    Recently, the news has been all abuzz with teen activists who want to take away our guns but refuse to use clear backpacks, the Facebook privacy scandal, and how someone bit Beyonce in the face. But there are three recent events that aren’t getting much press which tell us it is entirely possible that we could be headed toward World War III at worst and toward an economic collapse at best.

    During the election, it really seemed as though Hillary Clinton as president would be a much more likely path to World War III. She even gloated of the actions she planned to take that would have led directly and immediately to war. Donald Trump as president seemed less likely to get us into a war with Russia, but it appears the tides may have turned back in that direction.

    #1) The Trade Tariffs

    We’re already at financial war with China due to punitive trade tariffs that our governments are instituting on one another. President Trump wants to rebalance global trade in America’s favor, and China isn’t going to go down without a fight. Here’s more information on the list of tariffs the US wants to charge for Chinese merchandise and the retaliatory list from China.

    The last time we were involved in a major trade war, the Great Depression happened, according to an economics expert for CNN.

    America’s last trade war exacerbated the Great Depression in the 1930s, when unemployment rose to 25%. Claiming it was protecting American jobs, Congress passed the Smoot-Hawley Act in 1930. The original bill was meant to protect farmers. But to build political support, many lawmakers asked for tariffs — or taxes — on all sorts of goods in exchange for their vote.

    Several nations, such as Canada, slapped steep tariffs — or taxes — on US goods shipped and sold abroad. For example, US exports of eggs to Canada fell to 7,900 in 1932 from 919,000 in 1929, according to Doug Irwin, a Dartmouth professor and former trade adviser to President Reagan.

    The result: US imports fell 40% in the two years after Smoot-Hawley. Banks shuttered. Unemployment shot up. Surely, there were a litany of factors at play. But economists widely agree Smoot-Hawley made the Great Depression much worse than otherwise. (source)

    And what happened at the end of the Great Depression? World War II happened, and this ended the unemployment and resulted in a spending frenzy that pumped up the economy. There’s always an increase in the GDP during wartime due to defense spending. But that is one hell of a bad way to fix the economy, don’t you think?

    #2) The PetroYuan

    As of Monday, March 27th, the US has lost petrodollar status. The petrodollar now has competition in the form of the petroyuan. What this means is that previously, the only way anyone in the world could buy oil was to use US dollars to do so. This kept the value of our currency high. But now, Russia and China are buying oil using the yuan. Others may soon follow because the United States has ticked off a majority of the planet in the past century.

    What does this mean for Americans? Inflation. Major inflation. If our dollar is worth less on the global scale, it means that anything we import is going to cost more. If you want the super-detailed economic explanation, this article and video will provide the in-depth info you want on the history and potential collapse of the petrodollar.

    Many articles have been written about the possibility that the United States will go to war to protect the petrodollar status. This one is a good read. For a quick explanation, watch this video.

    #3) Kicking Out the Russian Diplomats

    We also kicked 60 Russian Diplomats out of the United States because Russia was accused of poisoning their own spy on British soil.

    Trump took the action after the US joined the United Kingdom in accusing Russia of attempting earlier this month to murder a former Russian double agent and his daughter using a nerve agent in the town of Salisbury, England. The action comes just 11 days after the Trump administration leveled the first sanctions against Russia for its interference in the 2016 US presidential election.

    “The United States takes this action in conjunction with our NATO allies and partners around the world in response to Russia’s use of a military-grade chemical weapon on the soil of the United Kingdom, the latest in its ongoing pattern of destabilizing activities around the world,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement. (source)

    Russia, the world’s favorite scapegoat recently, denies responsibility for the poisoning.

    “It’s complete drivel, rubbish, nonsense that somebody in Russia would allow themselves to do such a thing ahead of elections and the World Cup,” Putin told supporters after winning a fourth term as president.

    “We have destroyed all chemical weapons,” he added, rejecting Britain’s claim that only Moscow could be behind the nerve agent attack on former double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia. (source)

    As for the dozens of Russian diplomats expelled from countries around the world, Russia has promised a response.

    RIA Novosti reports an unnamed foreign ministry official protested the decision by EU, NATO nations to expel envoys, and  confirmed that Russia will respond to each country expelling diplomats, warning that the “expulsions won’t go unanswered.”

    “Unfriendly” action won’t be left unanswered.

    U.K.’s allies are “blindly following” principle of Euro-Atlantic unity at the expense of common sense.

    Additionally, Russia’s ambassador to Washington, Anatoly Antonov, said that, with regard to the US response, US only understand force.

    “I mentioned in my statement in the State Department that I consider these actions counterproductive,” Antonov said.

    “I said that the United States took a very bad step by cutting what very little still remains in terms of Russian-American relations.” (source)

    Whether Russia was responsible for the poisoning of their former agent or not, this incident and the response could lead to…you guessed it…war.

    President Trump Seems to be Building a War Cabinet

    If Russia and China decide to team up, it’s a safe bet they won’t just be making passive aggressive comments about the US. We can look for a brutal and decisive attack. Whether the United States strikes first or gets hit first would be the only thing in question.

    Whatever the case, it looks like the White House is expecting war.

    There was more upheaval in Washington DC last week when President Trump replaced his National Security Advisor. Many people were shocked when Trump booted H.R. McMaster and replaced him with an avid Warhawk, John Bolton.

    “I am pleased to announce that, effective 4/9/18, @AmbJohnBolton will be my new National Security Advisor. I am very thankful for the service of General H.R. McMaster who has done an outstanding job & will always remain my friend. There will be an official contact handover on 4/19.”

    “The two have been discussing this for some time. The timeline was expedited as they both felt it was important to have the new team in place, instead of constant speculation,” a White House official said. “This was not related to any one moment or incident, rather it was the result of ongoing conversations between the two.” (source)

    John Bolton ranks up there on my List of Really Bad Choices along with Jeff Sessions and Mike Pompeo. Bolton served as a U.N. ambassador under President George W. Bush. He has openly been a supporter of aggressive military actions for decades. With former head of the CIA Mike Pompeo, these two are bound to lead us into a bloody and brutal war with…well, just about everyone.

    It is no coincidence that next in line for Donald Trump’s secretary of state position is Pompeo himself. Together, Bolton and Pompeo will be able to advise Trump on anti-North Korean and anti-Iranian platforms so hawkish there is no telling what’s to come (though we have a fairly decent idea).

    As some of you may know, John Bolton’s hawkishness has already led to some of the most despicable foreign policy agendas of our generation. (source)

    Just to give you an idea of Bolton’s thought processes, check out his 2015 op-ed for the New York Times, titled, “To Stop Iran’s Bomb, Bomb Iran” which was followed by a recent op-ed for the Wall Street Journal called, “The Legal Case For Striking North Korea First.” Learn more about the world according to John Bolton in this article, littered with horrifying quotes right from the horse’s mouth.

    So, while it seemed as though we were moving forward when Kim Jong Un agreed to talks with President Trump about giving up his nukes, we’ve just moved 10 steps back with this new “war cabinet.” And that’s exactly what Pat Buchanan, advisor to three presidents and syndicated columnist has called it.

    President Donald Trump seems to be creating a war cabinet.

    Trump himself has pledged to walk away from the Iran nuclear deal — “the worst deal ever” — and reimpose sanctions in May.

    His new national security adviser John Bolton, who wrote an op-ed titled “To Stop Iran’s Bomb, Bomb Iran,” has called for preemptive strikes and “regime change.”

    Secretary of State-designate Mike Pompeo calls Iran “a thuggish police state,” a “despotic theocracy,” and “the vanguard of a pernicious empire that is expanding its power and influence across the Middle East.”

    Trump’s favorite Arab ruler, 32-year-old Saudi Prince Mohammed bin Salman, calls Iran’s Ayatollah Khamenei “the Hitler of the Middle East.”

    Bibi Netanyahu is monomaniacal on Iran, calling the nuclear deal a threat to Israel’s survival and Iran “the greatest threat to our world.”

    U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley echoes them all. (source)

    Do you want a war? Because this is how you get a war.

    Are you nervous yet?

    Are we on the cusp of World War III? This has been a question I’ve asked numerous times recently for numerous reasons, but it sure seems like all the game pieces are being moved into place on the chessboard.

    • We have a cabinet staffed with warmongers.
    • We have a trade war with China.
    • We ticked off Russia more than once.
    • We’ve lost petrodollar status.

    In the past, America has “resolved” its economic problems by going to war. Will this time be any different?

      1. We have more of a chance of getting killed by a democrat than WWIII

        • Yes. Get too close to Hillary and pass out from shit fumes.
          I’m thinking they are planning to kill more children in public schools soon.

        • Death to warmongering Neocons like Joh Bolton. Bunch of psycho zionistsss parasites looking to drain America of its assets through perpetual endless wars. Need to cut the US military spending budget by 50% and close 50% of all US based foreign Military bases. There is no reason to be in Syria, Yemen, Africa, Afghanistan, Iraq, S Korea or Japan. Close ALL of these US Military bases down and bring the troops home. The West, Israhell amd London’s war mongering parasites need to shut down. The US is again on the wrong side of History.

        • You are so right my friend and what makes this article so stupid is the fact that the Demonuts/Far left are the ones that want a war to push the Global Elites one world policy crap through. The problem is people do not do the research these days that they should instead of taking everything at face value and believing the nonsense. I say do the research folks and find out for yourselves http://www.infowars.com , drudgereport.com

      2. And now there’s talk of using the military to build the wall. It won’t be Mexico paying for it, but st least it starts with an M.

      3. The saying is “generals are always fighting the last war”. If the world leaders think that they can start a conventional shooting war to enrich their economies through war production, they have sadly miscalculated the chance of escalation to nuclear war by any country that does not feel they have the boots to hold their own. Countries that don’t have the technology, air power, sea power, … include Pakistan, India, N.Korean, Iran, … all have nuclear arms to use when backed into a corner. Yes world war III is a high possibility.

      4. I’d put a 20% tariff on everything imported from any country that doesn’t have EPA and OSHA laws like we do. On the other hand,I don’t care for Trump’s 40 Billion dollar wall, Get the Marines back from the sandbox and put them in pillboxes 600 meters apart. Tell them to shoot anything coming North on two legs, unless it also has wings,

        • Im pretty sure those folks would rather be there than overseas,,,most anyway

      5. How many times have we heard this? “War is on the horizon!”. I am not denying there could be a war. The threat is real, has been real for a long time now. Don’t want one. We don’t need one. Can’t help but feel everything is mind games anymore. Are they just trying to wear us all down day after day with threats of destruction and the end of our freedoms? We all should be prepped for anything – I get that. Is this all part of the 7 years of trials and tribulations predicted in the Bible? Sure feels that way. Despite all the craziness displayed by world “leaders” (psychopaths), there are some really positive things happening and being pursued by real, down-to-earth decent humans who want to improve the current situation of our planet, without political influence. Go people! Keep pushing! Doom and gloom be damned! Keep on keepin’ on!

      6. Diverting some of that military money for the wall is a good idea. That would be a real
        F-U to the Democrats that were always blocking funding for the wall. Call it national
        security and homeland defense and be done with it. Seriously though, they need to build
        up spare parts for the fighter planes and boost the hypersonic capabilities before we
        become radioactive charcoal. Eight years of O’Negro depleted our readiness.

      7. #2 maybe

      8. If nobody will attack us we will have to attack ourselves to keep the money pump primed.

      9. The people who are making the decisions have well-stocked, luxurious bunkers waiting for them if war breaks out. It’s a pity that the Russian and American people can’t blow the bunkers up and keep the peace. It won’t keep the war from happening but it would help.

        War won’t break out when it is expected but rather when it is not. It’ll be a surprise to everyone.

      10. Buy a machete now so you can fight with the street kids who are looking for the choice food scraps!

      11. Ah what the heck – none of us are going to live forever. I for one have gotten pretty sick of the way things are right now. The number one problem I have is the lies. Don’t know about all of you, but I really am finding it impossible to believe much of anything coming from any news source – MSM or otherwise. Really don’t care if it is far right, left, prepper, libtard or some warm fuzzy b.s. coming out of some religious venue. All of them are operating from their own agendas and none of them just dole out what they know as it is.

        • Do you think that fat, white guy with the Mexican gardener,maid, pool boy, and cook would listen if you told him he was part of the problem? Do you think that fatherless black drug dealer on the corner would listen if you told him he was part of the problem? Do you think that industrialist using cheap illegal labor would listen if you told him he was part of the problem? Do you think that the 100 million people that suck on the government tit would listen if you told them they were part of the problem? NO, they do not want to hear the truth.

      12. This video answers a lot of questions…it reveals a brilliant plan that has the majority of us unwittingly on the same team with the Deep State, fighting FOR the NWO while believing ourselves to be fighting against it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_NFFY_CAYxc

      13. Working on my income taxes. If they take my guns, I’ll be okay. I”m angry enough to spit bullets! I have a limited space for gardening. I believe that instead of growing vegetables, I will grow mushrooms and herbs, focusing on the ones that promote health.

        I’ve done a lot of reading on health issues. One thing that I notice is that people do is to accept the deterioration of memory and the decline of physical and mental health as an inevitable part of growing older. While it is true that some of it is, you can’t just accept the degree of it based on what you see in others. Some of it is avoidable and, I believe, it is reversible. Over the course of a lifetime, certain other things happen that can be avoided or even reversed. These things have an impact. The buildup of heavy metals in our bodies. The decline of certain species in our intestines. Metabolic syndrome. It isn’t as hopeless as it seems!

        • I’m about 40 years ahead of you on the nutritional research Brian, keep at it we need more people with that kind of knowledge, might also want to look into wild edibles too, even it the cities. Have a good one.

        • Brian: If you are dumb enough to give them your guns and or do nothing to protest and or attempt to stop it well, just swallow a 10mm and a call it a damn day boy…

      14. The biggest contributor of the “Great Depression ” by some economist was the “FED”. Their take on the tariffs was that it did not help the course of recovery. The “Great Depression” was world wide, not just in the United States. It is also believed that President Roosevelt did not do enough with his job programs to accelerate recovery. The USA should always be in a position to provide everything it needs without dependence on other nations. By being self dependent also makes millions of jobs. Each country should fend for itself independently with only limited imports and exports. China has only been able to become what it is today by its monopoly of exported goods world wide. Why would we line someone else’s pockets instead of our own? As for WWIII, it will be started by power hungry war mongers. Who could that be?

      15. In spite of all the things happening in the world, I’m doing well.

        We had a lightening and thunder storm last night and the night before. It was hot and stormy.

        I wish I could report on my affairs but I have nothing to report.


      16. War happens when we reach a point where geopolitical power balances can’t be resolved in other ways. We are now there.

        We need a big conflict to establish a new world order for the next 100 years. Too many new technologies are being held back by the current stacis.the ideal war would be to get together with
        Russia and China and go after radical Islam. That would be the best war.

        • FT War also happens when a war-monger president is voted in. Bolton as SoS doesn’t help the situation either.

      17. Had you grown up in the Cold War as I did, you would have probably believed that World War III would have occurred before 2000. It is now 2018 so I feel we are way ahead of the game.

      18. We need a force multiplier war. This means teaming up with Russia and China (the only other powers capable of defending civilisation).

        By linking up, we can take on the 57 countries pushing radical Islam. This would be a war like WWII. But this time the powers would be united and could use the same high intensity combat we used during The Surge to grind the terrorists down. Just imagine if China was on board. wow!

      19. It will be absolutely shocking to see Russia and/or China do anything. So far they refuse to fight back. They refuse to retaliate so far, so what makes any of you think they will fight back at al now? They just bend over for each and every provocation from the chosen ones. It is absolutely pathetic watching them take it up the bum day after day and refuse to fight. Unbelievable. Putin won’t do FA. His track record shows this pattern for the last decade. I really do not think there will be anything going down because these idiots will just allow yanky to keep attacking them over and over and over and still refuse to do anything. Too chicken to actually take out the homeland we will just sit here and watch China and Russia and Iran get taken over by these yankys and stupid Puttin aint gonna do NOTHING. Putin should have demolished usa a decade ago. He won’t even put concrete sanctions on yanky, letalone actually give them a taste a their own medicine. There lucky I aint in charge there.

      20. Concerned Citizen- I have no intention of surrendering anything! The internet is not the place to talk about what you intend to do about something that has not come up. Surprise them!

      21. The Democrats want a war to push through the Globalist agenda. I agree with taking some of the cash to build the wall because if we don’t we will be sorry. The military has been depleted severely the last 8 years with Obamanation in office and Trump is having to over come many deep state inspired crap. We need to pray for America and Our President because things are not what they seem.
