Americans Fail to See Risk in the System, As Markets Implode: “Like Sheep to Slaughter”

Editor’s Comment: Contrary to the popular notion, everything is NOT OK. With all the major world events headed our way, individuals must make preparations for disruptions at banks, with cards and ATMs, and with society in general. Ready yourself for what preppers do best – stay out of the fray and ride out the storm with dignity and personal security. Food, gold/silver and barter items (like cigarettes) could become critical for currency, exchange and getting necessities to your family.

Nobody knows what is coming next, but the financial and economic system appears to be headed for stormy weather. As Brandon Smith argued in his most recent article, this society is simply not set-up for or prepared for economic disruptions in any way. The slightest pressure is going to trigger riots, unrest and violence. Looters may target those they believe to have valuable supplies or stored wealth. Things can and will get ugly really quickly when the moment comes… a moment which no one knows for sure, as Mike Adams explains here:

Like sheep to slaughter: You still aren’t grasping the systemic risk in the stock market (or else you would have sold everything already)

by Mike Adams

If you still own stocks and mutual fund shares, you still aren’t grasping the systemic risk in the stock market. No matter what you claim to BELIEVE, it is your ACTIONS that actually determine your true grasp of reality. Failing to sell all your stock holdings right now could result in massive losses as the world’s bubble markets continue with an implosion that could wipe out 50% of current valuations for many stocks.

The massive market bubble currently in place has been propped up by a steady stream of fiat money being printed by the Federal Reserve and handed out to banksters who have ties to Washington. This, combined with near-zero interest rates, is the only thing propping up the bubble market (and creating the illusion of economic prosperity).

High-tech companies are back into bubble territory with unrealistic valuations based on hype and vapor. Meanwhile, the corrupt mainstream media continues to lie to the gullible public, telling them the market can only go UP… even as it careens on the verge of systemic collapse.

The coming market collapse will be the largest in human history

The systemic nature of the global banking system and its insane derivatives debt means the next collapse will be a SYSTEMIC firestorm that’s unstoppable and absolutely devastating. Pensions, bank accounts, investment funds, bonds and much more will be nearly wiped out, and the corrupt, criminal government regime will make sure everyday Americans are the ultimate losers when the dust settles.

The pathetically stupid and dishonest financial media is desperately running stories right now to maintain false faith in the markets, even while their own people are behind the scenes selling like mad. As long as they can keep the public believing in the “faith” of never-ending cheap money, they can bail out their own positions to suckers and fools who think a tiny dip in a massively overvalued, fraudulent market is a “buying opportunity.”

Watch for desperate headlines from propaganda financial outlets (such as MarketWatch.com) like, “10 reasons you shouldn’t sell” or “The upside potential of the market is HUGE!” These are psychological operations to try to persuade people that the collapse they’re seeing in global markets isn’t actually happening.

    Leave your money in the market, traders/gamblers need your money to feed their addiiction…….

    • john stiner says:

      Anybody else wonder what the real daily percentage in the stock market is?

      The DOW JONES only covers 30 stocks so following them as the true market indicator is rather stupid.

      I want to know what the total percentage from all the stocks did for that day.

      I have yet to find that info.

  2. Hoosier says:

    My wife has about 75,000 in a 401. I have repeatedly urged, suggested, hinted that due to stock market conditions etc, that she either invest in Peter Schiff’s precious metal or just cash it out, take the hit, and pay off her school loan or part of the house. No success and I suppose she’ll lose the whole thing. Any suggestions??

  3. Wilson says:

    Beans, check, PM’s, check, lead, absolutely. Good to go.

  4. John says:

    Many things are going to crash but some will sore due to the nature of things like Gold and Silver stocks. Life will go on, just a lot of pain before things settle down.

  5. Not ready. Check.
    Won’t starve. Check.

  6. Anonymous says:

    This won’t affect anyone but the rich, and they deserve it.

    • Really??? says:

      Why? Because they were savy enough to play the system well enough or be smart enough to do well?

      Really screwed up thinking.

      If you meant to say the banks that have CONgress bought and sold and have manipulated the F out of the market as well as the government tools, then yes – THEY deserve it.

  7. TXPrep says:

    Ya know, I agree that it’s gonna be big and people are lose their asses, just as the author believes. I just wish he would use wording which tends to shore up his obviously strong feelings on this.
    Failing to sell all your stock holdings right now could result in massive losses as the world’s bubble markets continue with an implosion that could wipe out 50% of current valuations for many stocks.
    Why use the word “could” when he seems to know the word should have been “will”?

    • Justice says:

      Sarge and everyone, many people will die of food and water related problems so don’t forget RecoverORS for Hangovers, Food Poisoning, Diarrhea (Used worldwide for Traveler’s Diarrhea, Food Poisoning, Stomach Flu, Fever, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Hangover, Extreme Sports). It’s also good if we have to engage in a lot of physical activity because it offers relief from heat stress, fatigue and muscle cramping.

      Another CHEAPER alternative is Medique Medi-Lyte, 100 Tablets. These over the counter medications can be life savers and are a must for prepers!

    • john stiner says:

      That is just like doctors. They may be fantastic physicians but they are terrible businessmen and wind up closing their practices.

      I gone through 5 different doctors in the last twenty years because they go out of business.

  12. Sgt. Dale says:

    Off Topic.

    I know we have talked about firearms a lot here, but we have never really had a conversation about bows.

    I have two compound bows for me and two for my wife or one for anyone else in the group to use for hunting or last ditch defense use. I shoot a 75LBS bow and my wife shoots a 50Lbs bow. With 125 grain broad head for me and 100 grain broad head for her.

    She has a Commando crossbow, and I have Horton Yukon. We both shoot 125 grain broad heads. She has taken a small deer with hers and so have I. I have also taken a 225lbs pig right though the shoulder.

    Saying all of this I’m looking at getting a new crossbow. I’m looking at a Barnett Raptor. One of the other guys in the group is looking at the Excalibur Matrix 310.

    So I’m asking you folks out there for some advice on Crossbows, Who, What , When, WHY, and How. And your number one choice. Please and Thanks for all advise.


    • Kulafarmer says:

      I like that PSE that connects to an AR style lower, way more power

    • Bows will be a valuable tool when SHTF. I would argue for just a longbow just because of the simplicity and lack of moving parts. Not sure about the crossbow. Seems like it would be too unwieldy in combat

      • The Spartan says:

        For combat you are correct, too long to reload, vs. regular archery. However, it is a perfect stealth hunting weapon. And it will drop anything short of rino at fifty yards. Accuracy is without question also. As far as the best ones go, I buy the cheap ones for around $200. They last forever, easy to restring when needed, and I’d rather have two or more average crossbows than one expensive one. thanks.

  13. Equorial says:

    Why not just ‘up’ your ‘pull’ (100lbs?) …keeping the same grain heads.

    • Sgt. Dale says:


      With my Compounds you can’t run it up to 100LBs. Max is 75LBS on mine and 55LBS on her bow. She has a hard time with 55 LBS trying to draw it. I have drawn 80 bows and they are starting to get very hard for me to draw. 85 LBS would be my limit. I don’t know of any 100 LBS draw bows on the market.


  14. Really??? says:

    Well, another tube of shiny metal arrives today and a couple of coins in a couple of days. Even if the market goes to zero I’m pretty sure my shiny metal will be good.

    I’ll pop my corn, melt some butter and watch the show next to my oak fire.

  15. Equorial says:

    …for what it’s worth to some out there, the art of knife-throwing as a means to inflict death is far easier to learn than shooting a bow, (though I love both bows and X-bows and have them).

    Sarge D., sorry I did not read your last post “all the way”. I use a ‘Grizzly’ crossbow (handed down, over 50yrs old and I use ‘bolts’ rather than arrows). I’ve no proper knowledge of what you seek other than it is NICE and quiet.

    A Run On The Banks Begins In Italy As Italian Banking Stocks Collapse

    h ttp://www.blacklistednews.com/_A_Ru…38/38/Y/M.html

    “At this point, almost all of the major European indexes have entered bear market territory.

    Just check out how far stocks have fallen in some of the largest European nations since their 52-week peak…

    United Kingdom: down 20 percent

    Netherlands: down 22 percent

    France: down 22 percent

    Germany: down 24 percent

    Turkey: down 24 percent

    Italy: down 25 percent

    Sweden: down 25 percent

    Poland: down 26 percent

    Portugal: down 28 percent

    Spain: down 30 percent

    Greece: down 44 percent”

    • Really??? says:


      1 – Glad I don’t have $$$ in Italian banks!!! 🙂

      2 – Glad I don’t have $$$ in US banks because when it arrives here it’ll be too late to get your stuff out and the sheeple will be PISSED!

      • john stiner says:

        The US banks will never have a problem giving people money and they will never close.

        The European Banks are all stuck with the Euro. The Euro member countries won’t allow money printing to cover banks or loser member countries.

        The US loves to print money, as exampled in QE1, QE2, Q3 indefinite.

        If there is a banking collapse, the US will just turn on the printing press.

        That will be MUCH worse than a failed banking system. The money will become worthless. A gallon of milk will cost $100 a loaf of bread will be $50.

        • John Stiner,
          That is hard to imagine. I know it has happened over and over. It is still shocking. Still, when people are dying of no food, I suppose it will be better than nothing. Many people barely make enough to buy food, we would be the same. We have a lot of land here in the US, more people would likely garden. Our gardens have already more than doubled, about 42 million. Will I be a millionaire because I grow food? Sweet!

          • Equorial says:

            REBA! lol….. I reckon you could make yourself a millionairess by just planting ‘weeds’ …about two acres. Then you’ll either be rolling in money or pacing a jail cell?
            I should think that when it comes down to it, ANY type of food would be more than ample to kill for …alternatively it WILL be used (as has always been the way) for bartering and similar ‘events’ of daily life ‘after the crash’.
            Everyone (whomever that is) insists that the upcoming crash is going to make The Great Depression appear as a walk by a serene lake as compared to the horrors that are “all but upon us.”
            I believe that ONLY those who are truly survivalists/hard core will be the majority of the 10% that are expected to survive. (Assuming such a thing truly happens in our lifetimes). After all, people have been warning of “the end of the world” for at least 1800 years ….sure would like to see the books (I mean the contents) that were burnt up in Alexandria, Egypt back before ‘the 1st century’. Same sh*t different era?

            • Equoral,
              Yeah, that whole jail cell thingie… takes some of the flavor out. I couldn’t do 2 acres anyway, wrong climate in these mountains. Cold cold cild.
              We do have all the signs of a global economic crash that is worsening. Although humans get killed off in the millions in genocides around the planet, we have multiplied to over 7 billion.
              I believe in a crash, but not so sure 90 percent of the population will die… it would have to be an EMI or some such. I’d rather pass. But if it does happen, I would want to survive. Either way I like having property in the mountains and gardenu b v

    • Kulafarmer says:

      Yup, what is interesting is we are not seeing it YET,
      Next week?
      Trade halted because of storm?

  17. Godsoldier says:

    Can any cow be used as a milk cow and do they have to have a calf first to start produceing cus milk cheese ect would be of great use and worth

    • Sgt. Dale says:

      Any cow can be milked., but the best milk comes from Holsteins, Jerseys, Guernsey, to name a few. You get much more and better milk from them. The rest are best suited for eating. Yes they need to have a calf.

      • citizen says:

        I might add that the temperament of the cow is important. My angus cross had a calf a month ago. And though friendly, I grab her tits and she’ll put a horn up my ass. Also a cow that is suited for your region. a Jersey doesn’t do well here in AZ because of the heat.

        gonna enjoy eating her in a couple months.

      • PO'd Patriot says:

        I use to date a girl who’s nickname was Guernsey. My father remarked after he met her that she should be a “cheap date” all I had to do was turn her out to graze.

      • didndonuffin says:

        Just don’t drink a bull’s milk.

    • Paranoid says:

      Quality and volume vary a lot. Hosteins give a LOT of milk but it’s fairly low in butterfat, Jerseys give less but it’s richer. Unless you are going to sell it, a small family isn’t going to need anywhere near what a Holstein gives out. More milk they give, the more food they need. To be truthful I don’t care for goats milk much, but you are far better off with a small heard of oats than a cow or two. A goat is much more manageable and you can have several.

  18. Skeptic says:

    All of the contributed articles here seem to be aimed at people who would have all of their funds tied up in the stock market. If one has most bases covered should they really think that never again will cars be sold. No more power grid? Fossil fuels will become obsolete? If you have your bases covered and dump any investments that you have how smart is that? Remember about 8 short years ago how the stock market was dead and anyone who invested was brain dead? There is a great comet coming. We must hurry and kill ourselves!
    If you have assets do you dump them all and buy truck loads of Mountain House grub? If you have well managed stock accounts and it ain’t all you got maybe you should play turtle for a while. In lawless times how would you like to have a house full of precious metals to protect? It takes exactly one stray round to end your party. Think nobody knows that you have metal?
    Bottom line– if you have a thousand bucks buy food. If you’ve got a million buck diversify. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. (for now)

    • 2isone says:

      Well, speaking for our own situation- we still have a lot invested in “paper” which I am not too thrilled with, but I am part of a team and my husband has a pretty embedded case of normalcy bias. I did convince him to liquidate a good chunk of our holdings before New Year’s, so he is feeling good about that.
      We have a very wealthy friend who lives nearby who has an oil leasing business. I’ve talked about her before… she is the salt of the earth and would give you the shirt off her back if she thought your cause was good. Well, another friend just hit her up for a large “donation” for a good cause. She told her that she would ask around and see if anyone would be willing to donate… and so, I got asked. I said I would give a nominal amount and then asked if that was what X had in mind. She told me X had asked for 5K and that with oil under $30, they were starting to feel the pinch. Just saying, when this lady feels the pinch and declines to donate… well, when she feels a pinch the rest of us are going to feel the PUNCH.

    • Paranoid says:

      Very true. The world only ends once; you get a lot of small storms. You also have to admit that everyone dies and if you are 90 there is no reason to prep for the next 50 years. Me ,I’m 66 and no way am I going to go live in a cave in the woods.

    OREGON UPDATE: We are back home safely after driving 20 hours through rain and snow. I see that Mac Slavo and the rest of the people in charge of SHTF are still staying away from the most important story in the country right now, and I understand why-they are keyboard cowards more interested in trivial stories to pacify their audience and right now they are scared to death, and they have good reason to be. After seeing what I saw in Burns and speaking with hundreds of patriots, I assure you Burns Oregon will soon be affecting ALL of America, so pretending it will not is only going to make it that much WORSE when the events in Burns come to your doorstep. I certainly hope all of you on here are NOT relying on SHTF for real information that will be affecting you all very soon. All of the cowards of collapsing fascist America are scared to death of our fascist globalist criminal genocidal US Government controlled by the most evil vile psychopathic monsters the world has ever seen, our family is not. The time to choose sides is NOW, you are either with freedom and liberty loving patriots like those at the Harney County Resource Center, or you are a fascist boot licking coward and history will treat you no differently than the fascist boot lickers of Nazi Germay-IT IS THAT SIMPLE.

    • slingshot says:


      Keyboard cowards!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Go Fuck Yourself You son of a bitch. You people are the same as the bastard in the White house calling us cowards in the first place. I have done my fucking time and I and doing my extra time here helping others to prepare, even as we joy the articles and exchange of ideas. Don’t need your help and don’t want your help.

    • Goodness, no freedom to have an opinion that differs from yours?

      Ranchers who live off my tax dollars are welfare bums. I am from Oregon and much of my family still live there. They know the truth about ranchers who lease federal lands and burn forests that don’t belong to them for more range. Why don’t you go armed over to Michelle Bachman’s farm and threaten folks to protect her right to endless taxpayer money to keep her gay husband in gay boys to counsel? She voted over and over for her welfare bennies.

      • slingshot says:


        I not talking about the cause.
        I am talking about the insults of calling people keyboard Cowards when many here at SHTF are good people and have served their country well. Even if some people thought that their sacrifices were for a wrong cause by government. I would hope he is not an ex military calling other good military men cowards who have put years in defense so he can insult us.

        By the way he is not a leader but an instigator. No better than a troll in my opinion.

        Now if you don’t like what I said……………..

      Tells us what you saw in Burns. We don’t get shit from the news sites.

        Send me an e-mail brother to [email protected] and I will tell you all about it. I am not going to type out in detail what I saw and what is going on there only to have the fascist censors at SHTF Plan not publish it, but they will publish cursing and attacks on me from keyboard coward drunken bums.

    Ron Ahrens, you got the floor boss. Cant wait to see what you make of this one.

    Watch the fat horric bulldike Bragging how they have phucked people, and that California is next, literally laughing thier asses off with employees cheering. Its now obvious that the recent cali fire was a false flag, and my fomer Fema source mentioned that it was a supposed accident according to him, if you get my drift, his comment, and it looks like they did it to burn out the preppers, not from him, but obviously what he might be insinuating.. You be the judge.

    Think i am kidding, watch David Knight explain what you are about to see then watch the entire video.


    Like i have said before, no 2016 election is coming. I might be wrong, but the ingredients are there for it not to happen, just saying.
    Everyone knows i talk and am controversal. With a video like that proving LITERALLY THAT WE ARE UNDER ATTACK.

    Then war with chinese soldiers, russians and other nationals including the jihadist will happen. Now we know for certain that the Hammonds and the Bundy’s were set up. David Knight mentinoned how they, the Feds are working on talking control of the Red River in Texas, since a rumor popped up last year about the the feds trying to Dam the major rivers in Texas to cut off the water supply from getting to our cities. Since they poisoned the water supply in Michigan, it does not supprise me if they did the same to the Texas Water supply to attack our State. This is serious crap and i have to admit, it rattles my phucking nerves to listen to this kind of talk, and see them laughing at us, laughing how they phucked up people. Watch for yourselves. People the united nations of islam is behind this, which means that a second revolutionary will happen before years end and that the American people will not accept a bulldike as president. I doint quote trust Donald Trump yet, and if he is real, then he is real. If he is real, then a ticket with Sara Palin makes sense. Besides having some good looking milf like her as the VP makes sense unlike some of the democratic Bulldike contenders. Palin and Trump look good together.

    Cruz is paid for by the bankers. He mentioned last year how he met with Henry kissinger and that the meeing went well. He must be new face of the North american union with his VP, marko rubio, that little fake facist phuck.
    Based on what i have heard in that video, we have a very violent future ahead of us. I am scared off my ass like most people are but if it comes down it, and my life in danger, a guranteed militaristic response is a promise, once the soldiers enter my area to attack us, chinese soldiers and other natinonals in my city will die.

    Inside you chest cavity, liver, head and spleen.

    Any jihadist, russian, chinese, north korean, mexican or cuban military coming to Texas or my region and start doing bad things, slaming women on the ground, raping them all over the place like what they did in Germany, you soldier’s, jihadist, who ever or where ever the phuck you all come from, reading my post. I am putting you on notice, expect into my scope. pow, pow, pow, .223/5.56 right in your ass. Under normal circumstance, i would never post on a blog or talk like this. This is really going on in America today, its real folks. Wait till you guys read my new thread in the very near future of what happend to me when i was a kid. You would not believe what happend to me and my family, you would understand why i talk the way i do, it will make sense. Watch the video, see tyrany up in your face. Lindsey Williams was right, America is gone in 2016, and that was the year he was told that America would calpase and be in total civil war by November of 2016. One has to ask, is that not when the Elections comense. Or will they do a false flag. Somethings really bad is going to happen and i can feel it. This is going to be a bad, bad, war thats coming to our cities.

    Any attack on me and calling BS on that video, your agency ass clown status will be blown wide open on this site. You wont be needing a response from me, the others will tear a new one.



    Thank God for Governor Abbott, the real president of Texas.

    Trump and Palin for president and VP.

      Thanks and a hat tip to the managers of this fine site. The wife and I are ‘taking great notice’ of that ‘flic’ and damn, damn damn and NO NO NO they are NOT going to trash this nation (at least not in our lifetimes). OR —> the only alternative would be decades-long chaos reigning everywhere. That WILL have a decidedly bad effect on anything related to living/survival. …almost makes me want to rethink my present water supplies if not sit down and rethink everything, just to be very sure of my feeling fairly sure about what we’ve done to-date.
      We were both born and raised waaaaay out in the woods of the frozen north. We have adequate weapons and lead (with a means to make more as needed, for years). As for food, we’ve stocked a bit over a year. During and after that point the land will provide 90% of everything we need, the lake will provide the other 10% (plus a small trout farm in the creek keeps us in fish year-round). Settlers did it over 200yrs ago …and we can suffer through it as well as they did, with the advantage of LOTS of knowledge that they NEVER had at their disposal (and they still made it didn’t they)!

      Once again, we appreciate the heads up …and ANON can kiss our sweet prepper asses!
