    It Won’t Be An Accident: The Build Up to World War III

    In Economic Apocalypse Goes Mainstream we opined that the financial, economic and political collapses occuring around the globe will eventually lead the industrialized nations of the world to war. The signs should already be apparent, especially in areas like the middle east, where the U.S. is vying for resource domination, monetary superiority and political control. As economies around the world implode, and citizens become more frustrated with their governments, things can quickly begin to spiral out of control domestically – regardless of whether you’re in the United States, China, Russia or Europe. As a result, politicians will do what they’ve done historically in such instances, which is to deflect responsibility (either out of fear or by design) from themselves onto others. Usually, this means leaders and citizens oceans away will get blamed for the malaise.

    Aaron Hawkins of Storm Clouds Gathering provides some key insights into the many variables that will ultimately lead the world into perhaps the greatest war in history.

    When playing chess the outcome of the game is usually determined in the early stages by the positions that are built up by each player even before the first pawn falls. These moves may seem innocuous to the untrained eye, but an experienced player can read the threats which grow and develop at each stage. They can see the traps which are being laid.

    Right now, the nations of the world are organizing and positioning themselves – financially, diplomatically, and militarily – for a struggle which will alter the global power structure irrevocably.

    It would be impossible to understand the economic collapse which is slowly unfolding, and the great war which wall almost certainly follow, without taking into account the stakes of this global chess game.

    World War III is not going to be an accident. It will not be caused by an unfortunate chain events that the U.S. struggles to avoid. It is a goal, a specific objective that must be reached in order to force a cultural shift that the population would otherwise never accept. It is only from this context that the events unfolding in the world right now make any sense.

    While we can’t predict exactly how or when such a war will take shape, it should be clear that game play on the grand chessboard is in full swing. The key players – which include national leaders and elite power brokers behind the scenes – are actively positioning their pieces, just as they did for the two decades preceding World War I and World War II.

    Surviving economic collapse and political instability may be the least of our problems.

          And… “The Project for a New American Century”.

          Friends, it doesn’t matter if it is a dumbocrat or repukocrat in power. They just follow the script laid out for them. Hell, the PATRIOT Act was written long before 911 and the largest security apparatus known to mankind … they just needed a CATALYST.

          Everything you see today is Problem, Reaction, Solution.

          Whether large or small … everything the government bestows upon us is done through a catalyst in one form or another. And I can assure you that TP’sTB believe that a massive catalyst will be beneficial to them. They have the advantage in that they are True Believers. Most of you don’t know what you believe in, but my gosh … you believe in … nothing, and everything. TP’sTB are focused. Most of you are but a shattered mirror stepping all over each other … and THAT is their advantage.

          And when the big gig happens, they’ll convince most of you to go patriotic and wave your flags, just like…

          It’s the same in any country folks. ;-)

          Your “government” has studied every know security and propaganda apparatus in the world … and your “government is very … very … very good at it.

          • Very perceptive Curtis.

            That is the basic problem: focus. TPTB have it, the general public does not. This is the reason for all the diversions: TV, Entertainment, Political Theater. Its a type of divide and conquer where they never give the general public a chance to form any type of cohesive movement. Keep ‘em all fighting about left/right, prodeath/prolife, RepubliCON/DemocRAT, Hawks/Doves, American Idle, Video Games, and on and on and on and on. Anything but about the real issues of freedom and The Republic.

            The general public knows it should be more cohesive but it keeps getting fed all these diverse stimuli. Consequently when something rises above the fray, the 9/11, they jump on it and support it even to their detriment (like the (un)Patriot(ic) Act).

            I know this because I fell victim to it. Now, I focus on what the beast really is: A corporate creation of the elites first put in motion by the US Civil War (which wasn’t really a civil war because it was a war between two DIFFERENT countries, but thats another story) and then focused into The Act of 1871.

            I believe the US Civil War was the first “False Flag” of sorts. A war, by design, with internal, misdirected information. I know this, because, 150 years later it is still confusing people. A war about financial gain and financial slavery. Certainly it was about slavery just not the kind in the high school textbooks’ rhetoric. In reality the slavery they promoted (not fought against) was the kind where we seem to un-slave the black race while we tax slave the entire nation. It was about equal opportunity enslavement. 150 years later less than 2% understand the US Civil War. 99% still say it was about the slavery of the black man. (…a political device used near the end of the war when people started to understand what it was all about…)

            While the populous was healing from the confusion and injury of the USCW they didn’t even notice that the government had been abandoned and replaced with a corporation with all the offices of the same name. The biggest ruse in history. Maybe not, but certainly in the top 10. While the government was barred from stealing from you by law (your liberty or your money) the corporation (I call it FedCo) could, at will. Not quite “at will” since FedCo needed to continue to appear to the public like our Constitutional Government to stop an uprising. (…cohesivity!)

            Fast forward a few generations and FedCo is getting bolder and bolder because people are so fully distracted by so much and varied stimuli that a cohesive understanding of what FedCo is has become nearly impossible. …and also because Americans have forgotten what true freedom is.

            Lets all get a clue and make stabbing the beast a priority. God Bless America and all that she stands for. (…or used to, anyways.)

            Another nice job, Mac. Concise and to the point. We sure do appreciate all the work you do for us! …for America. You and every other competent journalist should be in our prayers. Good luck and thank you.

      I have to agree that this is a true reason for this then. I do believe that we want some sort of global dominance and if we are loosing it then we have to act for whatever reasons these leaders are doing. I never thought of it that way only on spreading freedom but we are greedy and it all makes sense why and the hell would we stay in afghanistan that long. Makes no sense. but it really does. sad to say whatever happens im ready for all this to get on with it. we can take care of ourselves, a lot of people wont be able to. thats what makes this exciting times.

        Hi Ivo
        I’m black and a Christian. I believe in being prepared. My family is mixed and I live in rual northeastern Maine. Not many blacks here at all. We have almost nine months of winter, so unless you are raised here or love the area, you do not want to be here in the winter. Most of my Christian friends have the fairly tale belief that they are going to fly out of here before things get bad. And my non Christian friends just can’t seem to get their minds rapped around the idea that things could go so wrong that they’d have to take care of themselves. They think someone will always be there to save them. They just stare at me when I talk to them about prepping. I think deep down inside, it scares the sxxt out of them to think of a collaspe of the system. One of my daughters who was raised in Maine and now lives in NY keeps a bug out bag packed to grab and come home after experiencing 911. I ask her to contribute to the preparing I’m doing, she won’t. My other children just depend on Mom and family in Maine. I have faith in God, however my bible shows me that God warned people and told them to prepare many times.Of course our ultimate survival depends on the God. According to the word good wins over evil. But there are some bad times before the final showdown. So to speak. I did not be to belittle anyone’s belief in the rapture. It’s up to all of us to choose what we believe. May god help us all. Lynda

        Stay prayed up and keep prepping.

          I’m a Christian. I’ve told church people about hyperinflation. They seem to believe it’s coming but they don’t see the need to prepare. Some people see preparing as a lack of faith in God. I see it as taking common sense precautions. There are other church people who think I’m crazy. I did what I can. I believe that the chaos will lead to the one-world government prophesied in Revelation. We have a year’s supply of food and water. We have guns and ammo. Kerosene heater and kerosene. Camp stove and coleman fuel. I didn’t start prepping until June. I saw Porter Stansberry’s End of America video. That woke me up. I could be wrong but I get the sense that the collapse is coming soon. I think it will happen this winter if not sooner.

            If you prep out of fear, then it is indeed, a lack of faith. I don’t blame Christians for not prepping in a food/water sense at all. The Bible makes it clear that you have nothing to fear if you put your faith in God. If you feel that you are lead to prep, than by all means.

            How can a Christian argue with this?
            Matthew 6:25
            25 “Therefore I say to you, ydo not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? 26 zLook at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 Which of you by worrying can add one 1cubit to his 2stature?
            28 “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; 29 and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not 3arrayed like one of these. 30 Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?
            31 “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33 But aseek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.

            Farm Cat – Your Christian friends who choose not to prepare are missing an essential point. God takes care of people by giving them the realization they need to brace for the coming storm. It’s not about floating up to heaven, it’s about stocking up on food and necessary supplies and getting prepared both physically and mentally. God no longer sends messages on stone tablets from the mountaintop. The messages are delivered by members of this forum and countless other sources where good people are trying to sound the alarm. Please listen to WestVAFolks.

          Lynda,
          I used to wonder if I was showing faith with my prepping, until I noticed that three times in Proverbs a scripture is repeated (with some variation) that says: “The wise man sees danger and prepares (or hides himself), while the simple keep going and suffer for it.”

          Maybe in the past the war mongers could profit. In a third world war scenario it is likely to quickly go nuclear. Modeling of even a small nuclear exchange – say between India and Pakistan, shows that it will impact globally through tons of soot being sucked up into the atmosphere (nuclear winter, collapse of food production, mass starvation, etc).

          http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=local-nuclear-war

          If there is greater exchange then all bets are off for the survival of mankind – does not now much sodding ‘stuff’ you have stashed away as you would have to live underground for well over a year and when you emerge there will be little. Wealth in this scenario is meaningless as there would be nothing of meaning left.

          The other factor that is not normally built in is that there are over 400 nuclear installations over the world with used nuclear fuel containment ponds that rely on continuous power supply to cool the spent fuel. If a major war occurs then the grid systems will collapse and many of these installations will go critical very quick and flood the atmosphere with radiation – Fukushima x100, x200….take your pick.

I have seen the destructive power of a nuclear bomb. We have all seen it. That is what would scare me the most. An armed Iran or Syria. They could do a lot of damage with a couple of tactical nuke strikes to this country. 4 or 5 well placed detonations to cities in this country and we would be dealt a real blow.

      I don’t doubt the “idea” of an EMP bomb. I just have not seen it. Has anyone seen the devastaion of an EMP bomb? Any test videos out there? It’s all theory is it not? If we (the U.S.) have this technology, why haven’t we used it?

        GC,
        First test by the United States was on July 16, 1945.

        In July 1962, a 1.44 megaton (6.0 PJ) United States nuclear test in space, 400 kilometers (250 mi) above the mid-Pacific Ocean, called the Starfish Prime test, demonstrated to nuclear scientists that the magnitude and effects of a high altitude nuclear explosion were much larger than had been previously calculated. Starfish Prime also made those effects known to the public by causing electrical damage in Hawaii, about 1,445 kilometers (898 mi) away from the detonation point, knocking out about 300 streetlights, setting off numerous burglar alarms and damaging a telephone company microwave link.

        BTW there’s more/Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electromagnetic_pulse

        Not to mention Iran’s long range missiles and nuclear aspirations have been all over the news. All it will take is a cargo carrier near our shores to launch one of the babies. Some experts believe as few as three would wipe out our entire national grid. (East Coast, West Coast, and Gulf of Mexico) I’ve heard other’s claim one long range missile with a nuke, over Wichita, KS would do the trick.

        What I can say without violating my non disclosure agreement is: google starfish prime and emp effects.
        A nuke in the ground or airburst has a very short range emp effect actually less than the primary effects. Take that same bomb and put it about 140 miles in the upper atmosphere and the released radiation causes a vortex effect on the ionosphere creating a magnetic pulse wave that spirals to earth causing a magnetic field that generates electrical current in any conductive material in the range of 50000 to 100000 volts.
        Microchips and electronics are designed to operate on mili volts to a maximum of 5 volts will burn out rendering it junk. Everything now has control systems that run on microchips. Cars, banking, medicine, manufacturing, large scale electricity generation, oil processing, food harvesting, etc will be shut down. Back to writing letters and talking to each other. Life revolves around technology now and people depend on it for everything, water, food, electricity, cars, jobs, money, heat, cooking, light and medicines, everything will be gone.
        Just do some research there is lots out there to check on the effects and causes of emp if you have a computer and internet. A coronal mass ejection can do the same thing if it hits the earth, one happened in the 1880′s and melted telegraph lines of 12 gauge wire so a microchip is toast. I’m doing this on a phone since my hardrive burned out 2 months ago, so its from memory the ultimate computer.

        • There are a lot of people fearmongering EMPs. The fact is most people don’t understand transients and EMPs. The unfortunate fact is that I do. …and because I do, most of the “information” on the internet is purely and simply bullshit designed to keep people reading.

          A properly placed nuke designed to maximize its EMPness would do a couple things that would be devastating:

          1) Know out the power grid. It might only knock out 10% of the grid but thats bad enough. It would take us years to recover. …and the really be distribution lines? Yeah, they’be be toast. Most of the equipment is protected, but, and EMP would be far more powerful and far reaching than a few lightning strikes and there for far more damaging. Figure this: a nuke with high EMPness and the power grid is toast.

          2) Any type of RF transmission equipment that either has long wires attached to it (Telephone cabling?) or a sizeable antenna array will be toast. Below ground will help but not much. Essentially, all the radio transmitters, DSL DSLAMs, etc will be toast.

          If the nuke is close enough to fry your ECM of your vehicle, you’ll be far more worried about the blast and radiation than you will about the EMP. Hello? Its encased in aluminum, the wires aren’t that long *AND* there is this thing call a “body” that your car as. its steel and all connected together? Its a pretty good RF shield and therefore a pretty good EMP shield.

          Much like lightning causes electrons to migrate, so will an EMP only to a magnitude of 10 or maybe even 100. But, regardless, most things that don’t provide a conduit for the electrons to flow from one place to another will be spared.

          I could go into great detail about how all this works, but, suffice it to say that if you have your system unplugged it will definately be OK. Same with everything else.

          But, the big problem will be getting the electricity to run stuff. Any EMP damage will take years to repair. Better have a generator and a bunch of gas, know how to use it and know how to conserve fuel.

          Don’t believe much you hear about EMPs. Its mainly fearmongering.

        GC: While EMP is one of the results of a high-order nuclear detonation, it is also an effect of plasma storms on the sun. I do not recall the year, a little Googling should do the trick, in the 1800s we experienced just that, in a world where power lines were used for little more than telegraphs. The result was fires in the telegraph offices.

        Imagine the effect of EMP in a world where your body is just about the only thing that isn’t connected to the grid.

        Immediate: semi-permanent/permanent loss of electricity, all non-shilded electronics permanently cease to function (automobiles,aircraft,communications,medical equipment, etc), and more…

        Short term: death of all of those who are dependent on medical equipment for their lives, confusion for those who do not recognize the effects of an EMP.

        Longer-term: riots (no police – no communications and no autmobiles), death (no EMS, no running water, no sewage pumps, etc.), raging fires (no Firefighters, no running water), etc…
        You get the picture.

        According to NASA, this is comming again (2013-2014) – Google can help here to I think.

        As far as an EMP from a nuclear weapon, yes, it is real, yes is is EXTREMELY destructive, however, there are problems with this situation:

        First, the weapon must be strong enoguh (not that difficult to obtain).

        Second, it has to be deliverable (realistically, there are very few nations capable of delivering a nuclear weapon to the edges of space – this is where it would have to be for the EMP effect to cover a large-enough area to cause the desired effect.

        Third, if a weapon detonated that high in the atomosphere, we will see none of the “nuclear” effects down here aside from the EMP – a little research on nuclear-theory physics and high-altitude winds will help you understand.

        Furthermore, in reality, the only reason for the use of such a weapon to produce an EMP is to disrupt and confuse prior to putting boots on the ground. If there is an EMP “attack”, and there are not foreign boots on the ground within a 72hrs, it was a false-flag event – this is the most likely scenario (due to the difficulties in delivering a weapon to the required altitude, constructing such a weapon and getting it past our security, and, of course, the obvious reponse from the US if attacked with a nuclear weapon is a nuclear strike – very few are that stupid). <- on that note, anyone ever wonder if 9/11 were not a false-flag event, why our response was so limited? Prior to 9/11 the last time our country was attacked from the outside, causing that much death and damage, was 7 Dec. 1941 – as a result, we invented the most devastating weapon man has ever concieved of and we used it..twice!

      ww3 (if can call it that) will be fought at sea. due to the treaty with russia there will be no nukes in this but there will be bio and chem weapons. any nukes will be set off in middle eastern or south american 3rd world countries and NO ONE will claim them. for if we actually nuke someone it will be seen as an open invite to nuke the fatherland, excuse me…homeland.

      the next war weill be mainly on 3 fronts. the cyber front, the sea and space. they will try to shoot down orbiting sats.

      china and russia are making subs like no tomorrow. the next war will be heavy for the navy.

For instance, if that Naval superiority of ours was lost through attrition … we will use that damn bomb. If we start taking MASSIVE casualties on the battle field … we’ll use that damn bomb…

        The success of the Black Hand Lodge conspirators may have been partially due to the royal motorcade’s stall, but the conspirators were ready in place, no accident of fate.

        There is some very interesting background (hopefully interesting to you, Old Coach, since you already know some details) to the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand having to do with the conclave following the death of Pope Leo XIII in 1903.

        Here is the short (well, maybe not that short) version. A Freemasonic infiltrator, Cardinal Secretary of State Rampolla (then second in power only to the Pope), was elected on the first ballot. The Cardinal Patriarch of Krakow Poland, Cardinal Jan Puzyna de Kosielko, arose to nullify the election of Rampolla on behalf of the Austro-Hungarian Hapsburg Emperor Franz Josef, legitimate successor to the Holy Roman Emperor. That privilege of the Holy Roman Emperor was nearly forgotten because it had been unused for nearly 500 years. The Cardinal Patriarch provided the astonished conclave with a dossier compiled by Msgr. Jouin, a famous Vatican archivist. The dossier proved that Rampolla was a Freemason, a sworn enemy covertly, but actively, engaged in the destruction of the Church.

        About 10 years later, to ensure that there would never again be a Holy Roman Emperor to invoke privilege against them, to ensure they would never have such secular opposition in attempting to overthrow the Church, the Freemasons assassinated Crown Prince Archduke Ferdinand, thereby igniting World War I against the last Catholic Empire.

        Received history readily reveals the main assassin, Gavril Princeps, and his Freemasonic “Black Hand” Lodge co-conspirators as “anarchists,” but establishment history is not so forthcoming that 4 of 6 of the assassins were “Chosen People.” (Establishment history is notoriously deficient in also failing to teach that the World Jewish Congress declared war on Germany in 1934.) On the death of Emperor Franz Josef in 1916, the saintly Karl was raised to the two Austro-Hungarian thrones. A holy and charitable man, Emperor Karl immediately sued for peace, but the Freemasonic Prime Ministers of Britain and France repeatedly rejected his surrender. They stated that winning the war was not their main objective, but the destruction of the last Catholic Empire. From the time of his first offer of peace in 1916 until war’s end in 1919, _11 MILLION_ more men were unnecessarily killed or wounded in the Freemasons’ “Great War,” their horrific blood sacrifice to Moloch of the world’s youth to obtain the destruction of the last Catholic empire.

        What followed WW 1? Perpetual war, genocide, and other crimes against humanity such as was never seen in Christendom.

        As the name implies, the whole world was affected by World War 1. For Catholics, there are other important points of that history.

        In 1903, by the grace of God, instead of Rampolla, Cdl. Giuseppe Sarto/Pope St. Pius X ascended to the Chair of Peter and the faithful Cardinal Merry del Val became Cardinal Secretary of State. Tragically, Rampolla’s influence continued through much of the 20th century due to the influence of Rampolla’s protégés, Della Chiesa (Benedict XV), Pacelli (Pius XII), Roncalli (John XXIII), Montini (Paul VI), and Pietro Gasparri (Cardinal Secretary of State 1914-1930). The banking families of Pacelli and Montini were also connected to the Rothschilds. Instead of the usual school and seminary training, from childhood both Pacelli and Montini were tutored under the personal direction of Rampolla. They were so tutored until their last two years before ordination. Rampolla’s work culminated in his protégés’ considerable destruction of the Church wrought at the Second Vatican Council.

          Do some research on the matter, there is a good expose about all this written by one of the first people to make most details of nuclear weaponry public. The vast majority of nuclear weaponry on Earth is the “dirty” kind that kills the majority of its victims through radiation.

      IMO – we are almost toast. There are very few countries which would even consider attacking us directly; conventional or nuke.. the reprisal would be unimaginable. A single nuke, disguised as a satellite would send us instantly back into the dark ages.. and us with 350 million + mouths to feed. China did not start trade with us for our money; they are over a 5000 year old culture and patience is their mark. They started trade with us to get our technology and we have willingly, eagerly given it to them. We have built their factories and trained their people. Their real technological level is at least comparible with our own now. We have seen to that. They did not want our money, but while it has value they have and will use it to acquire physical assets around the globe. The transfer of power is almost complete. Technology, in this world, is power. It would be very unlikely that they would ever attack us; there are too many other insane countries more than willing to do so.. all they need is the means. China does not need us any longer as a trading partner; they have over 1 billion potential customers within their own borders and several billion more in India and the rest of the world. There will come a point in time, soon I think, when they will have achieved enough of their goals that we are dispensible. One big EMP burst from above and we are off the world stage for decades; if not permanently. There would be no retalliation feared because either we would not know who did it or it would be done by proxy. China would not care.. they have want they sought from us and they will win the war without even fighting it.

        The following is a transcript of a speech believed to have been given by Mr. Chi Haotian, Minster of Defense and vice-chairman of China’s Central Military Commission.
        The speech argues for the necessity of China using biological warfare to depopulate the United States and prepare it for a future massive Chinese colonization. “The War Is Not Far from Us and Is the Midwife of the Chinese Century” was published on February 15, 2005
        Only countries like the United States, Canada and Australia have the vast land to serve our need for mass colonization. Only by using special means to “clean up” America will we be able to lead the Chinese people there.
        Therefore, we will not hesitate to fight a Third World War, so as to lead the people to go out and to ensure the Party’s leadership position. In any event, we, the CCP, will never step down from the stage of history! We’d rather have the whole world, or even the entire globe, share life and death with us than step down from the stage of history!!! Isn’t there a ‘nuclear bondage’ theory? It means that since nuclear weapons have bound the security of the entire world, all will die together if death is inevitable. In my view, there is another kind of bondage, and that is, the fate our Party is tied up with that of the whole world. If we, the CCP, are finished, China will be finished, and the world will be finished.

        Only by using non-destructive weapons that can kill many people will we be able to reserve America for ourselves. There has been rapid development of modern biological technology, and new bio weapons have been invented one after another.

        You’d think that people who are prepping for the worst wouldn’t believe everything they are told to believe, wouldn’t believe the conspiracies advanced by those who have repeatedly lied to us, but would instead look deeper and carefully connect the dots.

        Sad to say, these times remind me of Isaias 5:20-21:

        It is no accident that Judaism disparages and nullifies the Word of God, the Written Torah (what we call the Old Testament) in favor of the word of the rabbis’ Oral Torah (Talmud and Kabbala). These stiff-necked people just don’t want to hear God’s judgment on their behavior.

        In Deuteronomy 28 http://www.drbo.org/chapter/05028.htm and Leviticus 26 http://www.drbo.org/chapter/03026.htm God specified the contract of the Mosaic Covenant. He specified the duties of the Israelites to obey Him, the rewards if they obeyed Him, and the penalties if they disobeyed Him. See also: Leviticus 18:28; Numbers 14:23; Deuteronomy 4:26-27; 6:18; 7:12; Deuteronomy 30; Ezekiel 13:9; Jeremias 7:15; 29:13-14.

        God did not promise to reward disobedience with power, admiration, or a real estate deal in the Middle East; He promised dispersal and misery, even to vomit them out.

        Keep ye my ordinances and my judgments, and do not any of these abominations: neither any of your own nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you. For all these detestable things the inhabitants of the land have done, that; were before you, and have defiled it. Beware then, lest in like manner, it vomit you also out, if you do the like things, as it vomited out the nation that was before you. Every soul that shall commit any of these abominations, shall perish from the midst of his people. Keep my commandments. Do not the things which they have done, that have been before you, and be not defiled therein. I am the Lord your God. Leviticus 18:26-30

          I’m starting to think this site is full of religious fanatics. Hmm, where else have I heard religious fanatics in recent years… hmmm..

          I’ve been reading this site for a long time and just recently started posting. I am a prepper, but I, myself an not religious. I’m not anti-religion, I’d say I’m more agnostic. My stance is good for you if you are religious, and what I love about this country is that you can practice just about anything you want. I don’t bash other’s views, so long as they aren’t hurting anyone or repressing anyone else. My aggravation comes when people start trying to convert me and telling me I’m going to burn f I don’t believe the way they do. Do you realize how that makes you sound?

          My point for posting this is that if your SHTF Plan is to turn to your God, then great, but lately this site seems to have gone from great advice or interesting debate to this “Don’t worry God will save us” plan. To each their own, but when civil unrest occurs outside your door, and it’s time to defend your family, you can go pray all you want. I just pray I don’t miss.

        Fear mongering? Only a fool would hazard an “exact” date and time guess. The truth is Charley that no one really knows what will really cause the SHTF. Each of these “fear mongering” theories gives insight into a potential outcome. Since everyone may have a separate theory as to what, where, when and how things will go down, it gives the individual (well at least this individual) pause to consider a different opinion, and decide if it should be included in their prepping plans! This site and others like it are integral to prepping. Oh yeah, I found that since I started prepping all those years ago, I sleep like a baby! Clay

      “Louis was a king, and our republic is established; the critical question concerning you must be decided by these words alone. Louis was dethroned by his crimes; Louis denounced the French people as rebels; he appealed to chains, to the armies of tyrants who are his brothers; the victory of the people established that Louis alone was a rebel; Louis cannot therefore be judged; he already is judged. He is condemned, or the republic cannot be absolved. To propose to have a trial of Louis XVI, in whatever manner one may, is to retrogress to royal despotism and constitutionality; it is a counter-revolutionary idea because it places the revolution itself in litigation. In effect, if Louis may still be given a trial, he may be absolved, and innocent. What am I to say? He is presumed to be so until he is judged. But if Louis is absolved, if he may be presumed innocent, what becomes of the revolution? If Louis is innocent, all the defenders of liberty become slanderers. Our enemies have been friends of the people and of truth and defenders of innocence oppressed; all the declarations of foreign courts are nothing more than the legitimate claims against an illegal faction. Even the detention that Louis has endured is, then, an unjust vexation; the fédérés, the people of Paris, all the patriots of the French Empire are guilty; and this great trial in the court of nature judging between crime and virtue, liberty and tyranny, is at last decided in favor of crime and tyranny. Citizens, take warning; you are being fooled by false notions; you confuse positive, civil rights with the principles of the rights of mankind; you confuse the relationships of citizens amongst themselves with the connections between nations and an enemy that conspires against it; you confuse the situation of a people in revolution with that of a people whose government is affirmed; you confuse a nation which punishes a public functionary to conserve its form of government, and one which destroys the government itself. We are falling back upon ideas familiar to us, in an extraordinary case that depends upon principles we’ve never yet applied.”— Maximilien Robespierre, 1792[

      I just think it’s funny that the West hasn’t yet won the two insurgent wars in Iraq and Afghanistan after 10 years. If they had won, they’d have packed up and gone home right? Answer is: They don’t want to win. It’s better to hold on to the important ground and spend time building up millions of tons of equipment in these two areas. Call it “prepositioning” your assets for the ultimate BIG step.

      Best way to get rid of your debts? Go to war against your debtors and kick their ass. If you win, you don’t have to pay them back, because they started it. Make sense now?

      The coming war will be an act of domination, not of those who should be our enemies, but of the people, themselves. Out of fear of our enemies, the people will be brought into line. They will be fearing the wrong enemies.

      The “Big Brother” we’ve been experiencing lately is nothing compared to what is coming. Things will be done “for our safety” that completely erode our freedom and our way of life.

      Neighbour will be encouraged to turn against neighbour (see something, say something). Rebellion will be quashed quickly and painfully, without regard for due process (The unPatriot Act). The PTB, the Elite, will act and try to turn us all into slaves.

      If people aren’t careful, it will be too late. By the time they wake up, they will dicsover that the Fema camps that they have been evacuated to for their own safety are just a modern version of concentration camps.

        Good luck, I’ve been trying for years. The last time the family got together I had all my financial facts ready. I actually sat down at the table with a Tin Foil hat on. Everyone had a good laugh.

        Now 75 days later I get calls from my mother and brother asking what they need to do to get started. Unfortunately without throwing $25k at their problem now, I don’t think they are going to make it.

        Though they can spend the money for the supplies, tools and weapons, they have absolutely no skills. Not even fire starting with matches and they live 600 miles away. They may have time to get the most basic weapons skills, but that’s about it.

        It’s my hope post collapse, that I can get them to move within 24 hours. If I can get them here during the early stages and they have the stuff I’ve told them to buy, they wil have a chance. I’ll just have to train them up when they arrive.

        After the events in Europe over the weekend it looks like Germany and France are getting ready to run the presses at full speed. With most sovereign countries printing money it could be a protracted collapse.

        Now that it’s Monday in Japan it looks like the Nikkei is liking the new global QE that’s about to begin.

          There is a brother in law in my family like those you describe in yours. He started prepping in May after I got him to reach one second after and later he read patriots. He’s spending $500/1000 a month now on preparing and bought his first gun (10/22) in August. He doesn’t know it but I picked up a used SKS just with him in mind to loan him; his property is a good intermediate Bug Out spot for me on the way to my own. But before he started prepping it would have been to risky to stop at his place but now I’d gladly take him. In 4 short months he’s solved all water issues, seed, and has started his firearms training. This month he’s getting an RIA 45 and I’ll loan him a 22 kit for it so he can get some decent training in. I’m amazed how far he’s gotten in 4 months on less than 1k a month. Oh and he’s got 6 in his family to worry about including himself.

          As a newcomer, I risk of coming off like an internet troll, I’ll post a second time on this in an effort to provide some education, and I’ll shut up after this. Hopefully somebody else can learn and continue to educate.

          I cringe at how many still believe the first paragraph above. I imagine that a mass majority of us here disbelieve damn near everything that our government tells us, certainly this reader (now poster) does, and yet we fail to question 50+ years of propaganda and lies about communism?

          I posted similar in another thread earlier tonight, but the very idea of a country, negates the ideals of communism. What most Americans believe of communism is actually *socialism* with the prominent political party being the Communist party, who’s ultimate goal is *supposedly* communism. Take a read of the English translation of “The Communist Manifesto” sometime. You’ll learn that first capitalism, and then socialism are regarded as necessary evils of government before communism can be _achieved_.

          Obviously, that goal was lost somewhere along the way…probably about 4 years in for the former Soviet Union. First they skipped a step and then they barely began to scratch the surface of socialism before Stalin came along and really f’d things up for those people.

          I envision the ultimate freedom of the human race actually being something very similar to Engles and Marx’s ideals (there are certain obvious flaws in those ideals — for instance the concept of any type of ownership, including the idea of a “state” or “state ownership”), but I don’t expect our species to grow up until long after my grandchildren’s grandchildren’s deaths.

          Anyway, my point is that communism has never been attempted, much less outright rejected. I hope that explanation helps educate rather than anger anyone.

          BTW, your review of China as a fascist state is spot on IMO.

          I thank everyone for their posts, now back to my corner to lurk in silence.

      it seems to me that somone is always claiming the end of days is near. the bible said so, there for it must be true.

      I heard this claim ever since I was a small child and doing “duck and cover” under my school desk just incase the USSR nuked us.

      heard that claim all throughy-out the 80′s. Heard all through-out the 90′s for 1999 was supposed to have been the end of the world/end of time. Heard the claim all through-out 2000-10 for a terrorist was supposed to wipe us out.

      every single claim is in reaction to a man made crises. not a natural disaster. it’s a flase claim made out of fear.

      fear is a huge motivator. it can drive people to do the strangest things.

      the world is not going to end cause the bible tells us so. the world will simply change. the reason for prepping is to provide you with supplies and defense to get you through a turbulant period of time.

        Rachel: Eventually they will be right. It is moving in that direction. The Bible doesn’t tell us that the world is going to end.

        On the contrary it tells US that the world will last for a very, very, very long time. So long in fact it will seem like forever.

        Read the Bible.

        The Bible claims to be the revealed Word of God which describes His Creation and His Plan for it.

        Personally, I believe that everything that happens in this world happens for three reasons:

        1. It happens by the Will of God according to his Plan.
        2. It happens by Grace, in answer to our prayers.
        3. And it happens by His Forebearance,as He allows US to exercise OUR free will; as agents of change and co-creaters with him.

        So We can change the world with OUR prayers and with OUR actions.

        Most events appear to be the reaction to OUR actions as cause and effect are manifested in the world, based upon OUR initiatives.

        This manifestation reflects OUR individual and mass consciousness, as OUR minds interact at the quantum level. Everyone has a “quantum address” just as WE have an “IP adress”.

        WE have the power to change the world We live in (within limits) if We will accept that responsibility. Most of US will not because it takes too much effort, and WE are too busy keeping up with the Kardasians to care or notice.

    45. We face a colossal, human-induced global predicament. Emerging and converging ecological challenges we have chosen to ignore rather than acknowledge during my lifetime is in large part the result of the way silence is employed by ‘the powers that be’ and their minions to prevail over science. Hysterical blindness, willful deafness and elective mutism of knowledgeable human beings with feet of clay rule the world every bit as much as malignant narcissism, pathological arrogance and extreme foolishness of greedmongering masters of the universe rule the world. This pernicious situation is as intolerable as it is dangerous to future human well being and environmental health.
