    The Future Of America: “It’s Coming… Ukraine is a Warning”

    We’re beginning to see more and more discussions about how the laws, policies and regulations of our federal, state and local governments are working to impoverish the people of this country and restrict their liberties. So much so that even the taboo topic of a potential Ukraine-style collapse right here in America is now being openly discussed in mainstream circles.

    In a recent panel discussion on Fox News the question of whether or not Ukraine rioting is the future of America came to the forefront and long-time political operative and former Presidential adviser Pat Caddell weighed in.

    Like many of us, and despite his association with high level members of the Democrat Party, Caddell is concerned about what’s coming our way should things continue as they have been:

    What we’re seeing in the world… in Kiev… is American values at work. These people and the rest of the world are saying ‘we’re not putting up with this and we’ll put our lives on it.’

    In this country a populace equally dissatisfied with its political class and its leadership.

    We don’t have the same overt oppression, but we have a very soft oppression of complacency and corruption.

    And the American people… what you’re seeing there… they need their own outlet for that… it is a warning… because it’s coming.


    (Video: The Daily Sheeple)

    Ever since the beginning of the financial crisis, when Congressional Representatives were told that failure to pass a $1 trillion economic bailout would lead to martial law in America, we have warned that there will come a time when the people of this country will take to the streets.

    For years the mainstream ignored the warnings, even when the very same issues that drove hundreds of thousands of people onto the streets of Iceland, Ireland, Egypt, Spain, Greece and Egypt to depose their leadership and fight corruption appeared in America.

    For years the alternative media has attempted to awaken the masses. And though many Americans have gained an understanding of what is happening behind the scenes and why, the vast majority continue to eat up everything dished out to them via their televisions.

    Yet, now, even those stalwarts who previously refused to discuss or report on the reality of conditions on the ground over the last several years are coming around to the possibility of serious ramifications if something isn’t done.

    If you’re paying attention, you know something isn’t right. Soon, even those who refuse to accept what’s happening around them won’t be able to ignore it any longer.

                  Won’t be the same here as in Ukraine. We have firearms, they don’t, at least not legally. If they did this shit would have been over back in 2004 for Ukraines oligarchs, politicians and ruling elite. Same goes for Russia. It’s the biggest fear for our ruling elite, the armed citizens. To many of us and not enough of them. History shows it never ends well for the rulers once the people get pissed off enough.

        Yep, the Banksters saw how easy it was to steal all the assets of Russian citizens, impoverishing them to the point that millions died, and so they next went to Greece, Spain, etc., and did the exact same thing in those countries! Now, they’re trying to do the same thing here! The ONLY thing holding them back is the fact we are so well armed here in the U.S., but they are still screwing the hell out of all of us!

        They have even outlawed our attempts at switching to sustainability by saying that we are not allowed to live off the grid– even though its obvious to almost everyone the grid is going down…

There is a good chance food riots are coming to Amerika this summer, and if the decide to not let a good crisis go to waste and go for the gun grab, interesting is an understatement.

On the gun grab front, TPTB probably would have had better luck before the bubbles started popping. lots of folks who would have grubbled a little and then went along would hold out now. i hear lots of folks admit that things are falling apart, even though they ain’t realy prepping. most are making at least half harted efforts at least.

          I’ve been thinking about the gun grab that they seem to have been preparing for….and of course it won’t work. But I’ve sort of adjusted my ideas on what it will look like and how it will play out.

          I used to think there would start to be incidents sort of like Ruby Ridge or mini-Wacos that would herald that phase. Single people or small groups that they identify as potential ringleaders or whatever that they go after first to try to diffuse the reaction.

          But then came the new law(s) in Connecticut. They tried to force registration of perfectly reasonable weapons and magazines (so that they could eventually confiscate them), and in general pushed the envelope as they always do toward their nirvana of skittles and unicorn poop.

          And people didn’t much protest or make a big fuss…they just silently said “go to hell” and did nothing. A small percentage voluntarily complied, and the rest…just didn’t. And you know what? I think it took pretty much EVERYBODY, pro- or anti-gun, by surprise. There was no big violent uprising, no public display of unrest. They just said “no thank you” and tacitly removed their consent to be governed in that manner.

          And the most important thing: it’s been damned effective. The gun grabbers have nothing out of the whole exercise to point to in order to demonize gun owners, and no success to point to for their cause. They got in people’s faces, and people yawned and said “make us. Come and get them, and if you find them, try to prove they’re mine.” I would have paid good money to be a fly on the wall in those lawmakers’ offices as they got the news of how their law was working out.

          I think it could actually play out that way across America when they make their move. They’ll have to go to every gun-owning household and actually physically remove guns from possession of an unwilling populace. They don’t have the manpower for that…and there are a LOT of guns out there that will just simply and quickly “disappear” as soon as word is out that they’re doing it. It’s an impossible task.

          There is a lot to be unhappy or even outraged about in the current situation, but there are positive developments too. We shouldn’t forget that, and examine those positive developments for ways to increase our own effectiveness.

          So yes, for survivability I think Selco was EXACTLY right. Keep your head down and let the guys who are all cock and balls do the dying, if dying there must be. I have a family to protect and provide for…I don’t have the luxury of deciding to just throw my life away for some nebulous cause. I’ll look to what people are doing in Connecticut for my model of how to register my grievances with the government. It’s effective and it keeps my powder dry for a time when I might not have a choice in the matter.

            They have a lot of cards to play before they have to physically confiscate.

            It will be interesting to see what they do next, I’m going to watch that one.

            As they essentially control an individual’s access to credit, property, transportation, and now health care… “physical confiscation” would be sort of an act of desperation on their part. Too many strings they can already yank on.

            Yes, the only positive development I have gotten from all of this, is that I’ve finally found a group of others who, in general, think like I do. I don’t FEEL alone, even though I still AM alone here in my little corner. I no longer doubt my thoughts, because other people see it too.

            I don’t have to look to others for self-evaluation and validation, but it sure feels good to know that I’m not the only one out here.

            while I agree that the gun owners of Connecticut are doing the right thing, by ignoring the ? law ?.

            I have long thought this will go down in the following manner…

            1. men, will ignore this law – hide and conceal
            2. the state, will make examples of said men who get ratted by ex-wives or kids.
            3. Most men will decide it is too expensive and dangerous to hold out, or conceal the weapons. Or hide them so deep, that the weapons are of no utility, or are lost to time.

            jaxx,
            Elsewhere, I’ve heard that called “Irish democracy”. Here’s a quote:

            Quiet, anonymous, and often complicitous, lawbreaking and disobedience may well be the historically preferred mode of political action for peasant and subaltern classes, for whom open defiance is too dangerous….One need not have an actual conspiracy to achieve the practical effects of a conspiracy. More regimes have been brought, piecemeal, to their knees by what was once called “Irish Democracy”—the silent, dogged resistance, withdrawal, and truculence of millions of ordinary people—than by revolutionary vanguards or rioting mobs.

          I do know this and that is I have never had to deal with so much bullshit in my life than what I do now. I am tired of other people screwing with me. We need this and we need that. Then you fucking pay for it and leave me out. Most of the crap I would not use anyway.
          As far as a gun grab. Bring it if you got it.
          Once the first shots are fired in the early morning there will be many that say, “”THIS IS IT”. Just lock and load be ready.

          As Connecticut goes, so may go the Nation.

              More Democrat voters necessitates more free sh*t army inductees. And they ALWAYS yank welfare away at the most inopportune moment, if you’ve ever known anyone that’s been on it.

                  It’s playing out exatly like the Cloward-Piven plan.

                  Another interesting read is Philip Freneau “Rules for Changing a Republic [into a Democracy, then] into a Monarchy”.

                  “As Hamilton had at his service a newspaper – John Fenno’s Gazette of the United States – to support his policies, his opponents, led by Jefferson and Madison, decided to establish a rival newspaper, the National Gazette. Philip Freneau, an experienced journalist of known democratic leanings, was chosen to edit the paper. The editorial, reprinted here, is typical of those in which Freneau criticized the Hamiltonian program from 1791 to 1793.”

              New data: It’s “The Nazi Seizure of Power” by William Sheridan Allen. Copyright 1965, and out of print, but copies do show up on Amazon and evilBay. The town is fictionalized, I think to avoid any repercussions against the people he interviewed. Remember this was recent history in 1965, more recent than the Gulf War is for us. I witnessed Germans’ bitterness over WW2, and American occupation, when I was in Germany in 1990, so imagine what it was 25 years earlier.

              Anyway, a very, very interesting, closeup view of how Germany went from being the Germany of Bach, Beethoven and Brahms to the Germany of Gotterdammerung in five short years.

        Before everybody gets all wound up, do some comparisons.
        Square miles area. Population
        America……… 3,794,100…………………….. 316 million
        Ukraine…………233,062……………………….45.5 million

        I’m in the middle of this topic. It’s easy to see some goofy ideas like the fundamental change and crap like that. But this would be a monster project that would be way beyond their abilities. Personal, equipment, finance, here? Not a friggen chance. Look at Ukraine they tried it and lost it. They tried but now they have an arrest warrant out for the president for mass murder.
        I don’t know how well armed the Ukraine’s are but what ever they are they got the job done. (Going up against an AK with a rock in hand would spook the living shit out of me.) This line of thought is lofty and ludicrous.
        I’m not saying this wouldn’t be a good idea but nobody could possibly be this stupid. It would be nice to see the end of the progressive movement and it’s participants to disappear. Before I die and get off of this rock I’d like to see a full on reset here in the states. Back to some semblance of our past.

          What should bother the Ukrainians, is that they don’t really have a way to defend themselves from other, bigger predators like the EU, the USA and the NWO.

          The Ukraine trying to be on it’s own is about like California trying to be independent from the U.S. Does anyone really think the rest of the U.S. would allow California to declare itself independent and then start up it’s own trade agreements with China, or Cuba or whomever it wants?

          I’m in Oregon and I’d be pretty uncomfortable if California entered into NATO and started putting Chinese or other foreign military bases within its borders. What if it decided to put Israeli missiles up along it’s eastern borders?

          What might the outcome be today with it’s water shortage, if it declared itself sovereign? Could the U.S. withhold water from it? Would California have to adhere to ANY U.S. laws at all? NO.

          Neither California nor Ukraine has it’s own standing armies and it’s own weapons and munitions….and they’d be all that, right in our back yard…literally.

          Gotta agree on the reset thing. We have a group of people trying to force this country to go the progressive way. All of them, without exception, have not wanted for anything. They do not understand nor do they want to understand the reasoning for the laws and social norms older folks hold on to. Older people had to pay the price to set their social norms. The progressive loco’s are only acting for profit. The reset will enlighten the progressives.

        The problem with doing so is you cede the field to those willing to take it. I and a friend did an experiment in crowd control in the late ’60′s, taking over an SDS demonstration and inciting a riot. It was simple, since most people are sheep looking for their dog to lead them. I do not want to see the neocons taking charge anymore than Nazis (as in the Western Ukraine), or the Communists (essentially interchangeable with the neocons). You must have someone representing your interests, if you cannot do so yourself. The unmarried and those without children are the natural fighters you must prepare to support. Otherwise, if someone like myself decides to be a warlord, you might not like the policies I would choose to enact – especially if you are an Israel-firster.

            Even during the Rodney King problem the cops did not shot at the protesters. The people owning the stores did (GOD BLESS THEM)
            The poor guy that got drug out of his truck that had bricks thrown at him and was stomped on. Wished that the Cops would have open fire.

            Let me ask you if you had a 1911 45 in your hand and 4 guys had bricks in there hand and they had already thrown several you striking your car breaking out the windshield. The second volley hits you in the arms an legs. Now they are coming at you with more bricks. Now don’t forget you have a 1911 45 in your hand. WOULD YOU NOT FIRE ON THEM TO STOP THEM FROM CAUSING GREAT BODLEY HARM OR DEATH TO YOU?

            Cops don’t do this because they have orders not to. But they would be well with in their rights to do so!

                I pray that it never happens here.
                People need to understand that Police are human you hurt them they will hurt you back. Just like you, you have a right of self defense, so do the cops. He/she has no right just to shoot into a crowd, but if he is being STONED and can see who is stoning him to death he can drop them in his tracks. The same way you have the right to drop the bad guy with a brick, knife, bat, ECT. to protect yourself from GREAT BODLY HARM OR DEATH.

                  They all get time off with pay. This is done until the State Police and the State attorney, can do a full investigation into the shooting. It is also so you can get your head screwed on right. Because after a shooting you need to. You might know this if you ever has to shoot someone. State Trooper friend of mine was involved in a shooting it was on camera. It still took two weeks before he was able to go back to work.
                  99 out of 100 That’s not funny. You just made my point. 1 bad cop out 100. There are bad everywhere. 99 where justified shoots.
                  Again you can’t come up with Police just shooting into a crowd in the 45 years. It hasn’t happened!
                  Will it happen more than likely. TPTB will put armed people in a crowd of good folks standing up for their Rights to cause a False Flag. That is why they keep hyping all of the so call unlawful shooting.

In the last 100 years over 300 million people died from their own governments that were too civilized to do those kinds of things.

      Last night I started watching them and right off the bat was frustrated and felt like an idiot. They mention the fundamentals a lot, but to a guy who is green, their fundamentals are advanced to me. Many terms thrown around that are greek to me, like, scope shadow, load the bipod….WTF? The bipod isn’t shooting anything? Parallax, minute/moa/minute of angle, adn many others. It was also obvious that the guys being instructed by Todd the instructor, were already experienced.

      Any suggestions? I am about to put a personal ad online, maybe Craigslist looking for a veteran/sniper to spend time with me, even if I have to pay for it.

          Just settle those crosshairs down, let out a
          slow breath and slowly squeeze the trigger.
          1-2-3. It’s the same sequence whether you are

          and four legged kind. Not rocket science.

          Factory ammunition is just fine. If you can hit
          a target the size of a bucket (blue helmet) at
          any range you shoot at, they are in big trouble.
          A little bit of practice will make you a force
          to be reckoned with. These are the fundamentals
          my friend, anything beyond that is mostly just
          splitting hairs where battle is concerned.

He killed at least 100 big game animals with it and could shoot that thing like nobodies business. Open sights (buckhorn) and I witnessed him topple deer at unbelievable ranges. He came from the Snake River breaks where shooting across canyons in wide open spaces is/was the norm.

        Don’t make it harder then it is. It is a science, My suggestion would be to work with a DOPE book. Data Of Previous Engagmentes. Go on line you can order one or YouTube it and make your own. You can also get a ballistic cars for your set up. Lenght if barrle, caliber, weight of projectile and height of scope to barrle.
        The hard part may be finding a place to shoot with multiple know distance, say out to 600yrds. If you live close to Louisville, ky I can help with that. I recommend using Federal match 168gr for .308 and 75gr for 5.56, but I don’t know what the twist is on your barrle. I agree hand loading is great, but lets get you comfortable shooting first. With known distances you can start getting your DOPE and it will help you with range estimations. A range/ballistics card can get close. There good to have. Laser range finder is good as well.
        If this is helpful let me know and I will continue.

        • The 175 grain sierra match king is the best 1000 yard load for a 308 IF that particular rifle likes them. There are great scopes on the market with wind doping and bullet drop compensation and along with a good range finder makes shooting long distances a breeze compared to the days of Vietnam/WWII. Again, the shooting part is the easy side to being a sniper. I have taken many MANY large game animals and the adrenaline is something that is the most hard to tame. I could only imagine how the heart is going to be hammering after you have laid up for a week waiting for a target to appear and then all of a sudden THERE IT IS! Talk about shaking like a dog shitting peach pits. Go elk hunting.. After you take a couple of huge bulls without pissing yourself, then you are ready for the next step.

        • Thanks and yes.

          I am in the Eastern / Central Iowa area, just a bit north of the Quad Cities, in case anyone with real experience might be intetested in passing on their skills.

          My wife told me to not even bother posting this online with it being hard enough these days in our soceity to meet true blues and with all the OPSEC freaks. Which we usually get a kick out of since the biggest enenmy to freedom loving preppers is the govt and military and they already know where you are, what you do, what you have and what you WILL do.

          Think of it like this if OPSEC is so high on your list of priorities that it prevents you from doing things you would A. like to do B. know you should do
          Let’s say your pinned down and up a shit creek without a paddle….basically you’re screwed along with those depending on you. And along comes a person who wnated to learn things (anything, subject matter isn’t important) but that person could find no one wanting to invest the time in passing on skills and books and videos wasn’t within their learning style parameters. That person is now in some freedom / liberty loving patriot’s midst. They could of helped you, the patriot out, but can’t due to not haaving the skill.

          My point is that those with skills need to find others that want what they have (skill and knowledge)and team up……the bigger and better the team, the better chance of survival and of actually winning.

          Time to get real folks and quit dickin around.

          • My offer still stands, as I don’t think/care about OP SEC as you are correct, the gov knows I have guns and ammo b/c I BUY A HUNTING LICENSE every year. But I am not or have I never claimed to be a sniper, I am a seasoned big game hunter and have expressed on this board many times I pray daily I can make it through this life without ever having to drop the hammer on another human being. If you are serious about being a sniper (a person that hunts humans) then you need to look else where.

      • And if you are considering being a sniper, then here is something to chew on. The shooting is the easy part. If you are really serious then start training. Grab a 65 pound pack, head into the wilderness and start CRAWLING ALL DAY up mountains through creeks shitting and pissing in your pants and live on ants for 3 days. Learn to go 36 hours without sleep. Practice breathing under water through a reed. Live in the snow and then head for the desert and crawl through the cactus. Anyone can shoot 1000 yards off rock steady rests in a controlled environment with known ranges. You want to be a sniper, or just someone that can hit a game animal under most conditions? Because, if you are planning to lay for a one shot one kill on a high ranking official/general then you start back at the top of this post and get with it. Also make sure you are packing a 9 to 12 pound rifle as you crawl through the cactus.

          range and set him up on a ridge looking over an open field. I told him that I was going to plase a steel target up in the field and he would have range and take his shot 30 mins after I set it up. So I left him on the ridge and got in my truck and drove to town, ate at the Cracker Barrel, went to Walmart, etc. I came back to place the target in the field about 4hrs later, but I found the would be sniper sitting on the edge of the field confused and pissed.He faild the very basic part of being a sniper. I didn’t tell him when I would put the target up only that I was going to.

            • Socmarine and .02,

              If I could go back to 1990 and getting out of high school, I would change a few things and not of gotten in the trouble I did. Let’s just say that even a letter of recommendation from my brother, a USAF cadet graduated officer, no one would take me due to my record. At that time I wanted to go in, adn I wanted to try and get into sniper school or some form of special forces…..I couldn’t. Then as we all know, life just took it’s course adn I forgot about the things I wanted to learn when I was younger, yet had no one to teach me….outdoor things such as survival stuff, hunting and shooting, camping, fishing. I took a stupid path and can blame no one but me, just sayin that is how it went. Now I am 24 years older and not sure I would of still wanted to join the military, knowing now what I know about bankster controlled wars and propaganda……would hate having to live with that, if in fact I were still alive. Funny thing is I was never part of the military of the insidious LE gang of the USA and still faced death many times and was shot twice on two separate occasions…..LoL

              Now after my awakening in the beginning of 2011, and getting into prepping, it awakened all those old desires I had when I was young. To leanr to be an outdoorsman and to learn gubns and shooting. Whern I was a teenager, I got field and stream and dreamed of someday being a guide out West. So in a way both of you are right, yes it would be cool to of had the skills a sniper has. But at this point, I would be happy with half those skills and be able to know my gun, ammo, surviving in crazy conditions, living on next to nothing and shooting successfully at 1,000 yards….and getting out alive to make another successful 1,000 yard shot……need that elk for the freezer ;-)

The aggravating thing was to me that in years (a generation ago from that time) the military is where they sent you when you got into trouble….but not in 1990. I was young and dumb back then, too hot headed and drank/drugged. Now I am older, not super smart, but way smarter, a controlled temper (most the time)a saved by the blood Christian, a married man and a father of 7.

                BJ, you’ll be very lucky if you find a private farm that will allow a 1000 yd shot around there. As I recall, there are no ranges that have that distance. 50 yds is more like what you will find. It’s a start. You are very close to the Princeton gun range, a public range. Ask around to find where it is, it’s easy to find, right off 67, most gas station clerks probably know where it is. Go shoot there, spend some time there, talk to people, you’ll most likely find someone there who will guide you and you can relate with. It’s a popular and busy place. Plus, it’s free.

Wife thinks I am silly, get embarrassed too easy and worry too much about silly stuff. So walking up to a stranger and asking for help face to face showing what a idiot I am would be very difficult for me.

                  Then tell them what you got.
                  They will likely respond in a helpful way.
                  No need to ask for help or think you’ll come across as an idiot. Everyone was a beginner at some point.
                  Often there are very many helpful people there. That’s the way of an Iowan.

                  I understand the, “get embarrassed too easy and worry too much about silly stuff” don’t sweat it.
                  Just hang out there for a day (don’t even shoot, just hang… maybe collect some brass?) ain’t nobody there going to give you a hard time for asking questions. Well, except for the occasional asshole, but they are rare there. Surprisingly. Just brush them off like you would a woman with a bad attitude and move on to the next one.

                  One thing I thought of, you’re going to be sorely let down on hunting opportunities there, it ain’t nothing like Michigan. 1000 yd shooting is a very very rare thing in that state. If you go out in public lands during deer season you’ll probably bump into people. It’s a crowded affair. Your best bet is to find a farm. But I imagine you have intentions of hunting elsewhere?

                  There’s an NRA club 20+ miles further south in Bluegrass if you’d prefer that $.

                  There’s a gun show at the Mississippi River Valley fairgrounds the 7th through the 10th, you can ask them questions there.

                  Myself, I can’t stand the NRA, but YMMV.

                  I hope that helps. Maybe that whole ‘comes around, goes around’ will catch up to me now?

                  One other thing: follow the Wapsi. That’s about all there is there if you’re not a duck hunter or have access to a farm. My favorite years ago was North of 61, I think it was called, Badger Creek. Southwest of DeWitt. That’s as wild as it gets where you are. I imagine you’ll laugh compared to Michigan.

                  Yours in Liberty.

                  I know it is Princeton, but I got used to calling it Folletts, because so many around here do. Yeah I know the hunting here would suck. I am originally from Keokuk….down in the SE corner. And hunting down in the Tri State area is very good.

                  I don’t do gun shows anymore, at least for gun purchases due to them mot supporting the 2nd amendment. But I like them for accessories and ammo if the deal is a good one. As far as gun purchases, I only will do that in a true 2nd amendment way….cash for gun adn a smile….have a nice day :-) Armslist.com and gunlistings.org are good for this.

        BJ, ‘loading the bipod’ means to set the feet in the ground and let it take the weight of the rifle and the recoil. You want the rifle to essentially return to the aim point after round is fired. If you’re just resting the feet on the surface, it’s going to skitter around and your fire is not as controlled as it should be.

      For all the ‘democracy touting’ of the Jew-infested press, democracy hit the skids in Kiev this week with the illegal ouster of President Viktor Yanukovych and the installment of Oleksandr Turchynov as acting president.

      “There is no one to talk to there. It is an aberration to call legitimate what is the result of an armed mutiny,” said Russian prime minister Dmitri Medvedev.

      Tossing aside constitutional procedure, the parliament ousted democratically-elected Yanukovych, issued warrants for his arrest and members of his constitutionally-protected party, and installed former KGB head and Tymoshenko aide, Turchynov, as president.

      Ukraine is in constitutional limbo, the parliament operating lawlessly in the guise of law.

      Although Yanukovych did not return Ukraine to its 2004 Constitution, he did reinstate—with the approval of the Ukraine Constitutional Court—the 1996 Constitution in 2010 which provided greater presidential powers.

      Even Tymoshenko, Turchynov’s former boss, agreed with this while in prison.

      Therefore, the 1996/2010 Constitution is still in force, a legality the JewSA-owned parliament has deliberately bypassed, particularly when it came to the line of succession in appointing an acting president.

      Article 111, identical in both versions of the Constitution, states the parliament has the right to initiate a “procedure” of impeachment if “treason or another crime” is committed.

      It then outlines in clear wording specific due process steps to be employed by parliament when impeaching an incumbent.

      This includes the establishment of a “special investigatory commission whose composition includes a special procurator and special investigators.” Results from the investigation then go back to parliament for deliberation.

      THERE IS NO WAY Article 111 was followed in a couple of days in the actions of the opposition-controlled parliament. Where is the special investigation commission?

      The vote indicting Yanukovych for “mass murder” followed by a warrant for his arrest does not uphold any of the constitutional guidelines, particularly the call for a review of the investigative case by Ukraine’s Constitutional Court and a three-fourths majority vote by the parliament, i.e., 338 lawmakers.

      Both of these things HAVE TO HAPPEN in order to have a lawful impeachment.

      The Ukraine parliament spat on its own Constitution. And ‘democracy-loving’ Jews praise the parliament for it.

      Why not? Ukraine’s Jew-run National Bank is about to enslave its people to the Jew-owned IMF.

      At least for now, Kiev is a JewSA-owned, EU-backed, thugocracy after al

        I understand your sentiment completely, but surly you don’t sit around thinking all is well and this can continue forever? Every natural law known is being stretched or broken. Something will give at some point. There is no one here that can predict the when of it all, but most agree that some shit is going down in the near future. I see it as a patient with congestive heart failure. They are on meds and doing relatively well for a while. The meds are increased and the body undergoes compensatory changes to accommodate the weakening of the pump. This can go on for quite a while, but eventually your body hits the wall and you go into acute, overt failure. Extremely hard to predict exactly when the country’s heart will fail.

        I heard someone say that Ukraine has a mixed culture that is split between those that identify with Russia and those that identify as Ukrainian. That is probably oversimplifying it at best and at worst complete bullshit but hear me out on this. Imagine in the next generation with the millions of illegals here I can see there one day being a conflict with the illegals that scare nothing about American culture and want to turn our country into Mexico. No way in hell I will concede to that and I will gladly raise my gun before I would stand by and let that happen.

        It’s obviously coming soon. Currencies around the world are collapsing due to the monetary policies of the central banks. Ukraine, Argentina, and Venezuela have all had serious devaluations of their currencies. The dollar will die too.

        There are droughts and bad weather all over the world. 2014 could be a year when a lot of people starve or die of malnutrition because of food shortages and high food prices.

        Unfortunately, for some, the kids of all of the serious preppers will give their parents preps away when they die. Some people on this site can’t wait for it to collapse so they can justify spending all of their money on SHTF items.

        If it does happen most preppers will be in good shape for a little while at least, depending on how long the collapse is.

        However, the truth is probably in the middle. Power outages, hurricanes, and etc.. strike this country every year with millions without power for long periods of time. This will be the closest that most of us encounter.

        With that being said, prepping is more like having insurance. You may never have to file a claim, and you will be pissed you spent all of the thousands of dollars when you never needed it. But the saying still remains…. Better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.

        Me? I prep, but not to the extreme that some do. I don’t think i will need hundreds of thousands of rounds of ammo, but i do have hundreds. I don’t think i will need enough food stored away to feed a small city, but i’ll have enough to get my family and i through a lengthy rough patch.

        The thing that gives preppers a bad name are the bigots who try to use the “prepper network” as their sounding board to spew their racist views. Or those who blame one side of the political party over the other, when their all in bed with each other. Or the ones you hear on here with strong conviction that it’s going to happen tomorrow, or next week.

        Hearing the same doom and gloom for the last 40 years will have a lot of people lose interest, but it doesnt necessarily mean it wont happen.

        I know, I know, you’re going to say: “well look at the things that are going on today” “the writing is on the wall”. Well, the writing has been on the wall for a very long time. After the Civil war, the sentiment that this nation wouldnt last has ran rampant. Nevertheless, this great country that has become a melting pot has seemed to withstand and stay on top from a military stand point. Might makes right. Everyone’s probably seen the “Newsroom America is not the greatest” youtube clip, so America isnt winning gold in alot of categories, but we’re still a powerhouse.

        I truly believe no matter what happens, the biggest threat will come from within than from other countries invading and/or occupying. The government sees this, which is why the DHS are making counter measures.

        Will the collapse happen? I have no idea, but i’m going to continue prepping as well as enjoying the freedom that i have. Because if the SHTF, say goodbye to a trip to the park with the family, or going to the beach and dipping your feet in the water. Enjoy life today, so if it does hit the fan, you can at least say i had a good balance of enjoying life and prepping as well.

        Basically, all of your eggs in either basket is not necessarily a good thing.

      It won’t happen just yet. Not until average folks are ripped out from their bubble of comfort and complacency. Cable TV, full shelves at the grocery store, ebt and atm still working. Once those begin to be un reliable and folks get uncomfortable, then you will see people get motivated to do something. But the folks in charge are doing a great job of letting us down real slow. People get accustomed to minor changes easily, and they accept it. It would take a major event to wake people up.

        Were living in shitty times. I know its been said in most generations but it dont take much smarts to look at the real numbers that give the signals to the truth about our economy and the global economy. The most probable crisis is the failed economy and how its been affecting our country. But the WORST crisis is the loss of our Constitutional rights from the loss of our free speech and right to our religious beliefs to the loss of legit representation in our govt system.

        • Agree 1000% Cal the current generation is going to have it worse than the last one and this is a first since the great depression. As resources continue to dwindle, (especially clean water) each corresponding generation from here on down to rock bottom is going to have a higher misery index than the last until humans re-balance with what is left of our stripped mined/polluted destroyed planet. The party is indeed over. Only misery remains.

      In Mexico in the early 1920′s the Government was taken over by radical Socialists. Like Lenin in the USSR their leader Pres. Plutartco Calles attempted to outlaw the Christian faith.
      At first the Christians did nonviolent resistance, until the Mexico’s Federal Government started to hang Priests, rape and murder Nuns, and burn churches.

      A Defensive Force of 20,000 armed Christians was formed and fought the Federals to a standstill. There were an estimated 90,000 deaths from this rebellion. This was the largest rebellion in Mexican history!

    34. “Occupy American Spring” may be the time when the couch potatoes watch MSM see decent Americans beaten to death during their protest in D.C. come May 16th.

      I don’t have an affiliation with the event, but I’m retired and tempted to go and be in the trenches (finally) for the first time against USG tyranny.

      Anyone care to join me? I have a van & ready to go. It’s my same van I used last year on my Walk Across America in “Support the U.S. Constitution”.

      http://www.WalkDaddyWalk.com

      I see lots of talk on this blog, but I, and another veteran did the talk & then did the walk. Let’s do it. I have space for 3 people.

    35. I am not affiliated with the “Occupy American Spring” that is to happen in D.C. on May 16th, but I am ready to go & participate.

      We can all do the talk here, but how many are ready to do the walk?

      I have a van that I’ll be driving that can load up 3 more people. Let me know if you are ready to go & become a part of American history.

      Hi,
      I’m from Brazil.
      I wrote a book showing some mistakes of the current economic principles. The current models do not see the entire system. This is causing all the troubles. I talked about how they move wealth from middle class to high people and companies and think this is the correct way.
      There are many mistakes about that.
      I tried to show the way to solve this trouble. The solution is not easy and it’s attached to the whole process and not to its parts like middle class and companies.
      I used many examples to show how these things work.
      I think you’ll appreciate this new point o view.
      The book is at Amazon at the address:

      Folks everything that is going on is just like Russia in the 80′s. You have to remember that line from Outlaw Josey Whales when the old lady at the ferry crossing says ” all that big talk don’t mean doodly ” Just keep that line in mind, as all the happy talk hits you in the face. Things are not what they seem to be, just like Russia in the 80′s. Unemployment numbers are manipulated, inflation rates are manipulated, profit statements are manipulated, and on and on. All to keep us calm. It won’t work for much longer. Trust your gut, and you will know when to take action….

      It won’t happen in the US and I shall give you my reasons:

      1) The state apparatus in the US is too sophisticated, full spectrum and nimble to lose control like the Ukrainian government did. Ignore the politicians (who do not really run things), it is the guys behind the scenes that do and they are no slouches.

      2) Big Data: The US is the world leader in this and can process unrest data at a furious pace, getting on top of things faster than dissidents can stir things up.

      3) Social structure: It is true vicious rioting can occur in the ‘Bro Zones’ of inner urban areas, but who cares? These places are economic dead zones anyway and it is akin to burning down some forest to contain the forest fire. So, yeah, go ahead and burn down the payday loan shop, the liquor store, the lotto seller, etc. These places are not central to the world economy.

      4) Smack down: Look at how easy it was to vilify and isolate the Occupy movement. Yes, there are some hard asses out there with no future who are very violent and either have to be killed or incarcerated, but most people are sissy: just tell them they will get a black mark at work or fired for participating in a demo, and they will come in line. It will be easy to control the prosperous areas by just telling people they need the state to protect them from the ‘bad people’ who are rioting. Women are especially easy to control and will effectively keep the men in line.

      5) Technological supremacy: The US has the most sophisticated weaponry and surveillance technology to track and suppress unrest. It was all beta tested in Iraq and that sh#t works. Having a hunting rifle won’t do you much good against a Hellfire missile.

      • If by chance it is a national wave of discontent, nothing will stop it. If we reach that tip point even the best system will fail. No matter the failsafes in place. I have been places that would make most people freak out, that would make all the hair on your neck stand up. What comes deserves respectful fear.

        Three maybe just only two strategically placed high altitude EMP’s will wipe all that out in less then a second fired from offshore ships. Then the ships would be timed to blowthemses to kingdom come to decontaminate evidence.

        The power grid of the entire USA and parts of Southern Canada and northern Mexico will be fried beyond repair. Every single transformer will have to be replaced and we get most of our power equipment from guess where? China!!!

        Wew only have small supplies for storms.

        Even just ONE well placed EMP on the East Coast will make Hurricane Andrew and Issac COMBINED look like a walk thru the park.

        We will be propelled back to the 1800s with today’s population to feed and most farmers rely on heavy machinery to deliver their goods and there won’t be any goods trains operating though steam locomotives from heritage railways would still operate!

        There are groups scattered that have and are restoring old steam locos which we could use to deliver goods and passengers if society remains intact long enough to come up with creative plans.

      Best we can hope for is the urban youths riot, start to burn the cities, then DHS has to go into the streets and fight them. We can stand back and watch while they destroy each other. That would be great (but I ain’t holding my breath)

        I agree: we need to see those ‘hoods go all smokey and sh#t. Would do everyone a big favor. The best we can wish for is the underclass rises up, gets just close enough to where the real wealthy people live with the powerful connections, and then the order goes down the pipe to get the live rounds out. Then just sing the song ‘Let it Be’.

        My advice? Stay out of it and let the state take the heat and have to deal with the rampaging scum-hordes.

    45. We are at a point in time where we have the cure to cancer, cure for diabetes and most other diseases. we have a free alternative energy, we have access to pure food as we did 1000′s of years ago. By utilizing these cures this would allow everyone on the planet to an average age of 100-125. Is it safe to introduce them. What would happen with the economy, who would take care of your great great grandparents. The health industry is about 30% of the workforce. we would only need one hospital per large city just for accidents.
      The list goes on for the energy sector. Who has the solution to a new world economy. How can social security pay for everyone to the age of 110. it cant be done. Social security was based on people living an average of 10 years. So do we change social security age to 85?

      Also becareful of *wag the dog* tactics. One major tactic is for them to WANT people to rebel because then that will give an excuse to declare Martial Law.

      If Obama declares Martial Law and there is no rebellion going on that will make it easier to remove that scumbag from office using proper laws and most of all you’re mind.

      The shadow forces WANT an extremely violent revolution and are hoping it will be emotionally driven so people won’t think and panic instead.

      Hence why so many violent video games since the *Bush Era* and articles that say that violent video games aren’t healthy are being poo pooed on so that people in this generation will be subtly trained to react to their lower self.

      They want blood and since the previous false flag terrorist attacks failed to get the blind panic they wanted then this is their next big thing.

      Does this reek Cold War all over again? Remember when students were taught to hide under their desks as if that would protect them?
