11 Predictions Of Economic Disaster In 2015 From Top Experts All Over The Globe

The following article has been generously contributed by Michael Snyder, founder of The Economic Collapse Blog and author of The Beginning of the End.

crisis-signWill 2015 be a year of financial crashes, economic chaos and the start of the next great worldwide depression?  Over the past couple of years, we have all watched as global financial bubbles have gotten larger and larger.  Despite predictions that they could burst at any time, they have just continued to expand.  But just like we witnessed in 2001 and 2008, all financial bubbles come to an end at some point, and when they do implode the pain can be extreme.  Personally, I am entirely convinced that the financial markets are more primed for a financial collapse now than they have been at any other time since the last crisis happened nearly seven years ago.  And I am certainly not alone.  At this point, the warning cries have become a deafening roar as a whole host of prominent voices have stepped forward to sound the alarm.  The following are 11 predictions of economic disaster in 2015 from top experts all over the globe…

#1 Bill Fleckenstein: “They are trying to make the stock market go up and drag the economy along with it. It’s not going to work. There’s going to be a big accident. When people realize that it’s all a charade, the dollar will tank, the stock market will tank, and hopefully bond markets will tank. Gold will rally in that period of time because it’s done what it’s done because people have assumed complete infallibility on the part of the central bankers.”

#2 John Ficenec: “In the US, Professor Robert Shiller’s cyclically adjusted price earnings ratio – or Shiller CAPE – for the S&P 500 is currently at 27.2, some 64pc above the historic average of 16.6. On only three occasions since 1882 has it been higher – in 1929, 2000 and 2007.”

#3 Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, one of the most respected economic journalists on the entire planet: “The eurozone will be in deflation by February, forlornly trying to ignite its damp wood by rubbing stones. Real interest rates will ratchet higher. The debt load will continue to rise at a faster pace than nominal GDP across Club Med. The region will sink deeper into a compound interest trap.”

#4 The Jerome Levy Forecasting Center, which correctly predicted the bursting of the subprime mortgage bubble in 2007: “Clearly the direction of most of the recent global economic news suggests movement toward a 2015 downturn.”

#5 Paul Craig Roberts: “At any time the Western house of cards could collapse. It (the financial system) is a house of cards. There are no economic fundamentals that support stock prices — the Dow Jones. There are no economic fundamentals that support the strong dollar…”

#6 David Tice: “I have the same kind of feel in ’98 and ’99; also ’05 and ’06.  This is going to end badly. I have every confidence in the world.”

#7 Liz Capo McCormick and Susanne Walker: “Get ready for a disastrous year for U.S. government bonds. That’s the message forecasters on Wall Street are sending.”

#8 Phoenix Capital Research: “Just about everything will be hit as well. Most of the ‘recovery’ of the last five years has been fueled by cheap borrowed Dollars. Now that the US Dollar has broken out of a multi-year range, you’re going to see more and more ‘risk assets’ (read: projects or investments fueled by borrowed Dollars) blow up. Oil is just the beginning, not a standalone story.

If things really pick up steam, there’s over $9 TRILLION worth of potential explosions waiting in the wings. Imagine if the entire economies of both Germany and Japan exploded and you’ve got a decent idea of the size of the potential impact on the financial system.”

#9 Rob Kirby: “What this breakdown in the crude oil price is going to spawn another financial crisis.  It will be tied to the junk debt that has been issued to finance the shale oil plays in North America.  It is reported to be in the area of half a trillion dollars worth of junk debt that is held largely on the books of large financial institutions in the western world.  When these bonds start to fail, they will jeopardize the future of these financial institutions.  I do believe that will be the signal for the Fed to come riding to the rescue with QE4.  I also think QE4 is likely going to be accompanied by bank bail-ins because we all know all western world countries have adopted bail-in legislation in their most recent budgets.  The financial elites are engineering the excuse for their next round of money printing . . .  and they will be confiscating money out of savings accounts and pension accounts.  That’s what I think is coming in the very near future.”

#10 John Ing: “The 2008 collapse was just a dress rehearsal compared to what the world is going to face this time around. This time we have governments which are even more highly leveraged than the private sector was.

So this time the collapse will be on a scale that is many magnitudes greater than what the world witnessed in 2008.”

#11 Gerald Celente: “What does the word confidence mean? Break it down. In this case confidence = con men and con game. That’s all it is. So people will lose confidence in the con men because they have already shown their cards. It’s a Ponzi scheme. So the con game is running out and they don’t have any more cards to play.

What are they going to do? They can’t raise interest rates. We saw what happened in the beginning of December when the equity markets started to unravel. So it will be a loss of confidence in the con game and the con game is soon coming to an end. That is when you are going to see panic on Wall Street and around the world.”

If you have been following my website, you know that I have been pointing to 2015 for quite some time now.

For example, in my article entitled “The Seven Year Cycle Of Economic Crashes That Everyone Is Talking About“, I discussed the pattern of financial crashes that we have witnessed every seven years that goes all the way back to the Great Depression.  The last two major stock market crashes began in 2001 and 2008, and now here we are seven years later.

Will the same pattern hold up once again?

In addition, there are many other economic cycles that seem to indicate that we are due for a major economic downturn.  I discussed quite a few of these theories in my article entitled “If Economic Cycle Theorists Are Correct, 2015 To 2020 Will Be Pure Hell For The United States“.

But just like in 2000 and 2007, there are a whole host of doubters that are fully convinced that the party can continue indefinitely.  Even though our economic fundamentals continue to get worse, our debt levels continue to grow and every objective measurement shows that Wall Street is more reckless and more vulnerable to collapse than ever before, they mock the idea that a financial collapse is imminent.

So let’s see what happens in 2015.

I have a feeling that it is going to be an extremely “interesting” year.

      anybody read THE HARBINGER by Jonathan Cahn ?

      he says 9-11 was essentially a divine warning
      one that was ignored

      and that there will be another major economic collapse at the end of the year right around Sept/Oct

      • Mountain Trekker

        Whether you vote or not, if you live in a Dist that has a Republican Representative in the US House, please call or email them today and tell them to vote John Boehner “OUT” as Speaker Of The House. He is a Progressive that has voted way to many times with Obama on issues that we as Patriots absolutely hate. Don’t wait, do it now, I heard they vote on this Tomorrow. He is the Party Machine so if they don’t get a flood of calls or emails he will be retained as Speaker. Trekker Out.

        • Muddy

          Everybody save this article and re-read it a year from now. I tried to find Snyder’s predictions for 2014 but they can’t be found. If these “experts” are so good why did they not foresee the collapse in the price of oil? I heard no predictions regarding the collapse in oil, or that the collapse would bring about economic troubles.

          As for #11, Celente, for course he’s been pointing to 2015 for some time now, he’s missed so many times in prior years, and quarters within those years he has no choice but to point to this year, and 2016, 2017… Even a broken clock is correct twice a day which is more than I can say for Celente.

          In the meantime, keep prepping to soften any blow that might come your way.

          MT, while I applaud your post and intentions I am afraid even kicking Boehner out won’t make a difference. I sincerely hoped that I’ll be wrong with the system already played all of us for many decades. Who would be the replacement? Will the replacement is honest and fearless enough to call the system a total corruption that it is? My confidence level is below zero with any such so called political games games.

          • Mountain Trekker

            Stolz you are most likely correct, but sometime we must take some sort of action other than to sit and complain and attack each other. Atleast we let them know we are here and watching THEIR actions. Trekker Out.

              Stolz and MT;
              I agree with both of you. I think voting is a sham and these asshats are selected not elected. But I have been known to be wrong (just ask my wife) so I continue to play the voting game just in case.

          What possible difference do you think it will make?

          If you can convince me that a different speaker could postpone the inevitable so I have a few more years to prep I’ll do it.

          • sixpack

            I wouldn’t say that a different speaker could influence the inevitable, but a decent one might at least STOP OBSTRUCTING what few bills come up that might make a difference.

            Harry Reid, as Majority leader, sure as hell tabled everything that could’ve stopped some of the madness. He apparently has hundreds of bills that he never allowed to even come to the floor for a vote.

        My gut feeling is that there will be a financial collapse the likes of which the world has never seen. Of course, there is always a chance we will get blindsided by something else but an economic armageddon is an absolute certainty – maybe “they” can keep the rudderless boat afloat a while longer, but I doubt it.

        2015 is my guess too, but what do I know? I’m just an average guy who runs a small business and got himself into a good position because I don’t believe the crap I am force fed daily and make my own decisions.

        Having no debt is the first step to flipping the bird to those who want to control you.

          That’s right, Aussie down under,

          Just wonderin if you folks have any UFO activity down your way…..
          Warning: the following is based upon interpretation and may be too heavy for some to read.

          UFO sightings are ramping up. The latest sightings and footprints of large/giant beings from the site of the second tallest peak, and active Popocatepetl volcano, in Central Mexico. The creatures stood upright like a man, around eight feet tall, but covered large areas of land, quickly, like they had been propelled. The witnesses said they covered the same amount of ground in fifteen minutes that would take an average mountain climber to cover in three hours or more. They left large footprints that were claw-like.

          Activity and sightings are on the increase in California, Arizona, New Mexico and other states in the west.

          What does all this mean? Do they know something we don’t? Is their increased activity related to changes within the earths plates shifting?

          It is all possible. I have believed for many decades that the UFOs/aliens lived within the earth’s core. Volcanos would be perfect entrance and exit portals. Does TPTB know about them, or have communication?

          I also believe there is a direct correlation to the evil spirits of the fallen angels/ Nephilim, and the Giants/hybrids, their offspring, spoken of in the book of Genesis.

          Their current increased activity, and being of demonic nature, seems to be increasing with the likelihood of these being the “end of days”, and the “times of tribulation”.

          I have pondered and studied the scriptures about the “locust”, spoken of by John, the Revelator.
          To make a clearer understanding of what is to come and how there is a relationship between the evil beings of the past (giants/fallen angels) and the evil beings that are coming in the last days; the fallen angels that were taken back into the spirit dimension of Heaven/paradise; by God. Noah’s flood and the second influx of the fallen angels, plus the possibility that some giants/geebar/hybrids, were able to escape the flood, I begin with the prophetic word from the minor prophet Joel.

          Joe 1:3 Tell ye your children of it, and let your children tell their children, and their children another generation. (This is for the future generations of the last days. The ancient Cherokee Indians have a common legend of a giant manly beast, called Judaculla, that could leap very long distances, and holds much scientific/archaeological truth, in their beliefs, within their folklore in western North Carolina )
          Joe 1:6 For a nation is come up upon my land, strong, and without number, whose teeth are the teeth of a lion, and he hath the cheek teeth of a great lion.
          ( Not a nation as we know of, like a country with flesh peoples and laws and leaders, but a nation of beings, an army, that comes “up” from somewhere, that God is going to use to bring judgment upon a world of unbelievers. If they come “up”, then they must have been down, or hidden, or suppressed.)
          Joe 1:15 Alas for the day! for the day of the LORD is at hand, and as a destruction from the Almighty shall it come. ( the day of the Lord is the time of tribulation leading up to His time of Return & Reign, for one thousand years, so these words in Joel are not about the past, or what was happening right then, it is for the future, the Lord’s Day.)
          Joe 2:1 ¶ Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand;
          Joe 2:3 A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them. (Fire.. as in volcano, molten fire within the earth? When they come out, the earth before them has the appearance like a garden of Eden, compared to what is “behind them, where the flame burneth, a desolate wilderness”? )
          Joe 2:4 The appearance of them is as the appearance of horses;…(Big and strong, able to clear long distances ten times faster than a flesh man)
          Joe 2:5 Like the noise of chariots on the tops of mountains shall they leap, ….
          (spacecraft, over, and out of, tops of mountains as a line of chariots?)
          Joe 2:8 Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path: and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded. (like robots, and not flesh, can’t be wounded or destroyed)
          Joe 2:9 They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they shall climb up upon the houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief. ( They can come into your home at will, unless you have the protection of the Holy Spirit. Many people have awoken with beings inside their bedroom, or outside their windows. Some have even been abducted.)

          Joe 2:25 And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you. (Remember..for every negative there is a positive, and just as with God’s great army of Holy angels, there is that army of evil angels and beings, that can be referred to as the “locust army”. More on that to follow from Revelation)_

          Joe 2:18 ¶ Then will the LORD be jealous for his land, and pity his people. (Here we switch gears a little bit, and go to the next major event to take place, called the Gog/Magog invasion.)
          Joe 2:20 But I will remove far off from you the northern army, and will drive him into a land barren and desolate, with his face toward the east sea, and his hinder part toward the utmost sea, and his stink shall come up,…..
          Joe 2:27 And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the LORD your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed.
          ( God destroys this Russian led federation army that comes against the house of Israel and the whole world will then see, and most will believe. God’s true Christian children are not ashamed for all the pc liberal bashing they have received, because of their biblical beliefs.)
          Joe 2:28 ¶ And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh;….. ( not just the elect, that have always believed and stood strong, and received divine intervention into their lives. God is a consuming fire. For the believers it is an all encompassing warmth and security; for the non-believers and evil ones, it is a burning fire as heaping coals upon their head and their minds, with never ending worries because of their iniquities. )

          Back to the writings that describe the possibility of the UFOs and aliens being from within the earth, and set aside from the beginning, for God’s purpose in the last days.

          Rev 9:2 And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. (as an opening from a volcano?)
          Rev 9:3 And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. (Aliens? to scare and probe those that are not under protection, but unable to kill a flesh person?)
          Rev 9:5 And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man. (five months? The time Christ shortened Satan’s tribulation to, from the previous 3 ½ years? Time given to all evil beings to try man’s spirit and soul. The evil beings as spirits of the lost giants/hybrids and their fathers, the fallen angels/Nephilim (7000 strong), as they are released back to earth for their final five months. Together, they make up the “Locust Army”. The aliens, as we call them are here now and rampin’ up for the return of their War Generals, ten of the most evil of the fallen Angels.)
          Rev 9:7 And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men.
          (as John saw them and described them as best as he could, just like in Joel 2:4, they have the appearance of being big, strong , and fast like a horse.) Good job, John the Revelator.
          Rev 9:8 And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions. (remember Joel 1:6…teeth of a lion; The giants had double rows of teeth also to rip and tear meat like a lion, and probably never cut their hair)
          Rev 9:11 And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, ….

          Their king is Satan, the creator of evil, and leader of evil doers in both dimensions. He is coming at the sixth trump. If a great spaceship lands and has a man that looks and acts like Christ, and is calling himself Christ, and you are “still” in a flesh body…It ain’t Christ, and you have missed the pretrib rapture. Since you got five months before the true Christ returns, better have those preps in place, or be prepared to bend a knee to Baal. Baal worship..Is Satan worship/mark of the Beast, and death of the soul. So you can see how clinging to the belief of a pre-trib rapture doctrine could be very devastating when it doesn’t happen. It could lead one into Hell.

              I don’t expect everyone to be able to understand it, nor do i think I am the only one that sees the end of days unfolding as the way the prophets explained they would.

              It is hard enough to talk about such scary things as a true full faithed person as i am, but it is all a part of being prepped, and prepared, for whatever is thrown at us.

              You don’t have to tell anyone about it, slingshot. You either believe it is possible or believe it is all bunk.

              But, i can guarantee you one thing, there is an army coming to this earth that is not of this world and is not in flesh bodies. All the guns and bombs invented can’t or won’t kill them. That is God’s business.

              When things start going whacky weasel, and if you see flying craft and wierd artificial intelligence on TV or on the street, then you can make up your own mind as i surely will do.

              I just know where my protection comes from and it ain’t shtf folks or gov.
              Most shtf regulars are just mouth pieces with no backbone. People with nothing better to do than spout bull shit from a keyboard. They wouldn’t know truth if it walked up and slapped the shit out of them.
              I ain’t gonna run and hide when shtf, nor am i gonna be looking for someone to back me up or bail me out.
              It is all between me and my Saviour, and we got a good thing going on.

                Maybe I have too much on my plate to handle now. What was posted was the first time I ever heard of those passages. Might not be too far off with all the whacky stuff happening now.

                Consider this. Sometimes the mixing of survival/Preps with religious points does not win people over to our side.

                • passinwiththewind

                  No offense slingshot, i have always thought you were one of the good guys and still think highly of you because of your comments.

                  To me there is no such thing as mixing “of survival/preps, and religious points”.

                  They are both just a fact of being prepared, in my book. In fact the biblical points (not religious because religion is based on denominationalism, and I am not of, or for, any denomination /organized religion), i make, are more about being prepared than some prepping techniques, or bull shit headlines we discuss on here.

                  Being biblically prepared is basically a person’s first line of defense. If it isn’t their first priority than maybe it should be. To not be spiritually prepared is almost like being fully dependant upon ones own devices.
                  That usually doesn’t have a very positive outcome in a true shtf,grid down, situation.

                  In the best case scenario, one will have the spiritually backed provisions in place, and not have to use them; which is way better than needing them and not having a clue as to where to begin getting them.

                  Everyone has to sail their own ship and everyone has a scroll button or esc., so they don’t have to read my points. I ain’t a preacher and i ain’t preaching to anyone. i just add a different perspective to the mix based on what i believe to be truth.

                  I’m just sayin’…what if?

            Because Russia is your enemy doesnt make it Gods enemy. Everyone pencilling in Mr Putin as the antichrist because they dont like him makes no sense. Everyone starts by liking the antichrist hes charismatic.

              Alice,
              I hear more and more Christians thinking Obama is the antichrist. I have a hard time seeing Obama as the antichrist because he isn’t respectable enough. You are right, people start out liking the antichrist. They started out liking Obama enough for him to be the antichrist, but now he seems too inept. The antichrist will be gutsy enough to challenge the Lord Jesus Christ. I just don’t see Obama as having the balls. Putin would be a more respectable antichrist.

          • passinwiththewind

            I am with you satori,

            There are too many things that went on with 9-11, to be coincidences and too many reasons why God will send judgement upon folks right where their “gods” live…in their bank accounts and pocketbooks.

            I listened to Cohn from the beginning and found most of what he says, to be biblical based. I don’t even care that he calls himself a jew. That is his personal deal with God. I seek truth wherever i can find it.

            We are in for a reckoning, that most people can’t and won’t see because they think in terms of worldliness.
            The earth willbecome a battlefield where the natural/physical world and the spiritual world will collide. Humans are just caught up in the middle and have to make a decision about which side they had rather be on. There are two sides.

            Few have eyes to see or ears to ear and are more interested in casting turds at people of faith and their biblical truth researchings.
            They aren’t true christians at heart so they only can see things thru eyes of the world.

            God says if you love the world, then the love of God is not in you.

            Not a good position to be in when the shtf and one finds themselves clinging to what man has to offer for the future.

            Just sayin’

          • Stolz Vorfahren

            Satori, I’ll read the book but my comment was specific to the fact that 9/11 was a setup by the ZOG and their puppets named Saudi Royal family. However assuming 9/11 was God’s punishment as the author stated I am afraid the next punishment would be a total destruction of American Vs two Jewish owned buildings who’s owner was trying to collect some insurance money as well. After what the zionist banksters did and are doing in Ukraine, Syria via direct wars and bloodshed and then Greece and Europe and basically the entire world via financial crimes leading to so much misery for millions and millions of regular men, women and children then God help us all when the revenge and punishment comes.

            The SOB’s are destroying innocent lives each day while crying for their fake 6 million numbers.

          • ENFP

            Thanks Satori for the link. Very interesting.

        • Johnnycomelately

          Well now. That depends on your perspective. There are some (Myself included) who believe that God has lifted His protection from America. If that’s the case then 9-11 is a wakeup call and can be seen as evidence of God no longer protecting this country. Seems clear to me.

        That is one of the latest books I have read that I had on a to read list. My kid’s teacher and I swapped books from our library over the Christmas break. She sent me the Harbinger and I sent her the Fourth Turning.

      • Scavenger

        Right in line with that (divine warnings)…Oct 28th 2015, the last of four sequential “blood moons” (tetrad) occurs and syncs with Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles). Spooky stuff.

      • LObamatomy

        Yes, it’s the shimitah year. Should occur mid-late September. Biblically, debts are forgiven. Maybe today that means ‘excess is taken off the top’. Like in ’08; an ‘off the top year’…

        This is the 7th year of ’08 yes? 7’s are special no doubt-

        What’s next? Typically a societal regression towards being “human”. Granted, this is not absolute, but people tend to trend towards ‘what is important’. Including valuations, especially what is physically held.

      • BJ

        @Satori,
        That’s what I have been mentioning here with the Great Shemitah by Cahn along with The Harbinger, Isaiah 9:10 Judgement.

        The warning wasn’t only ignored, it was thrown back in God’s face with some blatant rebellion. Remember the speech by John Edwards and then Tom Daschle?

        You put that together with the Armstrong computer prediction, isn’t the budget due up about that time as well. Then add the fourth blood moon of a Tetrad (not an exact date of calamity, but a time window) and the fact that an accountant with the federal reserve told a friend of mine that if we are able to squeak it through 2014, then 2015 would have to be IT!

        I have never really been or wanted to be a date person…more of a season person, and I am pretty sure this is the season. If election time of 2016 gets here and we are still here rinse and repeating….then me and a few good friends I know are going to change the way we view and do things.

      • Old Nam Vet

        Yes I have read it also the vids of him referring to the 7 yr cycle of events. Sept 11,2001, Sept of 2008 the markets nearly collapsed and Sept 2015 would meet the 7 yr. I would prepare for a complete collapse this coming Sept around Jewish calender Rosh Hashanah

      If it happens I’ll have years of planning and preparing under my belt. And, It will still be very tough.

      But more likely I’ll show up every month or so in 2016 to post that I just don’t believe it. The economy is always going to crash any minute now… So be smart with the little money we all still have. Make plans that will leave you in a good place whether things go terribly wrong or whether they keep coasting along the way they have the last 8 years.

      And please stop saying that dollars are worthless and gold has immense inherent value – its getting embarrassing.

          Once you’ve purchased all your other preps, have trained, have a great garden, are familiar with how all your stuff works, and have a great library on how to prep and do all of the above; consider investing in precious metals.

        • fishandmud

          @ hammerhead : I have said this before, pm’s are only worth what the next guy is willing to pay. I got down one time and had to sell my silver. Did not even get spot price. Could not even sell some of it at all. If you are rich or very well off then buy pm’s, other wise buy beans, rice, bullets, spring kits ( for firearms ), toilet paper, gunpowder, spices, etc, etc, etc. Good luck and keep prepping. Nobody is ready for what is coming.

      Most of the time one doesn’t tear a house down and destroy it, they might remodel it, but not destroy it. To rebuild a house sometimes you have to get in there and beat some things together.

      I am not a believer in experts and time frames, but there is no doubt the economy world wide is going to implode. It happens over and over in history. The king, emperor, prime minister or president of the great nation finds he can divert money to himself and his preferred citizens. Once this happens it becomes the same as a card game with a house cut. The players vie for a smaller and smaller pot with the house taking a bigger percentage until the game collapses de to bankrupt players.

      No worries for the casino/government though. The players always find more money and flock back for another fleecing.

              That sound like a great load. I looked it up very good choice. I load 23Gr of 296 with a Winchester mag pistol primer, 240Gr XTP soft point or XTP H.P.
              You also use Starline brass, they make a good product.
              The round I load is great in my Desert Eagle, and my Mod 29 S&W. I also have a 4 inch Taurus Mod44 six shot. This one took two round at a shoulder shot to put down a 225Lbs. Porky at 40 yards.

            Sarge, the hog was around 157 lbs so wasn’t really a big one I was hoping for. This was my first revolver hunt with a single action Ruger SBH. I had a chance to take the send one next to one I shot since he jumped but then stopped for a brief few seconds but I was way too slow and for the second shot to bring the hammer back. Need practice for sure.

            I hunted in a private land / farm and the owner made some lunch with a well marinated meet from the earlier pig and it was really good. The one that I shot went to one of his farm worker who has 5 kids and I he was really happy.

            And yes I am hooked and can’t wait for the next round. My son had his chance with his 30×30 lever gun but the shot was around 100 yards and it was getting dark and he just couldn’t aim well with regular sites. However that doesn’t stop me to drive him crazy by reminding him about his missed shot. lol.

            I just love hunting with this Ruger but it would be a while to be like you as far as head shots. I’ll get there soon.

            God I love talking about hunts and guns. God bless Sarge and will chat later.

              A little advice when pig hunting try to keep your pigs around 300LBS or less. They get any bigger they start getting a very gamy taste.

              Keep working on your son about missing. I work on my brother and my wife all the time about missing, because I know that they will work me when I miss one.

              Remember What I have always said. AIM SMALL MISS SMALL. Use two hands relax and breath, and squeeze.

      The book of revelation has fortold of the last days, tribulation, and armageddon. No-one except God himself knows the day or hour. But all the signs that the end of days are obvious. “wars, famines, plagues, earthquakes, etc…” Same goes with the inevitable financial collapse. The birth pangs have already happened.

      The Coming of the New World

      “It can be said that our world is really many worlds containing people at various levels of consciousness and behavior patterns, living within different geographical environments. So what may be truth for one level of consciousness and for one environment is probably not true for another.

      Some parts of the world reflect more negativity than other parts. Some parts are so negative that they are unable to embody constructive energy of expression. Also, some parts of the world will experience disastrous impacts either from human causes such as wars, and so forth, or from natural causes, such as earthquakes, tidal waves, fires, and so forth.

      The earth at the present time is undergoing a cleansing of excess negativity. So, disasters of one nature or another will occur unless there are forces of creativity emerging in a strong fashion to neutralize the destructive forces. If we are in tune with God then a protective shield will surround us and keep us safe.

      In this world we experience just what we attract to ourselves, and this is determined by our attitude and by our devotion to God. Those who are in the process of expressing a more enlightened and positive awareness in life, are attracting to themselves only creative and positive experiences. Their world holds no suffering or disaster for them – such is the nature of the world and the nature of nature itself.

      At the present time we live in a dual world; one open to experiencing negativity and destruction, the other open to manifesting positive creativity and peace in the world. The coming of the New Age heralds many changes; some radical and some not so severe. These changes, though resisted by many, will come. They will be destructive to many, yet uplifting to others. It will be the end of the world for many, yet the beginning of a new world for many more. If we live the law, the law will support us. If we do not support the law, we will be abandoned by the same law. The first law of creation is the law of love.

      In the future there will be many souls who will not be able to incarnate on this planet, for to do so would be to expose themselves to vibrations beyond their ability to withstand. On the other hand, there are numerous higher beings who would like to incarnate upon this earth, only the vibrations at present are too low and too gross for them, because the earth of today has very intense material vibrations of a low nature. The earth of tomorrow will, however, be a vastly different heavenly earth. That is why it will be called, Heaven on Earth.

      Many people feel that destruction is a fast way into the New Age, but it is not. It only creates new burdens and in many cases retards our progress. The object is not to destroy the old, but rather to superimpose the new over the old. The earth did not create the low vibrations. The humans did this.

      The earth is now in the process of raising its own vibrations so that truly there will be a new heaven and a new earth, and there will come a flood of love that will cover the earth from pole to pole. Those coming into this earth will be high souls, and the path to liberation will be made much easier. Because, then we will have mastered our own human nature and we will be on our way to become masters of nature and ultimately masters of the entire universe.

      The prophesies of the scriptures will be fulfilled and there will be a new heaven and a new earth, and a new Jerusalem (meaning spirituality) will descend upon the earth. A new earth of heavenly vibrations will create a new heaven and a new Jerusalem; this means spirituality will descend upon the earth and the devil (meaning negativity and destructive forces) will be chained and cast into the bottomless pit; meaning that where love and spirituality reign negativity and hate cannot co-exist. It is the human who expresses one or the other. In the New Age now upon us, only our God nature will be expressed, and heaven will be on earth for all to love and enjoy. From day to day we will now see the breakups of old patterns and the coming forth of new age patterns that will endure for two-thousand years. It will be very interesting for some and a disaster for others.”

        Hey EU,
        I have a lot of respect for anyone trying to convey truth.

        I like your style and find a lot of truth in your writing and belief.

        However; as a part time writer and researcher of truth, mostly biblical, I see something here, i am going to differ with….
        You say….
        “The earth at the present time is undergoing a cleansing of excess negativity. So, disasters of one nature or another will occur unless there are forces of creativity emerging in a strong fashion to neutralize the destructive forces.”

        The earth is going thru changes, most definitely. Are they from negativity, I doubt it, especially the global warming/climate change thing. That is just patterns that the earth has experienced since the dawn of this age.
        The “cleansing” of negativity has not yet begun, because the negativity has not reached it’s pinnacle. The cleansing will not begin until the end of this age and that my friend will be a supernatural excercise done only by the Supreme Creator, and after there are no more flesh bodies left alive on the earth. The rudiments/elements/negativity will burn with fervent heat.

        The negativity is getting close to “peaking out” because of the moral decay due to many outlets of negativity, of which liberalism and worldliness are the ring leaders.
        The great shaking is definitely coming and the little shaking as with earthquakes/volcanos/violent storms are on the increase as signs and warnings of what is to come.

        God will throw in a big test, to see how many are willing to pay attention to His warnings thru His Holy Word. Much negativity and evil will prevail just before, and just after that event. That event will rock the foundations of this world as none ever has since Noah’s flood, when negativity was nearly eliminated for a brief period. We have a ways to go before all the players for that event are aligned. We are pre-warned of that event in Ezekiel 38/39.

        There is another event coming before that event and it is loaded with negativity; nuclear negativity and is centered around Iran and it’s main Nuclear producing plant. It is biblical and we will see it in this generation of the fig tree. Possibly this year.

      What banks will do someday is take a percentage of people’s savings to bail themselves they will try to tell everyone it’s fair and if they don’t economy will collapse and all your savings will be worthless anyway this is the nail in the coffin. This day will come because the banks and the gov keep making bad financial decisions and it’s not gonna stop.

    22. Chainsaw

      My prediction is to not predict, but instead prepare for not one but TWO futures. One that goes well and I have a pension and a 401k and savings. The other future we are all fully aware of that can happen and we are all better off for putting aside our time and hard earned resources. That is the only plan that covers all possibilities.

    23. RSDallas

      The only problem I have with your report is that nothing that ANYONE you have quoted has said or predicted over the last 7 years has come true. They have been calling for this since 2008.

    24. Carhartt

      I just got in to prepping around a year ago, so I am hoping the economy won’t collapse this year. There is still a lot of things I need. While all my friends are out buying PS4’s, I am saving up food, water, ammo, and getting a garden going. When the sh*t does hit the fan I hope I’ll be ready for it. – Carhartt

      Off the subject. My sister stopped by and sold my BOB.She got a big $25.00 for it. The back pack cost $200 20 years ago. Lucky I have 2 back packs. This was a large garage sale and I needed help. Lucky no firearms inside. Now building new , and hopefully better one. I went on a Outward Bound course T7. in the desert and 2 one gallon jugs of water on top. Foam rubber strapped to back to insulate ground to sleep in. One thing I had (mixed with a bunch of gimmicks) was a saw that looked like a motorcycle chain with teeth. Worked better than those thin wire things that come with the Chinese “Rambo” knives. Any help finding a replacement would be helpful. Since I quite smoking 2 years ago fire must be included. My thoughts have viewed the BOB in a somewhat different view in 20 years. I now have a bug out box in work van about 15 square feet of “stuff”. Water straw in new BOB. Any sensible opinions on new and hopefully improved BOB appreciated.

        I take the opposite approach Mike, I have a GHB (get home bag). For me my home is my castle and where I will make my stand. My bag has 3-4 days of supplies: food, water, med kit, defense, etc.

        I figure worse case it will take me three days to walk home. If I travel further my bag gets modified.

        I don’t do the BOB simply because I don’t want to be a refugee. That being said if I needed to scoot quickly I could grab two storage containers from my garage and have enough to get by for the short term.

      Watch the US; watch China. Those are the only two countries who count. Both have their orbits of influence and are the two largest economic players on the global stage (Europe is just a puppet of the US).

      2015 is the year of the New World Order: it has been planned and everyone at major organizations knows this.

      The New World Order is China/USA running the show. The US does the global security, China does the manufacturing and runs the Third World. That’s the deal.

      Where are the Chinese heavily investing? Europe and the US. So why would they launch a war against the places where they stored their cash?

      The Chinese are not irrational or money-stupid. I would be more worried about Islam, which is highly irrational, violent and unstable all over the place. That, I think, is the real threat for 2015.

      This is all deliberate..every last bit of it.

      It is a slow process that is now unfolding all perfectly to plan.

      I will quote neither scripture nor prophesy…as everyone of us has different interpretations and beliefs to ourselves and our respective worldview…

      What we must do is share our individual knowledge of expertise and experience(s)and decipher what we can from that…

      and then apply it to our own base..

      Many here do that now and kudos to all of you..

      It’s blatantly obvious that its all a shitstorm right now..and anything is possible at any moment..

      That’s why we’re all here…to educate and prepare for what’s occurring and what is to possibly come..

      For that..thank you Mac Slavo..

      prepare accordingly

      Nothing is by accident

      Potential of dangerous asteroid to hit the Earth on January 26

      “The asteroid, named 2004 BL86 by scientists, is estimated to be between 440-1,000 meters in diameter. 1.2 million kilometers is approximately three times the distance from the Earth to the Moon.

      A space object is considered potentially dangerous if it crosses the Earth’s orbit at a distance of less than 0.05 AU (approximately 19.5 distances from the Earth to the Moon), and if its diameter exceeds 100-150 meters.

      Objects of this size are large enough to cause unprecedented destruction, or generate a mammoth tsunami in case they fall into the ocean.”

      One third of the UK oil companies may go bankrupt soon. US is already shutting down hundreds of oil rigs. Several hundred US oil workers laid off so far. US 10 year note is at 1.99 this AM. You may have to pay to keep your money in the bank real soon. Big fallout over the low price of oil. I like cheap gas but it appears big business doesn’t.

      • Frank Thoughts

        I am a hardcore environmentalist and lover of protecting animal habitats, so, do I care if the oil and gas sector gets hit? No. This is a good time to still go green for jobs. When China launches its next wave of QE, the price for oil and gas will shoot up again, fast. That’s when people will be screaming for cheap, green energy and efficient public transport. Bide your time, grasshopper.

        And please, UK oil companies??? I could not give a c#ap for any UK multinational companies.

        • The Prophet

          I don’t care much about them either. Only for reference about job losses. Here and everywhere.

      Retrospective: “Dent, Faber, Celente, Maloney, Rogers – What Do They Say Is Coming In 2014?” Michael Snyder, on December 12th, 2013
      Harry Dent: “Our best long-term and intermediate cycles suggest another slowdown and stock crash accelerating between very early 2014 and early 2015″ …well that’s past for the most part
      Marc Faber: “You have to say that we are again in a massive financial bubble in bonds, in equities, in [other] asset prices that have gone up dramatically.” ..yawn
      Gerald Celente: “..And as for the international scene… the whole thing is collapsing. That’s our forecast.
      We are saying that by the second quarter of 2014, we expect the bottom to fall out… or something to divert our attention as it falls out.” ..nope, nope, nope
      Mike Maloney: “..the rest of the decade will bring us the greatest financial calamity in history” ..aka non-committal yearwise
      Jim Rogers: “Now it [a collapse] may not happen until 2016 or something, I have no idea when it’s going to happen, but when it comes, be careful.” ..skirted the year
      Lindsey Williams: “There is going to be a global currency reset.” ..hasn’t happened yet
      Russell Napier: “We are on the eve of a deflationary shock which will likely reduce equity valuations from very high to very low levels.” 2014? Wrong
      And the list goes on.

      Predictions of disaster almost always appear at certain times of the year, and they almost never happen the way they are predicted to happen.

      Which is why the average person is almost always caught by surprise at what and how things actually do happen when they happen.

    33. bla bla bla

      More bs.

      Folks, people have needs and wants.

      That means commerce will always go on.

      Food, shelter, meds and other needs.

      Stop thinking we are going into a mad max world.

      I drank this coolaid back in 2009.

      Today, I have more work than ever, I cannot keep up.
      I’m in IT.

      The big issue we face is the debt enslavement by the bankers.

      That is the number one issue today for many.

      A NATION OF DEBT SLAVES.

      That you should be worried about.

      We are all Goym to them.

      Know who the real enemy is.

      It’s the jews.

      And, Mac, darn it…do NOT delete this posting.

      I am right.

      They have all plotted our lives out, the federal reserve, the IRS, all tools to enslave us.
