Chapman: ‘There Is No Question Now That the Game Is Over’

by | Jul 20, 2011 | Forecasting | 123 comments

Do you LOVE America?


    Bob Chapman doesn’t mince words in his most recent report Crisis And Collapse Unfortunate but Inevitable:

    The euro zone foisted one interest rate fits all, all on countries that should have never had the same interest rates as say Germany. We talked about both these issues 14 years ago, but as usual, no one was listening. From the very beginning the EU and the euro zone were doomed. Both are going to now begin the process of disintegration, as both are a failure. The six countries will go bankrupt, as will the banks. That will dislodge England and push it into bankruptcy and that in turn will force the US to follow. That may be the catalyst that forces a meeting of all nations to revalue, devalue and multilaterally default, hopefully such a meeting will occur long before this stage is reached. There is no question now that the game is over. The question now is when?

    Workers have become a form of inventory just like widgets. For years now companies have laid off and rehired workers at will, keeping the expensive worker participation to a minimum. If you use total figures and include discouraged workers the unemployed are 20.6 million, up 483,000 in June. We do not see stimulus 3 coming from Congress, so we expect unemployment to resume its relentless rise upward from 22.6%. Mind you unemployment reflects $1.7 trillion in stimulus 1 and 2, and QE 1 and QE 2, which takes us well over 44 trillion. All those injections did was to bail out the financial sector and government. As we know our President tells us the administration created three million jobs, at a cost of $266,000 per job. That is hardly something to write home about.

    Year-on-year in the municipal sector 450,000 workers are going to lose their jobs, because many of these entities are close to broke. They and the states want more money from the federal government, which it doesn’t have to give.

    If the Fed does not inject $850 billion into the economy we are looking at a minus 3% to 5% in GDP. That is in addition to buying $1.7 trillion in treasuries and other associated toxic waste.

    The newest recession began a few months ago, or should we say downturn in an inflationary depression. There will be no recovery this year or next without $850 billion additional being thrown into the economy. No 3.5% growth. Perhaps a minus 4% if we are lucky. That should put unemployment close to 25% by 2012.

    They may pretend like everything is fine and dandy but the facts are clear: Everyone is broke.

    Greece, Ireland, Italy, Portugal, Italy, Spain and the UK are broke.

    The US government is broke.

    The American people are broke.

    When 25% of the people have no income coming in and prices for basic goods continue to rise, there will be no upward movement in the economy. Consumers cannot spend, because they have nothing left – their incomes have been eliminated and so too has their credit.

    The only hope for growth is more easing by the Fed and more stimulus from Congress, but even that is masking the problem. We may see positive GDP growth as a result, as we have “officially” seen in recent quarters, but this is strictly a mathematical result of rising inflation and increased government sector spending.

    It does not mean that there is job creation or traditional consumer spending and economic growth.

    The mathematics of this makes our eventual economic destruction an inevitable reality. There is simply no way to stop it.

      1. Dontsayididnt tell you said…
        Of course we are broke, its all been spent, and there aint nothing coming in and We all know how this is going to play out;
        First The debt ceiling will most definitely be raised by August.
        Soon after by fall The banks will start loaning again.
        They will offer Low interest credit rates for credit cards, business start ups, homes, cars you name it.
        Americans will gobble up this new cheap credit debt and start buying crap again everyone will be making money.
        The main stream media will beat the drums accordingly night and day over and over again pounding it into our brains, how the economy is booming again.
        Preppers will be looked upon as Nay Sayers, Social misfits and outcasts, druggies, bad investors, anti American, Anti capitalists, and the name calling will go on and on till they beat the preppers back into the caves.
        This will go on till president Obama gets reelected.
        Then the real Hell will begin..
        Crushing Tax hikes, higher interest rates, debt reforms, salary cuts, pension reforms, social security cuts, medicare cuts medicaid cuts.
        all during this time they will continue increasing the taxes on the middle class till they are dumbed down and poor.

        • at least that gives us a little more time to prepare. for it still at the appointed time, it will happen….

        • Barry Obama re-elected…LOL…not a chance. We’ll get to see more of what a narcissist does when he doesn’t get his way. Debt ceiling or not, won’t be long before a war breaks out over a broken worldwide economy. Better prepare for winter…physically, but most importantly, spiritually.

          needGOD .COM

          • Narcissist? Beloved Leader Obungle?? More like a Petulant Piss-Ant!!! I simply can’t get enough of it when he sticks his lower lip out and pouts!!

        • Couldn’t have said it better myself. The good times are about to roll ….. until 2013.

        • I sense the cronies in washington along with thier fiat money, have a similar plan like you described, first mission, make it look like the economy is doing great, get him reelected then all hell unleashed on the average american worker. Yup thats how I see it going down

        • And all of that may strangely coincide with Dec. 12th, 2012. Bizarre timing…

        • This is exactly what I have been saying. Expect the economy to be propped up until next election. After that, we will begin to pay the price for the continual rise of the debt celing.

        • Sounds like a good time for everybody who can get credit cards to get them and let the banks pay for the preps they need. Get what you can, charge them up over a couple of months, then tell them where to go.

          Credit Cards are unsecured “debt” created by your signature. That signature can buy a lot of preps, and the preps are safe.

          Screw the banks, Save the country.

      2. Ha!!

        It cannot be so.

        I am STILL receiving offers for new credit cards.

        Don’t think it hasn’t crossed my mind to get a couple of cards and use them to obtain all of the silver I can then just refuse to pay them. Kinda like the guv..

        How much ammo is enough?

        • You can never have enough ammo. My only disagreement with the premis is simple. We can still run the printing press and idiots in the world still give us oil, products, and commodities like gold in return for it. When the world stops taking the dollar S ‘will’ HTF. Until then we get to live the dream – and prepare for the inevitable.

          You can never – and I mean never – have enough ammo. That is one reason I love 10/22’s and have numerous 22 pistols….50,000 rounds isn’t all that much of an investment over a few years. $450 a year and I add 10,000 more.

          • Jim, did you see the new 25 round mags for the 10-22 made by Ruger on their website ? I am waiting for more reviews on them before i get some….the few I have read are very positive….

            • 🙁 I’m in CA….we are a “safe” state where only LE can have magazines over 10 rounds….I have some of those eagle 3 mag holders with 10 in each mag. And a couple of pre ban 30’s.

            • I have never had any issues with the Butler Creek steel ‘hot-lips’ mags for the 10/22. What’s the difference in price between the two?

            • Think they were $29. Think I’ll be picking up a 10-22 now and adding to my .22 stockpile…

            • Got a couple extended mags for the little Ruger: a 25 that cost me about that. …and a 30 that cost me about $11. Both are great but require a little trimming on the top. The bolt face would catch on the top of the mags. A little filing with a good Nicholson, wowee! 30 (or 25) shots. I considered.

              Remember people, a balanced approach. Make sure you have all your 7Gs covered, then, if you have extra to “sink” into something, buy ammo, silver, whatever. You can always trade it later for whatever.

              Anybody know any good places to pick up 30-30 and 30-06 ammo?

              Someone needs to erase that phrase from our collective recognition. … “too much ammo”. What *IS* that? I don’t understand the term.

            • Netranger, for 30-30 and 30:06 I’d recommend a reloading commitment, and before you think no way there is a hand held reloading tool at Cabellas for under a $100…. Might even be less then 50 I don’t recall since I don’t reload for semi autos and the only thing I have that isn’t semi is a 357 lever and revolver combo. For the 357 I hope to add the hand reload kit in the future. I know a lot of guys reload all the calibers….that isn’t for me. And 22’s of course we can’t reload but we can sure stock pile!

            • I just bought two of them at Bi Mart. $30 ea. Haven’t tried them out yet.

            • Jim,

              Who said you can’t reload 22 rim fire stuff? I certainly have, but, not by conventional means. Its more of a novelty than anything.

              As far as loading 30-30s and 30-06, I can and do. In fact, I’m died up for 30-30s now.

              But, what I find is that to get a big store of something, reloading certain cartridges can be way more expensive than buying bulk, depending on the cartridge, of course. Try attempting to beat the price of 9mm ammo. Unless you cast your own bullets, you’ll fail.

              I can certainly reload 30-06 cheaper than I can buy them, even buying jacketed bullets, however, getting the cases pushes the cost up. Same with 30-30 stuff.

              When you’re looking to stockpile, it really doesn’t make sense to reload 1000’s of rounds. You commit all your stock into something you may or may not use. Its a lot cheaper to buy bulk, usually.

              So, thats where I’m at.

            • No offense guys but, if you are relying on 10/22’s to make it through the collapse…you’re in trouble!

              Hey, they’re fine for varmint hunting e.g. rabbit & squirrell but you better have a battle rifle (or 10) in 5.56 or 7.62×39 to defend your newly acquired food & preps! A 12 gauge shottie is a good idea as well!

          • If you are looking around for a cheap, hard hitting rifle, look at a Mosin Nagant 91/30. they aint pretty, they aint fast and they aint new. BUT they are cheap ($70 to $90) they are cheap to shoot ($90 per 880rnds) bolt action, very reliable, 147grain steel core hits like a ton of bricks. Look on You Tube / Mosin Nagant 91/30 1000 yard shot. You cant even buy a .22 at this price. I have 6 and love them.

            • Yes I have 2 and well worth the money. Can shoot all day for cheap if your shoulder can take it!

            • Great guns the Mosin…for the money. Excellent choice if you have family that doesn’t shoot who will come to you when SHTF and you want to help them….also good to stick in a PVC pipe, with end caps and bury where you might need them.

            • July’s issue of Shooting Times magazine featured an article about a replacement trigger by Timney for $94.95 and it seems to be one of the best upgrades for the Mosin Nagant. The trigger pull can be reduced from 9.5 pounds to a crisp 3 pounds. If you are competent in gunsmithing, it should be a snap. Otherwise, take it to a qualified ‘smith.

        • no such animal

          • there are 3 10 rnd mag holders from cabelas for quick mag interchange. Not aware of preban 30 rnd mags for 10 22. U can however buy large cap after market mags, but most are cheap plastic and function poorly.

            • With Butler Creek mags, mine runs like a sewing machine.

            • This is why I was interested in the Ruger brand 25 rounders. Friends with the after market extended mags have complained that once they get a little dirty, they never seem to function properly afterwards, no matter how much they are cleaned.

        • Speculate in silver. Invest in gold. Hoard your lead. They won’t be making anymore of it after the SHTF … at least not for personal consumption.

        • “How much ammo is enough?”

          When they stop shooting back, you know you brought enough. That could take a while though.

          • The only time you can have too much ammo is if you’re on fire or swimming…maybe not even then.

        • 2500 rds/long gun
          1000 rds/hand gun
          1500 rds/shotgun
          Professional Slingshot (200 mtr range)
          12 gauge perimeter alarms

      3. The mathematics of this makes our PLANNED eventual economic destruction an inevitable reality. There is simply no way to stop it.

        Fixed it for ya’.


        • Sometimes I’m not thinking clearly. Thanks! 🙂

        • In your short statement, you basically said it all. There is no way to stop it all. What part of broke don’t people understand?? And no matter what is done, if people don’t have jobs, all the stimulus in the world isn’t going to make any difference. Period>>>>

        • So glad to see someone else has tried the math. My best calculations have ended with a WAG. I’m using an assumed 202 trillion in debt and unfunded liabilities, all government.

          To get out of the mess we would need to cut government by 54 to 58%, increase the federal revenue to about 17 trillion for about 27 to 30 years.

          It’s never going to happen.

      4. No one thinks about losing when they are winning.

      5. I disagree……….6 months from now we will hear the same thing ! I clearly remember listening to Gerald célènte last august , 1 year ago how horrible things would get before 2011 began and here we are almost 3/4 into 2011 . This game will go on and on as long as they need us distracted from the earth changes and it’s too late ! The name of the game is DISTRACTION .

        • You have made a good point. This idea of distraction must be kept in mind at all times. We are all being “played” everday, in addition to be screwed continuosly. it will never stop.

        • Clearly. BTW, if anyone’s wondering about the false flag that’s being prepared, what about a scalar attack on the New Madrid. Would that DISTRACT enough? They did it in China and they did it in Haiti. This would be powerful distraction. Yes? No? Yes!

          • I live on the New Madrid….PLEASE, keep quiet!!!

        • Are you saving crisp ten dollar bills?

          • only “mushroom” saves crisp ten dollar bills…to wipe his butt with i guess.

            • Crisp ten dollar bills in #10 cans.

        • “This game will go on and on as long as they need us distracted from the earth changes and it’s too late!”

          What earth changes? To what end? Why are they distracting us? Not disagreeing, I’m seeking your theory on this. Too late for what?

          • the earth changes that are going on is what we are being distracted from. The global warming BS didn’t work, man made CO2 is BS and most have figured it out. CO2 doesn’t drive the environment, the environment drives CO2.
            We are undergoing serious earth changes and this can’t be argued….I have heard many really good theories as to why, I think it is all related and actually several different reasons. TPTB know what is coming and aren’t about to tell us, so they are keeping us distracted until it gets here and then they can let the beast die and pull the life support plug they have been intentionally been keeping plugged in until the right time. Then they will let it all go at the same time and they will run off in their safe hiding places and come out when all the dying and death is over….at least that is their plan….I know a God who says other wise 🙂

            • Is it possible that the cracks in the system are from an intuition that mankind has? The pending economic disaster/war/famine that we all see coming is something that we know deep in our psyche?

              So, whats your theory on what is happening? Is this Revelations playing out? (…wars and rumors of wars?)

              I ask questions, not out of ignorance, but out of a seeking for alternate information.

              Please clue me in to your theories and knowledge.

            • Netranger,
              Funny you say that cause I was just coming in here to post this for you….it is a video series that is 14 long and each one 10 minutes for a total of 140 minutes….long I know. I haven’t finished watching all of it and I am not sure I am on board with everything this man is saying……but found this remark at the 8 minute mark or so in this video very interesting and it made me think of your comment yesterday


            • BJ,

              E-Mail me: [email protected]

              We need to talk. …and I don’t want to clutter Mac’s fantastic comment board with our chatter. I’m going to pull down that video series and burn it to DVD so I can watch it on the bigscreen.

          • Hey RICH! You too. See e-mail address above.

      6. The US will never go bankrupt or default on its debts because we can still print our own money. This was the intent all along was to devalue our currency to the point where all we have to do is give China a loaf of bread to pay off our debt with them.

        • Beefcake,
          You seem to think this is a viable and acceptable solution . . . print enough money to just payoff the Chinese with toilet paper money? The problem with this is yes, the debt owed to the Chinese is now paid off, but now they go shopping with all that toilet paper money, which means food, energy, all prices in the U.S. and all over the world are bid up to astronomical levels. No more debt, but now a loaf of bread is $1,400 dollars. Not much of a solution. That “cure” will kill the patient.

          Eventually our children will just default on the debt that we created and stuck them with.

          • No where in my post did I condone this kind of behavior. I’m just saying don’t say we will ever default or go bankrupt as a nation, we will just hyperinflate ourselves to oblivion. Once all of the investors get fed up and cash in their chips we will just fire up the printing press and hand them a bunch of worthless paper (or a loaf of bread seeing how by this time it will probably cost $100,000,000,000,000 US dollars for one). There is a possibility that before it gets this far pensions will be emptied out completely as well as all PM assets seized by our gubmint with the promise of repayment later (but later never comes).

            When they come for your gold, give ’em lead instead.

            • The govt won’t seize PMs again. That’d be equal to trying to disarm 51 million armed homes. They might drive it underground, but they’ll never find my cache.

        • Wow! Go to this guys site and bring up the pictures. Then, move your mouse to the face of each person in the pictures. In the right column there is an explanation of who it is and what they did or represent. Stellar work! Much more than just pretty pictures.

          • not finding what your talking about….how about a final link….much easier that way

        • That was awsome

      7. Devalue against what Mac? Oil, food, water, gold, silver…

      8. Chapman has been using that same line
        “meeting of all nations to revalue, devalue and multilaterally default,” in a number of his recent newsletters.

        Like the previous poster, I find the word “revalue” confusing. Revalue the dollars against other currencies or change its weight in the SDR basket? That might be the intent of his phrasing. Certainly we all know the dollar only carries the weight it does on account of being the reserve currency and the U.S. military having no peers.

        Which brings up the topic … now that Iran has an oil terminal in the persian gulf and is selling their oil to other countries and accepting payment other than the USD …. how long can it be before the U.S. declares Iran to have WMDs and need to be invaded?

        • they are already posturing for this

        • Iran already has WMD’s. At least 3 or 4 nuclear warheads.

          They shot down a drone we used to spy on them just in the past few days and are parading it off. They invaded Kurdish bases in Iraq last weekend and our administration hasn’t even commented. The MSM is calling those Kurdish bases terrorist camps by the way. Funny how our friends are now terrorists and our enemies are free to invade countries we are responsible for the defense of at the moment.

          Israel could well start something up with Iran we’ll have to finish as previously posted here. Their very survival may depend on it. I think the only reason a nuke isn’t snuck into Israel for detonation is the Muslim followers don’t want a radio active holy land. They consider it thier holy land too.

          Did you ever contemplate war with Iran might be necessary? They might bring it to us if we don’t take it to them.

          • something posted on the previous thread..from dave

            Dave says:
            July 19, 2011 at 6:22 pm Keep these things in mind when you hear about the “evil Iranian regime” by the Jewish dominated media.

            Iran has no nuke bomb program as verified by the IAEA
            Iran has a right to build nuclear power facilities.
            Iran is a signatory to the NNPT which allows them to enrich uranium to electric generation grade.
            Iran would rather sell their oil than burn it for electricity.
            Iran hasn’t invaded another nation for over 200 years, but Iran was invaded by Iraq which was sponsored and funded by the US killing 500,000 Iranians.
            Iran doesn’t get any funding from the US

            Israel has actual nuke bombs.
            Israel invades many nations and they are currently in 4 illegally at this time (Syria, Lebanon,Jordan and Palestine).
            Israel refuses to sign the NNPT.
            Israel refuses to allow inspections of their nuke facilities at Dimona.
            Israel has costed the US 4 times what the entire Apollo moon program costed us.

            Keep these facts in mind when the maniacs in TelAviv start yet another war for the gullible US dummies to finish with our treasure and your son’s blood.

            • It doesn’t make Israel wrong and Iran right. Its just what it is…..I’d rather live with evil capitalist Israelis then under sharia any day.

            • VRF – these are not facts. Here are a few facts and the link to the article just released TODAY:

              “However, France said Iran’s move – which Tehran claims could triple the rate at which it enriches uranium – confirmed suspicions that the Iranian nuclear programme had “no credible civilian application”. The French foreign ministry said: “Iran has just given in to another provocation by announcing the imminent installation of next generation centrifuges.

              “This is a new violation of six security council resolutions and 10 resolutions by the council of governors of the International Atomic Energy Agency [IAEA].””


              I think the fact that Israel has nukes and has not used them against her enemies proves that she is not the aggressor, she is only defending herself.

              Have you ever read any of Ahmadinejad’s comments and beliefs regarding the 12th Imam? Israel is the Little Satan – guess who the Big Satan is?? “Today, they came for the Jews and I did nothing because I am not a Jew.” Who will they come for tomorrow?

              BTW – there is NO country “Palestine” and never has been.

            • VRF,
              You have to be kidding? Sounds like Iran is a Jeffersonian Democracy? More facts:
              Iran is the world’s largest sponsor of terrorism – remember that term, it’s where Islamic lunatics kill innocent women and children in the name of God;
              Iran is a religious dictatorship backed by a subjugated military;
              Iran, dating back to their love affair with Hitler and the Nazis, always backs the bad guys. They wouldn’t know a “good cause” if it bit them in their evil asses.

              The quicker Israel bombs them into the Stone Age, the quicker the world can heal.

              Final fact to watch for: at the end of time, when Christ returns to fight and end the last war, guess who HE will be fighting? Nope, it won’t be Israel, it will be Iran, Russia, Ethiopia, Egypt, Libya, and China. I assume you’re on the side of Jesus? If not, you better re-think your priorities.

            • Your first sentence was spot on. However your second assertion of living with one or the other is a false choice. We are Americans and don’t HAVE to live with one or the other. We are free to choose another path and should do so with all due speed because our mainstream thought process of having to live under either Israeli or Iranian dictates is killing us physically and mentally. Our government after having spent, given, sold our blood and treasure to the highest bidder will have to learn the meaning of ‘neutrality’. Domestically and abroad.

          • President Mobilizes Four Aircraft Carrier Groups to Persian Gulf

            Go back and read 21 May

        • the bible referred to a jubilee which ocurred every fifty years or so. Debts were forgiven and life went on. It was good for the debtor, not so good for the creditor especially if u lent in year 49. We could be headed for one down the road as there really don’t seem to be many other options. A grand reset.

        • Iran shot down a US spy drone today over its prime military / nuclear facility. Sacrificed, no doubt, to collect Iranian radar frequency codes for the real deal.

      9. Get every crisp $10 bill you can find and put it in a #10 can…sell all of your gold and silver, your ammo and beans too and take all of the crisp $10 bills you get and put them in that #10 can, you’re gonna need’em. Nothing matters but the Federal Reserve, they are going to fix everything, so don’t you worry at all. When it is fixed, and Tim Geithner comes on CNBS and tells you everything is OK and you can go get your new job now, you will have plenty of crisp $10 bills to buy that new suit with so you can interview. So don’t worry, everything is just fine. The best minds in the country are hard at work helping you!


        • Hey Mushroom..
          Missed ya

          • Oh god……

        • Hi mushroom,

          Just wondering,… how much were you paid to be an American Traitor?

          (Assuming of course you call yourself “American”)

          PS: Don’t bother answering, the fact that you are clearly acting as a shill,….or have the IQ of a moth (or both) says it all.

        • You cannot really be serious about that! Only someone who was kept in the dark and fed on loads of crap could believe something that crazy!

        • Mushroom! Yer back! Welcome. You added a certain “flavor” to this conversation.


          • I like crispy porta bella fungi! On top my steak… w a lil butter and garlic pepper.

        • What about canning jars… can you store crisp $10 bills in them too or is it just #10 cans with oxygen absorgers?

      10. I’ve been hearing about Collapse for about 3 years now. It’s always…”we’re just 3-6 months away now..”
        NO, its been YEARS…. Where is it!!??
        This idea of collapse is now a big money making effort and won’t stop until everyone gets tired of it.
        I’m ready, but I’m also bored with all the rhetoric

        • Prepperman, What does “ready” feel like?
          I’m far from ready, I’m damn glad to have a few more months to finish my preps. I hope they can keep the bubble blown up till next summer, I think they will do all they can to keep it going until next November’s election. After that, all bets are off.

          • MOUNT, I said MOUNT!

        • Who did you vote for and why?

        • None of us will ever be truly “ready”.

        • Celente et al have been defeated (thus far) by things like extend and pretent, QE, etc. The timeline may be off (Orlov says always +- half a decade), but it is easy to see that the world (our part, at least) is in for a major reset.

      11. We will collapse, but not yet. We still have a ways to go. Trust me it will not happen till sometime in the middle of Obama’s second term and of course it will be Bushes fault.

        So live it up while you can!!

        • That may be the plan, but the best laid plans of mice and men…

          • Hey, don’t steal MY moniker/avatar: BEN DOVER! (BEN DOVER – I came up with that! Create your own name, idiot!)

      12. Extend and Pretend. They’re getting pretty good at this game. The truth is… That is the only logical response from the elites minds. If the masses knew what lie ahead they would surely not be watching reality shows each evening. They would demand competence from their GOV. They would be up in arms right now. This is why they pretend. it makes it all last a little longer before the real pain hits us all.

      13. These are “the good old days” that we are living in right now. In spite of all the bad things happening all around us……. it doesn’t get any better than it is right now. Is that all there is? Get used to it homies ….. it gets much worse for the entire world in a very short period of time.

        Hurry up UPS and get that one last package delivered!!!

        • It’s from Victoria’s Secret and me and the wife just gotta have it!


      15. The biggest distraction right now from the August 3 deadline that’s going to bring us all down, is not what’s making news, IT IS THE NEWS!! Mr Murdoch to be exact. The whole world is in recoil about these allegations. The US and UK government’s are milking this for all the “old cows worth!!! What better way to finish the Great “shell game” than to discredit all media outlets and at the same time wipe ALL the real news, like the EU collapse, the Credit Ceiling debacle, the UK collapse, the total collapse of the US economy and the employment lies. Australia’s economic woes caused be the Carbon Tax, the Asian slow down and Chinas multi bubble environment thats rushing up and set to burst. And, of course the Middle East crisis.
        We are so very close. My bet is that this Christmas ….. 2011 ….. Will be The Worst Christmas EVER. And as that old adage of the British troops in the trenches in 1914 (WW1) It’ll be over by Christmas? Well, I think by Christmas ….. It’ll only be just starting.
        Move fast, stay low!

      16. Hey Mushy, where you bean? Working on diesel engines? We miss your sarcasm, and sage financial advice [crisp new $10 bills]

      17. SHOCKEDANDAMAZED find a bible pre 50’s version most of those older versions usually have maps of that part of the world in the back if you find them you will find that all that land was PALESTINE NO MENTION OF ISRAEL AT ALL THAT AGREEMENT WAS MADE BETWEEN GERMANY ENGLAND AND THE JEWS IN GERMANY THE DEAL WAS IF ENGLAND WOULD GET THE US INTO THE WAR WITH GERMANY AND DEFEAT THEM THEN ENGLAND WOULD HAVE TO PROMISE THE JEWS A HOMELAND WHICH HAPPENED AND England fulfilled the promise after WW11 AND IN 1948 THE NATION WE KNOW AS ISRAEL WAS BORN

        • I just viewed my first husband’s old Bible presented to him in the 50’s…it does have maps in the back…and one says South Palestine and one says North Palstine…


      19. Okay, at the risk of sounding all high and mighty (or maybe it’s mighty high?)…

        I think those of us here who are serious about being self-sufficient and reliant have taken it heart and adopted a lifestyle as such. We have networked with like-minded folks and barter/trade and live within our means, keeping our eyes open, working hard to do the best we can every day. Even those here who are strapped are making an effort to live this way. Do we all have PV arrays, wood heat, live off grid and have acres of land? No, we don’t. But I believe we who read here are going to survive and live out our lives regardless of what shinanigans the government goons and the economic swindlers come up with. You just can’t keep good folks down.
        Okay, now that I’m done being all warm and fuzzy, back to the government/economy bashing!

      20. I’m starting to think that the US debt ceiling nonsense, EU/UK collapse, Jennifer Lopez/Marc Anthony divorce are all just distraction for some sort of major natural cataclysmic disaster heading our way this September through November.

        NASA shut down its space programs, while governments and TPTB are all acting as if something is going to happen but they are keeping quiet about it.

        I don’t think were going to see a major false flag event, its going to be too obvious at this point. What are they going to do, kill Bin Laden…again?

        If these predictions of Elenin/Niburu/Dwarf Brown Stars/etc…doesn’t happen at all this fall/winter, then rest assure that anymore predictions are all bunk.

        • I mostly worry about what will become of Casey.

          Probably a lot of disappointed bulldykes in FLA prisons.

      21. The British would expand themselves to death, the Germans would arm themselves to death, and the Americans would loan themselves to death.

        Author unknown…

        The time has come.

      22. Signs you know for realz it’s over:

        1) You would rather have a slice of bread than an ounce of gold.
        2) Most of your family is either dead or missing
        3) The internet no longer works.
        4) You lie awake at night waiting for the knock at the door.
        5) You really don’t give a shit about any of it any longer.

        • We have to beg AlGore to turn it back on.

          • Didn’t he only invent it?

      23. Bob Chapman has true grit.

        Tuesdays on RBN with Bob, John and Robby on the National Intel Report.
        Great Show.

      24. Remember Barack Obama’s desire to form a “national civilian security force” (See video clip from 2008 speech.)

        Click on the link to view the 213 page report – “A Stability Police Force for the United States”
        Justification and Options for Creating U.S. Capabilities

        Included in this report is evaluating the “behavior of U.S. residents.”

      25. The mother of all sovereign debt crises will be in the United States, BUT we must wait for Europe to fail first and I would expect that this fall/winter and not here in the US.

        Give it another year or so before America’s “can” that’s been kick down the road hits a wall before the bottom falls out of the $USD.

        I hear in your comments that some of you are frustrated and think this is all false flags, but the minute you let your guard down it will hit you like a title wave.

        The Fed and the Government stills has tricks up their sleeve. “The Game Is Over” but the US is still playing because they refuse to believe they lost.

        …Good by the world we’ve known! Its just a matter of time! Thank your lucky stars you still have time to prep! At least here in the good old US of A.

      26. Visit for interviews with Bob Chapman twice a month. He also post the interviews on youtube too. Bob has a lot of insight on what’s really going on & I love to hear what he has to say.

      27. Pusillaninmous Prognostication Pansies Perplex Preppers

        Bob Chapman is undoubtedly smarter than me ( he gets paid to write drivel and I do it for free, plus his is much more…uh…drivelly) but that aint sayin’ much. First, I agree that $266,000 per gubmint job created is a bit much. Location partly determines price though. In Oklahoma that same money would buy you 3 politicians, 5 bureaucrats and a first round draft pick in the leiutenant governors race. In Illinois it’ll get you one-fourth of an appointment to a US senate seat. And in California it’ll pay 12, count ’em, 12 minutes of maintaining the whole state government. It all depends on where you shop I guess.
        Also, I think Mr Chapman is right that the euro, the dollar and most other currencies are headed down the toilet, except in France where it’s going down the bidet and Oklahoma where it’s going in the outhouse.
        I don’t dispute his analysis, but I see no reason to present this as urgent news and then conclude with “There is no question now that the game is over. The question now is when?” Fat lot of good that does me. We all know that our whole national economy is like Wyle E Coyote in the cartoons. We’ve already stepped out past the cliff edge. What we’re doing now is making that low whistling noise as we fall. Now just tell me specifically, when do we make the ‘poof’ sound and the dust cloud on the canyon floor? That’s all I’m asking. I want to know WHEN to expect the true crash. C’mon, where’s your Harold Camping spirit? Make a prediction so I can put on my track shoes and run through the streets screaming. And there better be a real crash too. The last three false alarms just got me arrested then ridiculed by the neighbors. I need a definite date. Bring on the s! I already got a fan. (meep, meep)

        • When is impssible to tell for us ” commoners.”. QE3 will likely help buy Obumpkin another four years. It might even help him get Pelosi back? We are in stagflation. It could go on for 20 years. Real market conditions are deflationary, but the printing press is keeping that at bay. When the rubber band snaps wath out.

          My key indicator is on the dollar. If we can print it, and the vast majority of producers give us oil, gold and products for it then SHTF is still off. Watch Hugo lead the charge, for he now owns the worlds biggest oil reserve.

          • I agree, ‘when’ is impossible to tell. It just gets frustrating sometimes. Standard of living keeps dropping. Took a pay cut three yrs ago and haven’t got any of that back yet. Still, I shouldn’t whine too much. Some friends and family are still looking for a job, others have given up and taken the career path back into fast food or wally world jobs, or just given up altogether. It seems like we’re living in a twilight zone of hesitancy, expectation and other multi-syllable words…

        • lol!!!

      28. What about loo? It’s getting where a man can’t even go to can in peace around here.

        Speaking of sky-diving, so good so far. I carry a crash dummy in my truck so I can drive the HOV lane.

        • Me too, and some mornings I’m so tired I let the dummy drive. He gets less scrutiny at the weigh stations than me. And he runs a legal logbook, never a ticket.

      29. The SHTF won’t happen due to economic/financial collapse on its own natural course considering the Fed can always intervene and print money to infinity. Other nations will continuously buy oil in US dollars because if they don’t, they’ll get killed. The military industrial complex of Israel/US/UK/etc is so powerful, it even struck fear into God.

        We will continue to suffer as this grand Ponzi scheme, slave system keeps going. Those who are unemployed will take the heat from family and loved ones, while feeling ashamed of themselves because they will never make ends meet as before. We will continue to be ridiculed by the sheeple and even our loved ones. Relationships will be destroyed as well as our own sanity and our own lives. The fact is that the working sheeple who have jobs, don’t see anything wrong because they are too preoccupied and stressed from work. So they will look down upon the unemployed and even those who are awakened and employed.

        For the SHTF to happen at this point, we’ll need major, major natural cataclysmic events to occur throughout the world. So if this Elenin/Dwarf Brown Star/Niburu doesn’t crash into Earth this fall/winter, then we are pretty much slaves to the NWO for the remainder of this century.

      30. I have a swedish blow up female autopilot but she had a leak at high altitude, so I had to tape it shut.

      31. If the “Worshippers of the Sphere” we’re told at half time that the entire economy collapsed and their money was worthless a good percentage of them would stay to watch the rest of the big game.

        I know so many that are so ignorant and truly wish to remain so that the look on their faces when this happens will make the cover of Time Magazine. It will be an iconic image. The title will probably be “What Happened?”.

      32. The collapse is happening at a slow steady pace, but at any time the floor can fall out. It will only take one big event to send everything into an immediate tail spin. We have a culmination of events like never before…on a worldwide scale. We are looking at economic collapse, war, food shortages, natural disasters, riots etc. all coming together at once. All of these have never happened in unison at the worldwide level. Hopefully you have been making preparations over the past year or two because the immediate fall-out can happen at any time. Best of luck to everyone

      33. If you want to stop this sham continuing there’s one fast, effective, easy protest:

        Stop Paying Your Taxes

        Yep, it’s that simple. Simple as not sponsoring any longer the crooked politicians, paying their corporate parasites and ending the military-industrial complex.

        It all come crashing down when a few million citizens stop paying tax which in turn collapses the revenue stream that pays all the Govt debt.

        Zero Tax = Zero Govt = Zero Corruption

      34. The EU/US Central Bankers have two primary stated goals: 1) Global Neo-feudalism, via debt, for Nations and Individuals, & 2) Global De-population. ALL other considerations about what is happening in the world, currently, stem from these two long-held objectives, of the EU/US Central Bankers. They want to rule over a much reduced human population, of some 500 Million or so, people – who are basically their servants or slaves. That means, hey – 5.5 BILLION of us simply have to go! The 500 million that remain, will simply be their feudal serfs, in their global, medieval village or plantation, where the serfs or slaves do the back-breaking work, and the Lords, or Bankers, and their Associates, and Goons, live the good life, no doubt involving caviar, martinis, sex orgies, etc.

        Keiser Report: Mass Psychosis (E167), there are PLENTY of things Americans can actually do, to EMPOWER THEMSELVES, and not be so dependent, upon THEIR SYSTEM:

        “AVOID SHOPPING AS ‘RETAIL THERAPY’ (Instead, jog, meditate, read, or find some other solution).

        “When you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion–when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing–when you see that money is flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors–when you see that men get richer by graft and by pull than by work, and your laws don’t protect you against them, but protect them against you–when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice–you may know that your society is doomed.”……….Atlas Shrugged
