If it seems to you like everything is breaking loose all at once, it isn’t just your imagination. At the beginning of January, I warned that the overall theme of this year would be “here we go”, and global events have certainly been accelerating in recent weeks.
At this moment, we are in the midst of the worst banking crisis since 2008. The collapse of Silicon Valley Bank was the second biggest bank failure in U.S. history, and the collapse of Signature Bank was the third biggest bank failure in U.S. history. Unfortunately, 186 more banks are now at risk of failing, and if large numbers of banks do collapse in the months ahead that could push us over the edge into a severe economic depression. So it is the perfect time for the elite to distract us with a major political stunt so that we will all take our eyes off of the financial disaster that is rapidly unfolding all around us…

Arresting Trump will greatly anger tens of millions of his supporters, but I think that the left is banking on that.
I think that they actually want political chaos.
Needless to say, Trump is extremely angry right now…

Speaking of criminals that are “allowed to roam the streets”, a CNN crew in San Francisco just got robbed again even though they had actually brought along a security guard to protect their vehicles…
Got robbed. Again. @jasonkCNN & I were at city hall in San Francisco to do an interview for @CNN. We had security to watch our rental car + crew car. Thieves did this in under 4 seconds. Security stopped the jerks from stealing other bags. But seriously- this is ridiculous pic.twitter.com/3zcCzckavW

When Trump described our country as “third world”, he was not exaggerating one bit.
In Portland, addicts literally smoke fentanyl right in front of children in broad daylight and the authorities do nothing…
*Today In #Portland*
Man Smokes Fentanyl in front of Children and Blows it in Elderly People's Faces.
This is exactly why you should never consider visiting this city or bringing your families Downtown.

This is our country now.
We are a complete and total mess, and our problems just get worse with each passing month.
For example, our proxy war with Russia is getting dangerously close to becoming a shooting war.
Sending a 32 million dollar intelligence drone very close to Russian territory was a very reckless thing to do, and footage of that drone colliding with a Russian jet has now been seen by countless people all over the globe…

But even though that incident didn’t go well for the U.S., don’t expect officials to stop provoking the Russians any time soon.
In fact, we continue to fly B-52 bombers that are capable of carrying nuclear weapons very close to the border of Kaliningrad…
Wow, a U.S. B-52 Strategic Bomber flying less than 10 Miles from the Russian Border of Kaliningrad for the 2nd time in 2 weeks… pic.twitter.com/yib85hH9EF

We are definitely living during a time of wars and rumors of wars.
And we are also witnessing major earthquakes in diverse places.
A magnitude 6.8 earthquake just hit Ecuador and northern Peru, and over the weekend we also saw major quakes hit Argentina, Indonesia, Russia and Alaska.
In addition, back on March 12th the sun released an absolutely gigantic coronal mass ejection…
The Sun has been spitting out some pretty powerful eruptions in the last few weeks, but one that took place a few days ago is a real doozy.
On March 12, Sun-monitoring spacecraft recorded a huge amount of material blasting away from the far side of the Sun from a coronal mass ejection. Detected as an expanding cloud, or halo, of solar debris, it raced away from the Sun at exceptionally high speeds of 2,127 kilometers (1,321 miles) per second.
We should be very glad that this eruption happened on the far side of the Sun because it was more than capable of producing another Carrington Event.
In other words, if there had been a direct hit on Earth by this coronal mass ejection, the device that you are reading this article on right now may have been completely fried.
Meanwhile, people continue to mysteriously collapse all around us. The latest victim that is making news is a meteorologist in Los Angeles…
CBS LA weatherwoman, Alissa Carlson Schwartz, was about to give the city residents her 7am report when the color suddenly drained from her face before she leaned her forearms on the desk while her co-anchors chatted between segments.
She tried to maintain a smile on her face but before she could even start her forecast her eyes rolled to the back of her head. She slowly fell forward onto her arms until her head was inches from the desk. Her legs then gave out and she fell with a jolt to the ground.
But don’t worry, this is “normal”.
In fact, everything is “normal”.
So even though the soil in East Palestine, Ohio has been found to contain “dioxin levels hundreds of times greater” than what is considered to be safe, local residents have been told that there is no reason for alarm…
Newly released data shows soil in the Ohio town of East Palestine – scene of a recent catastrophic train crash and chemical spill – contains dioxin levels hundreds of times greater than the exposure threshold above which Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) scientists in 2010 found poses cancer risks.
Of course, the immense damage that we are regularly doing to the environment is taking a tremendous health toll on all of us.
Each one of us is ingesting quite a bit of plastic each week, and all of that plastic is literally ripping up our insides…
It has been estimated that humans may now be consuming as much as a credit card’s worth of plastic every week, with negative implications that are now starting to become worryingly clear.
The international team, with scientists from the UK and Australia, studied the effects of plastic consumption on flesh-footed shearwater fledglings and show that it causes severe scarring of the birds’ stomachs, interfering with digestion, which can lead to stunted growth and, in some cases, death. Other inorganic materials that were also consumed by the birds, such as pumice, caused no such scarring, highlighting the “unique pathological properties of plastics”.
I would highly recommend looking into ways that you can repair your gut health.
Because this is a crisis that is only going to get worse in the years ahead.
I realize that I have shared a lot of really bad news in this article.
But remember, every piece of bad news is also a piece of good news.
All of human history has been building up to a grand crescendo, and we get to be here for it.
Personally, there is no other time in human history that I would have rather lived than right now.
So don’t get down about all of the bad things that are happening.
Instead, focus on what you can do to make a difference for good.
***It is finally here! Michael’s new book entitled “End Times” is now available in paperback and for the Kindle on Amazon.***
About the Author: My name is Michael and my brand new book entitled “End Times” is now available on Amazon.com. In addition to the new book I have written six other books that are available on Amazon.com including “7 Year Apocalypse”, “Lost Prophecies Of The Future Of America”, “The Beginning Of The End”, and “Living A Life That Really Matters”. (#CommissionsEarned) When you purchase any of these books you help to support the work that I am doing, and one way that you can really help is by sending copies as gifts to family and friends. Time is short, and I need help getting these warnings into the hands of as many people as possible. I have published thousands of articles on The Economic Collapse Blog, End Of The American Dream, and The Most Important News, and the articles that I publish on those sites are republished on dozens of other prominent websites all over the globe. I always freely and happily allow others to republish my articles on their own websites, but I also ask that they include this “About the Author” section with each article. The material contained in this article is for general information purposes only, and readers should consult licensed professionals before making any legal, business, financial, or health decisions. I encourage you to follow me on social media on Facebook and Twitter, and anyway that you can share these articles with others is definitely a great help. These are such troubled times, and people need hope. John 3:16 tells us about the hope that God has given us through Jesus Christ: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” If you have not already done so, I strongly urge you to invite Jesus Christ to be your Lord and Savior today.
