    These Are Not the Normal Activities of a Government Planning for Peace and Stability

    Something is amiss. Most Americans know this – they can feel it deep down inside – even if they don’t know what it is, things just don’t seem right.

    The signs are everywhere. The headlines are true.

    The global economy is faltering. The United States has become wholly dependent on the Federal Reserve injecting nearly $1 trillion dollars a year into financial markets and the U.S. government just to stay afloat. Over one hundred million Americans are living in poverty and dependent on government disbursements just to make ends meet.

    Across the world the cold war between the U.S., Russia, China and regions in the middle east is heating up. Just last month our President brought the entire planet to the very brink of what could have easily devolved into conflict on such a scale that even global leaders were suggesting that World War III was imminent. War mongers in Congress were so adamant about launching a middle east strike on Syria that one of them even suggested a nuclear weapon could be detonated over South Carolina if we failed to act.

    On the domestic front, homeland security preparations and exercises have accelerated to the point that the government has now said that a cyber attack capable of taking down the national power grid is a 100% certainty. They’ve stocked tens of millions of emergency ration and supplies, and nearly 2 billion rounds of ammunition. They’ve trained for the last decade for scenarios that include economic collapse and the subsequent civil unrest that would follow.

    These are not the normal activities of a government planning for peace and stability.

    In the following interview with SGT Report, Dave Hodges of The Common Sense Show connects the dots in a way that will leave most of our countrymen stunned.

    There’s a plan in place and it involves political leaders, business conglomerates, the military industrial complex and a massive global agenda. And one day soon that plan will be executed. Once that day comes, look out, because everything you’ve ever imagined going wrong will, and the world will delve into one of its darkest periods in history.

    “Anything is possible. I wouldn’t put anything past them,” notes Sean of SGT Report.

    Indeed.

    Pay attention to this amazingly insightful interview, because it details how the elite think, what their priorities are, and how far they are willing to go to accomplish their goals.

    What are they preparing for?

    Look at what’s going on today with regard to DHS and FEMA. There are no less than eight disaster drills planned between the period of time which started September 25th and goes through November 13th. 

    I suspect within one of these drills we will see a false flag drill, because it follows the old familiar pattern of having a drill and then having the event within the drill – 9/11, the 7/7 bombings, the Boston Marathon bombing, and so forth. 

    So, this is what I think is coming guys. I don’t think we’re going to wait long to see some dramatic shifts in our country.

    (Watch at Youtube)

    There is a collapse that is coming.

    The banks have been preparing for it for over a year now, and I go back to last year when the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that when you deposit your money in the bank that money belongs to the bank and they may do with it what they will.

    An then you move forward and start looking at the Bank of International Settlements [the central bank of central banks] in which they most recently told the central banks around the world basically to stop loaning. They want to cut the amount of money in circulation dramatically.

    If I was running a bank, and I knew a collapse was coming, I would want to gather all my nuts for the winter and store them, and I wouldn’t want them outside of my confines.

    Well, that’s exactly what the banks are doing… The banks are gearing up for the collapse.

    I really expect that, if this grid drill doesn’t attract more attention than it is currently receiving, this will be the false flag. But we have other possibilities.

    In October… there’s a cyber attack drill involving 1000 banks… Well there’s another opportunity to take it down.

    But my favorite here would be the Grid-X drill… This has to do with Syria and Iran. The globalists that support the Petro dollar need to make Iran stop selling their oil for gold to China, Russia and India; and now Brazil is threatening to get into this game, too.

    The Petro dollar will crash. Now, the globalists are going to crash the Petro dollar and the Federal Reserve note at some point. But they want to do it at a time of their choosing.

    Obama is under extreme pressure to get this war started in the middle east. This is why I believe in the month of May the globalist corporate controlled central media essentially ran five Watergate type scandals on Obama in a ten day period. That was orchestrated to get him off dead-center. He wasn’t able to get the job done.

    So, they may be saying, maybe we can’t save the Petro dollar, so let’s go ahead and collapse the whole thing.

    Let’s go forward to the Grid-X drill and see how this ties in… If you take down the power, by the third day people are going to be rioting in the streets, there going to have no food, and it’s going to be absolute and total chaos.

    Within that false flag event could lie another one.

    The globalists may have made the decision to collapse the economy at that point by taking down the banks.

    And who’s going to be caring about how many digits are on your computerized bank account on the third day of a black out if you do not have food on the table?

    This… is a likely possibility if Obama is not able to break the quagmire and attack Syria.

    The difference with what will happen with the grid if they turn this into a false flag event and these isolated events like Hurricane Sandy, is the fact that there was still outside help being rendered.

    If we have the entire grid go down across the country the cavalry will not come, there’s no 9-1-1- to call, the police will not respond, people are totally on their own.

    As noted in the interview by SGT Report:

    All of these things that we’re seeing in Cyprus, in Panama, in Greece… These things are essentially the model for what I think will eventually come here to our own shores. That’s why we want to rattle the cage and we want to inform as many people as we can about tangible assets, hard assets.

    Hard assets. Those are the only things you’ll be able to depend on if the grid goes down, or if your bank collapses, or if the government rolls tanks down your neighborhood street.

    You’ll need stores of food and access to water. You’ll need firearms and ammunition to defend yourself. You’ll need gold and silver as a medium of exchange. And you’ll need barterable goods and trade skills.

    If you haven’t done so already, prepare a contingency plan for a long-term event that essentially destroys the life you have come to know in the consumer society.

    How likely is it that such events will come to pass? Every century we’ve seen widespread war, famine, and destruction. Thus, the odds are pretty good we’re going to see it again in our lifetimes.

    Give yourself and your family a fighting chance and prepare for the worst.

      Dave Hodges tends to sensationalize his articles, but the sheer amount of drills is truly disturbing…

      • Be informed says:

        I say it doesn’t matter whom is correct about what is going on. Be it Dave Hodges or someone else, bad intentions are quite apparent from a government that has gone into high gear towards tyranny. I look at the extreme geophysical world, and it might just be that the government is preparing for a huge event or many huge events. Remember everyone, that Alaska and the Pacific Northwest is in the hot zone for earthquakes until Oct.17. Already two of the areas mentioned have had major earthquakes, Kamchatka Peninsula a couple of hours ago, and far north New Zealand also 6.7. A third major shaker is quite likely.

          BI, thanks again for keeping up with this for us. Your knowledge, and the time you spend gathering and relaying the information, is genuinely appreciated.
          Yes, it’s obvious that our government is hell-bent on reaching absolute totalitarianism. Lately, I’ve found myself edging closer and closer to the point of despair. All the news seems to be bad. And, between scrapping for the almighty federal reserve note to keep the bills paid, trying to keep a rookie from tossing us and the rig into the ditch, and dealing with the usual thousand urgent things at home, I get overwhelmed.
          But I’m not giving up. I take a breather now and then. Laugh at myself and the crazy events of life as often as possible. And (quietly) keep prepping. One more box of band-aids… one more pack of wicks for the oil lamps… one more old hand tool…
          And. I’ll be damned if I’ll let the SOBs in the new world order get me down. I’m gonna keep living, and laughing, and loving my family and friends till the very end. And when that dark night finally approaches…
          I ain’t going down without a fight!

            Okie, I don’t post much but just wanted to say that when you’re feeling down at times, know there are those be it a block or a thousand miles away that feel the same. Don’t know you from Adam but dammit, keep that strong backbone and keep stocking up..

            When that despair kicks in a bit, just remember others feel the same or stronger about the goings on of this once great country. Everything for a reason and stocking up and sharing information with like minded folk just feels like the right thing to do when when we’re confronted with these obvious challenges ahead.

            Good day, sir!

                Wombat, Was thinking the same thing. And with all those other .gov agencies getting their very own SWAT team – Seems to be THE latest, coolest fashion trend- a percentage of that, guns, ammo and military gear is bound to turn up “lost”, “missing” or “Gee, I have no idea where it is or what happened to it”. Somebody is bound to get their Christmas wish a little early. Karma meet bitch.

                • Gods Creation says:

                  If the entire grid goes down, the banksters have effectively killed the goose that lays their golden eggs. They need a lot of extreme drills to keep those who know the false flag truth focused on the worst case while they continue to chip away. If they get you to expect grid down, the lesser false flag will not be so alarming and you may even be thankful that was all that happened.

                  I suspect that even much of the brainwashed military will return to their family home if the entire grid fails, with or without permission, to take care of their own families. The people may lose electrical power for a while, but the banksters would likely lose power permanently.

                  The police and other thug enforcers will be without the communication they need to enforce the tyranny as they do now.

                  Freedom will get a second chance, complete with all of it’s difficulties and hardships. Those who are prepared for freedom will thrive. Those who are dependent will die, or adapt.

                  The key for the people is that if they do take down the grid, is to not allow them to rebuild the tyrannical corp that has been destroyed by it, but to start anew and rebuild the vision set forth in the Constitution.

                  When the major false flag does happen, it is window of opportunity for the People to take back control. The United States will likely die, but freedom will live if that is truly what the people want. For a time, there will be no one to stop them.

                People we have to keep in mind that they don’t surround us….”We” surround them. That’s why they’re scared. When the SHTF, people will band together, at least some of them will in the beginning, and they will take the fight to them. Others will then follow and it will be like a tidal wave crashing over them. They are afraid; that’s why they’re hoarding ammo and food and supplies. This country was founded on people throwing off the shackles of a tyrannical government and if they move on us, we will reset the government of this nation. It will not be pain free and without loss, but the tree of liberty needs to be refreshed from time to time with the blood of Tyrants and Patriots!

              Silver Lodge, Just adding my ditto to your comments. It does seem so overwhelming, with what the evil PTB and the .govs are doing that it does seem as if the die has been cast; the bad guys will win. Despair? Nah, not an option. Go and read the Old Testament book of Habakkuk. It will take less than 10min to read, only 4 chapters. Bottom line: Yes God does have the situation under control, and the guilty will be punished for their evil deeds.

                The lesson of Habukkuk is that God will punish a wicked nation by using people more evil than they are. America will likely lose 90% of its population after the collapse.

                God is about to turn the world over to the antichrist. We’re going to see a one-world government in the next couple of years.

              • Thanks for making reference to Scripture. There is so much fear coming across the internet that takes away the common sense that God has given His people. People in this nation have deserted the God of their forefathers and chosen to satisfy their own material lusts. God told Jeremiah, after a number of rejections by His people to stop praying for them. He said when His wrath is poured out dead bodies will line the earth. He also uses His people in that too, but, He Himself, is going to correct problems(I will destroy those who destroy the earth-Revelations). I seem to see more people referencing God as being our protector(91st Psalm) and also Psalm 37. The psalms are loaded with prayers against the enemies of God’s people. His people need to refresh themselves by reading the psalms, especially David’s as He called upon God to destroy his enemies. He said “do I not hate those who hate thee?(my translation. When the smoke clears it will be a new world order, alright, but, not the ones the enemies of God are plotting for.
                Put your faith in what He has said thousands of years ago. It was true then, is true now, and will be true in the future.
                I believe we should store up those things which will be needed(Joseph commanded the people to do that). When push came to shove and the people were going hungry he rationed it out. AND, when all was said and done, Joseph and the then Pharoah owned all the land and everything else the people had because they gave it to him in order not to starve. Have hope! Trust in what He has said.

            Be informed

            This is becoming the scenario you have so often
            painted with your broad calculating brush.

            With the dark of the moon, and the Israeli dogs
            of war champing at the bit to be let loose, and
            now Obama desperately needing a diversion from the
            suppressing events taking place as we speak, I
            could easily envision the green light being given
            the Mossad to let ‘er rip at Syria or Iran.

            We would, of course, then have to follow our “staunch
            ally” to aid and abet their little sortie. This
            would, without a doubt, be just the elixir Obama
            needs, ala FDR, to put a freeze on everything that’s
            hitting the skids for his administration.

            This is only a gut feeling I have, but history does
            rhyme.

You guys have minds which are closed to understanding, instead, you prefer to hate and accuse. IMO, the coming collapse will be so bad that in order to survive, a man must be willing to build bridges and establish good relationships. You’ve proven that this is beyond your capabilities.

They never should have given ANY land inside of Israel to their enemies. There’s a time coming soon when God himself will protect Israel supernaturally. Just check out Ezekiel 38 and 39.

                  Like it or not, take it or leave it, the Jews are God’s chosen people. Bless them and your blessings will return to you many fold, curse them and the curses will return to you many fold. They have been judged severely down through history and until the return of the Messiah, the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, they will continue to be judged severely. Judge not that you be not judged. Let God sort it out. Only He has the wisdom to judge such things. For better or worse, Granny, I am a red thumber on this one and will stand with Israel.

                  “God’s CHOSEN People”?

                  I thought we were ALL His people, ALL sprung from the same two parents? Now I’m supposed to believe that God plays favorites, and that Israel can do whatever it wants to, to others, just because God loves them more than me?

                  BS.

                  If that was true, why would the rest of us want to follow a faith like that, where we’re all basically just second class followers, who will NEVER be loved by the Father because we weren’t born in Israel?

                  “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”.—KJV

                  …it doesn’t say “For God so loved ISRAEL…”

                  I believe John 3:16 as well but that does not negate the fact that the Jews are God’s chosen people. They have been designated to carry out a very special mission. There may not be much of them left by the end but they have been chosen. They too are called to uphold a certain standard and when they fail, they fail, but, there will be a remnant who will welcome the Messiah when he comes to reign out of Israel as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

                  Just because they are God’s chosen people does not mean that you are worth less. You have the privilege to become God’s children and can address God as “Our Father, who art in heaven…” and become a part of God’s kingdom if you so choose. God is not finished with the Jews or with Israel and He who is Faithful will not abandon them no matter what.

                  There is much to be learned from the Old Testament and from God’s Chosen People. The New Testament and the entry of Grace and Salvation for all of humanity is a sea-change in the events of human kind but was predicted in the Old Testament. It is helpful to understand the Law and condemnation that came from the Law to fully understand and appreciate Grace, Hope and Salvation that comes from the death, burial, and resurrection of God’s only Son.

                  The choice is yours/ours whether to accept John 3:16 and that which comes before it and after it. It has changed my life for eternity. You are my brothers and sisters. God does not have grandchildren! Every generation must make their own choice.

                  Forgive me if I have offended anyone but this is my understanding based on my reading from the Old Testament and the New Testament. There are many vessels in a house and everyone of them has a purpose, some for honor and some for dishonor (spittoon, honey-pot). Nothing makes sense if you leave the Jews and Israel out of the picture; the puzzle cannot be completed without them. Everyone has a role in the Grand Scheme of God’s plans for humanity. In God’s Kingdom, there is no second class citizen.

                  Hi Sixpack, I agree and there was no ‘reply’ button for my answer to Barn Cat for the red mark I gave his rave, nor the apologia for only being able to leave one, but my point would be the Israelis are the “chosen” people by their God. It’s their God that chose them. Convenient isn’t it? That doesn’t mean its THE God.

                  THE God might wipe them away like a salty tear. Their God hasn’t done them many favors through the century and certainly hasn’t done the Earth and its indigenous people any favors. There is a very good chance, and a logical case to be made, that Yahweh is a false God, an evil entity who has trapped this planet, lifted up his minions into powerful positions where they can do great harm, turned his eye on evil while he encourages it in his believers, and basically his whole existence is to block out the better spiritual natures of people.

                  Yahweh and the Jesus myth is a giant well engineered soul suck, and has basically led us to this point of despair, but the truth of these matters would collapse society, and luckily society under the 1% is helpful to all, strong and sound as a dollar, and powerful thanks to him giving us weapons… whoops my sarcasm lock is stuck…

                  Comment ID: 2523077
                  October 2, 2013 at 4:11 pm “Where in the entire bible does it state “Bless the jews”? The very word Jew is not even mentioned for almost 500 pages untill 2nd book of Kings chapter 16!” Can we agree to respectfully disagree for now? I am not sure that this is the forum for this theological discussion. I appreciate all the scripture quotations and I will plan to review them. The geneology of Jesus was traced several times in the Gospels to help establish him as a Jew, a decendant of Judah, the son of Jacob/Israel, the son of Isaac and the son of Abraham. For goodness sake, Jesus was a Jew and so were all of the early disciples. Because of man’s stubborness it took a while for the early disciples to understand that the Gospel was meant for the whole world but eventually this messge came through and the Church literally spread to the whole world. I do not worship the Jews but I do worship the Son of God who came as a Jew. I do believe that there are two parallel covenants that eventually merge. God’s promises to the Jews still hold true and are valid unlike our government’s promissary notes. Thank you for your admonitions and concerns. May the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the God Jesus taught us to call our Father, richly bless you and keep you and yours in the hard times ahead. Brother, we will need all the help we can get. God is only a prayer away!

                  Where in the entire bible does it state “Bless the jews”? The very word Jew is not even mentioned for almost 500 pages untill 2nd book of Kings chapter 16!

                  God did bless the 12 tribes of orig israel. And since then God made a New covenant with a different peoples…Christians.

                  Jesus said “I was Sent ONLY to the Lost sheep of the House of Israel” now Why would Jesus even say that if all the jews surrounding Him Then were that lost sheep of house of israel? Because them jews werent!

                  Thats the main problem when you fall for Judiazer pastors teachings as the new testement warns NOT to do! All they preach is Old testement bless jews BS! When nowheres did any verse ever say bless jews. Galatians Explains WHO God meant when God told Abraham His “seed” will be blessed..It meant Jesus as That “seed” and other promices like that meant Christians get blessed as it Says in GALATIANS book new testement. READ THAT! see how You were so Fooled to believe bless jews is for real.

                  You foolish old testement jew worshippers and those who believe todays preachers Faslehoods need to READ Galatians in new testement.

                  As well as Many more verses Jesus and the Apostles wrote and said regards to “jews”. Stop belife in falshoods and Imposter jews as jesus called them in rev 2:9.

                  There are a few websites that do teach truth on this issue.

                  Who do you think Jesus Cursed when he passed that Tree and cursed it and it instantly withered and Died for not producing any fruit?…That represents Jews!

                  Who do you think He spoke of when He said “The Kingdom shall be TAKEN from YOU and Given to Another”?

                  Taken from YOU=jews Given to Another=Christians.

                  Who did John say are antichrists? ALL who refuse to admit or say that Jesus Christ IS God in the flesh etc…

                  Who is That refering to?…Jews who still after 2000 yrs Deny Christ with a passionate Hatered unlike any other Hate!

                  And You foolishly worship jews and all issues jewish?

                  Maybe if you think you are christian? A good thing to READ Is the New testement Gospels of christianity.

                  Start with REV 2:9 and JOHN 8:44 to see who really those jews are! Then tell pastor John Hagee to take a Hike!

                  Laeagle: you tell me this is Not the right forum to discuss it. Then go on with all You want me to believe based on Your still Faulty reasonings?..In other words This forum is Only proper for YOUR interpretations and Long rant eh?

                  Your stated idea of the Two covenants shows where you go OFF track and get the rest wrong.

                  They are NOT like two parellel Lanes of a one way road, that somehwere down the line Merge into one single lane.

                  The Old vs new covenant are explained in the new covenant/new testement. It specifically says REPLACED the Old as the old covenant made with ALL 12 Israel Tribes. Not just Judah, NOT made with or for “jews”. All 12 tribes Equally. It was an abject Failure as Jeramiah states. There God tells the Prophet Jeramiah to go Tell the jews of judah(the 10 northern tribes that KEPT the name israel were already dispersed and taken captive by Asyrians king etc)God tells jeramiah go tell tribe of judah”jews” that They are NO longer My(gods) people and I(god) am NO longer Their(jews) God. And that is Their fault as They, jews, disobeyed me, God, one too many times and continued to REJECT OUR covenant They agreed to at Sanani with Moses teir Leader etc.

                  Jeramiah also tells them a NEW plan, aka Covenant will be comming. That IS Christianity. Open to jews AND All gentile Others also. Jews rejected That also, still do mostly. There is NO other salvation plans. Yes many pastors Today teach that “jews get a special free pass cause jews are chozens etc”…Thats a bald face LIE.

                  Christ Himself says so!(no other Name given but His etc etc)

                  Much in the Old testement that “Was” orig predicted to yet occure in future or end times etc…DEPENDED Upon Israels 12 tribes Obedience to God and their covenant.

                  Like jeramaih says They Failed. It got replaced by a New covenant. Therefore some maybe alot of future events originally spoken in the Old testement were Replaced by a newer Plan. Same as a re finance mortgage loan. The new contract is the only one that now counts. Whatever That says is what it is Now.(for some odd reason mant pastors today do not believe that God Can also Change His mind and Plans etc..Nonsense! God Did change plans due to Mans failures etc. example: Adam “was” supposed to Live forever right. Adam later Died right. Because God warned adam, adam Failed to Obey, Gods orig plan for adam to live forever changed adam died. Jews disobeyed more times than you can count!)

                  Thats why we have Jesus in several places and an entire Book of Revelation that describes future end days etc.

                  Some of that new book rev is Different than orig OT prophecys. Both cannot happen if different. Right so it has to be the Final or Last books that will happen.

                  But many christians today have bought into the widely Popular pastors like john jagee and pat robertson and a slew of others versions. And All of their every versions twists every verse the word “jew” or “Isrel” can be found, into “Bless Jews” “Bless israel” and they teach it as If israel the “State” land, is to be Blessed.

                  Whenever Israel is mentioned in such a way, it either means Jacob the Individual man whos name changed to Israel, or means ALL 12 tribes…

                  UNTILL, Solomon(?) died and His very Young son became King of all 12 tribes…BUT..He increased Both Taxes and Work Loads twice/three times as Bad as prior and thats when the 10-Northern tribes SPLIT apart, which Later in bible God says thats was His doing that caused a split into TWO seperate Nations, with Two seperate Kings etc.

                  Ever since That split Judah, with, benjamin and aprox 1/2 the levi priests, were called “Kingdom of South, Judah”

                  So once they Split into Two nations “Most” places the word “Israel” is wrote Means Those 10 NORTH tribes and NOT Judah’s ‘jews”

                  Jesus was a Nazerene as were All 12 apostles. None lived in jeruselem or practiced the Pharisee Rabbis form of False religious beliefs called today Tamludic Judaisim.
                  (and Jesus Left jeruselem due to Fear of the Jews! and did NOT go there anymore.)

                  The orig torrah Moses 5 books is what Jesus and apostels did believe and practice. Christ Condemnd that “Talmudic” practice he called Doctrines and traditions of Men, that twist the words of God so badly that they Lose all form of right proper meaning etc.

                  I think all christians who have been taught so many falsehoods like hagee et al teach today should reject whatever that was and start FRESH and BEGIN Only with the New testement at first. That IS the new covenant, it did Replace the Old one, and as the bible states It is a Permant never be again replaced Covenant.

                  The “jews” as most call them today even though 98% are Khazars, and their talmudic practice that Jesus calls the Synagogue of Satan, have No pact or covenant. They Can convert to be a christian as all others also can.

                  And what I say or write has zero to do with any anti jew agenda or whatever some claim or call me names over. I am simply repeating whats already IN the bible so if they want to call one a racist or antisemite(define semite as khazars, todays jews are Not decended from Seth, but from Japeth aka sons of Noah, 3rd son was Ham).

                  They should call the originator of the words I quote and write from the bible an antisemite not Me!

                  Or when I post a quote spoken BY a jew rabbi etc whos the antisemite? me? why cause I wrote what a jew rabi first said? Then call HIM such vile names not me!

                  Its just more BS due to the last 100 yrs of falsehoods from phony pastors who wouldn’t recognize Truth if it was a Great white Shark and Bit their Ass with truth!

                  Laeagle, Re read your bible, compare Galatians verses that state Us christians Are the future reciepients Of All the Promiced BLESSINGS God made to Abraham etc.

                  If you are a christian, then the new testement covenant of christianity Is what You have and believe right?

                  And if they so desire blessings too? Jews as they are today called are welcomed by me.us.others and Christ(whom they caused to be Murdered) to Repent, and convert to be a christian also. Thats the ONLY method for blessings and salvation Left and Thats a Permamant Covenant for ALL time. Your BIBLE says so. I am only repeating it here as I do believe it.

                  All Jew blessers and worshippers of jews READ CLOSELY!

                  NOTE: This info Is from Jewish scientists etc!

                  Because of DNA science, historians and anthropologists have been able to find missing links and to unravel the mysteries of race and ethnology.

                  In 2001, Dr. Ariella Oppenheim, of Hebrew University, a biologist, published the first extensive study of DNA and the origin of the Jews. Her research found that virtually all the Jews came from Khazar blood. Not only that but Oppenheim discovered that the Palestinians—the very people whom the Jews had been persecuting and ejecting from Israel’s land since 1948—had more Israelite blood than did the Jews. In sum, the vast majority of the Jews were not Jews; some of the Palestinians were. Some of the Palestinians even had a DNA chromosome which established that they were “Cohens”—workers at the ancient Temple and synagogues of the Jews. (there are several Hundred Christian Palestinians there today, also Persecuted by Israeli “jews”! Did Your Pastor teach you That yet? why Not? is he a Wolf in sheeps clothes false prophet perhaps?)

                  The Definitive DNA Study–READ VERY Closely! TRUTH!

                  Now comes the ultimate, definitive DNA study, by Dr. Eran Elhaik and associates at the McKusick-Nathans Institute of Genetic Medicine, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Entitled, The Missing Link of Jewish European Ancestry: Contrasting the Rhineland and the Khazarian Hypotheses, and published by the Oxford Journal on behalf of the Society for Molecular Biology and Evolution, the study confirms Oppenheim’s research and the many scholarly books.(Confirms Means Fact-Truth-undeniable!)

                  Dr. Elhaik and the prestigious Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine conclude in their report: “The Khazarian Hypothesis suggests that Eastern European Jews descended from the Khazars, an amalgam of Turkic clans that settled the Caucasus in the early centuries CE and Converted to Judaism in the eighth century…Following the collapse of their empire, the Judeo-Khazars fled to Eastern Europe. The rise of European Jewry is therefore explained by the contribution of the Judeo-Khazars.

                  (Khazar Turk, Turk are from Edom aka edomites! Edmoites are from ESAU, Esau= Jacobs twin brother! God said “Jacob I Loved, Esau I hated!” Esau sold birthright for bowl of Soup). Ok Keep Reading so You can Learn Truth!

                  Who Can Argue With DNA Science? (brainwashed stuborn pastor hagee type fools?)

                  So DNA science has proven that the findings of many historians and anthropologists is correct. The “Jews” of Israel are not Abraham’s descendants but, instead, come from the subjects of King Bulan of Khazaria.

                  The newest DNA science finding is from Dr. Eran Elhaik (“a Jew”) and associates at the McKusick-Nathans Institute of Genetic Medicine, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. In research accepted December 5, 2012 and published by the Oxford University Press on behalf of the Society of Molecular Biology and Evolution, it was found that the “Khazarian Hypothesis” is scientifically correct. (note that Date, Dec 5,2012 less than a year old dna Proof info!)

                  What exactly is the “Khazarian Hypothesis?” Simply stated, it holds that the Jewry genome is a mosaic of ancestries which rise primarily out of the Khazars.

                  Jews are Khazars, not Israelites.

                  The “Jews” of America, Europe, and Israel are descendants not of Father Abraham but of King Bulan and the people of ancient Khazaria. Khazaria was an amalgam of Turkic clans who once lived in the Caucasus (Southern Russia) in the early centuries CE. These Turkic peoples were pagans who converted to Judaism in the eighth century. As converts, they called themselves “Jews,” but none of their blood comes from Israel.

                  Later, the “Jews” (Khazars) emigrated, settling in Russia, Hungary, Poland, Germany, and elsewhere in Europe. As “Jews,” the Khazars then left the European nations in 1948 and settled the fledgling, new nation of Israel.

                  The people of Israel are not the seed, nor the ancestors, of Abraham. They call themselves “Jews,” but in fact, DNA science shows them to be Khazars. They say they are “Jew,” but they are not.(read Rev.2:9 “imposter jews”)

                  “There are no blood or family connections among the Jews,” said Dr. Elhaik in an interview with Haaretz, Israel’s daily newspaper. “The various groups of Jews in the world today do not share a common genetic origin. Their genome is largely Khazar.” (by a jew scientist published in a jew israel newspaper haaretz!)

                  Thus, when Prime Minister Netanyahu says, “God gave this land to our Israelite forefathers,” he is absolutely wrong. There are no Israelite forefathers of today’s “Jews.” When today’s “Jews” say they should possess the land because they are Israelites and are the seed of Abraham, they are mistaken. (Or Lying! see John8:44 lie-steal-Murder like Their father satan)

                  The “Jews” are in Israel for one reason and one reason only: Because the United States, in 1948, recognized the nation of “Israel” and has since funded and protected it. God’s Word has nothing to do with it. (WWI-and Balfour doctrine of british scheems and scams also had a little to do with it, as did the swidnle, jew warII aka WWII)

                  All you Jew Blessers! PAY ATTEN HERE!! READ Slowly!

                  God’s Word, the Holy Bible, prophesied that in the last days imposters would erroneously and falsely claim to be “Jews.” These imposters would, the Bible told us, persecute their enemies and especially the Christians. But God would have his revenge:

                  I ask my evangelical Christian friends: What will you do now? Will you heed what God said, in Revelation 2 and 3, about “them which say they are Jews and are not?” Will you accept modern DNA science as legitimate and valuable in proving the truth of God’s Word? (Great Question for christians, No?)!!!

                  Or will you, dear Christian friend, walk right on by, dismissing what both God and science have informed you? (only those who like libs cannot Admit they were wrong or Taught falshoods! will do so)

                  God said that the seed of Abraham would inherit the land. Therefore, we must—absolutely must—in light of the DNA evidence, ask ourselves: Where, and who are the seed of Abraham?

                  We know that Netanyahu and the people who now inhabit Israel have no claim to the land. They are interlopers, false pretenders. But there is a true and legitimate Chosen People of God. In fact, the scriptures had it right all along. The answer is found in Galatians 3:29. Read it for yourself:(the Grand Slam homerun, of answers and truth eh)

                  “And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed and heirs according to the promise.” (after 2000 yrs 99.9% of jews are Still Not of Christ by their Own choice. There is NO free Pass to heaven for anybody who rejects Jesus, as is written, That includes Jews too. Please wake up and stop blessing fake “jews” or Perish with them.)

                  So, if you belong to Jesus our Lord, you are “Abraham’s seed,” regardless of your physical race. You are overcomers, and Revelation 21:7 promises, “He that overcometh shall inherit all things.” This is the great Truth that every true Christian knows.

              I believe that if you look closely, Obama is NOT a true supporter of our “staunch” ally Israel. He may be a part of the NWO, a friend of the bankers, etc., but he will not do much to support Israel if they need it. He is too close to the Muslim Brotherhood boys. Look how willing he was to do their bidding in Syria.

              However, I do believe that we SHOULD support Israel.

            • Them Guys says:

              MOE: I am replying to You here as that other article is old now and you are more likly to see my reply here.

              What you stated shows you have a massive lacking in understanding the Founding of America by all those white european, mostly, christians folks.

              Moe, you say muslims has a Right to come to live here in usa. Wrong. You base that on as You stated “Since white christians came to america, killed off the indians and Stole the land,” that somehow gives muslims and all others a “Right” to live here Now.

              Wrong Moe. First off as most early euro whites that came here were christians their goal with indians was to spread the Gospel and Hopefully convert what were abject Savages into civilized folks, and NO other religion has worked as well as christianity to civilize folks. Islam teaches convert or Lose your Head!…Christians do not force conversions. Yes you can find instances thru history of the past 2000 yrs where some christians did wrongs etc. Thats Human nature as All humans are Flawed and imperfect beings. Becoming christian don’t change you from still being a Human person. That don’t change facts that that represents a small almost insignificant number overall.

              As for whites killed off indians etc. Not at First they didn’t kill indians. They first attempted Peace and to teach biblical Gospel to indians. It was due to indians remaining savage and kiling white folks that led to whites use of self defence in most cases.

              Again you can find exceptions to most every issue or situation etc. So what. Thats NOT the main Point here Moe.

              Also you say we stole indians lands. What did indians build? besides a traveling tent camp group that moved as the deer or buffalo moved. Or when winter set in indians may move to warmer areas.

              You caould almost say indians were akin to Gypsys who Never set down roots. Name ONE city indians built. A Real actual city. Not some rocky zone with convienent cave holes they can reside in and call it home Moe. Real city compared to white built develpoments and cities etc.

              Name one govnt buildg, name a school etc etc. Indians never even built s road to anywheres. So thats a massive streach to say we stole the indians country Moe.

              Have you ever wondered what If indians did accept christians versions of civilized society to dewll together?…Maybe much blood shed would been avoided eh.

              Its not the rosy picture You paint of little indians sitting around the camp fire knitting bootys while whites came and asap soon as they seen the first indian opened fire to kill em all off.

              Why does muslims arabs Own suadi arabia today Moe? because they moved in there conquered arab land etc right.

              And that today gives arabs the absolute rights under ALL mans laws and national or international laws of the nations etc to Make their Own law standards as to WHO gets to live in arab lands right Moe.

              Well Us whites being the main peoples that discovered america, moved here, built most all you see as you gaze across the vast usa lands, That Now gives Us the rights today to determine Who we allow to Live in america with US. What do you not get Moe?

              Where were indians Prior to comming to live in north american land? because indians didn’t sprout from the ground like some grass or weeds right. No, indians Came here also from elsewheres.

              Also recent evidence of last 20 yrs or so has proven that archeologists digging around out west and in PA eastern usa areas, have found Skeletons and Iron Tools or bronze tools etc that Prove to not only be 9000 or more years Old, but also proved to be bones of dead Whites. Maybe early Vikings or Pre vikings folk.

              So that would mean that just maybe it was Whiteys here 8000 yrs Before indians came, and indians that killed off the early whites already here. Far as I am aware the jury is still out on it all.

              But thats not due to no evidence Moe, Rather its due mainly to various tribes indians Today has chiefs councils that get folks like Prez klinton for one, to Hush Hush up such newer finds of burried white bones and TOOLS, Very Important them Tools of iron or other metals since its whiteys that made metal tools while indians still used rock tools and remained very Primitive.

              Untill of course much more advanced whites Taught indians about steel or iron etc.

              From the little I read of it all it seems several places and several Times such whiteman bones were found and tools also. Yet every time instead of Major MSM stories of such findings, people like Klinton helped indians keep it very Quiet. And let them claim the bones to Bury in reservation lands where NO more scientists can research it unless indians give permission, which they wont.

              How badly will the indian “Lore” that we were taught as true historical Facts of indians being in america First before whites, be upset Big time of such white man bones and Tools are the true factual truths?

              Indians has made Bank and did much over past 200 yrs all based on indians were here First right.

              What “IF” that is not true history? That will cause affects similar to as Example: suppose new proven evidence showed beyond all doubt that blacks were never slaves?… Or never so badly treated as claimed?

              Picture how That would affect things. 99% of every Pro black, same as most every Pro indian issues or benifits etc those groups get or have Today are all based upon their respective claims of this or that bad stuff occured and whiteys is to Blame.

              What if Real truth proves whites were here 8000 yrs Before the first Indian Moe? As so far bones and Tools proves. Then what I stated prior, what happened to those early whiteys? Either they ALL left usa, or indians killed whites off. Not much other choices eh.

              Picture an indian crying how whites did bad stuff to indians. And it turns out NO thats backwards of real facts. If truth, indians wont be able to keep drinking booze and recieving free shit whiteys pays for no more eh.

              Reservation lands may be shrunk down a little if whites were here first and killid off by indians eh.

              Thats the Major reason what I read of it all suggested. Indians wanted those white bones burried on res land to Nip research in the Bud and Halt it.

              Either way Moe bottom Line whites came here and Built america BY Hand. Roads-schools-churches-towns-States-a NATION of 99% Whiteys at first. That earned Us the Right to determine yes or No to can muslims just wander over and begin to Live here in Our nation Moe. Get it yet?

              America aint some type Disneyland Playground where its fully 24/7/365 Open to all Public and we cannot turn any away!…Thats a wrong attitude Moe. Today we do have a diverse group yes. But whiteys are Still at least a 2/3rd Majority. Decended From that 99% white Majority who discovered and Founded and Built america…

              So when it is all said and done Moe, nobody else But whiteys has more birthright to what we call america.

              PS so far in Every advanced society and nation, whiteys has Proved many times over, that no others seems Gifted to Run a nation as well and proper as us whites do.

              Its NOT whiteys still living in the 8th cent ad Moe, like mid east region does. Its Not whiteys still building a Village of Homes with Mud huts created from Raw dirt, human shit, cattle shit, and very dirty raw waters from some puddle after it rains like african hut villages of Today in africa Moe.

              So yes while one can find examples of whites doing wrongs or even evils, etc as a Whole, overall, in the entire world over no others besides whites has acomplished invented or built so much Good stuff.

              No others besides White Christians has ever been so compasionate, kind, peacefull, willing to Share our good blessings and good fortunes with most every Other race or group. And you can Read the entire New testement which IS christianity aka the New covenant between God and Christians, and see that NOwheres in there does it even Remotely promote such Violence towards Others as does Your Koran Moe, and the Judiacs Talmud books also promote.

              When it comes to Two basics of Religion and Civilization. No other of nations. religions, peoples races etc has proven to be as good and sucessfull and blessed as christianity and white folks. Its just the way it is Moe. God decided to bless whites if they agree to be christians. Well Most whites did agree and overall most whiteys did get blessed like no others especially those who Founded America. All that combined gives us the Birthrights to make laws and decide who we allow to also live here amoung Us folk Moe. Same as Your mid east bros or pals makes Their laws on immigrants etc.

                Sorry Them Guys, Your long delusional rant was as lacking in factual history as you are in inclusiveness. It would take a book to correct you here (Start with Peoples History Of The United States, Black Elk Speaks, and Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee.)

                In short, Native people had a radically different view of how we are to live with the Earth. The Earth does not, and never has “belonged” to us. We don’t have “dominion” over animals. We are animals, and belong to the Earth. Luckily we can reason and not just be animal instinct, which is the root of your racism.

                We see around us the society created by the dominion myth and it’s not pretty, healthy, or sustainable. That is why its collapsing around us. To the natives, it was no badge of advancement to have a city or road, but the west is full of them. There are ancient sites that are so accurately astrologically aligned that modern science is just now catching up to it.

                Statistics show all kinds of races, every one of them an immigrant, built America and it really is not all that advanced. Many nations top America now in all manner of good living, we just rule in starting, and threatening, major wars, including world ones, if we and the “chosen” people don’t get our way. A very good case can be made that it is time for that to leave the planet. Racism is not the future my friend. For any race, but especially for the whites. We’re what’s known as “the previous manager” and it’s about to be new ownership.

                  If you choose to believe mambo jambo Pagan religious cultic indian type stuff go ahead on. Reject that God created Man and Gave Man dominion over the earth and animals etc. You say humans are just animals. Fine You can believe You evolved from an Ape if thats what you want to believe. I reject that.

                  I said that there always exceptions and not all whites ever did wasnt wrongs. Of course whites as humans do wrongs sometimes. Yet if compared for example to todays past 50 yrs FBI crime stats it documents factually that in usa Blacks while just 10-12% pop, are responsible for an avg each yr for 85+% ALL violent crimes in ALL catagories of violent crimes.

                  So I Am NOT wrong nor a Racist when I state the acomplishments of whites in General.

                  You cant take one or two wounded knee events as examples and say whiteys are all bad. Nor that all indians are poor persecuted folks that never did wrong to whiteys.

                  What I stated is accurate. You sound like a new ager type so I exepct you to reject it all.

                  You think america would be way better if no roads or buidgs were ever built. I do not. Then you state the many other nations are better Built up than usa is. Sounds like YOU are confused to what you believe or desire.

          BI,

          I have come to appreciate your comments and insight regarding many things but especially earthquakes. Can you comment more on the energy arcs in the western China, northeastern India, northern Burma area. Kingdon Ward, the great British explorer and naturalist, personally witnessed and described the impact of a huge quake that devastated the area back in the early 1950s. I know a lot of folks that would be effected by a disastrous repeat quake like that. He described a scene where he witnessed a King Cobra and a Gaur racing uphill for safety. Apparently animals can tell way ahead of people when an earthquake is about to hit.

          I have sent out your warnings to many family and friends living and working in Thailand, China, Burma, and India and have sent a piece written by Doug Copp on earthquake safety that proposes we should avoid ‘duck and cover’ but get next to any structure to find the ‘safety triangle’ and to avoid stairs. Any comments and pointers on what to do in an earthquake scenario would be helpful as well both for initial survival and long term survival. Thanks.

          “Look at what’s going on today with regard to DHS and FEMA. There are no less than eight disaster drills planned between the period of time which started September 25th and goes through November 13th.”

          If the shutdown is really a shutdown then I don’t see how these “drills” can go forward. If they do it is more proof that this is all Kabuki theater, again.

          Our politicians have so few ideological differences I don’t know why they just don’t call themselves Repdems. I only hope that people like Cruz – Paul and the Tea Party themed politicians can make a difference. They may (imho) be the new patriots of the United States.

          Which brings up another point. For all of those Sarah Palin haters out there no this: The reason for this shut down is politician’s that she supported getting into office.

          It is my sincere hope that this shut down is the beginning of the end for our current form of government. Out of the 1.2 million federal employee’s only 800,000 are not going to work today. Sounds to me like that is the number (400,000) federal employees that we should have working for us anyway.

            From Jamestown onward, many pledged not only to settle the New World, but to work and to produce a profit for their sponsors from the Old World.

            The orators and fancy pants parasite takers are a distraction. They came much later, and any who accept their concocted version of history are abject fools.

            A farmer, trader, or industrialist who takes time away from his labors to fight against tyranny is a hero and a founder.

            They who spend their lives in fancy costumes, they who layabout their frivolous offices of authority, they who pray upon every decent working man until he is unable to labor for himself and his family, while they themselves produce nothing of value. May they be exposed as the scummiest of the scum. The lowest of the low. The evilest of all evils.

            May they be cut down like the chafe they are. May they perish from the face of this land of plenty, which upon being freed from their predations, will again provide for us all, as much as we all could want.

            May they all soon pass away into the ground, may their numbers decrease, may their descendants deny them and change their names, may their bones wither away, may their names and thieveries be forgotten, and may they never be spoken of again.

          Good post bud,
          I know i have year round growing but if i lived stateside i would add a greenhouse on to one of the outside walls of my house, near a chimney or wood stove or possibly even put one in it,
          You can grow all sorts of stuff in a good greenhouse, real important to be able to do.
          I have one here but its usually too hot even in the winter months for anything but starting plants.

            Kula, that is true here, in the winter. Even for starts, people should plan on sleeping in the greenhouse and getting up every few hours to check the stove.

            Greens can be grown in a below grade cold frame with a ventable 45 degree South-facing angled glass side above grade. You need to dig it about 4-5 feet down.

            For a greenhouse in a hot climate, check out commercial shadecloth suppliers. There is a pink one that will cut the heat and let in light that is the correct reddish wavelength for bloom and production. Expensive, but it lasts for years. My little plastic greenhouse gets to over 90 degrees or more in the summer. Still, in past years, I have successfully grown anything needing heat and light by 1) using the pink shadecloth, 2) keeping a fan going and 3) misting everything 2-3 times a day if I see it starting to wilt. There are low wattage box fans and 12 volt fans that can be run off alternative sources.

            Hydro also need some power source for the pumps and lights. There are now compact florescent grow bulbs that pull lower wattage and work if they are within a foot or less of the plants. That said, it still takes 5 months to grow even an early cherry tomato. Hydro lettuce is not that tasty and lacks substance. Some Japanese vegetables have been miniaturized and naturally prefer cooler temps. These seeds are mostly available from the PNW and the topic is searchable. I haven’t tried mini Brussels Sprouts, but I bet they would substitute for cabbage, especially if harvested early.

            I imagine in Hawai’i everything depends on elevation. I have seen wonderful farms on Maui that are high up in the hills.

              Elevation definitely makes a difference
              Im at 3200, even though, it still gets a bit warm for real good lettuce, temps have been quite a bit higher over the last 5-6 years (noticeably so)
              Th shadecloth helps, ventilation too,
              Kale can be a substitute for cabbage, i grow green curled, makes an excellent slaugh when blanched first.

                Good that you guys are growing something. However if you are talking about a garden for survival, Id stay away from the leafy greens and non starchy root plants. You cant grow the stuff fast enough for even enough food for a single person. They contain little calories. Grow potatoes and beans and if able, rice. Corn tasts good but the amount produced per area is low. Potatoes are really the best bet.

              You can also grow leeks from ends cut off ones you buy. I wasn’t sure about celery but I’m going to try. I got basil to root from cuttings too. A guy down the road has a hydroponics shop I kind of think caters to folks who grow exotic plants but it has lots of applications for growing veggies indoors. Only problem is that it requires a big power supply for ventilation and circulation and the lights of course. Same with aquaponics. Needs power for circulation and aerators and is costly to run. I was too late getting things in for a fall garden but have high hopes for next year. Kind of new at all this but trying to figure it out. My green beans left on the plants will be my seeds for next year and I’ve saved some squash, bought up heirloom seeds I could find. Put in blueberry bushes and will put in a few apple trees next year. My new neighbor cut down all the fruit trees in his yard! Apples, pear and peaches! I actually cried when I realized what he did- said he was tired of raking leaves.. He didn’t want the bother. I wish I could have dug them up or knew what he was doing, would have offered to tend them. There one day, chopped up into pieces and hauled off the next. Now I hear they want to take our woodstoves away and give us crappy ones that don’t smoke as much because of environmentalist concerns.. and horses were just declared vicious animals in our state- going to state supreme court next, sure hope they knock that one down- what will we have to work the fields with if the grid goes down and people have all gotten rid of their horses? At least we can still collect rainwater here. Big Brother leave us alone…

          Man on the Inside:

          As I scrolled back through the subjects on this SHTF site the subjects given to us by Mac seem to be about information, information, information.

          Not just information on preps, information on the banksters screwing us, the infernal revenue screwing us, the government wanting to take us to WW3., etc., etc.

          One of Mac’s subjects was titled “You can call me a doomer or whatever you’d like…..

          There was a paragraph there that dealt with “Reality”:

          “Reality is being an ‘informed concerned citizen’ in a Republic that is quickly deteriorating, and being an informed citizen who realizes he, she, all of us must take steps to protect our family for what is clearly coming.”

          Now I take that to mean that something is/has happened to my dearly loved Republic and my way of dealing with that ‘reality’ is to begin a search to find out what is happening, what is going to happen, and through history, why it is happening.

          I want to know why we are being thrust unwillingly and by a lot of citizens unwittingly into what looks like world war three.

          I want to know if all those preps you are making and the tools you are sharpening and the education you are doing for yourself will be used by you and the patriots on this site; or if Homeland Security and the government agencies have a more sinister idea in mind for you, your tools, and your education.

          Know how to find the answer to this? Read some of the educational posts here and then let your fingers do the walking through the internet.

          If some of you do not like the historical posts, etc. all you have to do is scroll. Not too much to ask of you. I am sure that there is at least one post a day that I don’t like. Pretty simple. SCROLL!

          There are people daily who view SHTF who never post here. Are we to assume they are all up to date on their preps and their understanding of history. Hardly….

I also have Jewish friends who are preppers and have never stole one dime or screwed one person and who are very generous and just awesome people (two are on our team) and they are sick of the bashing and don’t come here anymore. Some of these “history lessons” are just an excuse to be a Jerk and spew hate so don’t sell it like it is not. MAC dose not spew hate. But some of these posts do… and please don’t try to tell us otherwise… there are some very smart people who read and post here including MAC.

          Well said and about time. When I read some of the crap being thrown around here at what other folks say I know that there’s a troll floating turds with the sole purpose of getting someone upset. I’ve lived long enough to know that “Sticks and stones Will break my bones but words will NEVER hurt me.” Get over it. For those of you folks who are trying to present information about some belief system over another, it has the same impact as a prepper trying to convince a died in the wool sheep of the truth. Listen, folks, the information is out there, it’s available and not just about TSHTF. Give it a rest for your own peace of mind.
          There are a millions ways of saying we are standing on the threshold of hell and the longer it goes without blowing up the bigger the bang it is going to be, but the good side is that just gives us more time to get another can of beans or powder. Your comment about finding and building a team has haunted me for the past few years as every door I think it’s okay to knock on is shut in my face. Not bothered by the shutting but running out of options.. Was at our Sanctuary in the White Mountains of AZ last week and the realization that the only folks who would probably show up are the kids, their spouses and children. While that is heartwarming in the “family” effect it is chilling in the “here’s the gun now shoot that SOB.” Anyway, i decided to take a rather drastic step and start wearing my BOB when i go for my daily/evening walks. Another like-minded soul would see that and my hope is maybe they’ll make contact or “open a door” to the possibility of friendship. Pray, prep and protect, dj.

        I call bullshit on this article. Who makes up this “unseen” army of Feds? FEMA: are you kidding, they have less than 7,500 personnel and many of them are unarmed support personnel. Maybe it’s the Coast Guard with almost 50,000 uniformed and 8,000 civilian personnel, but again, most of them are not armed either. Yeah, I know, most of the uniformed could be then who’d watch our water ways? Maybe it’s those fat old farts from TSA! No, they’re not armed either except for a few of their bomb dog handlers. Let’s see, maybe it’s CBP and ICE with nearly 84,000 personnel. But wait, about 40% of them are not sworn officers and don’t carry guns. To use them you’d have to close down every international airport and seaport, along with all boarder crossing stations. That’s over 300 ports of entry in case anyone was wondering. This would definitely kill what’s left of our economy. This accounts for nearly 204,000 of the entire DHS staff of just 240,000. I know, facts backed up by math are really a Buzz-Kill for paranoid fantasies, but that’s really for you! Is the economy falling apart, absolutely, but there’ll be no “army” of any kind to either help us or take-over much of anything. Certainly no one from DHS unless you live a major metro area. It’s about to be YOYO Time (You’re On Your Own).

          Those are great points Dave, and it’s good to be rational and practical, but all we know of their numbers is what they tell us, and God knows who all will join their team when the SHTF. Wasn’t it John D Rockefeller who said he could hire half the working class to kill the other half? It’s amazing what some will stoop to when they go a couple days without food. Personally, I think we’re about to have massive chaos, on the level of Libya, Greece and Egypt, for much the same reasons, it’s what our government foments, to benefit its banksters and police, hoping that after a few weeks, or months, of this, people would beg for any atrocious government just to get the lights back on and a sandwich. Sad to say it.

        If as Hodges says that the fed res and us fed govnt are so worried about Iran trading gold for oil? Then Why did the us fed govnt place such srtingent Sanctions against all forms of nations trade with Iran etc?

        Those sanctions on Iran Are the main issue that causes Iran to begin to trade Oil For Gold in the first place!

        That was the exact same tactic used against germany in 1933 and beyoned to stifle trade with germany since germany soley depended upon international trade with other nations, and usa was their number one trade partners then.

        Overnite sanctions were imposed on german goods then, same as todays recent trade sanctions on Iran.

        And today Iran like germany back then has no other choice but to consider such sanctions as an econonomic Act of War.

        After all when just feeding your entire nations peoples as both in Iran now and germany then was/is reality dependant upon open lines of trade what else can any such nation believe it to be besides an act of war.

        Starvation of 2/3rd of your nations peoples is just as deadly as armed military forces raiding your shores to kill with bullets and bombs right. Starvation is just a slower way of mass killing folks.

        America would do no less if whatever we need was suddenly shut off by sanctions or other means to deprive us of necessary items.

        So this all sounds like the wrong idea or fails to see that irans oil for gold deals are a direct responce to usa imposed sanctions against iran.

        As such it came as no suprize to usa officials as They are who imposed sanctions and Had to know iran will exchange oil for gold to buy food or other items needed to survive.

        As for those folks here who think all they were told by tv news like fox tv news about how evil and backwards and stone aged iran lifestyles are today?

        I recomend highly You type folks go to Yutube videos and search for and View “Persian Nights”.

        And one or Two related iran videos that show the actual life and day to day in Iran and its main major city. Terhan is it?

        One of that series of iran yutube vids shows NOTHING But Pure White folks. Iran means aryan as in white folk aryans.

        In That all white iranians video you shall see some of The Most beautifull white women with awsome bodies, Blue and Green eyes, brown-red-and blonde hair, and the most prettiest womens faces you have ever seen in the best playboy layout centerfold ever.

        No joke! Seeing IS believeing right. Go see those Iran yutube videos. Notice also in persian nights it highlites Day and Night life scenes from Bars-dance clubs-to day time shoppers galore walking the streets like it is Rodeo Drive store fronts, and their Bar/club scenes are as if you were viewing Miami Fla clubs and women.

        99% of the women Only wear colorfull scarves that barely cover the top half of heads. None walk around in burkas like saudi arabia with eye slits and all black tents head to toe.

        Iran is nothing as fox news leads one to think.

        Like I said Seeing Is believing right…Go view both videos, the lifestyles of iran vid And the video that shows Nothing but photo after photo after photo for 1/2 hr, all of white women and many small kids and babies up to teens ages kids…EVERY single person whiter than most white americans are even in winter without a tan are.

        Once you see how advanced and massivly built the main city Terahan is especially a few photo shots from an airplane overlooking the entire huge city at nite and daylite I think your perceptions of Iran and its Peoples, includeing at least 2-3 Million Christians, your pre formed fox tv induced attitudes on iranians may need Re thinking a bit.

        ps as long as your main source for info is DEBKA or Jeruselem Post newspapers its not likly you will ever achieve any real idea of what common iran folks and life there is really like. Israeli and usa MSM tv news etc have a vested intrest in You Not viewing those yutube videos and seeing what really goes on in Iran today.

        pss I have seen 3-4 such videos so far and not one shows cave dwellers eating goats after the men screw the goats.

        Like I said if one did not know it was life in Iran they’d think it was beautifull ladys shopping Rodeo Drive like movie stars in Kalif do.

          Excellent insight Them Guys as usual. I also recommend the readers do a search on David Dukes insight on Iran and the Persians after he attended the TRUTH Seminar in IRAN. During my college years I got to know many Iranian students (btw they like to be called Persians). I can’t say anything negative about them. Brilliant and smart and amazingly fun and friendly people. Yes they are true ARYANs…and that’s why they hate arabs since they believe the arab invasion caused their empire to collapse and the people to be forced to adopt Islam (which is a norm for Muslims to force their religion on others as they called non believers). FOX news is zionist owned like other corporate media so they are full of lies. I personally believe the only real friend that USA can rely on in the Middle east is IRAN. But as always our beloved government follows the zionist direction and sides with Al Quida, Saudis and other Arab nations who are the scums of the earth.

              If the USD collapses the entire world is in free fall. Approximately 2/3 of the USD is overseas. The domestic worry is concerning. Global warfare as the have not nations say, “screw it” and steal off the haves is frightening.

              Yes, you are right. Worst case is grid down really. Too many people won’t listen to warnings to learn how to grow a little food, learn to cook on something other than a gas or electric stove, or manage to have chickens or something. Many of us are trying but are still behind the curve. And what good will it do if they declare martial law and come take what you have anyway? I heard they can do that- take your food supplies, livestock, anything to feed the masses. I live in a dense population area- rural but still lots of people around. Zombies to the left, zombies to the right, here I am in the middle. All I can hope is that more people prepare than I know about but from what I see after storms that’s not the case. We were one of the last towns to get power back after Sandy in this state and folks were getting freaky- and they KNEW help was on the way. They could still get out to places with power and buy what they needed. They would get on their cell phones and message the power company on facebook and were all nasty with them, threatening stupid things. People were going around cutting up downed lines and trying to sell the wires inside. Generators were stolen, homes broken into. I can’t imagine those same people staying sane if the pizza place in the next town wasn’t open. Or the liquor store. In a grid down scenario the stench of bodies will be horrible and there will be no law except survival of the fittest and the fastest shot perhaps. Or those able to be diplomatic, skilled at de-escalation. I didn’t understand the scope of a planned EMP attack until I read One Second After this past summer. I haven’t been able to stop preparing since. It’s expensive to do this however and I worry about being over run for what I manage to store. I’ve tried to prepare for that as well but need some advice. What do I need for self protection? To hunt? How much will it cost? How much is ammo and how much do I need? I’m serious. Who needs permits? Everyone?

              Tep like I said go see those yutube videos on Persians. You will swear you are seeing pure white beautifluu women and kids and babies. Some of the most whitest folks on earth. And one will be Hard pressed to find better looking babes when you see the women there in iran!

              I am talking like a majority a hgue majoirty look good enough to be in playboy magazines centerfolds and Not even need any photo touch ups.

              it blows your mind if all you ever knew of iran or its peoples is what Fox tv shows tells you.

              I ws stunned when first viewed that one yutube vid with at least a hundred mixed photo shots of a mix of adult women, teens, smakk kiddies and even babies a year old.

              Pure white skin, Brightest Blue eyes you ever seen, same for green eyes. Every color and shade of colors of hair.

              Simply some of the Most beautifull women I ever saw. And dressed in tight jeans and normal tops etc….It is NOTHING like Fox hannity or news tv shows leads you to picture Iran. If nobody told you and you began in Middle of video, youd likly guess it was Miami or any major us or euro city and peoples.

              Perhaps Thats why Israeli jews so Hate iranain Persians eh…Because Persians Are Aryans and the Craddle of aryan White civilizations. If I recall my learnings correct, back when after Babylon was overthrown by the Medes-Persia group, or in book of Danial the Chest of silver portion of medeo-persia, it was that MEDES parts that are the Whites orig called Arayns. Not certain on that, but do think its correct info.

            Charles: it seems you neglect to distinguish between christian americans, and jewish zionists aka Talmudic Judiacs. It is the Talmudic “god” that is as you say jelous or racist and promotes one race alone and all others are gentile Goyims.

            The word Goyim actually is hebrew for Nation and Greek Ethnos of the new testement also is nations. Therefore both ethnos and goyims Means Races.

            BUT if you read the many, many tons of quoted statements by more jewish rabbis and jews in general than you can count, what They usually always mean by Goy and Goyim is “Animals” as in Herd animals.

            It Is Their talmudic beliefs that teach jewish folks that all NON jews are Goyim/animals and that ONLY jews are Humans with a real soul from “god”.

            Talmud teaches that whenever a jew Human, kills or harms or robs or scams or lies to any gentile goyim Thats OK and zero sin or crimes. ONLY when reversed and a gentile does those things TO a jew human is it a punishable sin and Crime. Most such goyim commited crimes to be punished by stoneing to Death the guilty goyim.

            So basically there is a vast huge difference between christian and jew. Although Most pastors and evangelicals today will tell you NO the jews and christians worship the Same God. Obviously that cannot be true as if jews did they will accept Jesus which 99+% do Not and likly wil never accept Him.

            I have a few Rabbi quotes that they all admited, reluctantly, that the Real god of their talmud is Lucifer who we usually call the devil Satan! Their Tamlud racist teachings prove those few rabbis are at least Honest!

            Will see if can find those rabbi statements to post. Not certain where to look now, but will check.

            One more issue. There is a difference also from a racist and a Racialist. I am a Racialist. I recognize that God created races that are different. Different in many ways besides just skin color. Yet God Loves them All equally when they Obey Him. And all the races are created with various qualities that other races may lack in or excell in. Thats Not racist to aknoweledge such.

            Its NOT racist if one preferes to be around his Own Kind. And its not racist to admit that things like violent crime stats proves certain races commit more than others does. Its simply the way it is.

        • Ugly…the date on an FRN has the word “series” beside or above it. This is not the date it was printed.

          Series dates are changed (modern FRNs) when there is a change in the note. This can be just because of a new Sec. of the Treasury signature or another change.

          They are still printing FRNs…well, not sure with the shutdown…

          The new hundred will be released in a week. I would be willing to bet that the series on that will not be 2013. It will probably be 2010 since a bunch were printed that year but not released for some reason. Just sayin…

        It seems to me you contradict yourself in your post.
        First you comment on how one cannot claim to be uninformed if they read this site.
        in the next sentence you admit to needing
        “Tomorrow morning I will be out stocking up on a few groceries and getting the few things I have been saying could wait awhile, well the waiting is over it is crunch time.”
        I find it difficult to understand that statement. Since the fall in ’08 it has been obvious to anyone even mildly informed that another fall was coming. That is a minimum of 5 years we have been given to prepare. In that 5 years my husband & I have spent every ounce of energy & every dollar we have preparing. We’ve listed nothing that “could wait” this was to avoid the situation you referred to as “Crunch time”!
        every dollar has been accounted for. For us a date out is a red box movie every other week @ $1.20. Between us we have 5 children their spouses and 15 grandkids. with the 2 of us that is a total of 27.
        We have put away food for 3 years livestock & seed for replacement. Through yard sales & thrift stores cloths & shoes for them & us for several years. Firearms & ammo reloading components, medicines, kerosene, propane, etc. etc.
        A few nights ago we were sitting out on our swing discussing our progress…..
        we came up with little we could use & and even less that we figured we “needed” !
        It has been a rough several years! We are in no way wealthy ….. ( most would consider us working poor)
        We just pushed ahead a little at a time. What was on sale was what we were stocking. We bartered for a lot traded work or produce for another work or produce. I traded pork for potatoes & grain for the pigs! Milk for hay & grain for the cow! etc. For permission to pick the fruit I canned some for the owner (her jars for her fruit).
        At one of the secondhand clothing stores I traded the grandkids cloths they out grew for cloths they can grow into. ( I had to convince her on the idea of 2 for 1 like the used book store)
        What I am saying is if you are “Informed” you should be “ready” by now. We’ve had 5 VERY obvious years to prepare. When you speak of “crunch time” should be popcorn & a movie you are talking about!

                  Well if you Look at all/every Ad onsite here, and include the Massive listing of Many Other Prepper sites that deal with and offer all sorts of preps avail from A to Y…It seems that the ONLY Letter missing is the “Z” as in Zionists. So I think its real swell that This site has about 1/2 dozen folks here who posts replys and info on what would seem to be the ONLY missing Prep info I was able to find when first learned of this site.

                  That of course would be that elusive missing “Z” related info. And while some folks take it as insignificant or old info etc…Many more do Not. As they recognize that, if only, it were Past distant history of troubles, that would be welcome info indeed.

                  However those who are fully awake know that is wishfull thinking since it Is the same group, same ideals, same evil intents, that now Today not only represent a continuation of the original decievers and destroyers of america as a Republic. But in fact are even way More in control today, control way more agendas, more info and msm sources, and due to modern high tech abilities which they also Own or mannage or Both, if anyone agrees or believes that the fed res bankster cabals of 1913 did some evil shit, and were definatly an evil bunch of Demonics….They once one learns of and considers just How much More advanced and how much more In Control they have become todays era.

                  Then one will have to also agree that unfortunatly as much as we may wish it were not so, the cabals and banksters causing vast troubles as far back as Civil war 1865 eras if not earlier yet, have never gone away. Therfore like a sore wound that Fails to heal properly.

                  While yes that wound sore does have a Scab covering it, so to some folks it may “seem” healed, or no longer of any importance, yet in reality if they simply slightly Lift that scab, to Peer inside under that scab, and use a magnafier glass to peer close and Deep, they soon realize not only has the wound not as yet ever been healed. But as you stated above, what will be seen under that scab deep inside the wound sore will be tiny Mirco sized Joooose germs.

                  And as long as the main infecting Germs remain, then its not likely we shall see a true need to halt all talk of such issues and histories.

                  Many others reading here may be “newbees” and as yet never learned of the issues some folks like me post here.

                  Those who do not desire to read more such info are always Free to pass by my info and not read it.

                  I do notice one “complainer” in Particular, himself has the same “Habit” of repititious post infos.

                  And I assume the reason he repeats always “Form Teams, stock foods, train etc etc etc”…Is probobly for the same reason as Mine is. Because you never know when newbees are here and not yet aware of such important info eh.

                  Others have thanked some of us here for Our type info as they agreed it vastly Opened Their formerly closed eyes. They too thought they Knew..Really Knew whats what.

                  Untill after reading info like I post, then going to Verify such info on their own time, they realized they never yet learned of such info. Some folks even agree that knowing Who and What is at work destroying Us real true american folk is at least as important as storeing Food etc.

                  Personally I am Glad to have, and I truely Value most Every poster person here regardles What info they post. Thats the reason I rarely complain, as even if its already known by me its still great info and necessary.

                  Some may think I complain, but there is a diference from complain, and “correcting” wrong info based upon false teachings we all been subjected to our entire lives.

                  I will attempt to further satisfy the few complainers and research to see if I can dig up Any valid info that shows that besides zionists etc we face an equal potential threats from ET’s, or any so called false religions’ Fairys or Leprechauns etc …because you just never know right. I shall report back on my new findings, if any exist.

                  Just as in the Medical professions, today we have a wide variety of doctors who specialize in different ill’s and disease’s. It is comforting to know that even in the Perppers community we too have a wide variety of “Doctors”. Unfortunatly unlike an even goodly number of doctors of the medical fields…Today as advanced as we are, we still seem to Lack sorely, enough prepper “doctors” whose specialty is of that elusive “Z” catagory of infos. That Will change when others get wized up, and some of them also become doc’s assisting in awakening many more folks across the nation as we few now do.

    5. The VOICE from the Outer World says:

      A few short minutes ago the Federal Govenment has entered ‘shut-down’….

      As Jefferson observed long ago in the Fondational document, the Declaration of Indepndence;

      *********************************************************

      “That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such
      principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictatethat Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are
      accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”

      *********************************************************

      Where are we now Friends, today?

      The governement embodied in the Federal Authority which has long overseen the affairs of of this Nation stands on the brink of being shut-down; held hostage by an elite group of special interests who have NO interests in the actual welfare of those of whom this
      Nation consists, “We, The People…”

      On sufferage: The Blood o many has been spilt by these self-same special interests, through innumerable Wars….time and again callously, and without regard for ought but the enrichment of the few at the expense of the many; this IS AN ABUSE.
      Placing the Wealth of this Nation in the hands of the most venal segment of Humnaity – the Bankers – and authorizing those to ‘coin and print’ the money of the Nation in clear violation of the enumerated powers originally granted by ‘We, the People” who FORMED
      this government, leading to a long train of abuses tooo numerous to count, IS AN ABUSE.
      The recently revealed extent of the collection and archiving of the conversations of the People by the various agency’s of the Federal Government without proper warrant or oversight is an abuse of ‘We, the People…” of the First Order and Magnitude, scarcely
      less wicked than TREASON by those who have done so.

      The Founders, though only Men…and NOT Gods, laid down the principles they did in the clear and reassonable consideration of WHAT they themselves had WITNESSED as excesses in all previous institutions of the Governance of Men to preclude these things from
      arising again amongst us…did they not? I submit that they…and We, have FAILED.

      Therefor, in Grim contemplation of what now is, it is with a heavy Heart that I now submit that we have passed beyond the confines of tolerance and are come to that place where RECTIFICATION is required, to wit I would ask those here to consider the following proposal and
      to ask themselves whether the curent circumstance warrants the invocation of the latter portion of that of Mt Jefferson’s thought, reproduced here above,

      “How Long, OH Lord!, must the Rightreous suffer?”

      Perhaps, as this Nation was brought into existence by the clear statement of the Founders which is the Declaration of Independence then the only reasonable route left to us by which rectification can be obtained lays in and along a similar path, to wit I ask you.
      consider then the following which is here delineated…

      ********************************************************

      A Proposal, for A Declaration of Nullification

      In the passage of Time since the Founding and in the course of Human events since then, it has been seen that the Labours and Efforts of All, from the Founders themselves to the Lives lost in the hundreds of years which have passed in innumerable Wars – many without merit – to this very day and all who now live, have PROVED Fruitless and in Vain. In light of this Great Failure, “We The People…” do here by Declare the current Governance of these hithero ‘United States of America’ to be Null and Void.

      A Decent Respect for the Opinions of Humankind requires that the reasons for this action should made open and plain in the sight thereof,
      Though the Wisdom of the Founders was Great and fully tempered by the excesses they themselves Witnessed in the travails and turmoils which led to the Independence of the Colony’s from the Britons, they could not and did not forsee the fullness of the evolution of the American experiment and so failed to install adequate safeguards
      for thier posterity. Chiefest amongst these oversights was that of failing to grasp the influence of excess Wealth in provoking the Corruption of the province of the Governance of the People, by the Few, Who have in All time since demonstrated clear and unswerving
      dedication to thier own increase at the Expense of All others, even unto the Base and Dire Corruption of Democracy itself.

      It is to be noted that the Founders did not err in principle, but only in sufficiency, and that the bulk of what comes down to Us from Them is both Good and Wholesome. The errors of the Old World, and indeed, the America’s in All time since, are seen to be the effect of the endless efforts of the Few to make of themselves Gods amongst Men, and by so doing reduce all others to
      a state of abject poverty and enslavement. That the Object of the Few is as stated is evinced by the following: The Federal Government of These United States has acted directly to abolish or circumscribe the Rights of the People as Guaranteed by the Constitution and the
      associated Bill of Rights, to wit, The passage of, and later amendments to, the 2012 NDAA effectively revoking the due process of Law established since the time of the writing of the Magna Carta in the following ways,

      1) Removes the Guarantee of Security of one’s own person and papers from unreasonable Search, seizure and confinement,

      2) Removes the Guarantee of the Freedom of Speech; placing any who give voice to Objection, in arbitrary fashion and outisde of all standard’s of Law, at risk of summary and indefinite detention,

      3) Allows for the exercise of unlimited authority over the Citizens of the Nation by those not elected by the People, who are instead Appointee’s and Civil Servants,

      4) The Federal Government has acted to sustain War outide the boundary’s of this Nation for over 100 years both to the detriment of the People and for the enrichment of the Few as embodied by the Military-Industrial complex and all associated therewith, causing
      the Death’s of untold millions of person’s, both Foreign and Domestic and in so doing granting even fuller measure of control of the Governance of the Nation to those who benefit thereby,

      5) The clear revocation of the acts of Posse Commitatus.

      6) The impending ceasation of the functioning of the Fedaeral Goverment, whilst held hostage by the special interests which have come to excercise unlawful authority thereover…

      *********************************************************

      Neither is the preceding to be accounted as a full listing of the Offences which the Federal Government has sanctioned to be committed against “We the People”, but only a small fraction thereof.

      In light of all foregoing it is clear therefor that TREASON has been commited by the Federal Govermernment of the United States against the many individual States of which it Consist and the People thereof, and that thereby it’s actions have established a state such that it has Abdicated Any and All Claim to Authority over the People of said States. For consider that the very basis
      of the our form of governance, as set down by the Founder’s in the Declaration of Independence which asserts Imperatively;

      “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by thier Creator with certain unalienable Rights. That AMONGST these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

      To be sure, the arbitrary removal of one’s liberty via
      Supra-Legal Authority is absurd and wholly anathema to the Governance our Founder’s conceived and writ large upon the fabric of thier Creation…for what is described above IS Identical to what they fled centuries ago, and thereafter Rebelled against upon the founding of this Nation itself. NO clearer example of the Perfidy of those who have Co-opted the governance of the Nation
      from the People can ever be described and SO the [erpetrators of these acts are seen to have commited the crime of Treason against the Nation, and the People thereof.

      Beyond this, it has become clearly evident that Federal Governance of the many States has fallen into such disarray that it cannot even effectively govern it’s own activities and that the increasing magnitude of it’s failures to do so now threaten’s the People themselves unto the Destruction of the Nation and likely all within it….

      The Utter and Complete Failure of the Congress of the United States of America to pass laws for the good of the Nation at present is wholly manifest before the People, and self-evident, needing no further explication herein. The Shameful Artifices employed therein to garner limitless and perpetual Authority unto the Few is an OFFENCE against the Founder’s conceptions and
      the principles set forth under thier hand’s, of the First Order and Magnitude….

      The destruction of the basis of the Fair and Equitable trade of this Nation with other Nations by the agency of “Free Trade” arranged and supported by various of the administrations of the past and adhered to to this day is clearly seen to provide the final mechanism of the destruction of the commerce of the whole
      Land and all it’s people’s. That this has served only to benefit those already most priviledged amongst the People is inarguably self-evident for at no other time have the profit’s accrued by Industry in the Country have been seen to be so eggregiously concentrated amongst the Few. Whether or no this has occured by
      collusion or happenstance is irrelevant; it is – Prima Fascae – evidence that the system, as currently ordered, has been Corrupted….

      By all thus and therefor, and also by these presents, be it fully known to all Humankind that by the Will of the People and the attendant States which are formed thereof, that the Federal Goverment is as of this day Dissolved and made Null, for the Founders expressed clearly the conditions which merited thier original Seperation in the words reproduced in Nr Jeeferson’s
      thoughts in the second paragraph leading here;

      Millions have perished since the Founding such that;

      “…Government Of the People, By the People and For the People shall not perish from the face of the Earth.”

      Those who have given thier last, full measure of devotion cannot, should not, ever be denied; for the ground upon which we walk today is hallowed by the blood of those Far above any measure which we who yet walk it can provide…

      I quote now the words of a previous supreme Court Justice, Louis Brandies;

      ““Our government teaches people by example. If the
      government becomes the lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for
      law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; …it invites anarchy.”

      Therefor CHOOSE…and so PROFIT or be DAMNED Thereby…What say You?

        @ JustOneGuy. If you see this please let us know about the Solar activity. It is dead right now during a solar maximum, just like before the Carrington event of 1859. There are many in the astronomy community that think the Sun is building up for something quite large, as in a solar flare and a planet wide EMP. What do you think about this.

        Did you see the second major earthquake that was accurately predicted on Comment# 2435660, Please check this out when you can and see all the danger areas as you may be in one of them. The earthquake forecasting is really getting accurate, 6.7 Kamchatka Penisula, 6.7 in far northern New Zealand, and the 7.0 in peru were all accurately forecasted. The 7.8 in Pakistan I thought was going to be on the eastern part of the Australian plate, not the western. More is still coming. Let me know what you think of these predictions as I have refined my earthquake forecasting since you last commented on a regualr basis months ago.

        I sure hope you can communicate on a regular basis soon, your intelligent insight is solely missed by me and all of us.

          Geez…Apologies here all, two LONG ones in a single thread; BI, we;ve GOT to stop meeting like this!! ;)

          Here goes…the formatting may be screwed tonight…

          Good Evening BI,

          A surfeit of battery power allows me to here ‘weigh-in’ this eve..

          I DID indeed see your prediction vindicated Friend…Need I say
          ‘Congratulations”…AGAIN for the Umpteenth time? ;) BI, you are
          our very own site-treasure, ‘Well-Done’ Friend.

          It appears that a repeat of the events post-April 27th this
          Spring past is afoot. I recommend refering to out dialogues from
          that time for I can add little else here. It may be that – inasmuch
          as we KNOW that there ARE dynamic deep-Earth ‘structures’ which have
          some permananece (think here the of frequent deep-earth manifetations
          near to Fiji or the mantle plume underlyiing Yellowstone) that there
          are other regions where such exists as well. Specifically, I might
          sugget that the deep earth bebeath the basin which contains the Sea
          of Ohkhotsk is onesuch, Eh? For we are now seeing exactly the same
          manifestations there that we did in the Spring,,,post-April 27th.
          This is an exciting time actually…we are witnessing something
          wholly ‘New’ here, something which has certainly occured before this
          time but was NOT previosuly ‘apprehended by us!; A ‘New’ thing
          therefor! I presume you have NOTED the sudden increase in deep-focus
          events since the high magnitude GRB some 36 hours ago? I beleive
          you shall be ‘busier’ than is the norm, for some few days to
          come, seismically that is. Eyes Open. here methinks.

          The Sun…it is not the case – in any fixed period – that the Sun
          MUST evince any particular behaviour(s). The notion that a prior
          prediction that we are nearing a relative ‘Solar Maxima itself
          implies that the relaive ‘hiatus’ that we are currently observing
          itself implies that at some future time the Sun will suddenly disgorge
          a corresponding ‘balancing’ burst of energy does NOT Follow here; the
          train of implication in that thinking is flawed. We have spoken before
          about Humankind’s limited grasp of the many and varied processes
          which are yet a mystery to us, Yes?

          All that we see of late STRONGLY suggest that a distinct ‘Solar
          Minima’ is nascent, presently. Indeed, there could yet be relatively
          high-magnitude phenomena generated thereby but the average trend at
          this time almost certianly will be to the diminutive, ie, decreasing.
          IF this pattern continues we will presently see less and less,
          distinctly indentifiable spot groups on the visible Solar Face until
          finally, for a protracted period ther are NONE; thqat i NORMAL for a
          protracted minima such as the Maunder; this should be also be taken
          as ‘definitive’ where this prognostication is concerned. If instead,
          this observed trend is not seen then ‘all bets are off’, for in
          truth nothing relative to the current Solar cycle has been what we
          were expecting thus far, what was aniticpated: this cycle should now
          be nearing a relative maxima; it is not. A myriad number of other
          things which should have by now manifested, have not.

          The soul of scientific prediction lies in infering future events
          based on prior ones; the obvservation and determination of
          chracteristic patterns from which we draw valid conclusions; this
          is predicated on there being some relative ‘normalcy’… a reptitive
          series of events from which to base a prediction. Presently, there
          is an insufficiency of the ‘expected’ to be able to do so. This may
          be a simple consequence of the limits of our (historical) knowledge
          of the Sun’s behaviour long-term…it may be something otherwise,
          again, time WILL tell here. Please to note here BI that I SELDOM
          ‘go out on a limb’ in predicting anything…the preceding should
          therefor be viewed as a measure of my convictions here, Yes?

          IMHO, we will hereafter proceed – within a standard year – into
          a period of extraordinary Solar quiecence…a very, very ‘quiet’ Sun.
          We shall see…will we not? Need I mention that IF SO, then all the
          hou-hah about ‘Global Warmning;’ WILL ‘go out the Window’ as the mean
          planetray temps fall in spite of what mere Humankind does here.

          Again, “Congratulations BI… Job Well-Done Friend.”

          Tis late, and this day was a bit more strenous than have been the
          last few, thereor I will bid you ‘Good Night’. I will ‘check in’ on
          things in general over the next two days. Adios All.

          As an aside to a poster below; your point is well-taken, but not all those of a Chrstioan bent are fundamentally intolerant; that appears more an issue of Islam than anything in Christianity. Aside from THAT, we must all learn to get along with each other, everywehere …else things are going to get very, VERY bad…very soon. There is room for discussion here, No?

His communications is limited at this point but being a genius like yourself you can imagine he is working on alternate means to rectify his problems. But rest assured all is well.

          It’s not actually dead or dormant. The filament launch Sunday night/ Monday that will glance us on Sep 2-3 is evidence of that. That Sun is finishing a pole flip, happens every Max, and the filament launch indicates to me that things are getting back to a more active state. Several days ago, NY experienced a power outage. On the USGS geomagnetism monitoring page, it indicates we had quite a sustained impact, disturbing all the monitoring stations during that power outage.
          http://geomag.usgs.gov/realtime/

          So, no, the Sun is not “dormant” as many falsely think.

      “Shine On You Crazy okie”

      When things get overwhelming, I used to practice ‘ammo therapy.’ Now it’s too expensive, or impossible to find the ammo. So, to keep what’s left of my sanity, I’ve developed a new 3-step technique. I call it ‘Shine therapy.’
      It involves:
      1- Re-bluing a barrel or two
      2- A dab of silver polish and a couple of one-ounce rounds (coins)
      3- A sip from a mason jar.

      The whole process takes only a few minutes and it get’s me right back to equilibrium. (or as close as I’ve ever been) Best of all- there’s nothing to buy. Already got all the components on hand.
      Chances are, many of you do too. Try it. See if it doesn’t help. Oh, and it’s okay to repeat step 3 as often as needed.

        I sort of have conrumdom about the ammo expenditure right now, should I go to the range and check my zero’s on my MBR’s or conserve for the up coming festivities. .308 is rather expensive and in short supply for range expended replacement. Being one of those furloughed federal workers right now does not help. Kind of ironic huh ? Federal contract worker and a prepper.
        I think this is a good time to take a stock and be thankful for what I have.

          old guy, I disagree with you. Government and taxation is a necessity of a civilized society. A military is necessary to secure the safety of that society. You can say that society parasites their safety off of others sacrifice. There will always be a military in one form or another, being it a gang, a militia, a warlord. A civilized society raises and funds a military for it’s own protection from those gangs and warlords. The parasites are in fact those that never served but enjoy the security that others have provided. You may disagree with the politicians and the direction that they have taken things but most that volunteer to serve in the military do not do so for politics and so far they have given security to us here in the States.

          The military’s job is security, the civilian’s job is freedom. The civilians of this country have failed in their job. We are where we are at because of the bad choices and the cowardliness of the civilian population to hold their chosen leaders accountable and now the political leadership has grown into a powerful beast that can’t be controlled. The military may end up being our only savior and with the recent rash of firings of the top military brass, Obama realizes this too.

              I know exceedingly little about the military compared to many here.

              “2 Marine generals fired over base attack, Taliban entered NATO airfield in Afghanistan, killing 2 destroying jets”

              The Commandant of the Marine Corps, Gen. James F. Amos, fired MGen. Charles Gurganus and MGen. Gregg Sturdevant … because the successful attack “reflected poor judgment in officers of their rank.”

              today’s Washington Post, article by Rajiv Chandrasekaran, October 1, front page.

              To this ignorant outsider it looks like the Marine Corps has a kick ass Commandant.

              Failure in the military has consequences at all ranks. Too bad it has so little in civilian life.

                Rich98, there was a time when they used to, when there were fewer bureaucratic problems in doing so. Within the past 20 years, the bureaucratic BS at VA has gotten so bad they became discouraged from going to VA for any reason. VA nowadays gives the vets all kinds of reasons for doing so. Since those times, my vet relatives have totally discouraged their sons and daughters from joining the military. Look at how the govt. treats them after they leave the service. In some ways, it’s a good thing I never had kids. I wouldn’t have let my kids join and get used as cannon fodder for the NWO either. Every vet of every branch of service knows what a joke the VA is. I’ve even heard some interesting stories from a former VA doctor that would make your blood boil. I agree that no veterans are ever leeches. None of them could ever be compensated enough for what they’ve been through. The leeches are the welfare queens, drug addicts and alcoholics, people who live better than I do who play the system at YOURS AND MINE expense, corrupt politicians and bureaucrats, etc. THOSE are the kind of people who need to be cut off entirely from the system. Let the f#$%in leeches starve to death. They deserve it. What this country needs is a good does of Pepto Bismol and totally shit itself out; total cleanout of the nation. The nation has diarrhea. Diarrhea can stay in your system for only so long. braveheart

But the fact is most get every penny they paid back with interest in within 5 years. and don’t bring up that if they had took that same money and invested it themselves the return would have been greater. Most wouldn’t have anything if they hadn’t been forced to contribute through payroll tax deductions. Myself the majority I paid both halves since I was largely self employed. Ill be happy if I get back what I paid into the fund. After I recoup what I personally paid in Yes Ill live with it. And yes Ill freely admit my social security is money robbed from a producer and freely admit that im being a enabled parasite

              Read one or both before your mouth platitudes about who was serving whom or what.

              I disagree with anyone being categorized as “unproductive” on superficial grounds. Maybe that man in a wheelchair can’t climb a mountain. But he can play a piano like nobody’s business and teach it.

              Who decides what makes a person “worthless?”

              I do agree that wars trumped up on the slightest pretexts are stupid enterprises that waste human lives and other productive resources. And benefit nobody other than the billionaire banksters.

              Maybe for the first time in your life ask yourself who or what were they “serving?”

              If you dare ask the question honestly you might find the answer unsettling.

              “Thank you for your service?” To whom or what?

              The knee jerk warmongers won’t like this post. I can’t say that I care. Please don’t retort with the patent nonsense that “you were fighting for our freedom” because you were doing no such thing.

            Unacceptable? well I suppose it hits a nerve. However Its a fact that the productive are the only ones who actually are robbed when they pay taxes. If the income comes from government coffers those folks actually pay zero tax. Shure they pay sales tax, property tax, income tax ect. However since their income is derived from the public coffers it must first be robbed fron a producing maker before it is redistributed to them. Or in the case of the borrowed money It is a tax on some future producing maker. So whatever taxes those on the public payroll incidentally pay is simply a recycling of money already Robbed (taxed) from the producers. Its like getting a dollar for free and paying a 10 cent handling fee. When we have a large number of high paid producers and a small number of parasites that’s a luxury the economy &government can afford. Now with the middle class almost extinct the government has a shortfall. Not enough producers to rob and redistribute from. And too many parasites with their hands out. So now the US government borrows 40 cents of every dollar spent. Too many parasites are slowly killing the host. If that fact hurts some feelings and incites some to anger and name calling that’s Ok. Think whatever you want & wish your the one who has to live with the results.

              I am sorry that a kid going into the military does not understand that he is just ‘gun fodder’ for TPTB, he has been brain washed to believe in the “rah,rah,rah”. How many years did it take you to figure out that you had been used the same way?

              The way our government is treating our returning vets is a damned shame. When the shtf those vets are going to be on our side; you may see the day when you welcome their help.

              If you think I know nothing about paying my share; not so. I opened 6 fitness franchises in a period of 6 years. Worked my ass off (literally and figuratively). One year I wrote a check to the thieves at the Internal Revenue for $90,000. How painful do you think that was. How disgusted do you think I felt knowing what rathole that money was destined for.

              My only hope, Old Guy, is that some of it went to help a crippled kid, a returning vet, a single mom trying to get her education and make something of herself.

              Are there people playing the system amongst us? Sure are. And always will be until we get our useless government straightened out. The government loves those players; keeps our evil politicians in a job.

              I don’t know how we put a stop to everything that is evil in this country. Prayer seems to be the only hope now.

My property taxes paid to the county are used for Without the road tax the road to my land wouldn’t exist. and by and large our local elected officials are fiscally responsible. We get a good return for out tax dollar. Its necessary to have a certain amount of government. The best government governs the least. however even though they are earning their pay it still is derived from the producers & and their still parasites. If the USA starts another war and brings back the draft I would support draft dogers. That whole middle east isn’t worth the life of even one persons son or daughter. parents should encourage their children to shun the military, doing the bitting of the UN & NWO is never going to make anyone safe or solve any problems.

              That is sad. However life isn’t fair just and sometimes just plain sucks. I never stated parasites where evil bad or undeserving. I simply stated that there are too many parasites and too few producers. What happened was the producers started asking themselves why? Why produce when the fruits of my labor are robbed (taxed) and redistributed to those who had ought naught to ddo with my production.. Then the part Im allowed to keep has to compete against that which was robbed from me for the same goods & services. Myself I quit producing more than just to meet my basic needs. we used to spend about $30,000 every spring just planting crops. grossing $100,000 and just swapping nickles. I drove truck and The wife worked part time to buy groceries and pay the bills. So we simply quit. Downsized & relocated sold the big house. Auctoned off the equipt & cattle. we now have a small 1000 sq ft house and grow a garden ect. I quit driving truck. and the wife let someone else have the part time job. We sold some land got out of debt and rented the rest of the land to another nickel swapper. We can live on $100 per week. I hope to become a parasite soon.

        John,there has to be a happy medium between abandonment of people and the insanity in place right now.Folks talk about a social safety net,we need a social trampoline to get those back that can working and fending for themselves and family and perhaps in moments of kindness doing the same for others when in that position.I look at a service injury same as any work though different circumstances obviously,workmans compensation,you earned it by being injured at work,just hope you find something you enjoy doing and can move forward and perhaps along the way help others.By limiting in many ways taxes/duplicate non necc regulation ect,ending crony capatilism we could as a country get our economy actually on a decent track,best of luck in your life John.

          I like the social trampoline analogy. I keep thinking that if the government could focus on providing education (work training programs, paying for some college in medical, technical, engineering and science, and/or vocational schools) we could get people into jobs with decent pay and benefits and out of government programs. Many who are in the social safety net don’t want to be there, they just don’t have many options.

          Thanks Ugly, we in Aussie wish you guys well too – the “Family” that is, all the parasites, leeches, druggies, crims and various other oxygen thieves can find out the hard way their days of being part of the entitlement class are over. Sooner or later – sooner I’m guessing – it will be a case of produce or perish. The perish part will be either turning your toes up because the gubbermint has stopped giving you an armchair ride or ballistically coz a prepper decided a dirtbag trying to loot his home/retreat was expendable. How many will go from leech to producer? Some can and will but just in the circle of people I know that percentage will be tiny. A couple I’ll take on board but most will get the message pronto that I aint their keeper.

            Hey Old Guy, I was making a distinction between deserving and non deserving. Like the US, we have a significant number, or percentage, of people who have the attitude that the system can look after them, that they are “entitled” to be looked after because, well, because the system can be abused and they have no conscience about abusing it. Those I consider parasites and I wouldnt lift a finger to help other than to flip the bird.

            On the other side of the coin there are people who through no fault of their own will always struggle, but struggle and try they do, and occasionally will need the welfare safety net. I’m happy with that. And there are other welfare recipients though who deserve all they get – injured Vets, disabled, people who are sick or injured through no fault of their own – and they should get it. Thats what defines us as a society and as members of humanity.

            When or if TSHTF we as preppers will be faced with people from all levels and for my part, the really decent and honest folks should be assisted whenever and wherever possible but the lawless, parasitic, evil, depraved people who will see TSHTF event as an excuse to loot, rape, murder – well, there is only one reasonable outcome for them – permanent removal.

            Hope I wasnt misunderstood and hope I havent misunderstood you.

              Its all well and good to have the mindset that When or if TSHTF The really decent & honest folk will be assisted. What Defines us as a society & members of humanity is a good question. The way things are Punish By taxing & robbing the successful and rewarding the failure,s. Call it social engineering or government playing Robin Hood , that policy is regressive and not sustainable. Simply put the too few producers cannot carry the burden of the parasites any longer. When of if TSHTF the choice of who is a deserving parasite and who isn’t wont be made by the government playing Robin Hood. It will be made by the productive family friends ect of that parasite. Back in the 1800,s In the native American tribes the old and unfit would be left out to perish. Before autopsies a lot of elderly and sickly where smothered in bed with a pillow by their caretakers. I bet we will see a return of that policy. We will likely very soon see a return of the 1800,s life style. So its a good question Do you keep everyone alive no matter what and let all perish. Or do you simply accept the survival of the fittest? In the end it will become survival of the fittest anyway. You gotta admit what we now are doing isn’t progress its a dismal failure.

    10. As He was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things happen, and what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”

      And Jesus answered and said to them, “See to it that no one misleads you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will mislead many. You will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes. But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs.

      “Then they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations because of My name. At that time many will fall away and will betray one another and hate one another. Many false prophets will arise and will mislead many. Because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold.

      —>>> But the one who endures to the end, he will be saved. <<>> THIS gospel <<<— of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come." Matthew 24:3-14

      "Now learn the parable from the fig tree: when its branch has already become tender and puts forth its leaves, you know that summer is near; so, you too, when you see all these things, recognize that He is near, right at the door. Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place." Matthew 24:32-34

      Fall Military Draft Begins With Warnings of Hazing
      01 October 2013 | Issue 5224
      By Natalya Krainova

      The Defense Ministry is expected to call up about 150,000 young men for military service during the fall draft that begins Tuesday, amid contradictory reports about the scale of hazing in the army, a problem that has long plagued Russia’s armed forces and led to draft dodging.
      In accordance with the decree signed by President Vladimir Putin on Thursday, military officials must draft 150,030 young men between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31.

        In the 1990′s the stock market was fat, unemployment was low and labor was in demand. You could put $10.00 in the market and turn it into $100.00 in a short time without having much if any experience, remember the term “Irrational exuberance”. During this time I mentioned to my wife that something was up, that we are being fattened up to keep us preoccupied. There were laws changed and enacted that should have been on the radar but were ignored because we were too busy making irrational exuberance.
        I mentioned to her that history is rhyming. The early part of the 1890′s had a recession, the later part of the 1890′s the market was roaring and the industrialist were making money, there was irrational exuberance, then we had some small wars for about 10 – 15 years, a recession/mini depression during that time and then WWI.

        PO’d Patriot: some of the Blame should be leveled at those subversive folks from Frankfurt school, which trained their “students” to make use of Cultural Communisim against all of the american peoples ever since frankfurt relocated HQ opps from germany in 1933 and came here to usa to set up shop on the Sly.

        When the entire nation of usa folks including Our parents and even grandparents(if a boomer yourself) were culturally changed without our and their knowledge of it taking place. Subversive seems too nice a word for such swindlers as frankfurt advocates.

        Its really no different than say a war vet taken prisoner, brainwashed, and hes like a whole different person afterwards right. Yet nobody can rightfuly blame that vet prisoner as it was all done without his knowing of it.

        Maybe Thats the Main reason so many generations of americans before our gens never acted as badly or stupidly as our gens has. Because we were Unknowingly Brainwashed by cultural communisim done by subversive evil minded kommies, whos plans all along were to overtake usa society and remake it into what was never intended to be by the generations before ours.

        If you need more expert essay info on frankfurt school methods so affaecting us folks Today, I have a Link to an 1999 essay article written by a us naval comnder guy.

        Its a single long page essay and explaines it all from the birth idea of frankfurt school idology, when it began in 1923 germany by “intelectuals”(bolshevik kommies) and how it Moved to usa in 1933 to begin their evil work here against Us folks. Its also the Main major cause and reason for what we know as the “modern Liberation Femminist Movement” that has done More dammages to us and usa than most every other Leftist agenda combined has!

      @ The Voice from the Outer World (Aka JustOneGuy). Thank you for the long explanation on the Sun. I was really wondering about all the talk in the space world about the Sun. Predicting the furture from past events probably is flawed with the Sun for because there is just not enough data from the large events to conclude anything. It sure works with earthquake forecasting though. Plates follow a pattern that changes very little over decades. Have an earthquake on a major plate boundary then a major quake and usually in the future when you have it in the same location the major quake will also be in one of previous major quake areas. With the Sun, the changes are much over decades, and the patterns followed might be highly variable.

      The Sun could be going through a decades long dimished period of activity and we could be seeing this right now. A sudden build up though is possible though and people still need to be aware of this, like back 9 years ago when the planet missed a mega event by 2 or 3 days of rotation of the Sun. I think the one issue we all need to be very concerned with if the Sun goes blank for a long time is climate here on the planet. During ice age periods the real contributing factor as been solar output, the lack of it.

      In regards to Christians and islam, I have to admit it upsets me a lot when I see totally peaceful people like the Coptic Christians be attacked over and over again because of their belief. Anyone can be intolerate of another, it is how they act on it. Ostracizing someone, snubbing them, is not a crime. For me there is a difference between acceptance and tolerance. Like on South Park they said you don’t have to accept a screaming and crying infant on an airplace, you just tolerate it. With islam, as long as the child is not muslim, their idea of tolerance is to put a plastic bag over the infant until the noise goes away.

      I hope you continue to be able to communicate with the site, it is so nice to hear from you again.

I average 18 to 20 MPH with quarter mile bursts of 30 MPH.(not as easy as you think) My stomach is flat as a fritter by doing inversion table sit ups. If you are not in absolute top shape by now you are way behind the curve. My main worry is being nailed by a car. :)

          Put that way, who isn’t full of it? Agreed, sugar is very bad for you, and most of us have done a lot of bad things to ourselves (not just the consumption of sugar), and as we grow old, the chickens come home to roost. If only we knew what we do to ourselves at a physical, mental, and spiritual level. But, it is never too late to change our ways for the better. As long as there is life, there is hope. Keep prepping and working on that healthy life-style. You are more likely to survive the Zombie invasion if you are fit in every way. We have so much/many resources at our disposal, we just need to be more creative and find ways to be more creative.

            I had a Buddy in detroit who did all that weight lifting body builder stuff too. He was 45 yrs old and looked like early Arnold swartzenegger Movies such as Connan the Barbarian….Untill without warning a huge car slammed the side of his harely as he crossed on a Green light with right of way in His favor.

            After his leg was amputated above the knee, it just never was the same even being so fit and muscular.

            I rekon regardless What good stuff you do, you just never really know whats next.

          I have herniated disc in my lumbar section and stenosis in my neck. My knees used to hurt so bad I thought I would die. They healed up. I don’t run because it hurts my back but I can hike as long as I want. When your truck runs out of gas what is your backup plan? If your knees are worn out maybe it’s time for replacements? Do you wear athletic shoes or work boots? Work boots are murder on the knees. If the cartilage is gone then yes there is no point in running, biking or hiking. Do the best you can with what you have. ;)

            I’ve heard that question since high school, when I got the nickname. I don’t drink alcohol, but in HS, I got caught with my boyfriends beer in my locker. I was supposed to bring it to him after school. People ribbed me for the rest of the year for getting caught, whispering “sixpack” as they walked past me as a reminder.

            When I was young I had “sixpack abs” and when I worked as a heavy construction carpenter, it only accentuated them more. Of course I lost all of that at 47 years old when I suffered a serious back injury, a ruptured disk and permanent nerve damage to my neck.

      The government shutdown sure has not, as of yet, affected the stock market, the dow is up this morning. This was a key to what many republicans were looking for to hold out as long as possible against BO care. As long as the business world was not too damaged by the shut down, stick to your principles that BO care is crap.

      Now the issue of default is an entirely different story in a little over 2 weeks. The debt ceiling not being raised would prevent BO and helicopter ben from running the country over the cliff for awhile. Of course it would lower the credit rating for the U.S. dollar. Something has to be done to stop this whacked out spending of the government.

      Most people overlook night vision equipment in their survival planning. Don’t make that mistake. Even if you have to get the cheapest hand held NV device, get it. The government almost always attacks in the dark. It is to their advantage. I was in 2 different armies in my career. One of those armies was based around the light infantry. We always did “stand to” just before dawn and just at dark. Prime times for enemy attacks. “Stand to” is basically everyone in the unit armed and ready to repulse a surprise attack. When the Feds attacked at Waco, they (Feds) were not prepared for the robust defense that awaited them. Had the people inside counter-attacked when the Feds retreated, Their probably wouldn’t have been any Fed survivors.

This cancer will eventually consume itself into chaos. Good luck to all with your preps. The bigger the cancer grows the more tyrannical, psychotic and violent it will become and it will consume everything in its path. Be prepared and stay out of its path. Don’t call attention to yourself and keep your preps private. As I said before, the government, at all levels consists of your friends, neighbors and family members and this doesn’t include all the non-government people drawing disability, social security, food stamps, welfare etc… and when they have to choose between their job or check and you, they will rat you out every time.

      Just a couple 100 watt solar panels cost you about $136 each (including shipping) on Ebay and a couple 12 volt deep cycle batteries and you can run several 12 volt LED lights in your home. And IF you want to get fancy buy 4- 100 watt solar panels and 4 – 12 volt deep cycle batteries and you can power a 12 volt electric blanket (which you can buy at about any truck stop or Ebay) for about $50 and that way you can stay toasty warm on the coldest winter nights.
      I know I use a 12 volt electric blanket the last 2 winters and it works great. With that much power you can have a 12 volt coffee pot, 12 volt clocks, 12 volt fans etc. For cooking check out the solar cookers, but you need a sunny day for that to work.

            When all such Manger/Jesus type decorations were halted it was told to us all that it is due to it being a “religious” symbol. So what do the followers of a Minorah candle holder symbol believe That is if not a religious symbol?

            Some folks have said that 95 ft tall Minorah erected during Christmass season is simply the Talmudic jewish zionists way of throwing it into Our Faces that They are who truely own and control America now.

      The Fed is creating a lot more than a trillion new dollars every year. It’s about a trillion just buying toxic mortgages. It’s about another trillion to fund the deficit by buying whatever new bonds the treasury can’t sell at artificially low interest rates and old bonds being redeemed. That’s not counting money they create to prop up the municipal bond market and providing liquidity to foreign banks. Altogether there are countless tens of trillions of dollars out there that will hit the US economy like a tsunami when the world dumps the dollar. Someday soon we could wake up to $10 gasoline.

      “How likely is it that such events will come to pass? Every century we’ve seen widespread war, famine, and destruction. Thus, the odds are pretty good we’re going to see it again in our lifetimes.”

      Let do a little math in relation to history, real history, not then crap they are teaching our children and see how true the above statement is.

      We’ll start a about a couple hundred years ago.

      Around the early 1770′s the revolutionary war starts. Now go forward 80 years and were in the 1850′s. Recall the civil war was fought around this time. If we get back in the time machine and move forward another 80 years we find ourselves smack dab in the middle of a world of shit called world war I & II. Jump back in our time machine and jump ahead 80 more years and guess what, you are checking days off your very own calendar today.

      No rocket science here folks in order to say to yourself it might be a good idea to prep a few things just in case history repeats. Remember over 100 million people died from these events when world population was barely 1 billion. That works out to 1 billion dead this time based on the current population. My guess it will be much more, after all we are far more proficient at killing people and the population has been molded into killing. After all the list of threats has been never ending for 10 years now.

      Want more info on this subject read “The Forth Turning”. It is very enlightening.

      The next big question is- What will the survivors be doing to sustain themselves? Besides farming Amish-style? Surely some sort of society will emerge and civilization will return. So what are the jobs gonna be?
      The following comes from the Post Apocalypse Vocational Training Institute, Inc. They have a few suggestions for employment in the future…

      Medicine- People are always gonna be getting hurt or sick, so future employment trends in this area look good. Doctors in the New America, however will need to shift their focus from treating gunshot wounds to the more common ailments. Stuff like suturing bear-claw lacerations, treating rabies and, of course setting broken limbs. It’ll be a good idea to know how to grow, harvest or make most of your own medicines. Better bone up now while the information is readily available. And don’t bother learning how to write prescriptions. That probably won’t be necessary.

      Mechanic- Maybe not the kind to run a computer diagnostic system for an SUV, more like knowing how to make wooden wheel spokes. A knowledge of blacksmithing would come in handy for this profession as well. In areas where coal and wood are plentiful, boilermakers and steamfitters should find ample employment opportunities.

      Preserving Food- Yes, there will soon be a need to preserve and transport food to the towns and villages. Better start saving empty jelly jars and egg cartons for future use. We’ll be needing a lot of them. Some food, of course, will transport itself to market. In which case butchering skills will be in high demand.

      Also, we forecast robust growth in the food preparation industry. Grain milling should see improvement. Also bread baking, wild berry harvesting, and fermentation skills will be in high demand.

      And just so you don’t waste time and money learning useless skills, we predict a high level of unemployment in the following professions:

      Interior Decorating
      Manicurist
      Pizza Delivery
      Window Washing
      Flight Attendant
      Smart-Phone AP Developing
      Professional Athlete
      and above all…. Banking

      Highest areas of job growth are:
      Gunsmithing
      Rustic Carpentry
      Blacksmithing
      Hide Tanning
      Chinese Language Translation

        “Chinese Language Translation” could be in high demand.

        I’ve been growing medicinal herbs for a number of years and have spent the last couple of days storing up this years harvest.

        I’ve noticed a really weird things with plants around here…they are coming back from the roots and putting on new leaf buds..as though it were Spring instead of Fall.

        The Monday before the “biblical flooding” in Co. my area got hit with an incredible hail storm that left 1/2 inch of hail everywhere. My plants got annihilated. Now everything is coming back up.

        Anybody know if this will hurt the plants in the long run? They should be going into hibernation.

          As long as they don’t put out a whole lot of growth, they will probably be fine. A few new leaves will get frosted, but the roots are probably in fine shape for next years growth. If you have carrots and turnips, you could probably mulch them with a 6 inch layer of straw, and pull what you needed before the ground freezes. Otherwise, pull your veggies and put them in a root cellar of some sort…;) hope that helps a little.

          One of my 7th and 8th grade teachers had a hide tanning tool. It was 3/4 inch thick and drilled full of holes. The teacher was a stocky man with muscles. He had quite a backhand with the “board of education.”

        I believe knife and tool sharpening will be in big demand. You use blades almost every day. If you get the proper equipment, you can even sharpen carbide table saw blades. There is an article on survivalblog about what tools you need for different levels of sharpening, from bug-out bag to professional sharpening establishment.

        I have some of the stones and files, but I need a few more items.

        It’s funny that my wife and I were discussing this the other day, and then the article appeared on survivalblog. It’s like magic.

          Archivist,a friend picked up a large/tip broken old mill file almost 2-1/2 “wide x almost 13″ long at a yard sale for a buck,tip was broken off,slowly hand ground it into one hell of a knife,said was steel from Germany a long time ago,keeping my eyes open for such humble beginnings to try my hand at it.I made him some rough mahogany blanks for handles,still waiting to see final results of this full tang knife.I am giving consideration to making a small forge if time permits.I was lucky enuff to see a master sword builder from Japan at Boston MFA make over a month a sword,stopped by during lunch everyday to watch the progress and got to shake his hand,thru his interpreter/sponsor found out I was one of a few that came by daily throughout the process,amazing how many times the material is heated/folded before even beginning to be a sword,a true craftsman.

          When your paring knife gets dull, just run it across the bottom of a ceramic cup about 10 times on each side–instant sharpener. And I am not paying for your cut fingers!!!

      Preppers and All Americans.

      I wish all folks luck that want to preserve America. All folks by Blacks, Hispanics, Whites, Indians, Asians, and so forth. I wish our friends from Canada and Australia and other locales well also.

      The times of troubles are coming and coming very fast. We are the Paul Revere’s of todays America; thus we must give the warning calls to those that have a willing ear.

      Gotto go to work up to DuBoise (google map DuBoise, Idaho if you want to) for rest of day and won’t be back until tonite. Maybe I’ll see Smokin at Sage Junction?

      I went for a good 10 mile jog this morning. Beautiful air, and beautiful flowers on the greenbelt. I realized again just how great America is. It is worth our efforts of saving it. Good luck to all….

        Thanks Ugly, we in Aussie wish you guys well too – the “Family” that is, all the parasites, leeches, druggies, crims and various other oxygen thieves can find out the hard way their days of being part of the entitlement class are over. Sooner or later – sooner I’m guessing – it will be a case of produce or perish. The perish part will be either turning your toes up because the gubbermint has stopped giving you an armchair ride or ballistically coz a prepper decided a dirtbag trying to loot his home/retreat was expendable. How many will go from leech to producer? Some can and will but just in the circle of people I know that percentage will be tiny. A couple I’ll take on board but most will get the message pronto that I aint their keeper.

          Aussie,

          I have bought enough seeds for about 100 acres of gardens. They are to share if the neighbors are willing.

          In Idaho, we are lucky. Specifically Eastern Idaho that is from American Falls-Pocatello-Ashton (known as the Eastern Snake River Plain). There are about 450,000 people in this area and about 350,000 acres of potatoes and about 1 million acres of wheat. So people should have some food if they are willing to work with farmers to get some.

          My area of Idaho is beautiful. Sun Valley and Targhee skiing just an hour or so away. Jackson Hole WY not too far. Yellowstone National Park is only 2 hours. Plus we have the mountain ranges of Sawtooth, Teton, Bitterroot, Salmon, Wasatch, all nearby.

          If and when shtf, I hope we can all work together and make sure food and water is available. No it wont be fun, but at least folks will get some daily needs. Maybe I am just wishful thinking?

          What troubles me is that it is very possible that UN type military will be policing those supplies.

          Australia is cool. I am a runner and am a fan of two or your running legends–Percy Cerutty and Herb Elliot. They, along with Arthur Lydiard of new Zealand, so of fashioned running and training as it is today.

          If you are ever in my neck-of-the-woods, let me know, I’ll buy the first Fosters.

            Hey Ugly

            I’ll take you up on that. I had planned to be in Eye-dee-ho this Christmas but I have ailing parents and cant really afford to be away for a few weeks, just in case y’know …. I am planning a lion hunt, will have to wait till next year now I reckon.

            I got to Boise at Christmas 97 but the snow stopped me getting to Ketchum and Sun Valley (a Hemingway fan from way back). Coldest I have ever been is Twin Falls on the same trip!!

            Percy Cerutty huh? – what an inspiration! Had all sorts of problems and decided if he was gunna go he was gunna go doing something. When he started in his 50′s he was barely able to walk to his letterbox and within a few years he was taking our top level footballers on conditioning runs up sandhills on our beaches and getting to the top before all bar the very very best of ‘em! Herb had a heart attack not long ago – they believe due to damage caused when he ran at high altitude (Mexico???) when he wasnt conditioned for it.

            Keep your powder dry Ugly and hopefully Mac can put us in touch with each other (my email address on my posts is genuine and I am more than happy for Mac to give it to you you).

      The Bank of International Settlements:

      The article presented here says the Bank of International Settlements (the central bank of central banks) have told central banks around the world to quit lending.

      In 1930 the Bank of International Settlements was established by Charles G. Dawes (Rothschild agent and Vice President under Coolidge 1925-1929), by Owen D. Young (Rothschild agent and founder of RCA and chairman of General Electric 1922-1939), and Hjalmar Schacht of Germany (President of Reischsbank).

      The Bank of International Settlements is referred to by bankers as the “central bank of central banks”. Whereas the International Monetary Fund and World Bank deal with governments the Bank of International Settlements deals only with other central banks.

      All meetings are held in secret and involve top central bankers around the world.

      The BIS has status of a soverign power and is immune from government control

      Diplomatic immunity for persons and what they carry (ie. diplomatic pouches)

      No taxation on any transactions including salaries for employees

      Embassy type immunity for all buildings operated by BIS worldwide including Mexico and China

      No oversite or knowledge of operations by any government authority. They are not audited

      Freedom from immigration restrictions

      Freedom to encrypt any and all communication of any sort

      Freedom from any legal jurisdiction, they even have their own police force

      Wikipedia has info on the Bank of International Settlements and of course the US Federal Reserve is listed.
