    Fall Of The American Empire: “They Intend To Collapse the Financial System”

    Jeremiah Johnson
    December 18th, 2015

    “…for two weeks the mob had been rioting uncontrolled in the streets…The economy of the greatest empire that the world had ever seen was coming apart like an unraveling sweater…the cost of maintaining…gigantic armed forces…was bleeding the nation white and in addition there were the heavy subsidies that had to be paid to the…nations dependent…for support.  The impoverished government had neither the funds nor the power to stop the riots.”

    Readers, are we close to such a point?  It happened, for the excerpt above was taken from the book, Those About to Die, by Daniel P. Mannix, written in 1958, and the nation was the Roman Empire.  There are many similarities between the decline and fall of Rome and the decline of the United States of America, standing upon the threshold of its fall.

    As you well know, the economy is stretched to its breaking point, and the American Empire has over-extended itself, much in the manner of the now-defunct Roman Empire.  As with Rome, the United States has experienced a severe influx of illegal aliens, encouraging “immigration” by individuals who (most of them) come to the U.S. not to contribute, but to consume, or even worse: to “conquer,” as a fifth-column.  The conquest (especially for illegal aliens crossing the border illegally from Central and South America) is actually seen as such: a “retaking” of Aztlan, alleged land in the U.S. these aliens claim historically as their own, the whole “process” called La Reconquista, or “the re-conquest.”

    The Roman Empire had done this, in a manner:

    “Throughout its history, [the Roman Empire] had taken in outsiders: a constant stream of individuals looking to make their fortune…supplemented by large-scale migrations.”

    (The Fall of the Roman Empire, by Peter Heather, p. 159) 

    “Multiculturalism” as is very evident in Europe (the latest being Norway, paying non-Norwegian individuals up to $9,800 to pack up and leave) is currently tearing the countries of Europe apart.  France, Germany, Sweden, and Britain, among others.  Individuals that do not speak the native language maintain their cultures of origin without assimilating, and they end up on the public dole.

    Here in the U.S. this is a direct extension of Cloward-Piven, to be able to reduce the populace to one that is completely dependent upon the government for all support.  Ancient Rome had the daily bread dole and heavy subsidies for Roman workers who could not compete with the cheaper goods from foreign labor and imports.

    And our fiat monetary system is about to collapse.  Dave Hodges recently put out an article entitled Key Bankers Told Bank Holiday is Near-Read This Before Taking Money Out of the Bank, and this article reveals that the bankers are preparing for “widespread banking failure.”  Such preparations have included “dry runs” in conjunction with FEMA and DHS.  The bankers held a secret meeting in Albuquerque, NM, where the participants signed non-disclosure statements.  In a manner right out of Solzhenitsyn’s “Gulag Archipelago I,” if these bankers violate them and leak information, all of their property will be confiscated and they will proceed directly to Fort Leavenworth, KS for a 25-year sentence at hard labor.

    In the manner of Ancient Rome, corruption is rampant in the economy and in all sectors of governmental leadership to enable such a thing to transpire.  A report is in circulation that even precious metals vendors are worse than the banks themselves: for every 325 ounces “sold” on paper, the report has it, only 1 physical ounce is in the possession of the company “selling” the gold.  This is paralleled by our own crooked Federal Reserve System.

    A few years ago, Sheila Bair (then CEO of the FDIC) revealed that depositors were insured up to $50 billion dollars.  Ms. Bair neglected to mention that bank accounts totaled $1 trillion in deposits.  Fractional reserve banking allowed these financial institutions to lend out $5 for every $1 taken in.  A casino is more honest: they actually have the money to pay you, and you’re actually allowed to cash in your chips without a Suspicious Activity Report (SAR) being filed.

    For those of you waiting for acknowledgement of it, yes, all of this ties in with the globalist oligarchs intentionally collapsing the system to be able to enable the downfall of the U.S. and the transformation into a global government with them at the head.  Interesting to watch is the situation developing in Ukraine, where the Ukrainian military has agreed to take part in NATO exercises in Poland as a member nation.

    It is a fact that the current Ukrainian government is a puppet, created by the U.S. State Department and the Administration by the U.S.-sponsored coup d’état and the ousting of Yanukovych.  None of this could have been accomplished by the U.S. without the support and go-ahead of the IMF and the banking oligarchs from the Western nations.  We will see what this will cause, as this is a direct provocation to Russia, who has declared that it will not allow a NATO takeover of Ukraine, from a military or economic perspective.

    Domestically the secret meetings and backroom deals between the major “too big to fail” (but not too big to fleece the U.S. taxpayer to bail out) financial institutions clearly points to an event on the horizon where they intend to directly or indirectly collapse the financial system.  The criminal Federal Reserve has raised interest rates, as the phony employment numbers and faked recovery statistics are glowingly embellished and parroted by the mainstream media whose lips kiss every proffered part of the administration, the masters of the press.

    Pure common sense dictates that our economy, as with Ancient Rome’s, is coming apart at the seams, sped along by those whose only interests are of power and the promulgation of power.  To summarize, I utilize the aforementioned work of Mr. Peter Heather, with his closing words:

    “By virtue of its unbounded aggression, Roman imperialism was ultimately responsible for its own destruction.” 

    The United States has followed in this way:  its officials are corrupt, and the population is morally defunct and self-serving in the majority.  A new time of the Dark Ages is upon us, and the saddest thing of all is that we have brought it upon ourselves.  By complacency, or by direct actions, each of us has brought it upon ourselves.  May God help all of us, and our country to not go the entire path of Ancient Rome.

      • Acid Etch says:

        Only 39 of 91 Emperors died of natural causes.

        The foremost cause of the fall of the Roman Empire was too much infighting over political power.

        Contrary to popular belief, the barbarians did not destroy Rome. They took it over and continued it. Islam destroyed Rome. The Islamic invasion collapsed 2/3 of the European economy.

        • Lone wolverine says:

          Acid please watch this video! Why we are afraid the 1400 year old secret Dr. Bill Warner . It will prove you right to everyone!

        • Stephen says:

          You are 100% correct. We might have a chance if these loudmouth pessimists knew this. Their divisiveness is more destructive nationally than any issue they cry about. The country “has to fail and required to fail” for the pessimists (political and economic) to be right. They’ll look pretty bad if things workout but the are pronouncing a curse on their homeland, a self-fufilling prophesy. They offer no solutions, just this cowardly whining and complaining.

          • Anonymous says:

            Didn’t hear pessimism before 2007, did you? You can count me as one of them. Way to much shit going on to put on a happy face.

            • Could not agree more. Anybody that thinks things are gonna work out has not been paying attention for the last 10 years at all and obviously does not know what is happening as we speak. To say it in another way, these people would be the believers of the many illusions we all live under here in USSA today !

              What they do not grasp is that there is no solution as they think of solutions in the old paradigm of political and economic events. The current system has to collapse for a new start. There is no other way. And we do not know how that will pan out,although it should be obvious it will mean many will suffer and nearly everything people think of as their stuff or what they value, will be lost and a new value system will be the norm. There will be a RESET and it is already in motion as we speak. The only solution to any of it is to be prepared in every possible way, that includes your health,fitness and mindset. Beans and bullets are NOT the answers by themselves, not even close.

      • Acid Etch says:

        The Bible is written in Hebrew and Aramaic (OT), and Greek (NT).

        What is Aramaic? The Syriac language spoken by Yeshua. The Koran is written in Syriac script.

        The Nestorian church had immense libraries and a great tradition of scholarship, until Muslims burned 90% of the books in these lands. The great church of the east now lies in ruins.

        • Nuke em Duke says:

          Interesting Acid……
          Here is my own curious question:
          If the Bible us written in Hebrew and Aramaic, why then are almost ALL the chapters named after apostles with ENGLISH names?
          The list goes on and on…….
          I have been to the Middle East……have NEVER met a local with a name like that.
          But 2000 years ago???
          Come on!!!
          The were no people called Peter, Mark or Timothy 2000 years ago, where there?

          • You’ve asked a good question. The reason is that Paul, Timothy, Simon, Peter, Mark are all translations of the mother tongue names they had. They are the English equivalents. Just like “Jesus” is the English translation of his Hebrew name, which was Y’shua (Joshua, or Jesus, which is the Greek version of Y’shua). Make sense?

          • grandee says:

            Paul=of Latin origin; Paulus, the name of a Roman and of an apostle:–Paul, Paulus.

            Peter=petrov Petros, pet’-ros, rock

            Mark=Marcus was his Latin surname. His Jewish name was John, which is the same as Johanan (the grace of God).

            Timothy=Timoyeov Timotheos, tee-moth’-eh-os

          • That is an interesting perspective and something worth looking into. Sounds like the Roman Catholic Church of England may have changed the names to suit themselves (but from what?) Just another mystery regarding the origins of man – the true origins. Not the baloney we are taught in school or is parroted by our government.

          • Kulafarmer says:

            Religion is nothing more than another means employed throughout the ages to wield control over others,,,,
            All pure BS
            You can have faith without religion

            • Not true! Tell me how someone without a religion can possibly interpret the meaning kulafarmer???? what is your faith in…Beer, Money, Sex??? Which one?

              Religion is the enlightenment of a persons soul and a teaching of being closer to god through moral understandings. America was founded by Christians and the Constitution bill of rights all come from Christian moral beliefs. Our bill of rights are meant for Americans to be free NOT controlled.

              I have served with people like you and once bullets start flying and stuff blowing up all around they prayed to God. You can act tough all you want and disregard your sins but in the end you will pray to God for forgiveness. Mark My Words!

          • joetentpeg says:


            Perhaps why the original names were ‘Paulus’, ‘Timothius’, ‘Simonius’, ‘Petrus’, and ‘Marcus’ (almost like Marcus Aurelius).

            Hope that helps ya.

            ps. Yeah, I know it’s a dead language, but some folks called it ‘Latin.’ Ya know, like the language of the Roman Empire.

          • Apophasis says:

            Shirley, you’re joking and that post was some form of sarcasm, or something. Just in case not, um, those ENGLISH names are what’s called “anglicized” forms… From citydata, after a brief search:

            Jesus spoke Aramaic (sister dialect of Hebrew) His name was Yeshua. Aramaic can be found even in Genesis (Berisheth–Genesis 31:47). He was known as the king of the Yehudi (Jews). The name Apostle in Aramaic(Seliah) means to be sent.

            The twelve Apostles and their name meanings.
            Simon Peter–Aramaic–Simon (Shim’on)–means God has heard–Peter (Cephas/Kephas) means rock
            Andrew–A GREEK name–means Adam, man, manly–He’s Peter’s brother
            John–Aramaic/Hebrew–(Yochanan)–means God is gracious
            James/Jacob–Aramaic–(Ya’aqov)–means to follow, heel
            Thomas–Aramaic–(Tau’ma)–means twin
            Matthew–Aramaic–(Mattityahu)–means gift of God
            Simon the Cananaean–Aramaic–means the zealot or jealous one
            Philip–A GREEK name–means lover/friend of horses
            Bartholomew–Aramaic–means son of farmer/furrow/hill (He was also known as Nathanael)
            Judas Iscariot–Aramaic–(Yehuda)–means praised one
            James the younger–Aramaic–(Ya’aqov) means to follow, heel
            Matthias(chosen after Judas)–Aramaic–(Matityahu)variant of Matthew–means gift of God
            Thaddaeus–Aramaic–means heart–brother of James

            If you’re curious the name of Mark is Latin (Marcus) and means sea green or hammer—The name of Luke is Greek (Loukas) and means from Luciania (Italy)Timothy is a Greek name that means honouring God. Titus is Latin and means to honor or defender.

            As Christianity spread across Europe those biblical names became emulated. Some evolved. Some names were translated, the names had a meaning, thus they were translated by meaning to other languages.

            Example: The name Jesus does not exist in Hebrew or Arimaic, it was a literal translation into Latin/Greek and means Deliverer, or Deliverance, or Savior.

            It really isn’t a conspiracy or plot by Satan.

          • Nuke em Duke says:

            Thank you all for your kind and considered replies.
            It does seem reasonable that these names have been Westernized from original forms.
            Merry Christmas to you all 🙂

          • Professor Higgins says:

            Nuke em Duke: Funny you should mention language; it’s rather odd that Genesis (supposedly) by Moses around 1400 BCE in Hebrew, 400 years before even Proto-Hebrew was ever used, let alone the Hebrew of the O.T. Must be one of those “miracles” I’ve read about. In reality, it seems more like one of the many back-dated myths than anything else.

            • Plan twice, prep once says:

              Prof Hig,
              No miracle, Moses was raised in the court of Pharoh and was taught along side the children of Pharoh to read and write in several languages, his mother who was his wet nurse would have taught him the language of the Hebrews who came from Canan and likely spoke and wrote Canaanite.

              The alphabet of the Canaanites is sited as the likely source for Hebrew. If we believe there is a factual basis for the bible, we would need to accept that Moses was inspired of God, and therefore may have been an early inventor or at least improved on the written version of Hebrew. Moses then had decades to teach the scribes all they needed to know.

              A couple years back I was in Baleze visiting ancient pyramids. At the site there was a display of hieroglyphic stone tablets (copies) from all over Central America. Even though the the various locations spoke different dialects, the written language was amazingly uniform? I made this observation to the guide, an amateur archeologist and it blew him away, he’d never heard this before. It seems that a scribe that could record and translate for kings and noblemen was highly valued in any ancient culture. The families or guilds that protected the written word, were likely all related. They were to the ancient world what international bankers are to the nations of our modern world.

              In any battle between cities, one of the great spoils would be to get the other kings scribes and wise men, thus Daniel was taken to the court of Babylon. This meant there was a lot of cross breeding of ideas across regions that traded and competed with each other.

              • Plan twice, prep once says:

                A touch more.

                Our archeologist guide was not astounded by the fact that the written language was quite uniform, this fact he already knew, but he had never asked why? Cities a hundred miles apart, divided by mountains and jungle some how shared writing, while language was diverse. Interesting point of a conceptual hieroglyphic language is, once understood Is somewhat dialect independent. He especially like my biblical reference to Daniel being taken to the Court of Nebuchadnezzar.

      • john stiner says:

        There was a run on the bank all across the USA in 2008. It just happened from everybody’s living room with the click of a mouse.

        I moved all of my retirement funds in January 2008 into government bonds then the collapse happened in September 2008.

        In September 2008 everybody else started moving their money too which facilitated the collapse, basically a run on the bank.

        Everybody that ate shit in 2008 will be smart enough to move their money earlier, which will still facilitate the coming collapse.

        • Spring Heeled Jim says:

          Just moved all my retirements funds into the Wasatch-Hoisington U.S. Treasury Fund (WHOSX). I grimace at what may happen in the market in 2016 and/or 2017.

          • Hildebeast says:

            No ‘fund’ is safe.

            • john stiner says:

              Government bonds are the safest place for your retirement funds as they won’t go negative.

              The problem is this: The rate of inflation often times is higher than the rate of return on the government bonds.

              The real problem is that most people can not take their retirement money out until the actually retire. So the MAN is holding their money hostage.

              • Spring Heeld Jim says:

                That is why I will hold my WHOSX fund until the day(s) of Wall Street carnage arrive, and I can sell it to reinvest elsewhere. There should be many good funds that have declined due to overall selling frenzy, which is the time to buy (and later sell high).

              • Beppie says:

                Not so fast please, all assets based on paper promises are worthless.The people of this nation are totally oblivious when it concerns money. If you do not have your money,money being roughly defined as anything of value that can be exchanged for something of value that will always be valuable. Examples would be land, food, diamonds and precious metals. The long history of mankind has proven time and time again that placing your faith in paper promises is folly at best and downright ignorant at worst.

          • Nuke em Duke says:

            So let me get this right…….
            You have just posted here, at a site that basically says that TS is going to HTF…….that the US Government will eventually buckle and collapse……and you are now boasting that you have moved ALL of your retirement funds into a financial instrument DIRECTLY GEARED to the debt issuance of US Government!!!
            Hello……EARTH TO JIM……….

            Mate…….listen…….I’ve got some AMAZING Dutch Tulips in my car…..guaranteed, sure fire investment winner.
            Just throw me a few hundred thousand and I’ll turn it into 5 Mill for you. No risk.
            Fair Dinkum Jim……reverse course son, before the S really does hit the F.

            • Spring Heeled Jim says:

              Jim Rickards is recommending it in his Strategic Intelligence! WHOSX is an actively managed mutual fund. Rickards says its the best way to invest in Treasury bonds. He also states that fund managers can adjust the mix of bond holdings in response to changing conditions. It delivers an impressive 8.1% compound annual return over the past decade.

              Jim states management wouldn’t hesitate to concentrate assets into 30 year Treasury bonds because the collapse of the $ would send their prices soaring. During the last crisis in 2008, the Treasury bond Index rose 15% while the S&P 500 Index crashed 28%. Jim Rickards says it’s “One Safe Haven Where The Elites Hide Their Money.”

              • Nuke em Duke says:

                When it comes to finance, there is no such thing as a safe haven Jim.
                Time will prove that.
                Look at the dictionary for the word “bond”.
                It means “a promise”.
                Again I respectfully say unto ye……..if you a placing 100% of your money into US Government Promises…….well……we all know how good the US Government is at keeping its promises to the world.

        • Whirled Peas says:

          Ludwig Von Mises, the Austrian economist: “There is no means of avoiding the final collapse of a boom brought about by credit expansion. The alternative is only whether the crisis should come sooner as the result of a voluntary abandonment of further credit expansion, or later as a final and total catastrophe of the currency system involved.”

          Gold baby, gold.

          • The only means is to transfer credit paper into hard assets. Land, shelter, food, water, guns, bullets, etc. On a larger scale, companies with hard assets… and good management. I had a customer who withdrew his life savings and paid cash for his dream house. I hope he has a garden in. However, it wasn’t totally crazy if he loves the house that much. Stock certificates are toilet paper and digitally held stocks can’t even be burned for warmth. Federal Reserve Notes are toilet paper. Survive this level of crash? No debt, hard assets, and life skills.

        • laura m. says:

          John Stiner: I got I bonds, is that what you got? I have been doing a form of a bank run for sometime. When direct deposits hit the bank like retirement, SS and his military pension, I draw out cash, also get cash back at grocery stores, use debit for some purchases incl bartering items to stash away, etc. Me and others have CD’s in credit unions only, feel it’s safer than banks, T bills aren’t paying anything right now. Anyone know best safe investments now days to get from a broker like E.Jones? I already have some Muni’s in state, tax free.

          • john stiner says:

            I participated in a 457 plan. Money was taken out of my paycheck pre-tax then put into mutual funds. I used two organizations, Nationwide and ICMA.

            The mutual funds purchase various stocks. When the stocks collapse, so do the mutual funds.

            The biggest problem is that you can’t cash out and leave. You have to keep the money in the 457 plan until you retire or you quit your job.

            I have since retired (in 2014). The big screwing I got is that the Government took 30%. 20% is the regular tax, then 10% more because I am less than 59 years old.

            Turns out that I got less back than I put in. The government took all the earnings and some of the principal.

            It made me realize that “saving for retirement” was just another government lie to screw the people over.

            • I had similar problems when I cashed out one 401k after 59.5. My payout was substantially lower than expected. Got nothing but by runaround on daily market numbers… but a buy is always jacked up and a sell jacked down. I am out of Wells Fargo. Thank God.

              • Spring Heeled Jim says:

                Why did you cash the whole amount out? I would have chosen to ride it out a bit longer till things improved. You don’t lose money until you actually sell.

                • I did ride out the market crash. This was well afterward. I transferred my accounts into a self-directed IRA… but my stock exposure was too high and I wanted to shift that one small account out. They did punish me, on leaving their bank, all the way around. I do not believe in buying stock anymore. All the corporations have shifted to Enron accounting so you can no longer read the books and see where they are. My guess is that money will disappear into the black hole. I hope having no mortgage, a garden, and life skills will take care of me anyway. If I am wrong… glory hallelujah.

                  • Agree on all points you are on the right track to be sure !

                  • I try hard to do the right things, but the Bigs are changing the rules so fast now it is like running in a nightmare. I have strengths, but I also have serious weaknesses. I am so not mechanical it would be funny if not so freaking painful. My son has always picked that up for me… starting at about 8 years old he was light years ahead of me. He jokes that I am either 100% or 0% on any given subject. An exaggeration, of course, but you get the idea. Bug out? I would have to go pale cuz all that equipment would never work in my hands. And yet I am a gardener. Sigh. When I read technical stuff on here my eyes glaze over.

                  • well Rebecca we all have strengths and weaknesses of varying degree and issues. I personally have come to dislike much of what we call tech these days because I see it used as a tool to mind eff the masses in many ways ? Yet I managed to use it effectively and built a great website to inform many people of the many illusions we all live under. Also how to heal themselves and get super strong and fit rather easily. And believe me I am NOT a techy at all. So focus on your strengths and get healthy and fit ! Your overall understanding is incredibly important as it is for anybody as a tool going forward. Just as our skill set is and you can expand that rather easily these days with the net! It is a two edged sword and can be used for your benefit. The main issue is understanding the many illusions forced on all of us ! That is what will set you free and put you on the best path.

    2. Fall Of The American Empire: “They Intend To Collapse the Financial System”

      Why yes, yes they will – I can foresee them creating a “cyber attack” to the financial markets and blame Russia/Iran/Syria ..etc. whoever is on Washington D.C.s shit list for the collapse.

      They’ll blame whoever and as usual, take no personal responsibility – which is rather moot considering they don’t know what “responsibility” means.

      • They just passed the most breath-taking anti-American “budget” in history, in which jobs are given to foreigners, massive amounts of money is going to illegal aliens, and continued funding for the Planned Parent Hoods.

          You forgot the tax breaks, corporate and otherwise, which will increase the deficit much as Junior Bush fought 2 wars without raising the money to pay for them which caused our deficit to begin with. 20 years ago I attended a class on the rise and fall of empires. The characteristics included manufactured goods being imported, devaluation of currency due to increased military spending, a mercenary army, control of the government by the rich and merchants, increasing gap between rich and poor, dependence on a non sustainable energy system etc.
          keep in mind that 100 years ago, the sun never set on the British empire. Their navy was the strongest in the world, the pound was the reserve currency. After 2 world wars bankrupting them, their empire was toast by the Suez Canal incident in the mid 50’s. The Benton woods agreement made the US the new world power and the dollar the reserve currency.
          Thanks to the neocon imperialists, the failure of the Chicago, Austrian, neoliberal economics, the corruption of our politics, we are collapsing quickly. And it’s our own fault. We the people have brought into right wing fachist corporate propaganda and it won’t take much to turn us into Hitlarian Germany. The Donald Trumps, Michael Savages, Rush Limblaughs of the world are not your friends, they are entertainers saying what you want to hear for ratings. As Morton Downey Jr who played the same game as Trump did in the 90’s admitted before he died his show was all an act. Watching Sunday football and tv won’t keep us from the consequences of our insanity and ignorance. Only an awakening spiritually and emotionally will. Gary

          • I must have attended the same class. All empires fall the same way. You wrote the long list. Here’s the shortlist for dummies: hubris.

            As for for surviving the fall… Romans are still in Rome and Britons are still in Britain. Survival counts.

        • agree on all points and no doubt we have been betrayed once more in grand style !

          “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”

          Here is a superlative essay of constructive and sensible ideas. Old Colonel Boyd and his OODA Loop was on to something pretty spectacular:

          It isn’t a new idea, Sun Tzu in his ‘On The Art of War’ laid the groundwork for what we are going to have to do. But Col. Boyd updated and gave it a contemporary sprucing up…
          “…the contention that control of the battlefield is not necessarily a factor of outnumbering the enemy; rather of disrupting his rational decision making process and of exploiting the ensuing confusion.”

          Right there says a shitload. Go Read his his words and believe.
          Its going to be a 4 dimensional battlefield, and it won’t be a matter of beans and our rifles that wins, it is how we use our heads, and all the resources we have in this great nation. Hearts and minds, and most likely around 3 percent will be on the sharp end. It is contingent on the rest of us to take supporting roles in one fashion or another. And the resources at our disposal are immense. It isn’t only the purview of the fuckers running things. Never was, they and their power are freeloaders when you get down to it. What we have is an embarrassment of riches compared to any a revolutionary had at their disposal in all of history. Its utilizing it properly and to great effect which is going to determine the outcome for us.

            According to my sources, a number of those with flag rank are silently strategizing, as a mental exercise, not unlike a “crossword puzzle”, what steps could be taken and when, to restore the government to the People.

            Once the Grass Roots Rebellion is in full bloom, as the People’s reaction to Martial Law & Gun Confiscation spreads across the nation, expect divisions between retired and active service officers, and also areas of quiet cooperation.

            The silent majority which is silent no more, now that a prominent public figure (Trump) is actively and loudly challenging the “transformation of America”, is giving moral support to these Flag Officers whether they know it or not.

              • The International Criminal Court formed by 122 countries has been investigating Bush/Cheney war crimes since 2007. The US is not a member and is currently protecting both men from arrest. Bush/Cheney cannot easily leave the US because they might be kidnapped and tried for war crimes…. what country wants that mess? Even Canada does not want them due to extreme hatred toward them for war crimes, riots around their presence, and the fear of assassination or kidnapping. They are two dirty bad boyz that created hatred of the United States with their war crimes. Can they technically leave? Yeah maybe. Can they travel freely? Nope. I saw some silliness about Britain banning Trump from entering their country. I guess this is how this rogue nation will united the world against it and get its assets kicked like Hitler/Germany. We now have decades of accumulated war crimes committed in South America and the Middle East. Not for our protection, but for corporate power and international banksters.

            • Capitalism devolves into Oligarchy (corporatism) devolves into socialism/communism devolves into capitalism. When the oligarchs press too hard they get communism. When they value their lives, they get socialism. Capitalism is a rough game… that is why corporatism spend so much money buying oligarchy. Socialism (oligarchy) for the Big Boyz comes long before socialism for the masses. It breaks… back to capitalism. The natural life span for a corporation is 20 years without government assistance. And they know it.

              • The original oligarchs were kings and lords. Ours are corporate heads… hence corporatism. It is a new take on oligarchy… coming out of democracy/republics… which were designed to end the rule by kings. Our founding fathers said we would have to have a revolution every 200 years or so. And so we shall when a leader will arise. Or not. Democracy/Republics are a lot of work.

              “IN GOD WE TRUST”
              A thought to remember, Marx said, “Remove one freedom per generation and soon you will have no freedom and no one would have noticed.”
              There was a chemistry professor in a large college that had some exchange students in the class. One day while the class was in the lab, the professor noticed one young man, an exchange student, who kept rubbing his back and stretching as if his back hurt. The professor asked the young man what was the matter.
              The student told him he had a bullet lodged in his back. He had been shot while fighting communists in his native country who were trying to overthrow his country’s government and install a new communist regime. In the midst of his story, he looked at the professor and asked a strange question.
              He asked: “Do you know how to catch wild pigs?”

              The professor thought it was a joke and asked for the punch line. The young man said that it was no joke. “You catch wild pigs by finding a suitable place in the woods, and you put corn on the ground. The pigs find it and begin to come every day to eat the free food.

              “When they are used to coming every day, you put a fence down one side of the place where they are used to coming. When they get used to the fence, they begin to eat the corn again and you put up another side of the fence.

              “They get used to that and start to eat again. You continue until you have all four sides of the fence up with a gate in the last side .

              “The pigs, which are used to the free corn, start to come through the gate to eat that free corn again. You then slam the gate on them and catch the whole herd.

              Suddenly the wild pigs have lost their freedom. They run around and around inside the fence, but they are caught. Soon they go back to eating the free corn. They are so used to it that they have forgotten how to forage in the woods for themselves, so they accept their captivity.”

              The young man then told the professor that is exactly what he sees happening in America . The government keeps pushing us toward Communism/Socialism and keeps spreading the free corn out in the form of programs such as supplemental income, tax credit for unearned income, tax exemptions, tobacco subsidies, dairy subsidies, payments not to plant crops (CRP), welfare entitlements, medicine, drugs, etc., while we continually lose our freedoms, just a little at a time.

              One should always remember two truths: There is no such thing as a free lunch, and you can never hire someone to provide a service for you cheaper than you can do it yourself.

              If you see that all of this wonderful government “help” is a problem confronting the future of democracy in America , you might want to share this with your friends.

              If you think the free ride is essential to your way of life, then you will probably not share this.

              BUT, God help us all when the gate slams shut!

              Quote for today: “The problems we face today are there because the people who work for a living are now outnumbered by those that vote for a living”

              “Any man who thinks he can be happy
              and prosperous by letting the government
              take care of him— better take a closer look
              at the American Indian.”
              Henry Ford.

      In the end, for various reasons that tend to form around greed, people making goods are not sufficiently compensated to purchase them. As the wealth was transferred out, debt replaced wages, financial deregulation then allowed the formerly illegal to become just plain old unethical . At some point the facade is lifted, reality based one plus one equals two takes over, and here we are.

      cicero’s quote about traitors and what theyre cable of doing to a nation

      • rednek101 says:

        “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”

        ― Marcus Tullius Cicero

      The crap hits the fan when the EBT cards have insufficient funds… That wont happen until we can no longer borrow money. It is gonna happen, the only questions is what is gonna trigger it. No one knows when that will be, or what it will be. But the way these politicians are selling us out is greatly expediting the demise of this country.

      My guess is they could continue to limp this system for a few more years. Unless – Europe collapses, we have a major terrorist attack like 911, a major racial incident, the bubba effect happens like the Bundy thing only this time they start shooting, gasoline supply issues, major coordinated cyber attacks, we already have issues with the coal companies they are killing them with regulations to the point of near bankruptcy and they are doing that before we have a suitable replacement.

      I could go on…. But the point is that the chances that none of this, even multiple of these wont happen over the next year or two is just not realistic.

      I for one believe that the big crash will be the best thing that has happened to America in a long time. That is what will wake up enough people and drive enough passion to restore our Republic.

      ( As a side note to the Bundy Ranch statement above- Not many people know that as the DHC had their snipers in place watching the ranchers, there was a Marine sniper there- fresh out of Iraq- with the ranchers that had a sniper rifle watching the feds… also there were multiple former Marines and Soldiers there with AR’s. True story- look it up on the Oath keepers website, watch the speech from the president of Oath keepers.) If the feds would have given the order for their snipers to fire, the Marine on the ranchers side would have taken them out and that my friends would have kicked off not only a collapse but a revolutionary war.

        They will always be able to borrow money as its created out of thin air by decree and known as fiat (decree) currency.

        Purchasing power is an entirely different issue inversely proportional to the above.

        • USMC1982 says:


          That s true, but if they start printing as much as they borrow every year.. Inflation will bring on the collapse. They have kicked the can almost as far as it will go.

    28. Tom Johnson says:

      To blame the American public for the forth coming collapse is like having the passengers of a bus get the blame for the crash of the bus. The banksters took over the financial system back in 1913. Since then, they have bought everything; CONgress, the pharmicudical industry, the military industrial complex and all of the media. They control everything and are responsible for the dumbing down of the American population. Yes, the banksters will crash the system and blame it on the “stupid ” Americans, all the while they slip out the back door with the trillions of dollars stolen by the comotose American sheeple.
      But there is one problem, even the dumbed down sheeple have drawn a line in the sand when it comes to gun confiscation. When Obama comes to take the guns, the revolution will begin… Get ready….

    29. Philosopher says:

      Excellent article. The various reasons given for the fall, or as I prefer to call it, the implosion of the Roman Empire are varied. Certainly Rome debased their currency. They also continued to provide various forms of welfare and entertainment to keep the populace content. In the end, the status and value that could be obtained by remaining a Roman citizen was worthless. What happened? Farmers quit farming and walked away from their fields because the taxes were too high. Why work when you do not profit? Why work when the government takes all of your profit and leaves you with nothing? Oh this is going to happen in the USSA sooner, rather than later. Many of us have opted out and do not pay the IRS anything and this is intentional.

      • Karl V. says:

        During the past couple of weeks, I’ve watched ‘Miracle on 34th Street’ several times. One of my favorite scenes contains the cautionary speech given by the political fixer to Judge Harper during a brief court recess.

        It is jarring to hear him mention all of the jobs that would be affected by a court ruling against Mr Kringle:

        Toy manufacturers (and union jobs, no less!), department stores, greeting card companies, candy makers….

        ….and most of those are long gone now. Many of the big department stores have closed or are on the ropes. Just try to find a toy made in the USA; if you do, it’s practically a curiosity in and of itself. Most greeting cards are printed in Asia. Candy still seems to be made here for the most part, but I notice increasingly that tiny print in hard-to-see shades of color on the back of some packages indicates that more and more candy is being made in Mexico.

        The observation of just how dramatically the elements from this one movie scene have changed –and all of it happening just during the lifetime of most of us– provides us with a microcosm of the whole crumbling system.

        I am sickened at the numbers of kids nowadays who are determined to get a college education so they can go into social work or public policy work or nonprofit work and put their shining liberal ideals into practice. Apparently they feel confident that there will be a never-ending flow of money to support non-productive paper-pushers; and given the current state of affairs, who can blame them?

        I don’t know whether things will end with a bang or a whimper…. but either way, it sure makes since to stock up on goods now, while I still can. I just hope that I am able to hang on to what I own. That’s the part that is becoming more and more uncertain.

    31. Billy says:

      In the history of the world many different methods have been used by oppressive governments to control peoples and societies. At least these six methods were and are always used; control of land and its use, limiting the movement of people, control over the money and currency, trying to forbid the ownership of personal weapons, limiting information to a small circle, and distraction.
      The ruling powers (regardless of what they call it) also always looked at the people as nothing more than a resource base for them. To tax and confiscate labor, time, effort, and goods. To fight their wars (that’s why propaganda is necessary, to convince and mislead the public into fighting). To be manipulated in ways to only help the rulers power to grow. For example, the taxpayers are subsidizing their own demise because the government will not stop illegal immigration, they are expanding it with more and more expensive programs and totally turning a deaf ear to us.
      In addition to all this, the bereaucrats and elected officials despise the middle class. In literature from all over the world you can read how TPTB would say the people were nothing, only fit to exist as the state desires. You must stop believing that government is of, by, and for the people, this is a grotesque lie repeated again and again and again.
      On an individual basis the only way ou can restore your personal dignity, worth, and sovereignty is withdraw as much as possible from interaction with government and all its institutions. Legally make yourself as poor as possible on paper to reduce taxes, stop voting- period, save your money (and not in banks), stop buying what you don’t need, educate yourself and think for yourself. Use your time for you and your family-not the “community”. Take nothing and ask for nothing. Insist on exercising your rights, ridicule the state and its minions frequently and publicly.

    32. Grampa says:

      We cannot homogenize cultures like we make a cake. Even when we have all the elements to make the perfect cake it can still fall flat. Predictably when we put the more complicated elements of people from different nations together they like oil and water don’t mix without force. A government and a people who think that this may be accomplished by passage of a few laws are headed for the same fall as Rome. When we have cultures that are so different not just in basic knowledge but centuries in lifestyle cannot be put together without conflict. The forced introduction of our political organization cannot be forced upon religious practice rooted at the same level for centuries without progress in adapting to the modern world. When we have political force that tries they will be confronted by the pressure from both sides and again like Rome will fall. So without much of a prediction we can see where America heads.

    35. Hi gang! From what I’ve understood, Rome fell from 4 things more or less.

      One is it was a vast protection racket that spanned the inhabited western world and some of the middle eastern world. Criminality can’t survive without more and more prey.

      The next issue is they stopped sending their own (meaning actual Romans) sons to war and hired mercs and auxiliaries to a greater and greater extent untill the end. The end that was brought upon them by the mercs and auxiliaries they employed. This as well as offering citizenship to more and more people till it lost any value it previously held.

      As their economy grew worse and worse, the emperors resorted to debasing their currency untill it was worthless, and this drove the final nail into the coffin.

      Lastly, it was time for it to go as determined by the almighty.

    43. Billy says:

      It may be a good thing to break up the USA into 4 or 5 new countries. Then we can move to the one that most appeals to each of us. For example, those who like heavy-handed, big brother government (usually the takers) can move to a new country where the state intrudes into people’s lives, have high taxes, heavy restrictive regulations, and everyone sucks the government teat; maybe in the new nation that would likely incorporate New England or West Coast. Those of us who treasure liberty, freedom, our God- given rights, and want to live our own lives (the producers) will live in another.
      The quality of life and standard of living and security does not necessarily depend on the geographic a size of the nation. This fact is obvious by merely comparing those features in countries around the world. In case you haven’t noticed countries all over the world have been breaking apart (technology is enabling it, in reality government hates the Internet and personal computer technology) and this trend will only accelerate including in the USA, Canada, Russia, and China. Governments don’t like it but it is inevitable.
      It is time to admit another truth, those countries that historically have had the least diverse societies are the ones that have existed the longest and had the longest periods of peace. In the long-term no nation can stand an internal clash of cultures, it usually breaks apart; and if not actually broken apart then reduced to third world status. Don’t think it can’t happen here, it can and it will and this is TPTB number one goal. This goal can only be stymied by the sheeple waking up on an intense and massive scale (but they won’t), or breaking apart the country to preserve our liberties and way of life in the new freedom-loving parts.
      I don’t have a care where one comes from or what they look like; the important thing is they share with us a common practice and belief in our borders, language (English), and culture that unite us.
      TPTB want dramatic population reduction; a dumbed-down world living an 18th century existence. The more the nations of the world fragment and societies demand their rights and dignity the more difficult it will be for TPTB to attain their goals.
