The excuse of ignorance is going to be a very hard sell with this fromer non-com.

The masses will be coming out into the woods looking for those edible critters and farm houses of full of preparations. You say you are an hour out – I think that buys you two weeks before mobile gangs start scoping out your assets and looking for easy targets. Definitely have a retreat plan at least 2 hours further out. Then, maybe then, the cost of gasoline will be so much they won’t reach you.

          Hi Clay,
          Yup, we’ve had a frost also. And I wanted to comment on the horses, I ‘ve had them to.When I saw them and read the story it upset me. It looked like one of the horses almost fell.

          One of my daughters lives in NY now. Her husband drives a bus transporting handicapped people around the city. Some of them have their home health aides with them. They need help walking.My daughter worked in a hospital with handicapped people, some on feeding tubes, have lived in instutitions most of their lives. these are people who would not be alive if they lived even seventy years ago. What will happen to them when SHTF happens.
          My daughter keeps a bug out bag ready. The day of 911 they shut down the city and you could not leave. Remember.?
          She lives in Brooklyn near the ocean. I asked my son in law what would he do if something happened and he had to make a choice between getting home and taking care of his wife and baby son, or staying with the bus and trying to deal with nine ten pepolpe who could not survive alone? He said it depended on the crises. I told him to think about it.A crisrs could happenin the middle of the day.
          In the instution my daughter worked , some of the patients had no family. She had people she became attached to. She still visits them. She would problaby bring someone home with her.

          If any of you ever needed help and you were in the northeast, I would try to help you. We never know when we might need each other. Sometimes I feel really alone up herewith most of the people in my obit not giving a second thought to what’s happening around the world and in or country. Just thinking everything is going to be alright.
          I think they will come back in the spring with a vengence.

            Hello there again Lynda,
            I think Katrina gives us a very real and very modern look at what healthcare providers and healthcare staff will do when a situation appears hopeless. Some will stay and some will go. In Katrina many could not leave as the water rose, so many workers were stuck where they were, and the decision was made for them. The issues I can see for your son are twofold, one is his legal obligation and the other is ethical/moral obligation to himself. As a nurse I have worked for the developmentally disabled in the past, so I know a little about the law in NY regarding these individuals No one will hold your son liable if his life is in danger and he is forced to abandoned his post. The next is a little more tricky! If there is no hope of rescue and the SHTF, ( let’s be clear, it had really should have hit the blades hard enough that the mess seems that it can never be cleaned up!) he can walk away to be with his family. This is where his moral obligation comes in, could he live with himself if he didn’t at least try to get help, the first fireman, cop or emt would do. This is a dilemma haunts me all the time about those who are under my care. I was brought up to believe family is everything, so I would stay at my post, but at some point I would have to go be with my family. As your son says the situation itself matters the most. For instance they drop the Bomb on Buffalo, I am outta that hospital/nursing home without so much as a by your leave. A winter storm knocks out the power on the east coast, I would probably hang out and continue care. My wife is resourceful and I have confidence she could hold things together, until I’m adequately relieved or fed up and have done all I can reasonably do. At some point I have an obligation to myself and my family and my obligation to the state ends.
            If either your son or daughter is thinking about taking one of these individuals in, like everything else they need to have a plan. My advice is make sure that the person cannot only walk, but they can walk a very long way if necessary. Do they feel the person is emotionally stable enough to handle the situation. They should have a third bug out bag for this person. They may want to consider doing respite for this person now before shtf, it will give them a better idea how this person will fit into the family dynamic. Do yourself a favor and take this person out for a nice long walk and see how they fare. Do not discuss the SHTF with this person, most of these individuals are like my 12 year old, no filter at all, or you will scare the crap out of them.
            I understand the gentlemen who owns this site is actually starting a forum, my hope is that it will be the kind where members can actually send private messages to each other. The idea of teaming up with prepared, like minded individuals is very appealing to me, but this site is a little to public to talk about plans like this in detail. I understand your feelings of isolation, you correct you never do know when we may need each others help. Keep prepping and bugging your kids about their plans, they will thank you someday. Peace

      The idea that Obama is not getting Wall Street Money – where is this coming from. It is not true. Obama has been supported by the elite wall street crowd more than any president in HISTORY.

      If you listen to Beck he said the violence is coming under the organization put forth by Van Jones. That will give Obama deniability since he fired Jones earlier.

      Obama has discredited OWS by supporting it. Even had his chinese buddies publicly support it…which was a brilliant move. Having all these different supportes actually reduces OWS power.

            Qualified candidates of qualified parties should have free and equal access to present their potential policies and programs to US so that WE can decide who WE want to manage OUR government for US.

            We can change the direction once we slow these wannabe Bolsheviks down. I am afraid that any surge of support from decent folks will just be used to try and recreate the events of October 1917.

            The change to a better country has begun. Do you have any idea how many soccer moms and blue collar dads have read books like the 5000 Year Leap to Creature From Jekyll Island to the Federalist Papers and on and on since the TEA Party movement started? From Glenn Beck to the TEA Party patriots to AFP and Freedom works and TP Nation the list goes on and on.

            As folks learn about fiat money, fractional reserve banking, history of the Illuminati and the progressive movement they are slowly teaching their children and each other to be better, smarter and more involved citizens. We are trying to undo the concerted efforts of a tireless and dedicated bunch of commies that have been working since Gramsci wrote his instructions back in 1937. I doubt he’ll place but look how much greater the support for Ron Paul is this time around.

            If we can stop the wholsale destruction of America and give time for the incipient rebirth of the love of liberty and the knowledge of how Christian principles are fundamental to freedom to grow and catch fire in the hearts of enough people we can leave a beautiful life for our posterity.

            Rash, reactive, emotion based action rarely leads to desireable ends.

      Mac, great article! The die is cast. The “Occupy” movement has not yet achieved self sustaining inertia, but it is very very close judging by the video above. Clearly there are anti-capitalist organized power brokers at work behind the scenes aiding, assisting, and funding these protesters. These protesters are clearly being assisted and motivated by a socialist/communist agenda (they may not fully comprehend), supported by the White House, that is being ignored by the news. This event provides us a rare opportunity to glimpse the enemy that is working feverishly to dismantle our way of life and usher in a new paradigm based on anarchy, socialism, communism, and redistribution of wealth.

          Willy, I agree 100%. It certainly feels like the waters are being tested before the main event is unveiled. All the ingredients are in place. We have a sharply divided country, half wants a socialist welfare state (which we already have), and the other half is holding on to traditional American values of life, liberty, pursuit of happiness, hard work, sacrifice, self reliance, Constitution, etc. We have socialists in the highest echelons of the US political system. An insolvent banking system on the knife’s edge of collapsing. We have an Executive Branch of government that is running a secret anonymous group out of the White House that is targeting and summarily killing American citizens without a trial by jury or even so much as an indictment. And a President that hates this country. The timing is difficult to predict, but whatever is in the works be it an economic implosion, or anarchists doing something foolish that serves as the catalyst, we should know within the next 14 months I think.

    37. Wall Street turning on Obama? Looks like it’s all working to plan then. In the 1934 Chicago Tribune political cartoon “Planned economy or Planned Destruction”, the “plan” is as follows: “SPEND! SPEND! SPEND! under the guise of recovery, bust the government, blame the capitalists for the failure” Ok. They’ve accomplished those. Next is “junk the Constitution and declare a dictatorship”.

      Was it this past week or last that Obama said they need to circumvent congress and get the job bill passed? He has all those czars – doesn’t need congress anyway…. and so there probably won’t be an election next year with a global collapse and all. Ya know– a huge crisis that doesn’t go to waste.

      • Martial law the won’t attempt in the rural communities; its likely to be just urban for some time. The police and reservist will enforce it. Just like they did in New Orleans after Katrina.

        The people won’t be that hard to control in those areas; want food, water, then no guns. Yes a lot will make it in to the rural territories but they won’t worry about them or care. Its only the masses they need to control.

          They will cut services in the Winter time and at night, the advantage is to have as much compliancy as possible. No heat you’ll want to be warm, no gas you cant get through the snow and your stuck with what you have, winter is harsh hands down, the cold weather gear they have now is far superior then you think. I know I cannot afford a $12k set of NVG that they probably will have. Being at night time cut off scenerio the I.R, FLIR and Digital DNVG gives them the advantage, would say anyone they have on their RED, Blue, and yellow list are the first targets Red being priority, they will disappear before anyone else and no one will know.
          In summer and spring people can flee to the hills and start crops at their bug out locations, they want these people to not have time to prep for winter and thus adapt to the land. IMO Summer lockdown is out

Then Obama can go back to the middle class sheeple and get their votes next Nov……all part of the plan man.

        The difference between then and now is that America and its people where respected based on values. Look at todays values and there is a complete lack of it from social media site to even main stream media that is Govermentally controlled. That generation, which I respect to a point, had more balls to speak out and bring the attention to others what the government was doing then one of my generation is now. Now I may not have agreed with everything they stood for, but at least they stood for something and where not afraid to do what they needed to wake up others( so to speak). OWS is just a showboat and a distraction of whats to come, the generation of Vietnam just prolonged what we fear now.

      • Posse, I want to stress that the 2 – 3 week time table was not my prediction or forecast, but a quote from the former U.S. Under Secretary of Commerce and current senior advisor to the IMF, Robert Shapiro.

        I think the system, at this point, only requires a single major trigger and it’ll go into meltdown mode… this does not necessarily mean that we’ll see an overnight hyperinflationary dollar collapse and martioal law, as I think an event like that, if it will even happen, is still a ways off (but i will not rule it out completely, of course)… With regards to Shapiro’s timetable, i believe he was referring to a credit collapse and lockup in Europe, which would then lead to what Bernanke recently hinted at, which is a destabilization of our financial markets… In such a scenario, i think the dollar would actually strengthen, while stocks, commodities, even precious metals, all see major drops.

        In my view, much of this hinges on Europe right now — but that’s not to say some event here in the US (like a BofA collapse, for example) wouldn’t lead to a similar set of reactions/consequences…

        Clark, I am the author of the second quote and I stand by it 100%. Anarchy vs. chaos is completely subjective and depends on your observations, political preferences, life experience, and host of other variables. I think anarchy is a more specific definition based on the complete lack of a cohesive message that bonds the protesters together. Chaos is way too general a term to describe the “Occupy” protests. I’m all in favor and support protests such as the Tea Party movement that have a clearly defined message that opposes an established political evil.

        The definitions of anarchy and chaos are:

        an·ar·chy
           [an-er-kee] Show IPA

        noun
        1.
        a state of society without government or law.

        2.
        political and social disorder due to the absence of governmental control: The death of the king was followed by a year of anarchy.

        3.
        a theory that regards the absence of all direct or coercive government as a political ideal and that proposes the cooperative and voluntary association of individuals and groups as the principal mode of organized society.

        4.
        confusion; chaos; disorder: Intellectual and moral anarchy followed his loss of faith.

        cha·os
           [key-os] Show IPA

        noun
        1.
        a state of utter confusion or disorder; a total lack of organization or order.

        2.
        any confused, disorderly mass: a chaos of meaningless phrases.

        3.
        the infinity of space or formless matter supposed to have preceded the existence of the ordered universe.

        4.
        (initial capital letter) the personification of this in any of several ancient Greek myths.

        5.
        Obsolete. a chasm or abyss.

        Eliminating the $300 billion that taxpayers were required to subsidize Illegals who were suppressing their wages and taking their jobs, would reduce the 2010 Annual Budget Deficit to a mere $200 billion, if Illegals were sent home.

        It would also eliminate a lot of crime. In the last ten years Illegals have committed more than One Million sex crimes. 35% of those crimes were rape.

        25% of those crimes were against minors.

    54. This is professional wrestling at a national level. You’ve got 4 contenders:

      - Communists

      - The Fascists

      - The Patriots

      - The Sheople

      Then you have people within the government that want, at any give time, to appear to support one of the above groups.

      I’m a libertarian. Don’t steal from me and don’t tell me I can’t do something if it doesn’t hurt anyone else. Otherwise, just leave me alone. All the above groups want to sway, tax, control, manipulate and lie to the other three groups and the general population. Until Americans understand that this problem is really about “Divide and Conquer”, or more accurately, Divide and Keep Week, then it will continue.

            Most people that claim libertarian are actually conservatarian which is a libertarian with a touch of authoritarian influence. The culture in which we are immersed has us coerced into believing that if it weren’t for authoritarian rule (speed limits, stop signs and their social, business and personal equivalents) are necessary for a chaos-free society. Nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, in this day and age the government uses those controls to brainwash us away from libertarianism. The fact is, libertarians often abhor such things as poverty, abortion and greedy corporations but we (I) believe that those things will be self correcting in the end and that to allow government to regulate those things will only make them worse. Maybe there are things that need regulation but government is the last/worst choice in the matter.

            …for there never was a government that had a conscience. There never was a government that didn’t murder, corrupt, poison and destroy to expand is power. (…and there never was a corporation posing as a government that has done this more than the US Government (…incorporated.)

            Again, I impress upon everyone, go read this website. It will open your eyes to what the REAL problem is, even if its just a sliver of light that gets in:

They wouldn’t be placing charges that they could trigger to cut off the section of roadways for people to flee would they if Martial Law was implemented?

Escort them out to Tim-Buck-Two with promises of work (“Work Will Make You Free”) and food then dump them off and provide neither. It’s been done before.

      as for bugging out, we have a place at the lake and 100 acres with a large swift running creek we could go to in another location but, on the latter we would be going as a last ditch effort. the only thing there is a barn, we would have to build a home of some sort. but, i worry about being able to get anywhere, here in Alabama on all the main roads, they are putting up these large spikes along side the road with large cables running through them.
      I have seen where 18 wheelers have hit these and they did not give, I have heard this is happening in other states as well, as a way to keep people from being able to turn around on the roads and then they can funnel people to where they want. any thoughts on this?

      The only way that these OPW demonstrations will be suppressed is if there begins to be a real trend towards a new political party forming. Otherwise, this is all Kubuki theater. There is only one party and all this talk is a distraction from that reality.

        What good would a new party do? Does a name change make the individuals more honest? The “change” is putting people in that have been previously untouched by politics. It’s more realistic to vote out the incumbents in the primaries of both existing party’s with grassroots people. The rough guideline is this;” Have you been in political office before above a small town level”: If the answer is yes your persona non grata.

        I would far prefer (and sooner trust) a reasonably educated person (self taught is AOK) without political experience then someone who has spent their life climbing the political ladder getting their hands increasingly dirty on each rung.

          I do not advocate a third party candidate for POTUS, but I do believe tea party movement participants should congeal at the local level to build a grassroots organization that emphasizes the Constitution. That is OUR common denominator.

            Ever think that the role of TR was to be a spoiler and get Wilson the internationalist elected? That was the job of Ross Perot that put Clinton in the WH thus securing NAFTA (because GH Bush did not have the political clout with Congress to get it passed).

            TR was a globalist with the US at the head of it. No doubt about that.

            If you want to win against “them” (establishment) become a cancer within their own organizations. A third part must go head to head with the Democrats and Republicans. When done from within by winning with grass roots in the primaries as you get politically stronger they get weaker. As my Dad says, “You don’t get into a pissing contest with a skunk”. You don’t take them heads on.

            K2: That’s an interesting thought, but given TR ego, I think he believed that he could win.

            With respect to Ross Perot, yes that is why I do not believe in a third party candidate, but NAFTA would have been passed by Bush in his second term anyway. Clinton just happened to be the globalist in power.

            Bush sr was a globalist that implemented his fathers globalism with China and bribed the CCP to accept capitalism and promised to make them part of the global elite and multi-millionaires.

            Considering the condition of China after the Cultural Revolution it was an easy choice for them. With 50 million dead in the fields and streets, what harm could capitalism do?

            {Bush Sr was a Republican appointed ambassador to China by Carter a Democrat, where as Huntsman was a Republican appointed ambassador to China by O’bummer. All of these guys are globalists.}

            The CCP have been made a part of the PTB as agreed and planned. Bush Sr ordered MIC factories like Honeywell to transfer jobs to China to begin the FREE TRADE TREASON. His father supplied Hitler until his factory was shut down during WWII.

            I agree with the strategy of “infiltration”, but all politics are local, so there is every reason to develop new grassroots and organized power structures at the local level, as the two party system has been controlled by the senior members of both parties using the operational rules of Congress and the parties themselves.

            In effect you have the American people represented by their representatives who in turn are represented by their party apparatcheks, who dole out the power and favors, who then answer to the puppeteers and dual citizens.

            The “party faithful” still control these parties, leaving the majority of Americans without a real voice, and allowing the “party faithful” to direct the money and the votes where they want. The result is crony capitalism.

            If tea party independents established their own party apparatus and local power structures, it would be possible to develop an alternative to the staus quo.

            If the independents controlled the middle with a separate party structure, both the Left and Right would need their approval to pass or repeal legislation.

            I submit the Patriot Act would not have passed under those conditions and the Glass-Steagal Act would not have been repealed.

            That local power apparatus should emphasize the US Constitution. It is the status quo that is eroding OUR liberties and killing the American economy.

          A bit out of order here but even if TR thought he could win all the better for the manipulators. If he wins they move globalism forward. If he looses they move globalism forward. It’s the same strategy they use with Democrats and Republicans; win win. They are slick, hell they wrote the damn book.

          GH Bush needed support of Democrats in Congress for NAFTA. Only Clinton could deliver that. Ross Perot was an insider, guaranteed. The players in the major parties cannot stop the primaries grassroots power. Historically the voter turnout is small relative to the overall election and the Achiles heel, the weak point. A motivated educated electorate is the key regardless.

        Big government is a big corporation and big corporations have little desire to promote freedopm.

        “True capitalism” cannot exist (except in transition) as long as there are big corporations that inevitibly buy the politicians and laws they require to increase profit. Corporations end up running the government or sometimes become subsidiarys; either way, it leads to rule by oligarchy or classic fascism, not freedom.

        Some of these “protesters” are broke and unemployed; many with massive student loan debt. Many have figured out the game is rigged, and have guessed who rigged it, but have little clue beyond that. I would rather educate them than bitch at them.

      Very ingenious strategy by the NWO. They use Barack and his union/protesters AND Wall street to initiate the NWO.

      Wall street initiates and executes global economic collapse, it is now on autopilot, there is no stopping the crash but all they can do now is put out fires on a wooden ship.

      Barack, unions and OWS are then used to attack the small group of wall street people. To bring in a new communistic system. There will be violence as they clash and many many low level, mid level and a couple of high level wall street types will be killed, hung on the street lights and burnt to death. Since, the police are “in the way” they’ll get steamrolled also.

      Soldiers brought back from IRAQ are used to enforce the “peace”.

      We have our police state in full effect.

      This way, they create the social economic class of rich and poor only, have them eat each other up, expend their energy and resources, then have a third party (soldiers) come in and take control after they are tired and exhausted.

      I also find it odd that with Israel being given the green light to attack Iran, they pull back the troops from Iraq. That could be Barack’s way of saying to Israel, you go ahead and attack Iran, but we’re not helping.
