    This article was written by Michael Snyder and originally published at his Economic Collapse blog.

    Editor’s Comment: So far, there hasn’t been a huge economic “event” in terms of a stock market crash. The Fed’s actions have been very careful and general. The media has deflected focus on the long term effects of a market with total central bank intervention, even as the American dream sharply erodes away. The economies of the world are all tanking, the oil price is plunging, and the combined effects of bad economic decisions and real world performance is leading to consequences that will be severe, but may not be seen except in the long term view.

    What will this news mean for jobs, opportunity and employment?

    The Stock Markets Of The 10 Largest Global Economies Are All Crashing

    by Michael Snyder

    You would think that the simultaneous crashing of all of the largest stock markets around the world would be very big news.  But so far the mainstream media in the United States is treating it like it isn’t really a big deal.  Over the last sixty days, we have witnessed the most significant global stock market decline since the fall of 2008, and yet most people still seem to think that this is just a temporary “bump in the road” and that the bull market will soon resume.  Hopefully they are right.  When the Dow Jones Industrial Average plummeted 777 points on September 29th, 2008 everyone freaked out and rightly so.  But a stock market crash doesn’t have to be limited to a single day.  Since the peak of the market earlier this year, the Dow is down almost three times as much as that 777 point crash back in 2008.  Over the last sixty days, we have seen the 8th largest single day stock market crash in U.S. history on a point basis and the 10th largest single day stock market crash in U.S. history on a point basis.  You would think that this would be enough to wake people up, but most Americans still don’t seem very alarmed.  And of course what has happened to U.S. stocks so far is quite mild compared to what has been going on in the rest of the world.

    Right now, stock market wealth is being wiped out all over the planet, and none of the largest global economies have been exempt from this.  The following is a summary of what we have seen in recent days…

    #1 The United States – The Dow Jones Industrial Average is down more than 2000 points since the peak of the market.  Last month we saw stocks decline by more than 500 points on consecutive trading days for the first time ever, and there has not been this much turmoil in U.S. markets since the fall of 2008.

    #2 China – The Shanghai Composite Index has plummeted nearly 40 percent since hitting a peak earlier this year.  The Chinese economy is steadily slowing down, and we just learned that China’s manufacturing index has hit a 78 month low.

    #3 Japan – The Nikkei has experienced extremely violent moves recently, and it is now down more than 3000 points from the peak that was hit earlier in 2015.  The Japanese economy and the Japanese financial system are both basket cases at this point, and it isn’t going to take much to push Japan into a full-blown financial collapse.

    #4 Germany – Almost one-fourth of the value of German stocks has already been wiped out, and this crash threatens to get much worse.  The Volkswagen emissions scandal is making headlines all over the globe, and don’t forget to watch for massive trouble at Germany’s biggest bank.

    #5 The United Kingdom – British stocks are down about 16 percent from the peak of the market, and the UK economy is definitely on shaky ground.

    #6 France – French stocks have declined nearly 18 percent, and it has become exceedingly apparent that France is on the exact same path that Greece has already gone down.

    #7 Brazil – Brazil is the epicenter of the South American financial crisis of 2015.  Stocks in Brazil have plunged more than 12,000 points since the peak, and the nation has already officially entered a new recession.

    #8 Italy – Watch Italy.  Italian stocks are already down 15 percent, and look for the Italian economy to make very big headlines in the months ahead.

    #9 India – Stocks in India have now dropped close to 4000 points, and analysts are deeply concerned about this major exporting nation as global trade continues to contract.

    #10 Russia – Even though the price of oil has crashed, Russia is actually doing better than almost everyone else on this list.  Russian stocks have fallen by about 10 percent so far, and if the price of oil stays this low the Russian financial system will continue to suffer.

    What we are witnessing now is the continuation of a cycle of financial downturns that has happened every seven years.  The following is a summary of how this cycle has played out over the past 50 years

    • It started in 1966 with a 20 percent stock market crash.
    • Seven years later, the market lost another 45 percent (1973-74).
    • Seven years later was the beginning of the “hard recession” (1980).
    • Seven years later was the Black Monday crash of 1987.
    • Seven years later was the bond market crash of 1994.
    • Seven years later was 9/11 and the 2001 tech bubble collapse.
    • Seven years later was the 2008 global financial collapse.
    • 2015: What’s next?

    A lot of people were expecting something “big” to happen on September 14th and were disappointed when nothing happened.

    But the truth is that it has never been about looking at any one particular day.  Over the past sixty days we have seen absolutely extraordinary things happen all over the planet, and yet some people are not even paying attention because they did not meet their preconceived notions of how events should play out.

    And this is just the beginning.  We haven’t even gotten to the great derivatives crisis that is coming yet.  All of these things are going to take time to fully unfold.

    A lot of people that write about “economic collapse” talk about it like it will be some type of “event” that will happen on a day or a week and then we will recover.

    Well, that is not what it is going to be like.

    You need to be ready to endure a very, very long crisis.  The suffering that is coming to this nation is beyond what most of us could even imagine.

    Even now we are seeing early signs of it.  For instance, the mayor of Los Angeles says that the growth of homelessness in his city has gotten so bad that it is now “an emergency”

    On Tuesday, Los Angeles officials announced the city’s homelessness problem has become an emergency, and proposed allotting $100 million to help shelter the city’s massive and growing indigent population.

    LA Mayor Eric Garcetti also issued a directive on Monday evening for the city to free up $13 million to help house the estimated 26,000 people who are living on the city’s streets.

    According to the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority, the number of encampments and people living in vehicles has increased by 85% over the last two years alone.

    And in recent years we have seen poverty absolutely explode all over the nation.  The “bread lines” of the Great Depression have been replaced with EBT cards, and there is a possibility that a government shutdown in October could “suspend or delay food stamp payments”

    A government shutdown Oct. 1 could immediately suspend or delay food stamp payments to some of the 46 million Americans who receive the food aid.

    The Agriculture Department said Tuesday that it will stop providing benefits at the beginning of October if Congress does not pass legislation to keep government agencies open.

    “If Congress does not act to avert a lapse in appropriations, then USDA will not have the funding necessary for SNAP benefits in October and will be forced to stop providing benefits within the first several days of October,” said Catherine Cochran, a spokeswoman for USDA. “Once that occurs, families won’t be able to use these benefits at grocery stores to buy the food their families need.”

    In the U.S. alone, there are tens of millions of people that could not survive without the help of the federal government, and more people are falling out of the middle class every single day.

    Our economy is already falling apart all around us, and now another great financial crisis has begun.

    When will the “nothing is happening” crowd finally wake up?

    Hopefully it will be before they are sitting out on the street begging for spare change to feed their family.

          Michael Snyder,

          from your article…

          “A lot of people were expecting something “big” to happen on September 14th and were disappointed when nothing happened.

          Well said. I agree.

          I wish MORE people would realize that difficult times lie ahead and prepare for their family.

          Take care! May God bless and guide you and your family.

            So now it’s not about a particular day for Mr. Snyder. Bullocks! Mr. Snyder has been promoting the end of the world for the past few months. He has said it will hit the fan by the end of the year.

            When you make predictions and then sprinkle in contradictions to those predictions, it shows the authors true colors.

            This is about money. But then again it is about money for many people in this world, so why should Mikey be any different?

          • Woogie

            Yes, and Snyder forgets to write how Canada is now officially in a recession with their failing economy, and how the destroyed economies of the middle east with the terrorists has made multitudes flee to financially strapped countries.

            I am with you on this. It has been a little nibble at a time at the foundation, until the house cannot stand on its own and collapses.

            • durangokidd

              Someone here said back in 2012, that the shit would hit the fan in 2015; when everyone was screaming “Hyperinflation!”.

              Someone here said back in 2012 that the next Recession would be deflationary in character and that the people of this community should save dollars; contrary to the shrill voices of the dollar haters.

              Who WAS that masked man? Its in the archives.

              That man called the 10% correction in October 2014 to the very day: both the start and stop day. That man called the last correction in August suggesting in the Spring that the markets would not likely last until September when everyone was predicting doom.

              Anyone taking his advice would be in good shape right now and should be able to withstand the coming storm.

              You are welcome. 🙂

        Pay attention to what MS says! S HAS HIT THE Fan For countless millions around the world. It is only a matter of time before SHTF in your neighborhood at which time DL’s advice and comments will need to be taken seriously.

        Drill, drill, drill baby! Sooner or later we will hear the overhead speaker announcing, ‘This is not a drill!’.

        The fact that countless millions of refugees are on the move means the SHTF for them and their options have narrowed to some very few possibilities.

          I’ve stacked so much, I’ve got 5 gal buckets under my dining table, because I ran out of room elsewhere. I’m about as stacked as I can get, without putting some in my bed or holding it on my lap…yes, I live in a very small apt.

        You need a minimum of 25 pounds of rice per person per month. Beans, canned vegetables, soups, meats, can all be obtained right now in your local grocery store. You need a minimum of 1-gallon of water per day per person. What are you going to do when the sewage system quits working? Plan, prep, prepare, and pray.

        • PO'd Patriot

          Don’t count too heavily on rice to sustain you or you’ll be nutritionally starving yourself.

            Pissed Off Patriot:

            As I write I’m eating RICE.

            Medium sized pot. Filled half way with filtered tap water. Add salt and pepper. Add dried peas and dried corn. Add ton of other spices including but not limited to 1/4 cup of parsley. Add onion (ground and diced), garlic (ground), turmeric, cumin, fennel seed, sage, celantro,
            oregano. Add rice. Shave about 1/8 cup of Parmesan cheese. Boil until cooked. Top with plenty of Kerry Gold Butter from grassfed cows in Ireland. For regular use I use Organic premium brown rice. Very nutritious. Tastes good. Easy to make. Enjoy. I am..

            • whatnow?

              Add homemade sweet and sour sauce to rice w.steamed vegetables.
              Even kids like sweet and sour sauce.

              1 cup white vinegar
              12 TB brown sugar
              3 TB ketchup
              3 tsp. soy sauce
              bring to boil, stirring often; mix 2 tsp. cornstarch w. 4 tsp. water to thicken.

              Everyone serious about stocking foods should have these items stored. Long shelf lives (almost indefinite)for all ingredients.

            • socmarine87

              Don’t over look black rice. Its more expensive but far better than brown rice. Also check out Barilla pasta plus. It’s made from chic peas, lentils, etc. Almost more protein than a chicken breast.

            • sixpack

              I added brown gravy mix, peas, seasoned hamburger, mushrooms and parmesan cheese to my white rice…damn it was good for a one-pot quick emergency meal. I’ve been trying them out lately, to see what I like best.

          • laeagle

            POP, Great point. I did grow up eating rice for breakfast, lunch and dinner, so actually, the amount I am sugesting is not enough for a grown man doing stressful work. You probably need to atleast double that amount under those conditions. Rice is easy to prepare and can be eaten steamed or as a porridge. We ate rice as a porridge when trying to extend the rice. If you have a little pork or chicken it too can be thrown into the pot and make a yummy meal. We sometimes cooked rice with meat and made dishes like Jambalaya or Pilaf. Rice stores well. Rice can be cooked with other cereal grains, with potatoes, taro squash, beans, etc., but it takes some skill for it to come out right, not mushy, ie, beans should be cooked first before adding the rice.

            Beriberi was a common problem for people surviving strictly on a diet of rice, especially polished rice. Supplements, especially your B vitamins are extremely important in this type of situation where your diet is limited to starches. Unpolished rice is better for you but may not taste as good. The more variety in food sources, the better for sure. Flour will not keep for long. We always had to sift the flour before using it. Folks counting on flour and bread for their meals should invest in some good sifters. Mark my words, sifters will be in grate demand and will make a good barter item to boot! Wheat stores well but you need a good grinder.

            Mealy worms may actually be nutritious! If you rice is infested with mealy worms, you can put it in the sun for a couple of hours and most of them die. When you rinse the rice, the worms will float and you can wash them out. Rice eaters say if the rice does not have worms then the rice is too ‘green’ and will not digest well when eaten. The nice thing about the worms is that they look like grains of rice. They are distinguished from rice by little black specks on one end, representing the worm’s head.

            I love rice! Louisiana rice!

            • Karl V.

              Any recommendations on a good grinder for the wheat? (manual — in case of no-grid situation)

              • Old Nam Vet

                a bag and gun butt for grinding 🙂

        • Barn Cat

          No, you don’t need that much rice. If you’re eating stored food then you should stock up on as much of what you currently eat as possible.

          We have Dinty Moore Beef Stew, canned ham, canned chicken, canned vegetables, baked beans, canned fruit. We’ll have spaghetti with chicken, chili with chicken. We’ll have 2 meals a week with beans, rice, vegetable, and fruit. We’ll have oatmeal for breakfast. Canned soup for lunch. And so on.

        • B from CA

          About sewage. That’s a subject that is near and dear to my heart.

          Yesterday I was digging ditches. Well not exactly ditches.
          You see. A few months ago, I bought three trees. An avacocado tree, a lemon tree, and a tangerine tree. I left them in the pots and kept them watered. Yesterday I got two planted.
          This naturally required digging holes. While I dug I was thinking about digging a hole for
          sewage. There is already a septic tank. My neighbors worked on the septic tank a lot so I got plenty of real world practice in living without running water. To describe it in a word or two –
          It SUCKS.
          Now I don’t know what predicament I would be in if say the grid was down. But in the event
          that there was no running toilet, I would most likely dig a hole and leave my offerings to the
          gods in the hole. I have found something that I think would work as a cover for a hole. I think
          the prudent thing (judging by how long it took me to get around to planting my trees), is to get
          out and dig and cover the hole now while all is well with my toilet. I may design a screen
          made of canvass and wood to put around for privacy. It would also be for safety. Wouldn’t
          want to fall in. Truthfully. That won’t happen until after the SHTF. But after I get the other
          tree planted, I am seriously going to start thinking about digging a hole for sanitation.
          It will take a lot of thinking before I finally get off my butt and du something.

          Just so you know. There is a lot of money being made in the sanitation business. If we really
          get hit by an asteroid or whatever. Whoever can get to work cleaning up shit and putting in
          a workable sanitation system, will be rich. I know because, well trust me, I know.

          • Plan twice, prep once

            Google “composting waterless toilet. Not hard to build. Likely less effort than digging outhouse holes. Solves the sewage problem by letting mushrooms and bacteria deal with it.

            Print out a couple good articles, and put them in your prepper library.

            In cold climates, if you lose central heat, indoor plumbing will fail. Subsequent water damage could make your home uninhabitable and make you into a refugee on the street. To avoid problems you may need to shut off the water at the street, drain water pipes, water heater, and add antifreeze to waste drain traps and toilets like they use to winterize summer cabins.

        Dried fruit, canned fruit, fresh fruit if you have trees make wonderful snacks. My persimmon trees are loaded right now but I will need to keep the birds, ‘possums, and squirrils away.

        Cold weather is coming, it could be a long, hard, and cold winter. Fuel, wood, clothing will be needed. I paid $1.8 for a gallon of gas. Thisis a good time to check your enventories of supplies. Just sayin’.

        • JRS

          Good advice. I’m surprised at all the people who have fruit trees that don’t use the fruit. We make apple sauce with the tart apples like Macintosh or Granny Smith with a minimum of sugar and can it up along with peaches.

          Cold weather means it’s time to get the wood in. My pile of logs is dwindling…I will have to get more next year. Cut and split 5 cords this week and ranked two in the cellar. Get yourself a GOOD saw like a Stihl. They will last a lifetime, if cared for. My Husqvarna 254XP is 22 years old now and has never left me sit. Best saw I ever had. Not sure how good the newer ones are or if they are even made in Sweden anymore. I know their new bars are junk as they pinch shut on the chain too easy. Never had that happen before.

          We used to “oven can” our rice, flour and beans, but the flour was clumped when we used it, so we vacuum pack it now and freeze it for a couple days before storing it… to kill any bugs. Same with the rice and pasta and beans.

          Hunting season is coming up and we will can a majority of the mountain beef. Breaded in flour and fried in some grease and it melts in your mouth…

          Now, I’m hungry. Gotta go check the girls for a couple eggs and grab some home cured bacon for breakfast.

          All my postings were with the smart phone and so they are short and to the point. It was early in the morning and I was still lying down and had not made coffee yet. Can you imagine what I would be like with some caffeine on board? I didn’t mean to annoy you. Sorry!

          Tea is an excellent source of caffeine and stores very well. In fact, some varieties of green tea bricks, much like certain wines, actually become more valuable with age! There is a great museum and center in Kunming, Yunnan Province, where they specialise in such teas. These are usually the green teas. Darjeeling, the is another great tea region if you prefer black tea.

          I do love my coffee in the morning. The mayor of Calcutta introduced me to coffee from Mt. Kilamanjaro, considered one of the best coffees in the world. I am currently on to coffee from Sumatra. It is a dark roast and will not disappoint. Down here we like our coffee with chicory. For purpses of chillin’, the cafe Dumond in the French Quarter along the Mississippi is a great place to go get some caffe aulait and beignets. Some great New Orleans brands of coffee include, Community, PJ’s, Cafe Dumond, and French Quarter. They are all great. Community comes in many choices and specialties.

        Once again Michael has risen to the challenge and written a lot of truth, that may be useful in the days ahead.

        laeagle has just written s lot of truth in the previous posts.
        Useful information is only useful if it is pertinent to the time of “now” and in the future.

        The past is gone, yesterday is gone, and we can’t change it, but we can learn from it and carry it forward for preparing for the days, weeks, and months ahead.

        Remember, I made a bold statement back in July, and even in May, that the coming five month period, Aug. through December, would produce things/events, that would set the stage for the final five months before the return of Christ. Well, it has now come upon us and the event that kicks off today, the 25th of Sept………. (2 + 5 = 7)keep that number in mind, is just one of those major events.

        I am making multiple posts right now and don’t misread these; for, in no way am I trying to hijack Michael and Mac’s very important information. I am only adding to the conversation because of the timing and importance of the hour.

        A fair warning to those that have a problem with anything biblical. Please skip the following posts of mine. Save yourself the embarrassment of making more anti-religion remarks because you have read something you don’t believe in.

        This information is for one purpose and that is to wake up the sleepy heads that think they have plenty of time to get their house in order and get prepared by stocking food, shelter additions/improvements, or back up heating for the winter.
        There may or not be electricity in the times ahead. if there is no electricity, I can guarantee one thing, there won’t be any petrol products, or at least not for long.

        Don’t attempt to store brown rice or raw sunflower seeds. Undercooked kidney and black beans will make you VERY sick.

        May of us have heard the warnings of repetition to such an extent we have become a boiled frog. I’m probably guilty myself.

        • CrabbeNebulae

          Brown rice can be stored easily. Sterilize quart jars just like you do for canning. Sterilize the brown rice in the oven at 140 degrees for 20-30 minutes in stainless baking pans. Stir it frequently so it won’t scorch. Pour the hot rice into hot (dry) jars and put a (new) lid on the jar and tighten the ring. When the jars cool the lids will pop down just like normal canning. When cool, shake and date the jars and store them away for future use. We are still using brown rice that we put up fifteen and ten years ago. A great alternate to eating just plain brown rice is to crack it and cook it down like cereal. After it’s cooked, put some butter on it and it tastes a lot like grits. Also, I put up two bushels of hard red wheat in 1994 as an experiment in some jars I dug out of an old barn (I cleaned them of course), and it is still good today. Of course, I’ve since acquired a couple pallets of wheat, 7-grain mix and other grains packed in 6 gal super pail buckets, but occasionally wife will grind a couple quarts of the “old” wheat for bread to see how it is holding up. So far so good. Canning, canning, canning!! Can what you eat and eat what you can! Canning season at our house is a year round event.

        As I had promised before, I would follow up with a Part II overview of a book that I am writing. It is still a work in progress, and I hope to make it available through this site and maybe on the web, via e-book.

        Anyways, the Part One I will repost now and soon after post the Part II of which I need to tweak just a bit. Remember I am trying to be as brief as possible but still reveal important information that can’t wait until I finish the book.

        A Covenant of Death,
        Part I
        This is an overview of a book I am currently writing. This revelation has come recently in waves of spiritual enlightenment and through patience of rightly dividing the Word.
        We are in a period of God’s time clock, or time table, unlike any other since modern America has taken shape and progressed through periods of prosperity and blessings. Mixed in those periods were times of horrible atrocities allowed by “we the people”, which should have been acknowledged by shame and divine repentance, and followed by a moral majority of change.
        Very few have done that, even on a personal level, and the majority, have become so immoral that they have replaced spiritual moral acknowledgement, with political correctness and hatred toward those that try to, heighten spiritual awareness; by their evil mockery and accusations.
        We have now reached the point of no return as far as a nation. Here is an outlay of God’s prophetic time clock based on His Hebraic schedule, and not necessarily that of modern day _ews.
        The Shemitah year ended September 13th, 2015. What comes along next is actually more important than what transpired or what didn’t transpire on the last day of the Seven year cycle. On God’s time clock the Jubilee Year began, which is the fiftieth year after the 7 x 7 year cycles.
        Also, the period of Rosh Hashanah began on sunset of the 13th. This is not necessarily celebrated by the _ews, with a full ten day celebration, but on God’s time clock it is relevant. Why?
        This holiday/holy day, is when the anniversary of Adam and Eve’s creation is acknowledged, and more importantly the Coronation of God as King. It also is when the “Book of Truth” is opened, the opening of the “Doors/Gates”, and God is looking for that acknowledgement, and repentance of following idols, such as money and worldly possessions, as faithful children through prayer and, acceptance of Him and His Son, Jesus Christ; which was known then as the Tree of Life, and King Melchizedek.
        This period of the Opening of the Books, lasts for ten days. It ends on September 23rd, at sunset, which is the day of Yom Kippur, The Day of Atonement, the holiest of days of the year because it is the day of national/worldwide repentance redemption. Where there is repentance, there comes atonement and a following of blessings through the reconnection with the Father. Where there is neither repentance, nor atonement, there comes, cursings and death.
        Will the nation as a whole repent for allowing legalization of murder of the innocent? Will it repent for allowing legalization of Sodomy and acceptance of legal unions of those practicing such? Will it repent for its involvement of allowance of the separation of God’s land of Israel? Will it accept and repent for making a deal with idolaters and Evil men; that chant death to God’s children in Israel and His children in America/House of Israel? Will the many liberal supporters (about half of the 120 million eligible democratic voters), of the Spirit of Jezebel through one Hillary Rodham Clinton, that is a staunch supporter of killing of innocents, and harvesting of body parts for profit; acknowledge and repent?
        Regrettably, I have to say NO!
        What comes after no acknowledgement of God as King, and His divine presence on the Holy Throne, and the non repentance of the Nations, specifically America? What comes after a cause of division of Israel, God’s chosen land, by the hand of the leaders of America, that “we the people”, allowed? What comes when a nation puts more emphasis on protection of the immigrants that practice Idolatry, than it does of its own Christian majority?
        Then, comes judgment and the beginning of the days of reckoning, and sorrow. Then, comes death and a fulfillment of a Covenant of that death and destruction promise. Will it come suddenly in September? I believe so, in the form of another sign, or actual domino event.

        There were two great signs from the Heavens last week before the 9/11 anniversary. Right where the worldly minded made a defiant statement of “we” will build taller and stronger, with the One World Tower, there came a rainbow. I believe that rainbow was a sign of God’s presence and his unchanging Covenant with the World as one of Hope, through acknowledgment of Him; that must take place soon. The Bow also rose high above the so called tallest structure in the USA,( like the tower of Babylon of old).
        The other sign was the Divine Lightening bolt that toppled the crane in Mecca where the King of the heathens that follow Idolatry, sits. It was a sign to America, in conjunction with the rainbow, that this may be your last chance during the ten days of the Open Book; or you will suffer the consuming fire of the jealousy of Yahweh.

        When, depends on God’s own timing. He may tarry a while into October, or even later. I have not asked or been shown an exact date, I just know it is coming. Then it will continue to come until people acknowledge and repent to the exact fullness of the Gentiles as God wants. Years; and possibly a decade or more, may follow. The cursings will continue as long as America continues in the business of legalization of sin, and crony capitalisim, instead of promoting Godliness.

        When it does occur, as the first of many dominoes to fall, I will follow up with an overview of Part II, which gives a further possible timeline as I have been shown through the spirit.


        • PO'd Patriot

          Me, well this weekend I’m going to do some work around the house then head to the river and do some fishing. Then I’m going to the range and do some sighting in on some new optics. The Collapse will just have to wait.

          • passinwiththewind

            Sounds good to me. I have been getting the vehicle serviced for a road trip to the coast, and then again to the mountains.
            Mainly to fish at both places.

            We got about 200 rounds of ammo to breeze through this weekend.
            Like you P’oD Patriot, I got a new 6 x 24 scope to get sighted in on the little woman’s sporterized 25-06. She is a hell of a shot even with open sights, but i want her to be able to take out the eyes of a booger threat, at 200 yards.

            It is now getting time to get the weapons tweaked up a tad.

            As soon as the blood moon has passed and the threat of an associated disaster of biblical proportions isn’t apparent; we are out of here.

            Good luck with the fishing!

        They need to shut down the food stamps this will force the useless eaters to work or starve. A government that keeps shutting down is not really a threat to the people. You and I have to live within a budget the gov doesn’t have too though. The economic system is not sustainable and it’s failing. Just insulate yourselves from the bullshit or you will suffer.

        • FTW

          “They need to shut down the food stamps”

          Unfortunately, when that does happen and the Food Banks run dry. These people will be seeking others like you and I out for our goods and supplies.

        Sure as hell can’t tell…DOW Futures are up over 220 as of 7:15a Eastern.

        The European markets are all up this morning. So I guess the DOW will go up today.

        I hope it’s clear Sunday night so I can see the lunar eclipse, the last of the Blood Moons. I didn’t get to see the first three of the tetrad. It will be 17 years until the next tetrad, in 2032-33.

        BTW, I thought there was going to be an asteroid strike yesterday.

        Another day, another dollar. Time is getting short.
        At this point I think there are more people joining the Free Shit Army than people becoming preppers. I await the cause and effect as it trickles down from the just in time economics and the termination of the financial pipeline. How much more can this be discussed without people taking action. It is almost surreal. We are caught in between what we read can happen and when it will happen. You can compare it to the Hurricane Season.
        Hurricanes leave damage you can see immediately. And we do get lots of warnings.
        Like everything else. I am trying to figure out which direction this site is headed.

        • KY Mom


          Re: At this point I think there are more people joining the Free Shit Army than people becoming preppers.

          Unfortunately, there are MANY people who have already lost jobs and maxed out their credit cards in a fruitless search for another job. Many don’t see any other option.

          I work in a small business and have numerous contacts with other small businesses. Many small businesses have laid off employees and/or are not hiring.

          More layoffs are coming from larger employers. In just the past couple weeks, we have learned of pending layoffs at Caterpillar, Marvel Technology, Seagate, Union Pacific, and Groupon.

          Meanwhile, many in the mainstream media continue to tell us all is well.

            Must be terrible when you run out of options. I do think this country is done. I do not see any recovery. Many preppers will make their final stand at home, at the front door. I am done with all the silly crap and not going to take any crap off anyone once the reset starts. If it hasn’t started already. If you have good friends, neighbors and family it should be better for you. This Little Old Fat Boy Red Neck is going to have to move a little faster and pour the lead to them harder.

          • Woogie

            I lost my job when CAT layoffs and a strike in 1982 devastated the economy in central Illinois and I had to leave the state to find work. It wasn’t just CAT layoffs that caused the towns around it to crash, many businesses in the area laid off their own workers because they depended on CAT employees for sustaining their businesses. It is a domino effect that affects everyone eventually; some more than others.

            • KY Mom

              We are seeing that domino effect in eastern Kentucky with the layoffs in the coal industry.

              The food banks are seeing greatly increased numbers.

        Part II of the overview of the Covenant of Death.

        Today, as we all are contemplating what lies ahead, we look for answers to a very important factor, and that factor is “timing”.

        The apostles asked Jesus the same thing many centuries ago…”when”, what will be the signs of the end?

        Now many signs have been revealed. I have recently gathered some missing links to what i was shown a peak at, just months ago. Honestly, some things i am telling the readers here today, just came about this week. I did not know about them until this week. They have been in the works for quite a while but, just now have been confirmed. One of those events is taking place today, tomorrow, and Sunday.

        The Pope, Potus, and the United nations are at the center of this event. Remember, God reveals many things through numerology. Some numbers just pop up out of coincidence, but I don’t think there are coincidences when it comes to the Creator and His numerology stamp on it. I will show a few here. to start; today is the 25th, 2+5=7. 7 means, as Smith’s Bible Dictionary puts it, “the representative symbolic number”, of which, is also divine completeness.

        The pope and his minion, Obama, met privately on the 23rd, the Day of Atonement. I seriously doubt there was much talk about atonement of sin, nor anything that could be broadcast out to the world via cable. There are two sides to both these men. They have an agenda and it is evident by the coming together with the whole Climate Change Agenda, which is in itself, a two faced agenda to separate the world into two divisions of peoples, the elite 1% and the less than wealthy, controllable 99%.

        Wonder why the Pope has at the top of his list of topics, political and governmental issues? That is what this is all about…the One World Order, and it’s political/gov and religious system. It isn’t about helping people economically, well maybe helping to enslave the poor by handouts through a move into Socialism. More importantly is about a move of “moving” the middle class into the class of the poor and the “controllable”.

        The Pope is set to address the United nations and put his stamp of approval, as long as he and catholicism is at the religious front, on a new Agenda 21. it is Agenda 30, or meaning to have this all come to a full head by 2030. The Agenda 30 is disguised by the name called the “New Universal Agenda for Humanity”.

        It covers everything imaginable having to do with humans and everything they touch and everything that directly or indirectly touches their lives. In a nut shell it is about “CONTROL” of every person on Earth. It is the One World, Beast System. The Real ID tracking and identification system is in full swing…it is here and it gets fully kicked off this weekend. It will be disguised and covered up by the so-called Holiest Father that walks the earth. The biggest Idol figure that can’t even make a pimple on the butt of an Archangel. There is only One Holy Father!

        Ok, back to the numbers. This is the 266th Pope, and he met with the most powerful leader of the most powerful nation, by voting position, in the UN/NWO; on wednesday sept.23rd, the 266th day of our year. The gestation period for a live birth is rounded out to be 266 days. 2 + 6 + 6 = 14…double 7s for emphasis.

        As stated in Part one, the Day of Atonement is the Day for Opening a New Book, a new Life, a New birth of something. That New birth is the birth of the NWO by two of the most followed after figures on the face of the Earth. Tens of thousands stood applauding and screaming for them, like they were rock stars. This NWO chapter One, could not have taken place without these two men, at this very time.

        God is still on the Throne, and He was listening for prayers of repentance for ten days. What did He hear and from how many?
        I’m afraid not many, in perspective of the billions on earth.

        Look at what has just happened in what is supposed to be one of the holiest of times for Muslims. On the 11th of Sept, the lightening bolt from Heaven caused the death of 107. On the news we now see the mindless fake god supporting muslims have just stomped to death 700 of their own, in the name of their religion. How sick is that? Is the number seven relevant or coincidence?

        Even sicker is that the Pope and the NWO agenda wants to bring hundreds of thousands of those satanic idiots to America. See where this is going folks?

        Ok, in closing I just want to leave with this thought. Many modern day prophets have been shown things through the Holy Spirit and through dreams and visions. Some have even had visitations. A visitation by an Archangel gave a clue as to how many more years we are facing with this NWO thing. I reported on it sometime back, and i get into more details in the book. I also get into some of the dreams and visions, and ironically, most are from women, not men preachers. One stands out and I’ll share. A lady known as Sister Barbara, was told by the Holy Spirit to speak out about the “acceptable year of the Lord”, for 1050 days. This was over 1050 days ago and she had no idea what it was about, but she told people. Her husband, eventually did the math from the time she received the message, and counted forward. The 1050th day, was Sept. 23rd, 2015.


        Remember when the ruling on the legal acceptance of Sodomy and the Union of Sodomizers, came down? Odrama ordered the People’s House to be lit up with colors of the rainbow. Also, did you know the very top portion of the One World Trade Center was also lit up with rainbow colors. Ground zero, was consecrated as a Land by God in 1776, but is now desecrated. The rainbow that God put over it on sept. 10th was a sign. And to the believers it was a good sign. To the unbelievers, it isn’t such a good sign.

        The culmination of these events and many more have signaled what should have been God’s Covenant with the Earth and His peoples as an everlasting covenant of prosperity, through the Rainbow as he placed it in the Heavens after Noah’s flood. (btw there is written words that follow in Genesis, after the rainbow is first mentioned, about the so-called climate change)
        With any covenant/agreement/contract, there are conditions set forth. The unseen condition with His Prosperity from the Earth Covenant to all his children, was the biggest two letter word ever written…”IF”. If, you keep may commandments and laws, and put no Idols/gods before Me. The answer is clear, so the “contract/agreement/covenant”, was broken by “we the people”. Now we are faced the the other covenant that has been promised would come, if, we turn our backs on our Creator.

            Yea, I tried, but they said i wasn’t quite ready yet.

            BTW, I have a new update on the # killed in the human pilgrim stampede………..It’s 717. Dang that ole # 7 keeps popping up, and another thing i forgot to mention is that this UN meeting is the 70th.

            Now, how about a couple shots of ole #7 for that back ache.

            Brings back memories from 1983. Myself and four other bikers, made a 300 mile trip over a period of days to visit several places with a final destination, other than returning home in one piece, was the Jack Daniels Distillery in Lynchburg Tenn.

            Knowing it was a dry county and that we would probably never make the trip again, we wanted to Commemorate the trip by hauling a pint of ole # 7 in our beverage cooler, on the Harleys, for a cool drink at the distillery.

            It was a hot day when we arrived after spending the night in Chattanooga. After the guided tour, we got back to the bikes, moved them to the shade by the cold creek running by the parking lot. I told the guys my feet were killing me and burning up in my riding boots, so I was going to soothe them in the creek for a bit. To my surprise all of my friends where getting out of their shoes and socks and rolling up their jeans.

            Out came the bottle, and there we stood, as people walked by in awe,and pointing at us, as we heard comments like….”how did those guys get that liquor”. lol, we did plenty of laughing that trip.

            We rode several miles and before getting back on the interstate we ate a big meal to offset the liquor buzz.

        • passinwiththewind

          It is now official. The pope just put his stamp of approval on the New World Order at the UN.

          The UN just gave him their stamp of approval as the NWO religious leader that brings about the Interfaith, one world religion system.

          I just witnessed the live confirmation to the world via cable and satellite as the Pope stood with the Jewish voice of Judaism to his right and Muslim voice of Islam to his left, on the spot that was consecrated to God at the official founding and consecration at Ground Zero. That spot is now desecrated as never before.

          Isa 5:20
          Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

          The land that is prophesied to become the habitations of demons and is now accepted by many as “Mystery Babylon”, will eventually be destroyed along with all it’s wealth/luxuries and it’s economic Superpowers. Read em’ and weep.
          Chrislam doesn’t seem so far fetched now.

          However; it will not work. There will never be Peace between the religions. Why? Because there is no Holy Center to them.
          There is only One Holy Center that binds true spiritual worship together…..Jesus Christ Saviour.

          How many times did the Pope say anything about Jesus Christ?

          How many of all those Interfaith religions on that stage, have Jesus Christ at it’s heart?

          The NWO will push and pull and force religions to combine, They won’t combine, but only on paper. It is all set up for the master deceptor of holiness and religion to come on the scene, and pull it all together.

          He just about pulls it off as the whole world by the end of 2029 is set to whore after him. He is Antichrist. Riding from the clouds on his fake white horse and with his fake rainbow around him, which btw is exactly like the fake rainbow that the sodomites use today. See the similarities.

          Accept it and walk in light, or deny it and follow the ways of the world/darkness, for it has arrived. Only time, now, is our enemy, as we long for the return of our Redeemer.

          • grandee

            I had to turn the inter-faith service off.

            It was scary to watch.

            That must be what it will look like (if this isn’t it) when the one world religion comes into being.

          My birthday this year IS on the Blood Moon Tetrad. By your “reasoning” and addition, should I expect to see the 666 behind my left ear, sometime tomorrow, or, will it appear after the Blood Moon sets?

          • passinwiththewind

            No mark for you.

            Just stick around till about 2029. I have never predicted the Apocalypse or Armageddon, or even a total collapse of the stock market.

            i have said that i believe we could see a “crash” before the end of this year and i have explained it several times, that a crash is determined by a sell off of 30% or more. Hardly a total collapse or an immediate jump into the NWO system.

            However; I have said that when the dominoes start falling, and today they have, it is a sign of birth pangs that are prophesied to come.

            Please. do “not” confuse me with one of the doom and gloom, pre-tribbing, fire & brimstone, preachers that we all have seen and heard. There is no such thing as a 2015 rapture. There is actually no pre-trib rapture at all.

            I am no preacher, but a teacher/helper of what i see as biblical truths, that may help someone with their prepping.

            I have never even said that September would bring about a total collapse associated with the final blood moon. For me it is just another biblical sign of a new cycle. However; I do see a new cycle that America has brought upon it’s self because of bad decisions. A cycle of chastisements and corrections that may, or may not be associated with cataclysmic events.

            The Real ID system is not, at this time, associated with buying or selling. At some point it may be tied in with that actuality. When that is the case, then you can start being a smartass about the 666 thing. But, my guess is by that time, you won’t be worried about whether or not to accept it.

          Might see a resurgence of Mau-Mau cannibalism, or some other civil disorder when the EBT cards are cut off. I believe that they WILL be intentionally cut-off to put further political and “ethnic” pressure on Congress to bend to the Obamafurher’s will and might. AS the Esteemed Gaulighter of Chicago has said in the past, “…never let a good crisis go to waste!”

          • passinwiththewind

            Billery has said that also.

            Boehner has basically said he has worked a deal with Odrama and the crony dems, to block “de-funding” of Planned Parenthood, so the gov will not shut down and the EBTs will all go out as usual.

        The Bankers and the wealthy have taken Steve Miller’s advice, “go on, take the money and run”.

        • passinwiththewind

          One of those wealthy has just made his bid to run with his money, and that is the speaker John Boehner. Why now? Why at the end of October?

          I think he knows what he has to do and what he has to do, will cause his repub counterparts to turn on him like a pack of rabid dogs.

          The majority of the right and the pressure they are getting is unbelievable because of the Planned Parent hood atrocities that are being done with taxpayer funds.

          The people are pissed, as well they should be, about the murder and chopping up of baby parts for sell. Unfortunately, it has all come too late. God has now opened the pages to the final chapters on America as a free nation. He has said we will reap a double portion of what we have sowed. If we have killed 70 million of His children through abortion, then we will see 140 million killed through supernatural events in the future.

          If the repubs close down the gov because of attaching the defunding of Planned parenthood to the budget bill; then only Boehner can make the moves to push the budget forward without approving the defunding part.

          I think he will, just as he has sided with the potus many times before. Boehner is one of the NWO insiders and he will shed his crocodile tears, all the way to his NWO position. I think his crying comes from the fact, he knows full well he has sold his soul for that position. Only he and God knows for sure.

          • passinwiththewind

            Think he is not part of the NWO. he knows.

            It was just stated that Boehner, a devoted Catholic, has been trying to get the Pope to address congress for many years, actually it was stated as twenty years.

            • Warchild Dammit!

You’re old enough to kill but not for votin’, you don’t believe in war, what’s that gun you’re totin’, and even the Jordan river has bodies floatin’. Don’t you understand what I’m trying to say? can’t you feel the fear that I’m feeling today, if the button is pushed there’s no running away, There’ll be none to save with the world in a grave. Take a look around you boy it’s bound to scare you boy. And you tell me over and over and over again my friend, Ah you don’t believe we’re on the eve of destruction. Ah you may leave here for four days in space but when you return it’s the same old place. The pounding of the drums, the pride and disgrace. You can bury your dead but don’t leave a trace, hate your next door neighbor but don’t forget to say grace. -Barry McGuire

        What does all the time from 1948 to today have in common? Millions of Americans all thought that the end of the world was imminent. Makes you wonder who are profiting off this fear. Sure are 1,000’s of books, memberships and DVDs on this subject. And if your metals dealers really thought the price would jump, why are they selling the metals to you? And if your seeds and food dealers really thought the food would be scarce, why are they selling the seeds and food to you? Shemitah all over your face.

          Disaster and destruction comes in many forms.

          There are three types that we will soon start to see coming in waves and repetitions.

          Natural, Unnatural, and Supernatural.

          The natural events are, but not limited to, weather events that have come and gone for centuries. Hurricanes, floods and the like.

          Unnatural events are those that man has created by his own devices like advanced weaponry and Nuclear radiation.

          Supernatural events are those put into action by Divine Intervention for a specific purpose. Earthquakes may be seen as natural by most; but, when they are used as bringing chastisement and judgment upon humanity, then it becomes a Supernatual event linked to other disasters that follow with it like flooding/tsunamis, and fire.

          I believe the fires in the west are Supernatural. These fires were brought about because of droughts. God has always used droughts to bring about judgments and repentance on His people.
          Not only are these fires causing much change in peoples attitudes and beliefs, but more importantly they are causing people to flee the west coast. They are warnings of bigger events to come in the form of earthquakes and tsunamis, to those areas.

          Many will see the fires as warnings, but many will not heed the warnings and stay put, because of money, investments, and relatives. Time will tell, but there will be massive earthquakes along those western faults in the not to distant future.
          Who will heed the warnings? Who will sacrifice innocent children and their safety, for stuff?

          I believe there will be one more short warning from a smaller quake or series of smaller ones….before the big one.

          Bert –

          Why does Walmart sell shovels when they know things will have to be dug up. Why does Home Depot sell light switches when they know they’ll fail at some point? Why do we all work for American Cash when we know it’s a fiat currency and will most likely be useless in the future? Because we have to make a living.

          You idiot.

            Great explanation. What if the person on the other end is in the fourth grade. I bet you would feel like an idiot. Be nice. I and others would appreciate a return to civility and good manners.

            Thank you for an otherwise thoughtful comment.

              We can’t keep going through life worrying about “hurting someones feelings” when they are clearly in the wrong – clearly shooting from the hip with no facts. Those people are also known as Democrats. We already have too many of those. It’s time we stand up for what we believe in. I called Bert an idiot because he is one. I’m not going to apologize for that.

          Do you really think that everyone who follows these sites or who believes in a self reliant, responsible way of life is stupid. Obviously you do. You are mistaken.

        Forget the asteroid prediction, tsunami warning, volcano eruptions and all the rest of the obvious distractions. What really will hit home quickly is if those EBT cards don’t get loaded as usual this month or any of the months to come. That probably has a much higher statistical chance of happening than a space rock falling soon, although I do not for one second, believe that TPTB would think they would need to tell the masses up until the last hours, even if they knew there was a near earth object approaching. We always wake up and see the headlines the next morning… Large Asteroid Passes between Earth and Moon (last night while you were sleeping).

        We have a little of everything; food, water, emergency power and PMs. But the best thing we have done to prepare for our family is move out of the city.

        Great article. I hope this goes through.

        We still have World War 3 and the end of the petro-dollar coming. Followed by martial law.

        What a coincidence every country bankrupt at the same time,not….. If the United nations wished
        To roll out one world govt, what more ideal a time than when such is going on? Bet all sheep
        Would be easy to tag and bag while the bankers run wild. Money is just so much paper to all
        Those who are awake. When I hear we are bankrupt I question it is true or just so much
        Fabrication for their cause. Behner just quit, running for cover, nothing accomplished for the American people. Borders open waiting for attack and immigration that is our most dire problem.
        Can kicked down the road, if the U.S. falls who will give away all the money to the support countries and individuals both theirs and ours. Where does all this money lost go? Maybe
        Skimmed off to keep this Titanic Afloat awhile longer. No one is held accountable or jailed
        For thievery their fingers are in everything. Don’t believe a thing they do or say……..

        Bert :

        I say: A seed is only valuable if it is planted.

        I have a tree. It produces fruit. The fruit contains seeds. I remove the seeds and can the fruit.
        I don’t have room on my land to plant another tree, so I sell the seeds to someone who has land but no seeds.

        It doesn’t matter to the person who buys the seeds why I sell them. He only cares that my seeds are going to produce a tree for him which in turn will produce seeds. He will not buy my seeds if they are not good heirloom seeds at a fair price. I do not care what he does with his seeds. He can eat them, he can plant them, he can sell them to someone else for twice as much as I sold them to him. This is called the free market.

        If you don’t understand it is because you are not willing to abandon your own fixed ideas in order to learn. This makes you unteachable. Open your mind.

        Regarding the sale of gold:
        If I buy gold from the factory where the coins are made I have to pay for them out of my own money. After I buy them, I have no money left to pay my bills. So I keep one of every ten coins that I purchased and I sell the other nine to whoever wants my gold. Because I buy so much at one time, I am able to purchase at a cost below the regular cost. So when I sell I make a profit and I can buy more gold to sell. Each time I do this I am able to build my own personal gold while providing an opportunity for others to also have this valuable commodity.

        KNOW THE DIFFERENCE between refugees versus criminals … coming to a town near you because the POTUS is considering allowing at least 100,000 of these dangerous psychopathic Muslim terrorists to be released into our country, in the near future, pretending he believes they are desperate refugees in need of our compassion and help.

        Yes, with proper planning/prepping a major earthquake or other major widespread natural disaster or an economic collapse and even an EMP are all survivable.

        But NO amount of planning, preparing and prepping will save us from this, especially if the POTUS and his enablers are really in on it, as has been reported.
