    Putin Targets US Monetary System: “Aims to Eliminate the US Dollar and the Euro From Trade”

    Putin-Target-Americas-Achilles-Heel

    Last year Russia began unloading massive amounts of their US dollar reserves. In the month of December 2014 alone Putin sold some 20% of the country’s U.S. Treasurys, a move that further increased tensions surrounding what can only be described as economic warfare between East and West.

    Then, as if part of a coordinated effort, this summer it was revealed that China had implemented a similar strategy, dumping half a trillion in dollar denominated assets.

    But that’s just the beginning of the end for the US dollar. Amid a major meltdown in Chinese stock markets the People’s Republic sold off billions in dollar assets last week in what was reported to be an effort to stabilize their collapsing financial markets.

    And now, as Russia’s economy collapses under the weight of American and European sanctions, including what many believe to be widespread downward manipulation of oil prices, Vladimir Putin is sending a clear signal to the central bank of the world’s reserve currency.

    A new bill drafted by the President of the Russian Federation aims to completely eliminate the US dollar from the trade of goods:

    Russian President Vladimir Putin has drafted a bill that aims to eliminate the US dollar and the euro from trade between CIS countries.

    This means the creation of a single financial market between Russia, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and other countries of the former Soviet Union.

    “This would help expand the use of national currencies in foreign trade payments and financial services and thus create preconditions for greater liquidity of domestic currency markets”, said a statement from Kremlin.

    The bill would also help to facilitate trade in the region and help to achieve macro-economic stability.

    Source: RT

    The implications for such a move, though not necessarily immediate, are serious over the long-term. That China and Russia are now overtly divesting themselves of U.S. dollar assets signals a significant paradigm shift in global trade.

    The dollar may be strong today as panicked global investors rush to the perceived safety of the US Treasury assets. But as the Federal Reserve is left with no choice but to print trillions more to keep financial markets from ruin, the creditors who usually buy those assets are drying up.

    There will come a breaking point in the near future, and when that day comes we will see the largest monetary collapse in the history of the world.

    When the collapse of the dollar occurs, it will literally and figuratively come like a thief in the night, and I do mean overnight!

    We are all familiar with the concept of inflation, which is the intentional byproduct of the Federal Reserve.  But I am not just talking inflation, I’m speaking about hyperinflation which is caused by the collapse of the value of the currency resulting in runaway prices. Here are three examples of how quickly a currency collapse can occur when a nation’s money when its money no longer holds it value:

    1. In Weimar Germany, from 1922 – 1923, prices  doubled  every three days.

    2. In the modern era, in Yugoslavia from 1992-94, witnessed prices doubling every 34 hours.

    3. In Zimbabwe, in the two year period from 2007 – 2008, prices doubled  every 25 hours.

    History is replete with examples of currency collapses and they typically follow very predictable patterns in which a nation unravels and social chaos, and many times, widespread violence and even genocide becomes part of the national landscape.

    Source: What will happen when the dollar collapses?

    And though such things could never happen in the “developed” world, we urge our readers to consider the reality of a scenario that involves a break down of the US dollar. We direct your attention to Venezuela, where we can see what a total system collapse looks like in real-time:

    With 30% of Venzuelans eating two or fewer meals per day, social unrest is mounting rapidly in President Nicolas Maduro’s socialist utopia. As WSJ reports,soldiers have now been deployed to stem rampant food smuggling and price speculation, which Maduro blames for triple-digit inflation and scarcity. “Due to the shortage of food… the desperation is enormous,” local opposition politician Andres Camejo said, and nowhere is that more evident than the trampling death of an 80-year-old woman outside a state-subsidized supermarket.

    In such a scenario we can fully expect that our regular systems of commerce will break down to the point that essential goods like food, gas and other critical supplies become unattainable to the masses at almost any price.

    Tess Pennington, author of The Prepper’s Blueprint, explains what happens within three to five days of the reality of the monetary disaster setting in:

    Have you ever heard the saying, “We’re three days away from anarchy?” In the wake of a disaster, that’s all you have is three days to turn the crazy train around before crime, looting and chaos ensue. In reports during the aftermath of hurricane Sandy, residents from Staten Island were pleading for help from elected officials, begging for gasoline, food and clothing.

    Multiple factors contribute to societal breakdowns including failure of adequate government response, population density, citizens taking advantage of the grid being down and overwhelmed emergency response teams.

    The 3-5 days following a disaster is the bewitching hour. During this short amount of time, the population slowly becomes a powder keg full of angry, desperate citizens. A good example is the chaos that ensued in New Orleans following the absence of action from the local government or a timely effective federal response in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. In such troubled times, people were forced to fend for themselves and their families, by any means necessary. This timeline of Hurricane Katrina effectively illustrates “the breakdown,” and within three days, the citizens of New Orleans descended into anarchy, looting and murder .

    Source: Anatomy of a Breakdown

    It’s difficult to imagine a sustained breakdown across America. But make no mistake, should the US dollar every come under attack, and it appears that the opening salvos have already been fired by Russia and China, then life as we have come to know it in America will come to a drastic and near immediate halt.

      Queue DK, with his official BS. :)

      Remember, none of those other countries had nukes… We have them, and have USED them.

      Lord help us all.

      • durangokidd says:

        “Official BS” ??? No, nothing official about my perspective. Its based upon basic, rational economics with an interpretation backed by formal education, industry experience, and special expertise. Not too many here can claim that, and their observations in this area confirm my statement.

        Most of the Alt Media Sheeple here follow and parrot the latest Alt Media Meme of the moment without applying just a little bit of common sense to the meme. To wit, their belief that the PTB will destroy their currency (in which they hold their wealth and power) through HYPERINFLATION and destroy their wealth and power.

        Even an Alt Media retard should recognize that the PTB will allow the masses to starve before they relinquish the source of their wealth and power: the DOLLAR. That’s just common sense.

        Its survival of the financial fittest and the poor and uneducated have evidenced their lack of worth by being poor and uneducated; unable to compete on the economic playing field (even if it is tilted). That is the perspective of the NWO PTB; not mine.

        But hey!!! For just $48 I will send you my latest CD that tells you everything you need to know to escape the wrath of my elite friends. :-(

        • Breathial says:

          DK, you’re quite pretentious , but in every way wanting.

          Your qualifications are nonexistent, your experience as a janitor and whatever other delusional rattle around in that large and empty skull are no match for reality.

          You forever claim credit for correctly predicting the future, because you make wildly contradictory statements on every subject. Basically you spew sh!t and then strut around bragging about your marksmanship when something actually sticks.

          Finally, the dating-site photos showing you to be a flaccid, feckless excuse for a man gave several hours of laughter.

          Were you even HALF the man you pretend to be, YOU would be sitting in Janet Yellin’s chair.

          Oh, and were we to do a side-by-side comparison of resume’s, education and actual jobs, you’d look even more flaccid then usual. As it is, a loser like you literally couldn’t *get* to the front door, much less get in.

          Isn’t there some Asian porn-star/wife-dating site you could be perusing, instead of bloviating bullsh!t here?

          • Hugh Janus says:

            Please provide a link to said website.

            I can’t wait to see the website full of fat, arrogant, entitled American women begging for foriegn husbands.

            • Breathial says:

              I didn’t save the address. I certainly didn’t look at the women on the website, as (unlike Douche-nozzle Kid) I have a woman in my life. After much laughter at DK’s pics and hilarious self-description, I closed it out.

              I could do a search and find it… but I just don’t care enough to bother. I’m sure there are others who could provide the link (assuming he hasn’t deleted his profile in much-deserved embarrassment).

          • durangokidd says:

            Breathial: Believe that if you want. I could care less. My calls are in the archives and in black and white. They have been SPOT ON for years; contrary to Alt Media, and more accurate than LSM.

            Try to attack the messenger if you cannot attack the message. Care to make a different economic argument? I didn’t think so, shit for brains.

            If you took umbrage at my post, you must be one of the financial midgets that I have trampled on here over the years, or an Alt Media Sheeple who has swallowed the HYPERINFLATION meme, hook, line, and sinker; who cannot defend that position because it is totally irrational.

            Fuck off, aswipe !!! :-)

            • durangokidd says:

              Breathial: Identify the “wildly contradictory statements” and I will be glad to enlighten you as to how they fit together, if you can. They would be in the archives.

              You can’t. :-)

              • Breathial says:

                I would, if you were worth my time. You’re not. You’re a phony, the TRUE “keyboard commando.” You’re a fat, single, useless blob of flesh that should feel guilty for wasting perfectly good oxygen.

                The people who’ve been here for a while know you’re on every side of every issue, and thus are able to claim “credit” for being “accurate.” LOL. What a joke.

                BTW, did you have any success scrubbing the pics of yourself from the dating websites? 😉

                If you took umbrage at my post, you must be one of the financial midgets that I have trampled on here over the years, or an Alt Media Sheeple who has swallowed the HYPERINFLATION meme, hook, line, and sinker; who cannot defend that position because it is totally irrational.

                Uh-huh. Hyperinflation “meme.” Your claims to have “trampled” such people who are educated (when you’re utterly obtuse) is both comical, and rather sad; you’re so far behind the curve you actually think you’re in the lead.

                And why would I take “umbrage” at a remark from a loser douche-nozzle such as you? It would imply your words have value; they don’t.

                Try to attack the messenger if you cannot attack the message. Care to make a different economic argument? I didn’t think so, shit for brains.

                There is no economic “argument,” dummy. It IS, what it is. You stay in the amateur leagues, here at SHTF, because most of the readers of the comments aren’t sufficiently astute to recognize you’re a bullsh!tter. But I do.

                If you had the stones to post at zerohedge, you’d get your @$$ kicked daily.

                As for brains, I’ve more education and understanding than you ever will. As well, I’m a documented genius. Basically, that means that I see things others don’t, can crunch permutations faster than others, and so on. An interesting side-effect of being a genius, is being disgusted by BS-artists who clearly couldn’t find their @ssholes with both hands a road map. In short, I’ve no tolerance of fools like you.

                So your pathetic little challenge to debate economics, is a non-starter, because an honest debate is predicated on intellectual honesty- which pretty much eliminates you.

        • WhoWuddaThunkIt says:

          Hey DQ selling his ECON BS for $48. This is the Clown that thought the first day drop on the dow was a 7% decline. Which was only about 2% in reality. He also thinks the Yuan and Dollar are Pegged together as if the foreigm exchange rate is constant and never changes between the 2 currencies. And now this DK Assclown tries to sell his BS .02 cents economic CD for $49.
          Bwhahahahahaha

          DK you need to go get a real job flipping burgers. I would let you balance my checkbook. Then he tries to tell us he has a credit card at 3%. Liar!!! And then fesses up his Zero Rate card was just an initial promo rate then climbs to 12.99%. Which is probably tied to a home equity loan. Then tells us he knows Banker Talk… No wonder your Ex Wife kicked you out of the house. $49 CD. = DKiddy AssClown

          • Breathial says:

            When DK tells do many lies that he can no longer keep them all straight, his entertainment value goes straight to zero.

          • durangokidd says:

            WWHTI: Yes I misspoke, The 7% I mentioned was not for the day, but the aggregate percentage drop from the high, at that point in time. Altogether the overall drop was 12.5% making it a 10-20% correction from my Spring call.

            Haven’t checked the markets yet today, but yesterday was another down day so the correction continues. Did you make a call last SPRING ???

            Did you catch that link I provided just for you for the Yuan Dollar Peg??? :-)

        • Anonymous says:

          The article speaks of an event that will never happen. Period.

          The CIS nations don’t count. Period.

          Russia is going down the tubes, as is China. They both will soon be irrelevant outside of their nukes, and we certainly can handle those. Obama is on the way out and he ain’t gonna get away with pulling any fast ones before he leaves. Period.

          Hillary is toast. Period. (Her prison jumpsuit is probably being cut and sewn as we speak.)

          Who replaces Obama is open to question. As Peggy Noonan recently penned, America is in play. Perry, Huckabee, Graham, and the other minor players are all but out of the running. Kasich blew it with his support for gay marriage. Rubio won’t be able to overcome his youth, inexperience, and too-smooth-to-be-trusted image problem. Carson will fade and perhaps get Surgeon General or Secretary of HHS. Trump will not get the nomination and will be seen as simply having been a mole for the Democrats if he goes 3rd party. Fiorina’s primary problem is she’s a woman — the leader of the free world will not be taken seriously by other world leaders if the leader of the free world wears a skirt…sorry, but it’s just a fact of life. Cruz has a chance but the GS connection will hurt him. Walker is fading. So who will be the lucky winner? Quite possibly someone who has not yet announced, but who is carefully and closely watching the game.

          Dkidd: You’re right. The current underclass and other assorted benefit seekers would be well advised to rather quickly get themselves as far away from dependence on welfare as they can, because the doors are closing. The mood of the country going into this election is one of the makers ready to cut off the takers…cold turkey if need be. Those free educations with free breakfasts/lunches/weekend snacks have produced nothing but more takers. The pockets of the makers are near the empty point, and, the makers are fed up with fearing for their basic safety just by doing their weekly shopping. The mobs and gangs have picked the wrong society to prey upon. Americans are fed up as never before and they’re not going to stand by and watch as their lives get yanked from them by a bunch of entitlement-addicted punks.

          I wouldn’t want to be a Section-8 landlord or EBT-dependent business going into the 2017 innaugural ceremonies.

        • sixpack says:

          Here’s another good one:

          Hillary is stumping through Iowa when suddenly, a cow wanders out into the road, in front of the campaign bus and they hit it full on, and the bus slams to a stop.

          Hillary, in her usual charming manner, screams at the chauffeur, “You get out and check, you were driving.”

          So the chauffeur gets out, checks, and sees that the poor cow did not fare well on its unexpected tumble under the bus. He reports that the animal is dead, but that at least it was old, and would probably have died soon, anyway.

          “You were driving, so you go and tell the farmer,” shouts Hillary.

          Two hours later the chauffeur returns totally plastered, hair ruffled, with a big grin on his face.

          “My God, what happened to you?” asks Hillary?

          The chauffeur replies, “When I got there, the farmer opened his best bottle of malt whiskey, the wife served me a wonderful meal and the daughter gave me the best sex I have ever had.”

          “Why on earth did they do that?” asks Hillary.

          “I just knocked on the door and when it opened I said to them, “I’m Hillary Clintons driver, and we’ve had an accident, and I killed the old cow.”

            Gee, if a full-blown collapse happens here, I wonder where the got will get the funding to maintain their surveillance state, police state and to enforce all of their little rules and regulations.

            Cops won’t be writing many, if any, traffic infractions—and we all know that is a big revenue maker for the states. Few people will be able to drive, much less drive fast. Cops won’t have much time for sitting in the bushes with radar guns, when the angry black masses are intent on car-jacking him for his running vehicle and gun.

            I’ll bet there’ll be no politicians out kissing babies either. The code enforcement thugs won’t be out looking for violations, for fear of being robbed and beaten too. They’ll be more interested in getting out of their burning offices.

            In short, the usual thugs will be on the run from the other thugs, leaving US room to get away…or so I hope.

              Yep Six, When the Poop get so thick and there is no back up for the Cops they will retreat. They know when its not worth it or beyond their control. Or they will just find good cover and start shooting at the worst of the looting scumbags.

              I am looking at night vision IR scopes and monoculars. Yep damn expensive, then I ask what is my life worth? There was lots of movememt in the woods last night, got little sleep, and I sure would have loved to see what the heck it all was. Walking out into the night with a flashlight is suicide.

              • Walking out into the night with a flashlight is suicide.

                that and turning on any lights in the house when you hear that bump in the night is also suicide , or racking that shot gun to “scare” the intruder away ..

                that dam gun should always have a round up and ready , the only time you should hear a shot gun rack is after the first intruder has fallen

        • laeagle says:

          Central planning and socialism are not compatible with a healthy growing economy except perhaps in the Scandinavian countries. Why? I am not sure. Russia tried a free market system but crashed horribly when the oligarchs quickly took over. Putin has brought a halt to that but himself has become an ‘indispensable’ oligarch over everything. War with Russia may be inevitable. Many scholars believe Ezekiel 38 & 39 prophesy that war. Will it be WWIII? Perhaps. The kings of the East could be China or could be Persia.

          It is hard to conceive a total collapse of the dollar, but at the rate at which fiat dollars are being created it may not be too far fetched. All commodities need a market. The only commodity Russia has at the moment is oil, gas, and weapons. I wonder which one of these will help their economy most in the near future? What about an airbase in Syria? Ez 38&39?

            “That China and Russia are now overtly divesting themselves of U.S. dollar assets signals a significant paradigm shift in global trade.”

            “OVERTLY” ??? LMFAO !!! Thats assbackwards. :-)

            China and Russia have been FORCED to sell their US Treasuries to protect their plummeting currencies. They had NO CHOICE !!! And it hardly made a blip in the market for US Treasuries.

            The “significant paradigm shift in global trade” has begun with the devaluation of the Mexican Peso. It will continue to decline against the dollar in a measured way, setting up the transfer of excess global production to Mexico.

              “But as the Federal Reserve is left with no choice but to print trillions more to keep financial markets from ruin, the creditors who usually buy those assets are drying up.”

              The FED is not left with “no choice”.

              Even if they choose to create more dollars, those dollars will only replace the losses of the banks. NO HYPERINFLATION and no loss of corporate investors, pension funds, money market managers, and other fiduciaries to buy US Bonds.

              The next downturn will trigger massive deflationary processes, just as it did in 2008/2009. The drop in market value of both financial assets and hard assets, like real estate, represent the DESTRUCTION of massive numbers of dollars, even if those dollars are in the main, digital dollars.

              The only “creditors drying up” are the BRIC’s because they are going broke having to sell their US Bonds to shore up their currencies before their economies are completely destroyed. And that is working too well for them.

              The FED is kicking their ass and kicking their ass bad. Eventually war will be the result but American weapon systems are superior and more numerous. Laser weapon technology is advancing at a rapid pace. The longer it takes for war to break out the greater the advantage now, to the West.

                DK, Thanks for your always poignant, insightful, and somewhat contrarian perspective. The BRICS do look like they are ready to crumble, bricabrac they are. I don’t care much for the elite but it is hard for me to understand how red-blooded Americans can be rootin’ for the communists and fascists of the world. I am not sure what India was thinking when they sided with The Chinese and Russians. There always has been an element in India who connected with the Soviets but free market thinking is raising their ship. Unfortunately corruption at every level of government is destroying the tremendous economic gains they have made in the last 20 to 30 years. There are some states in India governed by the communists. Kind of like Massachusetts vs Texas.

                  They are literally between a rock and a hard place geographically, and then they have Pakistan nipping at their heels too, with Iran close behind. Thus their alignment with Russia.

                  “Greater Iran” actually includes and claims most of India and parts of China according to Iran.

                  The only worst places, geographically speaking in the world, are Lebanon, Poland, and Ukraine; meaning that the Baltic States are not defensively, at all.

                  Poland, Ukraine, and Germany could defend themselves against Russia in a conventional war. :-)

                  The New World Order is what red-blooded Americans hate the MOST. The NWO is that organized amalgamation of power hungry interest groups who have invaded the USA from within, hoping to change the USA from within, because they “hate US for our freedoms”. They consist of fascists and communists working together where they can to promote their own Agenda and special interests, while posing as Republicans and Democrats.

                  Putin is an attractive character because he is a nationalist who loves Russia and who has administered his government to the benefit of Russian interests; if not always the Russian people.

                  Putin demands that “migrants” become Russian, and speak Russian; unlike the NWO who want to destroy everything American and replace it with an “Open Society”.

                  Even if some country could “get the drop” on US, they would still face 100 million gun owners with 300 million guns and enormous stockpiles of ammo. Braveheart alone can hold off a regiment with his guns and ammo.

                  Military domination of America is not feasible and any attack of any significance by any nation would not be just foolhardy but an act of suicide. Remember the neocons invaded and destroyed three countries in retaliation for three WTC Towers that they themselves destroyed.

                Durango,

                I hope you’re wrong about the whole shebang ending up in a shooting war. The losing side will eventually wind up using their nuclear weapons as a last resort, triggering a full scale nuke party that’s guaranteed to blow your head apart, as Emerson, Lake, and Palmer would say. Now you would think with a name like mine that this would be my favorite cup of tea to be served, but sometimes names, like appearances, can be deceiving.

              • Brandon Smith says:

                Durango is partially correct, but for the wrong reasons, which of course, he will never admit to even when the dollars in his pocket are mostly worthless.

                The Fed does indeed have a choice, either to print or to raise interest rates and tighten policy. No one in the mainstream is asking them to raise rates, so the fact that they are about to do it anyway should tell you something. The problem is, IT DOES NOT MATTER which method they choose, the dollar will still collapse in value. If they tighten, this will damage US markets, investors will lose faith, the derivatives market will continue the implosion it started back in 2008, China will continue to dump U.S. bonds as it is now doing in order to support the Yuan and provide liquidity for their own markets, and the dollar will crash because EVERYONE including US allies will dump the currency and US bonds just to avoid being the last one holding the bag when value tanks.

                If the fed continues to print through QE4, all faith in the central bank’s ability to stave off market crisis will be lost because QE4 will be an open admission by the Fed that the last three QEs were an UTTER FAILURE. Keep in mind that ZIRP is still operational and yet markets are crashing anyway. The era of fiat stimulus is OVER. QE no longer has the ability to prop up markets.

                Durango’s delusion is his assumption that the East and West are “at odds”. This is nonsense and I have proven time and time again that all central banks collude towards globalization, including the Fed and the PBOC. The Fed isn’t “kicking ass”, it is working lock step with all other central banks to create a crisis environment. The fed is nothing more than a branch bank of the BIS.

                Beyond that, the U.S. is the most indebted nation in history with hundreds of trillions in liabilities stemming from entitlement programs as well as debts and interest accumulated through decades of borrowing from Social Security to pay off other debts. China’s debts pale in comparison. If you want to know who has been chosen to survive the coming collapse, just look at where all our allies are placing their support for currency swaps. Every nation is building up a forex relationship with the new BRICS bank and moving away from the dollar, while the IMF is set to elevate the Yuan as a new reserve currency next year. The Fed does not need to hyperinflate in order to kill the dollar; the dollar’s value will fall quickly once it loses its world reserve status.

                At that point, you will see Durango disappear from these forums, never to be seen again and never to answer for all the terrible information he has been spreading here.

                • durangokidd says:

                  Brandon: I’ll respond point by point to you and it will take time throughout the day as I do have other things to do.

                  “The Fed does indeed have a choice, either to print or to raise interest rates and tighten policy. No one in the mainstream is asking them to raise rates, so the fact that they are about to do it anyway should tell you something.

                  RESPONSE: If the FED prints they will only print dollars to replace the losses of the banks. They have been very successful in managing a two tier economy for seven years; meaning enriching the Uber Rich and suppressing the Consumer.

                  They have never tried to stimulate the economy. Crushing the American consumer was necessary to undermine China as it became a military and financial threat: ie South China sea; BRICK’s bank.

                  Of course, no one in the mainstream wants them to raise rates. The greedy investment class wants ever bp they can get. A 25 or 50 bp rate hike will not spell doom for the American markets. It will have a devastating effect on Emerging Markets sucking investment dollars back to US Bonds.

                  Volcker had to raise the prime rate to 21% back in the day to stop borrowing and slow the economy. The two tier economy is working for the Uber Rich and a few bp will not affect them much at all. Neither will it effect the bottom tier. It might affect sub prime car loans but the market is saturated now anyway.

                  So if the FED raises rates or not, depends upon how much pressure they want to put on the BRIC’s. :-)

                  “The problem is, IT DOES NOT MATTER which method they choose, the dollar will still collapse in value. ”

                  RESPONSE: The dollar will not collapse in value.There is NO causal relationship between a rate hike or not, and “dollar collapse”. I suspect what you mean by “dollar collapse” is a worthless dollar.

                  The dollar is strengthening as it does every time at this point within the business cycle. Some believe it has a long way to go yet on this trend. Eventually this trend will reverse after the next decline is over.

                  The long term goal of the NWO has been a much stronger RMB to fuel other world economies, including Europe and the USA. China doesn’t want to play that game. The NWO will now transfer excess world production to Mexico and the Mexican Peso is dropping in anticipation of that transfer.

                  The NWO holds their wealth in dollars and dollar denominated assets. To believe that they will destroy their currency is irrational and to believe that another power has that capability is pure nonsense when all other currencies are in rout.

                  Explain, if you can, HOW the dollar will “collapse”. I am anxious to hear your theory. :-)

                  RESPONSE: Brandon you believe that QE was designed to stimulate the economy. That premise is wrong. QE was primarily designed to replace the losses of the member banks and protect their balance sheets. Raising financial asset values for the investment class was just a fortunate side effect.

                  The FED knows exactly what they are doing because their super computers are constantly using sensitivity analysis to model any eventuality. So they know EXACTLY what they are doing to US. :-(

                  RESPONSE: I really like this internet meme Brandon. Zero Hedge has already analyzed the effects of China selling the $1.1 trillion in US Bonds that they own over the next year and ZH concluded that this action would REVERSE 60% of QE and raise bond rates 3%.

                  Q: What is the NORMAL, DESIRED long term rate for US Bonds?

                  The BRIC’s bank has not issued its own currency, but I will assume that the Yuan will be the primary currency used by that bank. If the members of the BRIC Bank run their bank like they ahve run their economies I don’t think that the World Bank has anything to worry about.

                  Every nation IS building up a forex relationship with China and the Yuan. This is essential prior to the Yuan becoming a world reserve currency.

                  Do the research and you will discover that there are a number of NECESSARY requirements that China must meet before becoming an IMF member; not the least of which is the free flow of capital, and a FREE FLOATING YUAN. The Chinese FEAR a free floating Yuan.

                  The USA CONTROLS access to IMF membership. China’s action in the South China Sea, and its massive cyber spying will delay their access to the IMF. Even Jim Willie now says that China will NEVER be admitted to the IMF.

                @DK. Your timeline is wrong. China began dumping their treasuries quite a few months back. The goal of which was to paralyze the U.S. treasury auctions moving forward. Just look at the questions Bill Gross had of PIMCO.

                There is now no one to buy US Treasuries. Thus, the Fed will print and do the purchases. Haven’t you been listening lately…..The FED is laying the ground work by floating concepts like….QE4….which is bullshit because QE3 never stopped.

                The BRICS isn’t broke either you silly NWO BOT. It’s in a regional scope. It hasn’t lent any money. You’ll get a good look at the BRICS real soon when IRAN breaks the Nuclear agreement and starts routing all their financial transactions through that bank instead of the BIS (Bank of International Settlements).

                You better hope and pray I’m right that China gets in as part of the Special Drawing Right this November….even though the IMF, in a pathetic last gasp attempt to control world finance, wants them to wait one more year. Otherwise, me thinks the new election pol speak will gravitate to….It’s the economy stupid.

                  CS: I will get to the other critcs later when I have more time.

                  1. It was only when the Chinese economy, WHICH IS PEGGED TO THE DOLLAR, imploded by the DELIBERATE collapse of the American consumer by the FED, that the Chinese began selling their US Bonds in earnest. The previous sales and purchases on the open market were used to manage the Yuan or to purchase other assets for Chinese Government owned Corporations, or provide funding for their over seas expansion in other ways: all at the expense of the American Taxpayer.

                  • durangokidd says:

                    2. “There is now no one to buy US Treasuries.” Not true. Not true AT ALL. Most sovereign nations own US Bonds, as do multinationals, pension funds, money managers, other fiduciaries and most investors with excess cash.

                    US Bonds and Treasuries is where the NWO Corporations park their cash when they are not actually using it. The market is broad and deep. These paper instruments represent the WEALTH of these NWO corporations and organizations; because it is backed by the largest economy in the world and the most powerful, most capable military in the world.

                    Consider how long Japan has remained afloat with its Central Bank buying most of its securities. I wish the FED would buy ALL US securities, the WE The People could default on the FED and hang the bankers. They will be buying more bad loans after the next crash.

                    The dollar will die by emp, and nuclear war. Maybe a pole shift. But not until the most powerful and most capable military in the world that defends it and the wealth it symbolizes for the NWO, is destroyed. Thats reality. :-)

                • durangokidd says:

                  The BRIC’s aren’t broke??? LMAO!!! Of course they are broke and if the FED raises rates 25 or 50 bp it will get MUCH worse for those economies; having a much bigger impact on their markets as global investors pulled out to put their money in US BONDS, than it will have on our own economy.

                  I don’t know that it will, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see a 25-50 bp rate hike actually STIMULATE the US Economy. WHY ??? Consider that Volcker had to push the prime rate to 21% to slow lending, easy money, and speculation. That COULD happen again as corporations and investors race to get cheap money before it goes away.

                  With respect to Iran, I support the AGREEMENT because Iran will get the bomb one way or another. Under the AGREEMENT the P5+1 and the United Nations Security Council would have to authorize an attack on Iranian nuclear sites by the WEST (READ: USA). It won’t. Let Israel do their own dirty work with assistance from Saudi Arabia. And they will. :-(

                  China will not into the CLUB this year. Maybe not even next year depending upon geopolitical events between now and then. China’s financial system is systemically flawed, needing additional reforms, that cannot be initiated given its current financial crisis.

                  More importantly, CAPITAL must be free to leave China at will by investors, individuals, and corporations. That freedom does not exist. The free flow of capital does not exist in China, or there would be much, much larger outflows during this crisis.

                  This is just ONE criteria that China meet to get access. China has moved too quickly showing its hand prematurely and revealing its desire to run the CLUB and not follow the Rules of the Club. It may NEVER get in. Even Jim Willie says that China will never be allowed into the Club.

                  The USA controls the Club with the major voting rights. Given China’s Cyber Attacks, and military buildup in the South China sea, I would have to agree with Willie (though I most often don’t). :-)

Finland actually speaks a language related to Hungarian, and is not a Germanic language at all. They were “Finlandized” (a common term during the Cold War) by the USSR. Norway has quite a bit of oil money, and the Danes seem to have a bit more business orientation. Norway was occupied by the Germans, who transited Sweden by train, in WWII. This left quite a bit of bitterness by the Norwegians against the Swedes, who were ravaged by the Germans.

              100 years ago, Sweden was the 5th richest country in the world, by some accounts. Life Magazine I think around 75 years ago or more called it the most well-off country in the world (whatever that meant). Today… not so good. Despite the election of a conservative, Karl Bildt. In the earl 1990s, the kroner took a massive nose dive, forcing Sweden to wake up + similar to what happened in Canada a few years later. Despite considering the NY Times socialist rag, there is an explanatory article at http://www.nytimes.com/2008/09/23/business/worldbusiness/23krona.html?_r=0 on the topic.

              The southern cities are overrun with Muslims… Malmö and Göteborg have no go zone for the police and fire dept. Here’s a few videos for the disaster there from radical Muslims: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uLE_yGMBdUc ; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KzLECtFT4aU ; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g0sRmpvdIIk ; I actually have a former Muslim friend who became a Christian, who was one of those Muslim immigrants (he now lives in North America).

              A bit of rambling, and more focused on Sweden, but the Nordic countries are NOT that well off. Worse, they have frittered away historic wealth, like the British, and their goulash socialism brought at least Sweden to the financial brink in the 1990s. And Norway is simply the beneficiary of good luck from North Sea oil. All this garbage out the socialist Nordic countries being well of is just that – garbage. No, they aren’t Zimbabwe; they also aren’t fully socialist, either, which is why they didn’t become Zimbabwe. Don’t put them on a financial pedestal, as they are definitely no Singapore or Hong Kong.

              The people involved in this think they can control the uncontrollable. Their goal: Less than a half billion people left standing…forever…with a government straight out of a dictatorship-socialist science fiction novel.

              Problem is: They can’t do that without the resultant total destruction of planet earth…but they are too arrogantly stupid to acknowledge that and the fact that they won’t be able to “civilize” most Islamists because of the sheer insanity of the contents of the Koran.

          • sixpack says:

            I’ve got a couple of questions. I have a Barnett Quad400 crossbow with 150 lb draw. The bow has solid limbs, attached by a hex bolt.

            I want to get another limb, about a 75 lb draw, so I don’t have to use the cocking device, I can draw it by hand (and foot).

            Can I just get another limb and switch them out on the same stock, making the bow a 75 lb draw?

            If I do this, will a 75 lb draw still be enough power to drop something bigger than a rabbit?

            • WhoWuddaThunkIt says:

              Sixpack, no expert here on the crossbow, but I just bought one with a 385 FPS. Feet per second firing of the bolt. I think that what ever draw it has, the key is how fast the arrow bolt will fly. The faster the fly in FPS the flatyer the trajectory siatance out. If your bolt is less than it is important to get closer to your game to make a greater impact. You could kill a deer with a sharp stick if you can get close enough to drive through the ribcage to create damage. I am not familiar with all the crossbow terms, but maybe consult a bow hunter in your area to check out your gear.

              Also you can get the bolt tips with the 2 inch broad head razor tips which will do good damage to stop game.

              I am on a learning curve here also with the crossbow and turkey season opens up here Sept 19th. Deer is in mid Oct. Happy hunting!!

                Cross bows are virtually silent, can defeat standard issue vests, and allow suburban hunting, require no permits, if you pay cash are untraceable.

                Where is the downside?

                • sixpack says:

                  My problem is, the 150 lb draw is too much for me to draw without a cocking device, which is terribly slow. I might need to send more than one arrow down range, when I might not have 3-4 minutes to reload…see what I’m getting at?

                  I’d like to know if I could still punch a hole in something big, mean and in my face with a lighter draw than 150 lbs. I’m not worried so much about speed, since I’m not talking about hitting a fleeing buck, a squirrel or a bird.

                  • yes 75# is still quite a formidable weight of bow strength

                    having the ability to pull it back faster is also a bonus

                    If the arms are built for that “stock” or for that set up, there should be no problems ..May have to look into adjusting your sites , and possibly your string

                    silent and deadly killers are a very good tool and skill to own

            • Mountain Trekker says:

              sixpack don’t really know much about crossbows, but any weapon than kills using a broadhead or edged cutting devise, kills by hemorrhage and has no shock effect, so a 75 lb draw will work but don’t expect what ever you use it on to just drop where you shoot it. I just recently killed a 350lb black bear with a 60 lb draw compound bow and had a good hit but it still went some distance. So if you want to drop something where it stands you had better stick to a gun that has shock effect. Trekker Out.

              • sixpack says:

                Thanks Trekker. If I have to send one from my doorstep, I won’t likely be tracking the recipient anywhere. I don’t want to attract any attention, which is why I opted for a crossbow. I’m striving for “silent but deadly”

                  And if you left that plug in the ammo tube for decades from duck hunting that spring is pretty weak and should be replaced. In SHTF no tube plugs are required and you would rather fill the tube full of future hot lead.

                  I saw this on my dads old Remmington 12 g. Circa 1947. Took the old wooden spindle plug out and replaced the spring and viola a fully loaded shot gun ready for work. Go through each of your weapons and make sure they are in top shape. Later on in SHTF it will be hard to find old parts for it.

        Here is what Netanyahu said back in 1990 when he was secretly recorded. Why does the US let this F-N Criminal ZOG Terrorist set foot in our Country is disturbing. Read this:

        Much of the following scenario was outlined initially in 1990 in a discussion at Fink’s Bar in Jerusalem. At the head of the table was Netanyahu. The group at the table had just stolen 5 American KG 84 cryptographic devices with the help of Canadians serving with the UNTSO on the Golan Heights, giving this Israeli-led cabal real-time access to all US State Department, Naval and NATO communications. This is a transcribed quote taken from an audio recording of Netanyahu at that meeting:

        “If we get caught they will just replace us with persons of the same cloth. So it does not matter what you do, America is a golden calf and we will suck it dry, chop it up, and sell it off piece by piece until there is nothing left but the world’s biggest welfare state that we will create and control. Why? Because it is the will of God, and America is big enough to take the hit so we can do it again and again and again. This is what we do to countries that we hate. We destroy them very slowly and make them suffer for refusing to be our slaves

      Since you don’t seem to live in any real world I recognize, can you perhaps suggest what I should be smoking to duplicate your hallucinatory results, should I wish to leave this reality for your dopey Wonderland? I guess you haven’t been paying attention to what has been happening since the various state laws have been passed since Sandy Hook. All of them, I repeat ALL of them, have been nullified by “I Will Not Comply” armed civil disobedience. In CT they have an 85% non-compliance rate. In New York it is estimated to be 90%, with county sheriffs in upstate threatening to arrest any state cops who come into their jurisdiction seeking to enforce the wildly misnamed SAFE Act. In CO, I have led smuggling efforts and public demonstrations flouting their law. Same goes for WA state and OR, where we have had armed marches on the capitol steps, breaking Bloomberg’s laws and daring them to do anything about it. We even held a “background-check-free” arms expo/gun show in violation of the law in WA, daring the authorities to do anything about it. They did nothing. The politicians in each of these states have not sent one raid party to enforce their unconstitutional diktats. Indeed, they seem, after almost three years of such armed resistance, not to know whether to defecate or go blind. So who, you stupid, silly little collectivist cypher, are you going to get to enforce your “benevolent” tyranny? Planning on coming yourself? No. I didn’t think so. But until you do, until you decide to have the courage of your so-called convictions and send men with state sanctioned violence to our doors, then kindly shut up. You’re boring the rest of us with your impotent prattle. But, by all means, if it makes you feel better, go back and take another toke of whatever it is you’re smoking.

        many,many,many, are unprepared. The worst part is the majority are not spiritually and mentally prepared.

        There are events coming that even the Preachers are not prepared for. Some are planned by our own evil leaders, along with other nations. Some are events that will be blamed on Natural/Earthly events. Some will be Supernatural events that are put into motion by our Creator, in order to humble a defiant nation in hopes that they will return to Him, before it is too late.

        These events will be continual and the duration will seem to go on forever as things escalate, and get worse for the unbelievers. Hunger and starvation will be two big problems for the unprepared and unbelievers.

        Once the gov takes control of all food growing and harvesting, they will put chemicals and toxins into the foods. A man of God has seen the vision of many houses with cupboards full of canned food, but they would not eat it because it was poison.

                    The big Question is, Does Man have a soul? If he does for what purpose. A scientist did find there is a change in weight after a person dies. Is a live person easier to carry? Coining the phrase Dead Weight. Kirwin Photography has produced images after a cut leaf was made whole in the image. Energy Field? Life?

                  • WhoWuddaThunkIt says:

                    Interesting concept Sling. What is a Soul? Or is it a made up concept to fit into a religions missing gap theory? Like comfort food is for the hungry. I studied and was raised as a Christian, but none of it made any sense and was very contradictory and hypocritical. Dead weight to me is a limp body with no reaction. I have lifted many dead bodies as a paramedic. Depends on how dead or decomposed they are. Dead as in stiff when rigamortus sets are easy to move, and not one ever complained. A soul to me is just a conceot to lend to religions theory. Dead is dead like a dirt nap, no more brain action and the body decomposes into dust over time. I do not fear death, as that is just another natural cycle of life. I would never want to be burriend in a casket and have a mortician pick and probe and abuse my body to make me look alive for relatives to visit one last time and so they can comment, oh he looks so at peace. Thats some morbid shit there folks. Why not take me home and hang me on the wall next to the deer heads. Just bury me at sea with the living creatures so I can again nourish life. A soul is just a concept, nothing but an unexplained made up gap filler for religion to assume you are moving on to some other place. In reality all any of us will be when we are dead is a memory for the remaining living and nothing more.

                    Thats my take on that subject.

Also, even if you get out of Memphis, do you think the tribes of people on the roads are going to let you through because you refer to yourself in the third person moniker of “brave heart”?

          If the government puts all these toxins in the food to poison us, then we really don’t need to care about flooding on the east coast now do we? You remind of an article I once read right here on this site, about people who you do and don’t want in your prepper group.

          There was a tv show on the History channel about some kind of disease wiping out most of humanity and a family who survived the initial onslaught. It was a long time ago so I don’t remember what is was called. Anyway, the family which is a guy, his wife and son, make it to safety in a small community. Naturally, there’s a religious kook spouting off about how ” they” had all been saved by God while everybody else had been ” winnowed” out by this God. This insane preacher guy went on to say that a meal would be served, ” after” church services were over, of course, for those who attended, The message was clear, if you want to eat, we’d better be seeing you at all the church services. The family decided that this was not the place for them and moved on to a different community which was not so insane.

          I see you as the preacher type trying his best to take over the remnants of civilization to fit your ideas of what people should think. I’ll be doing the same thing that the family did if I find myself in that kind of situation, you’ll just be trying to start the same old mind control nonsense that people always do , but the first thing they need to do is gain the ” authority” figure status of a group to gain control. I’ll pass thanks.

            I can guarantee you one damn thing, I will not be leading any group as a so-called preacher. When the shtf, the time for preaching and teaching is over.

And if they belive a God created the earth then why do they not defend her and nuture her instead of rape and torture her? Thats what I find so Hypocritical about Religion.

            Rich – I saw that movie on the History Channel a few years ago as well. That’s weird you mentioned it, I was just thinking about it yesterday.

            I just wanted to say that normal people do not have a desire to control individuals/groups. Even in a SHTF scenario; if they weren’t a mind-controller before the SHTF, they won’t become one afterwards. It’s just not their nature.

            They may want to control how something is done – they want a say, they may want to be in control of something, but they don’t want to control people and their minds. And, they don’t want to control everything, sometimes they just want a say, a voice… which is normal.

            BTW, the technical term for mind-controller is psychopath. Normal people are not mind-controllers because there is nothing normal about controlling the mind’s of others. Only the disordered mind wants to control people’s minds. That’s why it’s well known and has been proven that ALL cult-leaders (including family-cults) are psychopaths.

            • Rich says:

              Common Cents,

              Yes, I appreciate your posting, you make good sense. There is one thing however that I want to point out about the show, the people who were running the church thing made it clear to everybody in that little town that meals would be provided but ONLY after the church services were over and for those who attended. They were using food as a tool of mind control over people, if you want to eat, you had best be seen here in church praying in your loudest voice or go hungry. And that, in my opinion, made them no better than anyone who uses threats and punishment to achieve mind control.

        Order sprouting seeds and you can have something to add to your food before spring.

        • KY Mom says:

          gwynmarilyn,

          Good point!

          Here are a few things to add to your preps.

          SPROUTING SEEDS – Be sure to stock some sprouting seeds in your pantry. If we couldn’t get to the grocery store, due to a crisis situation (bad weather, blizzard, low finances, sick, etc.), fresh fruits and vegetables would be one of the first things we would miss. This would be especially important if there was a crisis situation was in the winter months.

          Our bodies need plant enzymes to help digest food and regulate bowels. Sprouts can be grown in 3-5 days. They are filled with plant enzymes and high in vitamins and fiber. Sprouts can be stored easily, as they take up very little space.

          If you can’t find sprouts locally, you can order online. You can purchase small packages or a #10 can. 5 lbs. of organic alfalfa seeds (sealed in a #10 can) have a shelf life of 10 years (unopened) when stored properly.

          MEDICINAL PLANT BOOKS – Many useful plants grow wild. Recognizing plants and knowing how to use may save your life someday.

          Stock plenty of BAKING SODA and VINEGAR – These both have many uses – cooking, cleaning, medicinal, etc. There are many articles on the internet about uses for these products.
          *Store baking soda in a glass container and it will last indefinitely.

          WOOLY LAMB’S EAR – Grow Your Own Antibacterial Bandages. The plant is medicinal and also edible. The leaves can be used as toilet paper and as menstrual pads.
          Seeds can be purchased online at Amazon. Plant some seeds around your house and cabin.

          CLOTH DIAPERS and DIAPER PINS – Diapers can also be used as bandages.

          Extra QUALITY CAN OPENERS

          ACTIVATED CHARCOAL – Activated Charcoal, no prepper better be without it. Take it for food poisoning & spider bites. Make a poultice for bites mixing the AC with ground flax. Put a thick layer over the bite and change every 4 hours or when it dries out until the bite goes down. You can drink AC mixed with water or I put it in gel caps. It works AMAZING for food poisoning, actually any poisoning or drug OD.

            “Organic alfalfa sprouts are beneficial in reducing symptoms of PMS and menopause, including hot flashes. Furthermore, they contain high concentrations of antioxidants, the body’s defense against the destruction of DNA which is the cause of aging.

            Alfalfa sprouts are abundant sources of vitamins A, B, C, E and K, the minerals calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium and zinc, carotene, chlorophyll, amino acids and trace elements. They contain 35% protein. Organic Alfalfa seed can produce over ten times the seeds weight in sprouts, one pound of alfalfa seed produces 10-14 pounds of sprouts.”

Markets are tanking, currencies are collapsing and commodity prices, now at 16-year lows, are plummeting because the world is sinking into depression.
      The collapse of 2008 was not “thee” collapse in a sense of the word. The real collapse, which is now upon us, was avoided temporarily while trillions of dollars were pumped into the system to prop up too big to fail finacial institutions, buy up bonds, and inflate commodity and equity markets. The party is over. There are no more silver bullets, and the last of the cards has been played.
      Just as the Titanic, the band will play on and the cocktails will still flow…while they insure us not to worry. Just a market correction. Remember, “she is unsinkable”. And while most are subdued into this false sense of security, the elite have already prepared for the world to come apart with there escape hideouts, and their hard assets, long decoupled from the fiat currencies that go hyper-inflated or deleveraged into oblivion.

      The severity of the collapse and of the collapse of the dollar, really will appear to come as a thief in the night. It will come just like a sudden slap in the face, and as suddenly as turning a light on with a light switch.

      Yet the collapse shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone. The warning signs of the collapse have been growing for years now, and at this present time, it is plain to see that the collapse is just before us. But what do most people do within Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth? They put their smart phones closer to their ears for longer lengths of time. They continue to laugh and play like everything is just going to be alright within Mystery, Babylon the Great. God has given everyone plenty of time to repent. People have made their choices and are accountable for their choices.

      Is there any doubt among anyone here after reading the following verses, that people condemn themselves?

      16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

      17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

      18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

      19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

      20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.

      21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God. “(John 3:16-21)

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

        Very few will come out of her alive. Very few even know what is about to commence.
        Very,very few even know what this verse means…..Luk 22:42
        “Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.”

        It was Jesus Christ prayer to the Heavenly Father, His own Father, to lift the duty that was set upon Him from the eons of time.
        Not a moment of weakness, that most preachers and seminaries teach. No, Christ knew very well that He was going to defeat Death by going to the Cross, so it wasn’t about that. He accepted that He was going to be beaten and kicked and clawed and spat upon as he dragged His weak and weary body to Calvary. He knew most of His friends would betray Him, throw stones and curse Him. Just like the world today, they don’t want truth.

        But; as He was thinking about His future duties and the pain and suffering it would bring, when he returns as King of Kings and Lord of Lords, to pour out that “cup” of wrath from God; that was what He was referring to in that prayer. If there was any other way to accomplish that duty. That prayer came out of love and compassion for mankind, even the ones that were crucifying Him. And, how can people still hate Him?

        That wrath is now upon us people. God is a jealous God and the world has put many gods before Him. The worst, being the love of self and money, with devilish pride. This does not end well for billions.

        Exo 20:3

        Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

        The first and most important commandment people, when did you forget it? Hmmm? But I am the one that has the mental problem?

        We shall soon see the so-called rational thinking from those that cast stones of anger towards Christians, when the earth starts shaking and reeling to and fro like a drunkard. When the seas roar with anger, and winds are moving rocks around. Every mountain and island is moved out of it’s original place. Who will be so high minded and self-preserving then? Hmmm?

        Just sayin’. Prepare!

          Passin,

          Yes, you’ve managed to find another nutcase to commiserate with, congratulations. BTW, what is ” soon”. I know, your answer will be this” Well, it could start this month, or it may take from 15-30 years , I really can’t say because it’s on ” Gods” timetable, not mine”. Which is nothing more than admitting that you really don’t know jack shit about where or when anything will happen, if ever. It’s nothing more than the sad hopes of an old man who’s pissed off because it’s not the 1960’s anymore and he’s getting closer to death with each passing day and wants everybody else to die along with him because he’s so damn miserable. Yeah, that’s your idea of ” heaven” I’ll bet, just a sorry, angry, sick in the head misguided old man.

      Quick put an enemy face on it; don’t let it be traced back to the source. Decades of bi-partisan consent of US leadership and voters is unbelievable; in the face of the clearest, most predictable outcomes; continuing to choose debt spending believing that intermediate defaults or collection shortfalls would be covered by new business loans brokered globally (the real globalization); a huge over-extended risk. And now, the music is over (a la Margin Call); there are no places to conquer with forced loans (World Bank, World Trade Org, Int’l Monetary Fund); no places to expand the money supply into; no venture opportunities; crossing the event horizon. New game starting.

      “Putin, the much-lauded savior of the misinformed world, has called for the end of using the US dollar in trade amongst Eurasian countries. The time frame given for this change is between the years 2025 and 2030. Hardly the mad rush out of dollars that is being widely promoted and regurgitated.”

      28 Benefits to Prepping Even if TEOTWAWKI Doesn’t Come

      ht tp://morethanjustsurviving.com/prepper-benefits/

      “While most preppers do take the threat of a financial crisis, a solar flare, or even a zombie apocalypse very seriously, there are many benefits to prepping even if these TEOTWAWKI situations never come about in our lifetimes.

      Many of the criticisms non-preppers make of preppers have to do with the fact that preppers seem “paranoid” about the future and apocalyptic, end of the world situations that probably won’t even come about in their lifetimes. What these people fail to see is that prepping has a phenomenal number of benefits for preppers even if these apocalyptic situations don’t end up taking place. The vast majority of preps will help in difficult situations that commonly arise in life.”

      • Archivist says:

        I tell people at the grocery store that buying extra groceries is better than putting the money in the bank. Even if there isn’t a sale, the prices are still lower now than they will be next month. Everyone can see that inflation is much higher than interest at the bank. The further ahead you are in buying groceries, the more money you save in the long run.
