Fourth Turning Accelerating: “No Escaping the Dire, Deadly and Dangerous Times Directly Ahead”

Do you LOVE America?


    Editor’s Note: Do you see the signs? James Quinn of The Burning Platform does and he provides a highly detailed and insightful analysis in the article below. It’s an eye opening, yet sobering read, especially for those who hold on to the notion that our economy is recovering, the world remains stable, and that those in the upper echelons of power put our interests first. This, of course, is a ridiculous idea given the current global state of affairs, but it’s one that has led to the demise of hundreds of societies and millions of people throughout the course of human history. Today we stand on the very precipice of another Fourth Turning – a generational cyclical trend that has been proven accurate time and again. Though we can’t possibility predict how all this will end, if cyclical history is a guide, the world is preparing to enter a period of widespread instability, uprising, famine, and war.

    “In retrospect, the spark might seem as ominous as a financial crash, as ordinary as a national election, or as trivial as a Tea Party. The catalyst will unfold according to a basic Crisis dynamic that underlies all of these scenarios: An initial spark will trigger a chain reaction of unyielding responses and further emergencies. The core elements of these scenarios (debt, civic decay, global disorder) will matter more than the details, which the catalyst will juxtapose and connect in some unknowable way. If foreign societies are also entering a Fourth Turning, this could accelerate the chain reaction. At home and abroad, these events will reflect the tearing of the civic fabric at points of extreme vulnerability –problem areas where America will have neglected, denied, or delayed needed action.” – 

    The Fourth Turning – Strauss & Howe – 1997

    This past week saw an event revealing the cluelessness and ignorance of the linear thinking establishment. They are oblivious to the cyclicality of history and unaware of their precarious situation, as the mood of the country and the world portends their demise. Eric Cantor, the ultimate establishment neo-con Republican House Majority Leader, was crushed in a primary by a completely unknown economics professor, outspent by Cantor $4.9 million to $123,000. Cantor spent more at steakhouses than David Brat spent on his entire campaign. Cantor, a lackey for Blackstone, Goldman Sachs, Israel, and dozens of other mega-corporations, was the first House Majority leader defeated in a primary since the position was created in the 1890s. He won his last primary by 60%.

    This was as big a shock to the Republican establishment as it was to the Democratic establishment, the mainstream corporate media establishment, and the Tea Party establishment that didn’t provide David Brat one red cent of their vast horde of contributions. They are now scrambling to generate a storyline explaining this unexplainable development as if it was entirely predictable. These wealthy, myopic, propaganda peddling, purveyors of the status quo just felt the foundation of their world shudder beneath them. Like a volcano, with pressure building within, the world as we know it is about to blow. Who gets devastated by the massive explosion and flow of molten lava is yet to be determined, but there is nothing the establishment can do to stop the eruption. This entire Deep State hierarchy has been developed over decades, as they have flawlessly implemented Edward Bernays teachings from the Propaganda playbook.

    “The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. …We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society. …In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons…who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind.” – Edward Bernays – Propaganda – 1928

    The linear thinkers, who constitute the invisible government and unelected true ruling power, are flabbergasted their game plan, which has worked for the last seven decades, is failing to have the usual sway over the normally compliant masses. Lies, misinformation, deception, propaganda, easy debt, cheap oil, endless commercial expansion, relentless marketing, never ending war, politicians selected by bankers and mega-corporations, tax code created to benefit the .01%, and laws written by the lobbyists for the oligarchs designed to control the plebs and enrich the modern aristocracy, made the world go round until 2008. Linear thinkers in government, business, banking and media have been perpetuating the falsehood of a return to normalcy, recovery, and linear progress. They are willfully ignorant of history because acknowledging its cyclicality would be admitting how precarious their positions of power, wealth, and control truly are.

    History does not proceed in a straight line of forward advancement. It has a seasonal nature geared to the 80 year life cycle of human beings. The most basic lesson of history is we never seem to learn the lessons of history. A period of Crisis arrives like Winter, approximately 60 years after the resolution of the prior Crisis, with a climax occurring approximately 80 years after the prior Crisis climax. The generational dynamics based upon human life cycles have lined up once again into Crisis mode. Anyone who hasn’t sensed the mood change in the country since 2008, hasn’t been paying attention. The linear thinking establishment refuses to accept the inevitability of their existing paradigm collapsing in a chaotic whirlwind of violence, death on a grand scale and decisive war. The existing social order is always swept away during a Fourth Turning.

    Saeculum (climax year) Crisis (Full Era) Time from one Crisis climax to next Crisis climax
    Revolutionary (1781) American Revolution(1773–1794)
    Civil War (1863) Civil War(1860–1865) 82 years
    Great Power (1944) Great Depressionand World War II(1929-1946) 81 years
    Millennial (2025?) Global Financial Crisis(2008–2029?) 81 years?

    The Global Financial Crisis, which began in September 2008, marked the beginning of a likely two decade long episode of fierce winter-like blizzard conditions that will get progressively worse as this Fourth Turning churns toward its bloody climax. The evil wealthy men and their paid off pawns in politics and the media who constitute the invisible government, governing behind the scenes, molding minds, forming tastes and suggesting ideas to the gullible masses, will not relinquish their wealth and power without a fight. They have been utilizing all emergency monetary and fiscal levers, while conducting a data disinformation campaign and utilizing their control of the dying legacy media to keep the masses distracted, entertained and confused.

    The establishment has convinced a vast swath of the public to actually believe 0% interest rates for the last 5 years, adding $1 trillion per year to the already Himalayan national debt, allowing the Federal Reserve buy $3 trillion of toxic debt from their Wall Street banking cabal owners, while creating a high rate of inflation in energy, food, healthcare and tuition costs, and negative growth in real wages, is somehow beneficial to them and reflects a return to normalcy. The current state of our economic, financial, political and judicial systems, along with the fraying social fabric of society reflects EXTREME dysfunction and in no way exhibits anything resembling a normal state of affairs. The government apparatchiks, corporate media talking heads, Wall Street captured economists, and lackeys for billionaire oligarchs are highly paid liars using every Bernaysian trick to manipulate the beliefs, desires, and prejudices of the willfully ignorant masses. They capitalize on the cognitive dissonance and normalcy bias being practiced by the majority of people in the country. Like a dog chasing its tail, they have the public up in arms about meaningless social issues and ignoring the looting of the country by sociopathic bankers.

    Those in power need to sell their storyline of advancement, despite the overwhelming evidence of a societal implosion and economic regression for the 99.99%. They need to distract the masses with inconsequential emotional issues like gay marriage, mass murderers, climate change, party politics, racism, and phantom terror threats, so the masses don’t focus on how badly they are being screwed by the One Party invisible government. For those who have been too dumbed down by our government public education system to even comprehend anything beyond a third grade level, we have The Kardashians, Bridezilla, Duck Dynasty, I Didn’t Know I Was Pregnant, iGadgets, Twitter, Facebook, professional sports, Hollywood blockbusters, and toxic fast food paid for with your EBT card. Our world is besieged by triviality, plagued by idiocy, inundated with propaganda, and consumed with consumption.

    In a country of 318 million people, the few believe they must mold the minds of the masses in order for society to function smoothly. Of course this is a huge lie. They need to mold those minds in order to retain their power, wealth, control. They are focused on the daily dose of lies, mistruths, disinformation, and distractions required to keep the masses anesthetized. They have ignored the lessons of history and the big picture driving the Crisis events which will change the world over the next fifteen years. Fourth Turnings don’t calm down, fizzle out, or revert to what happened in the prior twenty years, just as the unyielding harsh Winter cannot revert to the glorious days of Fall or the sweltering days of Summer. There is no escaping the dire, deadly and dangerous times directly ahead of us.

    “Reflect on what happens when a terrible winter blizzard strikes. You hear the weather warning but probably fail to act on it. The sky darkens. Then the storm hits with full fury, and the air is a howling whiteness. One by one, your links to the machine age break down. Electricity flickers out, cutting off the TV. Batteries fade, cutting off the radio. Phones go dead. Roads become impossible, and cars get stuck. Food supplies dwindle. Day to day vestiges of modern civilization – bank machines, mutual funds, mass retailers, computers, satellites, airplanes, governments – all recede into irrelevance. Picture yourself and your loved ones in the midst of a howling blizzard that lasts several years. Think about what you would need, who could help you, and why your fate might matter to anybody other than yourself. That is how to plan for a saecular winter. Don’t think you can escape the Fourth Turning. History warns that a Crisis will reshape the basic social and economic environment that you now take for granted.” – Strauss & Howe – The Fourth Turning

    Strauss and Howe wrote their epic historical treatise in 1997 and their predictions, based upon centuries of generational analysis, have been uncannily accurate. The predictions are not event based, but based upon generational mood and core elements of Crisis, which were predictable over a decade before the 2008 start to this Crisis. The core elements of Debt, Civic Decay, and Global Disorder were evident to anyone with a functioning critical thinking brain, not in the employ of the establishment. These core elements are front and center today, as the Fourth Turning gains momentum like a gathering winter storm. The captured mainstream media does their utmost to obscure, downplay, and ignore these issues, but alternative truth telling websites like Zero HedgeMike Krieger’s Liberty BlitzkriegMike ShedlockJohn Rubino’s Dollar CollapseJim KunstlerJohn HussmanJesse’s Cafe Americain,Charles Hugh SmithKarl Denninger, and number of other freedom minded websites keep the spark of truth alive for those seeking it. A perusal of headlines from these sites over the last week or so provides the true nature of this worsening Fourth Turning Crisis:

    Do these headlines indicate a lessening or deepening of the ongoing Crisis? You won’t see these truthful headlines in the mainstream captured media. You will see feel good headlines touting non-existent economic recoveries, decreasing unemployment rates with record levels of non-working Americans, and storylines of government, corporate and consumer austerity as debt levels reach all-time highs. You will see stories scorning Edward Snowden as a traitor for exposing the highest levels of the United States government as criminals for shredding the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. You will see articles hyping one hundred years of shale oil and gas as energy prices approach record highs and the point of peak cheap oil has been passed. You will see publications owned by billionaires peddling hogwash about fantastic Wall Street profits entirely dependent upon mark to fantasy accounting and accounting journal entries relieving loan loss reserves as loan losses rise. You will see hyperbolic fear mongering dreck about foiled terrorist plots concocted by the FBI and DHS. You will see stories about the evil Russians and evil Chinese as our CIA promotes the overthrow of democratically elected officials in countries around the globe. You will see stories about the dangers of foreign countries conducting cyber-warfare against the U.S. as our government intercepts every electronic communication of our allies and citizens. It’s as if we are lost in a blizzard of lies.

    Debt, Civic Decay, Global Disorder

    Propaganda and the molding of minds cannot change the course of history. Those in power can ignore the facts, but they can’t change the facts. During the “austere” period from 2009 through until today, total credit market debt in the U.S. has expanded from $53.4 trillion to $59.4 trillion. It now stands at 350% of GDP, even after the government added $500 billion out of thin air to GDP to further their deception of recovery. The U.S. national debt is at a record $17.5 trillion and goes up by $2.0 billion per day. This doesn’t include the $200 trillion of unfunded liabilities politicians have committed taxpayers to pay over the next few decades. Corporate debt is at record highs as CEO’s borrow to buy back their stock at record highs in order to boost EPS and drive their compensation higher.

    US total debt 2014

    Consumer debt has surged to new highs reaching $3.2 trillion, as government pushed subprime student loan debt and government peddled subprime auto loan lure more math challenged dupes into the banker web of debt. Even credit card debt surged in May as people can no longer make monthly payments for energy, food, rent, and healthcare. Retailers continue to report horrific profits as disposable income has been disposed of by the Federal Reserve’s QE and ZIRP “solutions”. The immense levels of debt plague the entire world as total global debt now surpasses $230 trillion, 313% of world GDP. The 40% surge in global debt since the 2008 debt created collapse is unprecedented in its scope and lunacy. Trying to resolve a debt problem created by criminal Wall Street bankers by allowing Wall Street controlled central bankers, politicians, and government bureaucrats to issue more debt, reduce interest rates to zero, and enrich the oligarchs, will end in catastrophe. The house of cards is teetering as trust dissipates, rehypothecated assets evaporate, the suppression of price discovery fails and the rigged stock market crashes for the third time in fourteen years.

    The 2008 global financial crash was the catalyst for this Fourth Turning and the next leg down will unleash the fury of the masses as their remaining wealth, along with their hopes and dreams are obliterated. The civic decay is unmistakably visible, like a fissure in the road after an earthquake, and has left the masses angry, confused, dependent, ignorant, distracted, and suspicious. The extreme and growing wealth inequality driven by Federal Reserve policies, corporate lobbyist written government regulations and tax laws, and bankers controlling the political, economic, financial, and media levers has reached levels previously associated with collapse and revolution. The greed, hubris and arrogance of the .01% will lead to their downfall.

    A country with 102 million of its 247 million working age population not working is a powder-keg and the politicians are acting like slow witted monkeys lighting matches. With 20% of the 145 million jobs part-time, more than half low paying service industry jobs, real wages lower than they were in 1998, and a median salary of $25,000, it’s understandable why 20% of the population relies on food stamps to survive. The discontent is growing. We got a preview of how the establishment will deal with disgruntlement during the 2011 Occupy Wall Street protests. Liberal Democrat mayors aligned with Fox News neo-cons, Wall Street bankers, and police state thugs to eradicate, beat, tear gas, and pepper spray young people exercising their right to free speech protesting the wolves of Wall Street, who had pulled of the largest heist in human history with absolutely no consequences for their criminality. Both OWS and the Tea Party were co-opted by the establishment in short order and have been used by the One Party of oligarchs as a means to divide and conquer, by keeping the masses blaming liberal or conservative phantoms for the state of disunion.

    The seemingly never ending revelations from the hero of this Fourth Turning – Edward Snowden – of government surveillance regarding every electronic communication of every American by the NSA is proof of a complete disregard for Constitutionally guaranteed protections by the powers that be. The current administration in conjunction with the hacks from the two headed party ignore, flaunt and show disdain for the Bill of Rights and legal precedent as they run roughshod over the citizens. The transformation of our republic into an authoritarian surveillance police state is almost complete.

    The militarization of local police forces by the DHS, military training exercises in major cities, and plans being drawn up by the authorities to confront civil unrest all point towards the coming breakdown of civil society. The complete lockdown of Boston to apprehend two teenage cooking utensil terrorists was a dry run and probably gave the oligarchs confidence in their plan, as Bostonians cowered in their homes as heavily armed police thugs pissed on the Fourth Amendment by conducting door to door searches. If you listen closely, you can hear the fabric of our civilization being torn asunder.

    The past few weeks have seen global disorder reach new heights, as Iraq has become Mission Un-Accomplished, the Ukraine explodes into civil war as Russia cuts off their natural gas, violent protests continue to rock Brazil, Egypt, Spain, Greece, France, Turkey and a myriad of other hotspots around the world. The very same forces Obama, McCain and the military industrial complex have been arming in Syria to fight a dictator who was our ally, are now ransacking Iraq, murdering the people we put into power when we deposed another dictator who had been our ally when he was fighting our sworn enemy – Iran. It seems Iran is now helping Iraq fight these jihadists, as they slowly but surely gain control over Iraq. The EU has papered over their national insolvency problems with more debt, while imposing austerity measures on the peasants. See French Revolution for the ultimate resolution of this banker-centric solution. The endemic fraud in China, along with an imploding real estate market, and corruption on an epic scale are creating a perfect storm which will derail the China miracle meme.

    Meanwhile, the new dictator in Egypt who overthrew the democratically elected government, after our former dictator ally was deposed when Obama refused to support him, has clamped down on the citizens with his military force. The Ukraine is being torn apart after the CIA and their counterparts in the EU undermined the democratically elected government and started a civil war to undermine Russian influence in that country. To an impartial observer, you might think the American Empire is purposely sowing seeds of discontent, war, and disorder around the globe. Never ending war benefits the military industrial complex, as tremendous profits are generated from the sale of arms to all parties involved. Iraq and Syria are good for the bottom line of the U.S. Defense Industry. War and global disorder also benefit the worldwide banking cabal, as the only way to fund these misadventures is through debt. As we all know, debt is what makes this world go round – until it doesn’t.

    There has been a virtual mainstream media blackout regarding the Ukraine as government forces bomb and murder civilians. The billionaires running America need to support the billionaire president of the Ukraine because he is one of them. Truth has no place in modern governmental affairs. The mainstream media ignores the fact the United States has armed Sunni terrorists in Syria who are now on the verge of overrunning Baghdad, as they slaughter Iraqi Shiites by the thousands. They ignore the fact that Iraq was a modern, stable, non-religious, oil producing nation under Hussein, with no Al Qaeda or sectarian violence. The United States invaded a sovereign country under false pretenses, wasted over $1 trillion of precious national wealth, killed over 100,000 Iraqis, sustained over 37,000 physical casualties, untold numbers of mental casualties, and now Iraq is dissolving into a quagmire of religious violence threatening oil supplies and driving prices higher. After 13 years and 21,000 casualties in Afghanistan, the Taliban are stronger than ever as we declare victory and slink away. Libya has been another feather in the cap of American foreign policy as we deposed another former ally dictator and have left the country in disarray and civil war. Just because the American corporate media doesn’t report these facts, doesn’t make them not so.

    It should be clear to anyone willing to open their eyes and not be influenced by the establishment propaganda that this Fourth Turning is entering a new ominous phase, as the 2008 Global Financial Crisis catalyst has ignited a volcanic eruption which has put tremendous strain on the areas of extreme vulnerability – debt, civic decay, global disorder. The few aware Americans who frequent truth telling websites are frustrated and impatient, waiting for the tsunami of change to sweep over the world. History operates at its own cyclical pace. An accelerated Fourth Turning would likely not be a positive development. The Civil War Crisis was accelerated, resulting in 700,000 deaths in four years. With the worldwide proliferation of nuclear missiles, this Fourth Turning could be over with the push of a button. I don’t think anyone is rooting for that outcome.

    You can easily be distracted by the day to day machinations of evil men, relentless propaganda, meaningless distractions, and various forms of bread and circuses. But history is unforgiving. The details and events will be different, but the path of this Crisis will follow past Crisis periods. The worldwide debt bubble will burst. The resulting loss of wealth, jobs, entitlements and trust will ignite mass civil disorder as years of civic decay lead to a swift societal collapse. With China also entering a Fourth Turning, a global debt implosion, resource wars breaking out, religious extremism, and nationalistic drums beating, the likelihood of global war is high.

    For some perspective, six years into the last Fourth Turning in 1935, GDP had risen by 30% from its 1933 low and FDR’s New Deal was supposedly lifting the country from its depths. In reality, the population was experiencing a worsening depression and a few years later a world war killed 65 million people. After six years the Civil War Crisis was resolved with 5% of the nation’s male population killed, a president assassinated, and the South left in ruins. This Fourth Turning will proceed along its destined path at its own pace. The molten ingredients of debt, civic decay and global disorder are conjoining in an explosive concoction leading to a conflagration which will flow across the globe on a scale not seen since the Second World War. There is no escaping the trials and tribulations awaiting us. The outcome is uncertain. It could end in glory or destruction. Individual sacrifice, shared burdens, courageous stands and inspired leadership will be required to survive the perilous trials ahead.

    I see the bad moon arising

    I see trouble on the way

    I see earthquakes and lightnin’

    I see bad times today

    Creedence Clearwater Revival

    “Imagine some national (and probably global) volcanic eruption, initially flowing along channels of distress that were created during the Unraveling era and further widened by the catalyst. Trying to foresee where the eruption will go once it bursts free of the channels is like trying to predict the exact fault line of an earthquake. All you know in advance is something about the molten ingredients of the climax, which could include the following:

    • Economic distress, with public debt in default, entitlement trust funds in bankruptcy, mounting poverty and unemployment, trade wars, collapsing financial markets, and hyperinflation (or deflation)
    • Social distress, with violence fueled by class, race, nativism, or religion and abetted by armed gangs, underground militias, and mercenaries hired by walled communities
    • Political distress, with institutional collapse, open tax revolts, one-party hegemony, major constitutional change, secessionism, authoritarianism, and altered national borders
    • Military distress, with war against terrorists or foreign regimes equipped with weapons of mass destruction” –  The Fourth Turning – Strauss & Howe – 1997

            I don’t know what is the best answer what to do on a macro level but individually, the basic stuff ie water, shelter, means of producing food, etc is all I can plan for. If discovered, I hope I can take a few with me for I know I won’t be around till the end. So those few won’t hurt anyone else.

              • So the Tea Party didn’t help this guy financially run against Cantor? That sounds like Dem and Republican big shots picking a choosing winners. Just a bunch of politicians under a different name.

              No need to get all choked up Son,
              you’re among friends here.

            • Too many people. One of the more intelligent comments I’ve read. Your a man of few words. Or is this OPSEC. Trekker Out.

              • One of the better articles we have seen here. Kinda puts it all in perspective. PRAY,PLAN, PREP, FORM TEAMS…… and remeber… Solant Green is people…..

          • There once was a Jew named Cantor,
            Who was full of Zionist banter.
            He pushed with glee,
            For full amnesty
            But the Tea Party silenced the ranter.

          • ESPECIALLY WIKIPEDIA, because many people actually believe it contains accurate information.

            • @sixpack

              Years back, when Wikipedia first came out, I got an account. Just for fun, I edited the entry for my hometown, claiming that the mayor could call for an emergency meeting of the city council by getting on top of city hall and blowing on the “horn of cheese”.

              No lie, that entry stayed up there unchallenged for four weeks 🙂

              • Just imagine what the disinfo-masters do to wikipedia…then the govt trolls and other ideologues.

                Why not just have everyone write their versions, and throw them all into a hat. The luck of the draw is better than peer editing.

                • Kosher thought cops patrol Wikipedia to ensure that only the “mainstream” (Zionist) opinion holds sway.

        • One of the worst cycles that everyone should be looking at is disease. Humans are way overdue for a super bug to get loose. Nature follows cycles better than anything. Humans have degraded their immune systems with chemicals, GMO foods, allowing dr. quaack’s dope into their bodies, poor eating with processed crap, and just not taken care of their bodies. This invites a new powerful virus and/or bacteria in to hit humans. Happens all the time in the animal and plant kingdom.

          People as a species have fallen down ugly. They have destroyed their common sense, their spirituality, their intelligence, and basically lowered themsleves into the realm of acting and thinking more and more like an animal. Every single time when people begins to behave like an ape, terrible times follow. This is a cycle that has played out again and again throughout history. Just look at how so many people now worship these idiots that go around flipping off God. Look at how many people worship those that shovel political correctness down everyone’s throat.

          So many people now have taken a totally selfish approach to life. Not just me, myself and I, but to the point where so many don’t even have a conscience. They take wwhtever they want no matter how much destruction it does to the innocent. These are the same people that expect now and after SHTF to share whatever you have stored up. These are the same people that have come to expect whatever they want ON DEMAND. The same people that refuse to store up anything no matter how dire the situation looks.

          I still have a difficult time understanding that just 1% or so of people prepare by storing up for emergencies for their families. This is a sure sign of people and stupidity merging into a glob of waste.

          One of the worst aspects of this cycle of bad times coming is that people have totally abandoned God or just the basic concept of doing on to other how you would have them do on to you.

          Without being a doom and gloom person one just has to look at the total decay of society from within. Forget the economy, geopolitics, the geophysical, or anything else that has to do with countries and continents. look at you basic person and how they have likely fallen into a much more animalisitc pattern of life. AGAIN, Every single time people have stopped acting, thinking, and behaving like advanced human beings horrible events have followed. This is one cycle that should scare people the most and something that tells each one of us that we all need to kick the prepping into another higher gear. IT’S COMING like a supercell thunderstorm with nothing to stop it. 🙁

          • We know how this ends.

            Galatians 6:7

            Be not deceived, God is not mocked.

            • Written by the Jewish apostle Paul.

              • Grafique…..”You said: Written by the Jewish apostle Paul.” I bet soon you and your tribe will claim some Jewish apostle really love the non jews and the ZOG’s are not responsible for the financial devastation your tribe brought on to the man kind.

              • As predictable, St. Paul’s opinion is diametrically opposite Grafique’s lie-of-the-day:

                For you are all the children of God by faith, in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have been baptized in Christ, have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek: there is neither bond nor free: there is neither male nor female. For you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you be Christ’s, then are you the seed of Abraham, heirs according to the promise.

                Galatians 3:26-29

                • Hey JQP, why did you highlight only “neither Jew nor Greek”? Why didn’t you highlight “neither male nor female”? There are obviously no males or females in the world today, right?

                  Obviously, this passage is not talking about Jews or Greeks, males or females in the flesh, but it means spiritually – in Christ – there are neither Jews or Greeks, males or females. Otherwise, what are all these men and women doing walking around? And why is there a nation full of Greeks? According to you, there should be no Greeks, males or females in the world today. So if we see Greeks in the world, then we also see Jews in the world.

                  I wonder how you explain away the last verse of the book of Amos. In that verse, God states that he will return the children of Israel to their homeland and they will never be made to leave again. Do you think that God has forgotten his promise? Or abandoned it? Or somehow man has thwarted God’s will? Apparently you have a very low opinion of God’s ability to do what he said he would do.

                  I don’t have a low opinion of God. I’m confident that God can and will do everything that he promised he would do.

                  • The sad thing, Grafique, is that you aren’t playing the fool.

                    You said the Apostle Paul was a Jew, but even grammar school children know that “Saul” was the “Jew” and that after his conversion the Apostle Paul, in his own words said that “There is neither Jew nor Greek…. in Christ.”

                    St. Paul the Apostle contradicted you—deal with it.

                    As for Amos, you must be severely dyslexic (and of ill will).

                    In the first 8 chapters of the Book of Amos, Amos chastises the Israelites for their obstinacy in sin, their oppression of the poor, their idolatry, their sinful pride, their love of luxury, their avarice, their injustices, their ingratitude, and the evils that will befall them because of the judgment of God against them. Finally, in the last chapter Amos warns of the certain desolation of Israel and promises the conversion of the GENTILES to the church; which shall flourish forever.

                    You might also read Jeremias 31:31-32, the promise of the New Covenant, the New Israel (the Church):

                    Behold the days shall come, saith the Lord, and I will make a NEW covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Juda: Not according to the covenant which I made with their fathers, in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt: the covenant which they made VOID, and I had dominion over them, saith the Lord.

            • i mock your non existent deity all the time-and i am over 53 years old-i still have at least 30 more years to mock morons like you as well!

              • knowitall< I hope you live another 50 years, and enjoy it while you can. Trekker Out. Jesus Is Lord!

              • That’s okay. Jesus was mocked on this earth from the time he was born till the time he died. All through history, Jesus Christ has been mocked. You aren’t the first to mock him.

                The good part is that his death paid for your sins and the sins of everyone else who mocked him.

              • @knowitall,
                So do you have a better plan? I not only mock YOUR non existent deity, I piss on them too. I think it is absolutely hilarious that people still want to cling to the delusion that people are basicly good, and perfectable, and a utopian society is possible. The hubris that some how we who are living “in day and age”; what ever the hell that is supposed to mean, are some how ever so superior to any one who has lived in the past; by extention the past is not worth studying, since there is nothing to be learned from all those dead white males. Yup, ignore that past two world wars, and the greatest mass murders (Stalin, Mao, Hitler, Pol Pot) in history. We continue to create problems on a global scale; the Pacific ocean is still being poisoned and pollute with radioactive waste.
                I consider it be the most absurd idea ever, that social problems can be solved by legislation. Or some how things will be better if only if “our guy” gets elected in the upcoming election. Or they really do care about “the little guy, the average working Joe” and their proposed new law will prevent the danger/disaster that is just over the horizon? It is willful shit-for-brains stupidity to have faith in the elite group of experts that can plan every thing out so well with their computer models that “the plan” will work as predicted and there will be no such thing as unintended consequenses.
                Those “morons” and “non existent deity” you mock have done more more to make the world a better place than any thing, anybody else has been able to come up with.
                Instead of mocking, guys like John Q. Public you ought to be paying attention. So you think you know it all? You know nothing, knowitall. To know, one has to admit that they don’t know and consider it possible could be wrong.
                By the way, you are a coward too. I’ve seen smug, pompous clowns like you before; You mock Christianity, because it is socially acceptable to do so and it is SAFE. But you dont have the balls to mock Islam in same way, because you know, though you will not admit, that to do so, could get you killed. I don’t know what belief system you have as your g-o-d, but I can no see any rational reason for holding it.
                I am a Christian because Jesus was/is every thing He claimed to be, and his death and resurrection from the dead is a historical fact.

                • i mock ALL religions-i don’t fear islam-i don’t fear any whacked out clown that believes such tripe.just keep believing the absurd,you sheep have been waiting 2000 years now,any time now,right.
                  idiots,grow up,grow a brain-no such thing as gods,morons.

                • Hahahaha…

                  000010 IDENTIFICATION DIVISION.

          • Be Informed, you nailed it with your comment about the superbugs, one of my main concerns. In a total financial collapse the elite will still be able to hold onto power (maybe!) as they will still control the police and military who in turn will control the restless masses.

            But you were so right about us having almost destroyed our immune systems – cuts and scratches, drinking scungy water from a creek, dirt on hands then eating a sandwich – things that as a kid my generation did continually and never so much as got a bellyache would send todays kids to hospital seriously ill only to be pumped full of antibiotics that only dumb down the immune system even further.

            Our hospitals are already breeding grounds for some serious diseases, staphylococcus (spelling???) among them and they are getting to the point where they are immune to all but the most powerful antibiotics.

            On the topic of a superbug – Ebola, SARS, MERS et al – it is not a matter of if, but when. Bubbling away in some stinking hut in Africa or China where the people live in the same room as their pigs and chickens is a virus that is only one change in DNA away from something that, all by itself can bring about Agenda 21 (whether there really is an A21 I don’t know).

            A pandemic caused by a superbug will really be a game changer as it will be non selective. It will swat the elites (every cloud has a silver lining?) just as fatally and ruthlessly as it will swat a hobo. It will devastate the police, military and key personnel in essential services – water, power, sanitation, health. If Ebola Zaire with a 90% mortality rate gets loose it really will be TEOTWAWKI.


            • I’ve said before. The Asians are like 100’s of millions of Petri dishes. With their pigs and chickens and ducks all living in close proximity. Sharing germs and fecal matter amongsts themselves.

              Just a matter of time.

              On the website, Plan For Pandemic dot com. You have people in the field all over the world posting information. Whenever there’s a flare up of bird flu. The government steps in to burn the birds. But you have ignorant people smuggling infected livestock out of the quarantined zones.

              • Why wouldn’t people be smuggling infected livestock out of the quarantined zones— the govt is, in their eyes, destroying their food and diminishing their survival options. I’ve seen nothing that suggests they even TEST anything after the first one or two. It would be like the govt destroying “feral pigs”, coming to YOUR FARM, after YOUR PIGS because they have more hair or less curly tails.

                In short, I doubt the media veracity of those articles, just like any other MSM “news”.

          • Your health is in your own hands really. As for me and my family, we practice necessary sanitation, but don’t overdo it. We need some bugs in our system to keep our immune system healthy. We avoid at all costs HFCS, GMO, MSG, etc., etc. Filter our water to take the flouride, etc. out. No doctors, unless a true emergency. Colloidal Silver, Olive Oil and other natural remedies. I know from observation that we are healthy. It’s just a lifestyle. You are responsible for yourself, to leave it to another is not only foolish, but potentially deadly.

          • Be Informed,

            “One of the worst aspects of this cycle of bad times coming is that people have totally abandoned God.”

            Sadly, this is true.

            Off Topic…

            Reading about the Fourth Turning made me think of the book of Revelation.

            Learned from more research on Manhattan, a city (once) surrounded by hills…

            The City of New York originated at the southern tip of Manhattan and expanded northward. The five boroughs (the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, and Staten Island) were consolidated into New York City in 1898.

            The United Nations, Wall Street, the NY Stock Exchange and NASDAQ are ALL located in Manhattan. New York City has been described as the “economic and cultural center of the United States” and as the “cultural and financial capital of the world.”

            A global power city, New York exerts a “significant impact on commerce, finance, media, art, fashion, research, technology, education, and entertainment.” “The Big Apple” is a nickname for New York City.

            The Statue of Liberty, (a well known symbol of our country) is also located in Manhattan. Manhattan is also one of the wealthiest areas in the country, and is the ONLY U.S. county whose per capita income exceeded $100,000 in 2010.

            The television industry developed in New York City and remains an important part of the city’s economy. The major American TV networks, (ABC, NBC and CBS) and many cable channels, (Fox, MSNBC, MTV, HBO and Comedy Central) are all headquartered in Manhattan.

            The U.S. produces and supplies ENTERTAINMENT to the world with movies and videos. Sadly, the standards of shows and movies has DROPPED in recent decades. Graphic violence, sexual innuendo, nudity, foul language, etc. are found in many shows and movies.

            The area that is now Manhattan was inhabited by the Lenape Indians for many years. The word “MANHATTAN” was translated as “ISLAND OF MANY HILLS” from the Lenape language.

            New York City was the first capital under the Constitution of the United States. In 1789 George Washington was inaugurated, the first U.S. Congress and the Supreme Court assembled, and the United States Bill of Rights was drafted – all at Federal Hall on Wall Street.

            Over the years, Manhattan has had “extensive land reclamation”. Much of the natural variation (hills) in the topography has been evened out. Material excavated from digging the subways and other building projects was used as landfill to “even out” and expand lower Manhattan.

            Originally, Marble Hill was part of Manhattan Island. The Harlem River Ship Canal, dug in 1895 to improve navigation on the Harlem River, separated it from the remainder of Manhattan as an island between the Bronx and the remainder of Manhattan.

            In the book of Genesis we learn the fruit of a tree tempted Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. Revelation 18:14 refers to the “fruit” of the great city.

            (Some research on the word fruit in Rev. 18:14.) The Greek word is “Ah-pora” and it literally means “a ripe, summer fruit”. This word is only used ONCE in the entire New Testament – in Rev. 18:14.

            Could “Babylon” spoke of in the book of Revelation be “The Big Apple”?

          • When men play at gods, the devil dances.

          • In a world that made any sense, BI’s comment would have 74,000 upvotes instead of the 74 who read here and understand.

            It is all around us and one of the most difficult things to wrap your head around is how folks either 1) do not see it, or 2) see it but do not worry about it and plan for it.

            How much more obvious does a slow collapse have to be for a supposedly homo sapien sapien to respond in a way that will assist in his or her survival?

            All life is thought to strive for survival but we have somehow developed a culture that has had that instinct bred out of it. When it hits the fan, for 98% of the people, it will be the equivalent of the Green Bay Packers versus you and your 75-year old brother Ernie.

            More and more, the movie themes of the last number of years has seemed to be an unconscious projection of what really will happen. The masses will struggle and perish but the few who have prepared and seek justice will try to provide a foundation for a new beginning.

            If you want to see where this is heading, check out that old copy of Zardoz in your video collection or rent it. We have the same high priests of technology and “culture” who have degenerated into a separate class of slave owners.

            When the bubble literally burst, they fared not well at all.

        • Eppe. Its fine. Everything is just great. Maybe…..

        • The debt bubble will burst much like it did in 1929 (here in Aussie too). We didn’t really climb out of the mess until the start of WW2.

          I have spoken at length to my father, born 1920, who live through it about what life was like then. We here, and probably you guys in the US, were just starting to become an urbanised society and the drift to the cities was not yet a flood – a large percentage of the population still live in country, rural or fringe areas, on large residential blocks or a few acres and were surprisingly largely self sufficient. Every vacant block of land had a cow, sometimes a sheep or goat. Every backyard had a veggy garden, chickens and some fruit trees. Some had pigs. Farmlets of 5 or so acres usually had a horse for ploughing as well as pulling a sulky (petrol was too scarce and too expensive). Work was scarce – mostly part time or a “day here and there”. Full time jobs people could stay at for many years or their entire working lives were rare.

          But they got by quite well. My father and his brothers were hunters and fishers and his knowledge of how to grow, preserve and propagate plants, how to tend, butcher livestock and preserve the produce – even after all these years is remarkable.

          Since the mass exodus to the cities and the dumbing down of the vast majority of the population by mechanisation, mass production etc the number of people who have any idea where food comes from and how it gets to them is miniscule. Skills gradually learned and honed through thousands of years that were once deep in our DNA have been bred out.

          Take away that mechanisation, the ability to mass produce, transport, refine, package then retail vast amounts of lifes necessities and we are left with what we here fear the most – meltdown. We survived 1929-39 because we were without really knowing it, a prepared society. We aren’t anymore. Except for a very, very few of us here.


          • I read about something that happened here in the Appalachians that precipitated the movement of people from their self sustaining plots to the cities during the Great Depression…in fact, it contributed a lot to the misery of the time.

            The American Chestnut blight that started in 1904. It annihilated these trees that made up most of the hardwood forests of Appalachia…moving from NY south at the rate of 50 miles a year.

            The people depended on the chestnuts that fattened up the hogs in fall, for food and to sell for cash. The bark was used in the tanning industry and the wood was better than cedar for building. Some of these virgin trees were 15 feet or more across at the base.

            Sometimes the woods would be six inches deep with fallen nuts and supplied all the wild game with food. When the chestnut was decimated, the game died back, the hog feed was gone and the lumber mills laid off.

            These country folk all had to head for the city to find work…but there was none. Jobs were scarce. By 1940 most of the chestnut trees were gone from the Appalachian Mountains.

            • The Good news is the American Chestnut Society has developed a bunch of resistant trees and is now replanting them. Good work takes longer than evil.

          • I grew up on a farm in NZ with parents that slaved to own it.
            We lived as self sufficently as we could. I got a job, then a trade then moved around alot. Wound up in Sydney in the 90’s and could see the writing on the wall, and with my partner brought a 100acre block of cleared land way down south of Australia. Fenced, got a job, moved, built, developed the land, got into the community thing, learnt the land and the seasons and we are now reasonably self sufficient, and could easily be more so if the need arose.

            That process from purchase to the present has taken since 96. We still have a way to go, but I hope to hand it to our son with enough productive capacity that if he wants to he will not have to work for anyone else, but he will have to grow and sell the produce.

            I am surrounded by people who see life through the same lens.

            There is hope for humanity, but it ain’t in any city.

        • One foundation of modern society rarely mentioned is petroleum. It is thanks to oil after all, that we managed to grow our world population from 1 billion to 7 in a single century. Take away the oil (or easy access to vast, cheap quantities of it), and that 7 billion number quickly reverts to 1 billion (or less). There’s just no other plentiful, portable and adaptable energy source which can also make everything from plastic to pesticides, fertilizer to pharmaceuticals.

When the “rubber meets the road”, be neither of those choices. OPSEC, strategy, and unto death commitment to ultimately defeat these DEMONS.

        • If you are digging in. You should know every inch of your area. Know ALL vectors of attacks. Get a 200 foot tape measure and measure everything. Make small spray paint marks for distance.

          Even go so far as to place triggerable boobytraps on approaches. Once the collapse has begun of course. Get some Tannerite and place it where an enemy might try to conceal themselves. Again AFTER a collapse. ILLEGAL with Rule of LAW!!!

          Stock up on bottles and cans. They can be used in multiple ways for defense. Bottles filled with a flamable fluid. Maybe adhered to a wall and the tops broken off. No rule of law. Anything goes.
          The cans can be strung together to be a noise maker. Add hooks to entrap an enemy.

          Scout and plan now!!! Make the attackers as uncomfortable as possible before the shooting even starts.

          • my cans will be tied together in “mats” that can be laid in the hallway, by the front/back doors….outside of windows. it will be very hard, no, impossible to get through them without making a LOT of noise. one roll of 20lb test will just about do it. and in the morning when you get up, pick them up easily and keep them in a garbage can.

            There is nice real estate in New Zealand with mountains, water, trees and grass. No one for miles. Buy a ranch on a lake with views. Try Sothbey’s for the photos.

            Make sure to mortgage it with a loan from a “too big to fail bank” that will fail with the reset and nuclear war. After seven years it could be yours by adverse possession. Check local law.

            No one will be coming around to collect and with a good rifle and scope you can greet them at the fence line. Think outside the box. 🙂

            • BTW, the ouster of Eric Cantor demonstrates that Americans CAN effect change in their government without a lot of money, but just by being personally involved.

            Tannerite is only explosive once the catalyst has been added. And the product is only good to go boom the same day the catalyst was added.

            I looked into this because I had same ideas you posted….think flower pots along sidewalk to house or on porch.

        • Very well said.

      8. So, what your saying is, we’re screwed?

        • If we are screwed then let us make a vow to send as many demons ahead as we can.

        • For the majority of Americans now, Retirement is just a pipe dream. We will all work and scrape by till we drop.

          • WhoWudda
            You got it right. Middle class is going down and most of us thought we would have some type of a retirement to kick back. Not now, well be busting ass til we take the dirt nap. None of us planned for it then but its here and those of us seeing the working mans demise know what were in for.

            Best if we can join up w/ like minded folks and family while we can. The hardest part for most of us will be the lawlessness and how well have to deal w/ the looters and shooters. Well be taking criminals head-on ourselves. And at our place we take no prisoners.

      9. And get out of the cities now…

        The mayor of Milwaukee has started a new phone hotline that anyone can call and give info about illegal or suspicious guns. ‘The police need all the help they can get to lower gun violence’.

        Someone please tell me how this will lower the number of idiots shooting at each other.

        We should give out free guns to everyone. The blacks would shoot each other and the rest could defend themselves!! Best way to solve this problem.

        • Those assholes need to get a hotline for the nuts on SSRIs so that all schools and communities know whos gonna go bat crazy violent.

      10. The idea that war goes in 80 years cycles is just stupid. What about the War of 1812, the Mexican War, Spanish-American War, World War I, Korea, and Vietnam?

        The Obama administration isn’t incompetent. They’re destroying America and aiding violent Islam throughout the Middle East. The globalists hated the America that existed during Ronald Reagan and they’re making sure that America will never be the “threat” that it once was. The globalists by definition want a one world government. You can’t have one without destroying America.

        Helping Islam in the Middle East is both about pipelines and also about surrounding Israel with violent Islamic governments. That’s because the globalists serve Satan. And like all those who serve Satan, they hate the Jews. And they’re in a position to try to destroy Israel and make God a liar at the same time.

        The left has a Nazi Germany-Soviet Union style alliance with Islam (you can’t say “radical Islam” because all true Islam is violent). Both groups hate each other but each is useful to the other for the time being. The alliance makes sense because both groups hate America, Israel, and the Jews.

        • @ Barn Cat,

          Do you have any-ANY theological training at all besides Sunday School? Can you translate the Original texts from Hebrew or Greek? How many years of Church History studies do you have under your belt? Have you ever preached a sermon, pastored a church, led anyone to Christ? Have you ever read anything by Martin Luther, John Calvin, Edwards, or Augustine ?

          I am a Seminary Grad and a retired Pastor, and what you write here is filled with errors, half truths, and down right heresy.

          Ideas like yours reflect badly upon God’s Church and frankly you should be ashamed of what you write here.

          First off, read some Church History, find out where Dispensational Theology comes from and how the vast majority of Christian Scholars translate the texts.

          Then pray that the Lord shows you the truth. Christ said that He was the way and no one comes to the Father except through Him. The Jews don’t believe in Him, thus they are excluded from God’s Covenant of Salvation with The Faithful.

          • There are plenty of “pastors” who are blind and deceived. Like the Pharisees, education doesn’t equate to wisdom and truth.

            God never excluded anyone. I personally know many Jews who are born-again, Jesus Christ-loving believers.

            Shame on a “pastor” for teaching that God excludes anyone from salvation.

            “Whosoever will may come.”

            • Grafique… Faith is nothing more than a set of beliefs absent of any facts. Go put your Religion for Dummies book away and seek reality. Nobody is going to save you.

              • Grafigue, according to your own definition of faith, you are guilty of it yourself, unless you can make a strong case of it with “facts”.

                The true definition of faith is an allegiance based on good, sound and reasonable evidence, of which does in fact exist for the Christian worldview.

                • Good Reasons,
                  Not sure exactly what you’re saying I’m guilty of. Do you think I’m excluding anyone? Whatever it is you’re saying, it would be a mistake to look to me for perfection. I struggle with sin as much as anyone else.
                  The good news is that God never excluded anyone. There are many folks on this website who claim that God has excluded the Jews from salvation, but nothing could be further from the truth. That is a man-made doctrine; a damnable lie. These folks twist and the warp the Word of God to suit their own prejudices and hatred, but the fact remains that not one of them can point out in the Bible where it says that the church has replaced Israel in God’s mind. They quote from books written by men, trying to obliterate the Bible.

                  Better man than them have tried. They are gone; the Bible remains.

              • Never heard of that book.

                • Hey Grafique: The Bible is found in the Fiction Section, along with the Koran, Micky Mouse and Donald Duck. Tell us again how Noah put 2 of every single animals on the planet on one big boat, sailed for months, and not one animal ate the other and how he kept them all fed and civil. Then when he landed he some how turned them all loose, they waved and went on to populate the world. Really? You believe that?

                  • The Bible says no such thing. I’m disinclined to explain the word of God to someone who has no faith and is only going to mock what I say.

                    If you want me to explain the Bible to you, first find some faith in God, and then I will try to help you.

            • If you think you can do it yourself…it isn’t Salvation.

              • Absolutely right.

              • When you die, you go into a permanent Dirt Nap. The End for you. There is no salvation, no heaven, no hell, no 70 virgins, nothing. And all that remains left of you, is a memory for the living. Religion is a very powerful tool based on Fear to dupe the gullible and weak into submission. Stop being a slave to all religions. Take the chains off and live free to think for yourself. There are about 105 recognized religions out there, as many as alcoholic beverages. Keep drinking the kool-aid, as nobody is saved and we will all die when it is our time. Accept it.

                • Who would thunk it. You wrong. Now im not a Christian. Im not affiliated with any religion. However Im certain I have a immortial soul. Ive reincarnated many times. In this life I have the ability to astral travel. That correct my soul can leave my living physical body go to other places & demensions & times and return. The dirt nap isn’t the end its the beginning of another adventure. he white light folks see when they die. that light is the light they see as that are emerging from the womb. You could be reborn to the very same life & time you just left or some other different life and time . born to a time in the future or a time in the past.Of course you don’t believe me. That Ok you are free to do and think as you wish because your the one who has to live with the results of your thoughts & deeds. Ive several times seen a vision of one possible version the near future of the planet earth. in that vision the whole planet is burnt. all organic matter is burnt. the metal things twisted & melted. No soil just charred blackened rocks & gravel. no water no life. Not light not dark just twilite.

            • @grafique

              That sounds true to me, and that is PRECISELY why I believe that ANY group that sets itself above all other people as inherently EVIL. It doesn’t matter whether they call themselves the “master race” or the “chosen people”; its all the same sick evil mentality that divides humanity into an “in group” that feels it has the right to do anything it wants, and an “out group” which the in group thinks is there to be enslaved or exterminated.

              Evil is evil, no matter who is practicing it

              Ideals Mastering Power Creating All Life GOD IS

              • Don’t ya find it amazing how one group of people think they are the chosen few. When in fact 85% of all Jews today have no bloodlines to the land they claim as Israel. That 85% were Russian Jews and Georgian Jews from the land of the country today known as Georgia. It would be like if today, America’s Blacks claimed Atlanta as somehow their Promise homeland, made of milk and honey because some alien force told them so.

              • IMPCALGI, apparently you believe in God, yes? Have you ever read the Bible? If you have, then you know that the Jews didn’t set themselves above anybody. However, God did choose the Jews to be his nation of priests on the earth.
                That’s what “chosen” means.
                Lose the hate.

          • @Educated Sinner…

            Reading Barn Cat’s post just prior to yours, and for the life of me, I can’t find a thing wrong with what he wrote, or anything that contradicts scripture.

            I don’t consider myself a Bible scholar, but I’ve read it through many times, and done a little reading on church history AND doctrine regarding eschatology. And I’ve come to the conclusion that Dispensational Theology is a pile of bovine scat that had no place in Church dogma prior to the 1830’s. It is a heresy put together, developed and promulgated by John Darby and C.I. Scofield (a philandering con-man). Scofield in particular conned his way into the most respected branch of Evangelical Christianity of his time, where his heresy took root. His “Scofield Bible” with its heretical notes (which were considered almost inspired themselves by many Evangelicals) helped to spread it.

            I grew up in churches that fully embraced it. But I actually read my Bible and saw how twisted Dispensational Theology really is, and rejected it.

          • Retired Pastor?

            Holy Smokes!

          • Educated Sinner< The answer is NO, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn. Trekker Out.

        • Wow. I never thought i’d hear barncat be critical of any doom and gloom prediciton. But I can’t agree more. What did happen to the great war – that’s a lot of dead soldiers and word changing power struggles to just skip over. And what really are these “generations” that they are talking about? Last I checked babies were being born every day at a pretty steady rate. How does one decide there is a generation that just “started” 80 years ago?

          • Read the book. Relying on a short essay to judge the work that went into that book will mislead you. The book is well researched and scary as hell when predicting what is coming.

            • I’ve read the book and everything they say is coming to pass. So far the decline has been slow, but some spark will set us off. Just like a hassled street vendor setting himself on fire started the Arab Spring.

              Went shopping yesterday and discovered the half and half I need for coffee went up 10% to $2.08 at Walmart and $2.18 in the supermarket. If I buy bread at the local convenience store that’s $4.15. Since most new jobs pay minimum wage, the cost of feeding a family will add even more pressure to the middle and lower classes. I don’t care what the government statistics say about inflation, because they lie. We can thank the Fed for making our money worthless.

              And, as I have said many times before, the only way to survive is to find some land in the country, far away from a city, where you can grow or raise your own food. (That was also recommended by another prophetic book, “The Great Reckoning.”)

              • Putting half and half in coffee is certain trip to hell.

                Change your ways or suffer the consequence…and…

                “don’t go down without one helluva fight”

        • Barn Cat the 80 year turning cycle isnt just about war. Its an event or some catalyst that pushes the tipping point.

      11. Standing ovation, Mr. Quinn.

        Excellent rant.

      12. I don’t post often, but I read comments here every other day or so. I have a good situation as far as land, arms, water. I believe the time is close, if you are just starting with preps, get a good pistol and rifle and ammo. If you don’t see what can come down the pike you haven’t been paying attention.

        The federal Reserve screwed savers with an interest rate of almost zero to force money into the stock market to prop it up. The banks are the only ones who benefit. The invasion is coming over the border, do you know who is actually coming?

        Civilization is but a thin veil covering a mass of humanity, lift it off and you have what is happening in Iraq. Think it can’t happen here?

      13. Barn Cat… Are you talking about the dual citizen Jews in high positions in the u.s. government that were and are in strategic positions to pull off 9-11 and continue the cover up? Who did 9-11 benefit? Why Israel of course. I don’t see that as biblical.

        • Conspiracy theory hogwash.

          • Grafique & Barn Cat: It is time for you two to have a ZOG party at the barn.

            • If you don’t like what I say, go somewhere else.

        How quaint it all is once again..


        • And once a few heads of embassy people are taken, the game is on….

        • I say we put a few hundred thousand Israelis on the ground in Iraq. After all its their war.

      16. Well, a war is what they wanted and it looks like they got it…again. Ironic how that statement was released just the other day stating that ‘War is good for the economy’. There may be a grain of truth to that statement, but war is total crap for everything else.

        -Russians mobilizing tanks on border of Ukraine.
        -Explosions at Baghdad Airport
        -Senators and MSM mouthpieces shouting another 9/11 is imminent.

        Now I know why everyone only gets 24 hrs in each day…it is your most precious resource…don’t waste another second of it!

      17. “Income Inequality” is the new “issue” contrived by the leftist/socialist/Marxist/communist Democrat Party.

        In a free country, there will OF COURSE be income inequality. The only way to have equal incomes is for the Government Central Planners to mandate what everyone earns.

        Do you really want an unskilled teenage dropout making the same as an experienced, middle-aged technician or professional?

        At that point, the only difference between the US and the Soviet Union will be…what? I can’t think of anything.

        • We like Bourbon, they like Vodka?

        • When a sub fraction of one percent controls such an amount of wealth to control the media, financial sector and government that “wealth inequality” destroys a free society.

          When Andrew Mellon bailed out the US government with his money the concept of “one man one vote” became moot. Its been more or less downhill ever since.

          “Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely”.

          • So Kevin2, what would you replace America with? There’s no such thing as “no government”.

        • Not much difference between Bolshevik Russia and the US anymore.

          The Bolshevik immigrants defeated the Mayflower immigrants about a hundred years ago.

          Shoulda given them a return ticket at Ellis Island.

        • The founders believed that all men were “created” equal.

          The left wants to “make” all men equal. And their method is to drag some “down” by stealing from them in order to “elevate” others that they deem more deserving.

          As Rush Limbaugh once said, “The only difference between a liberal and a communist, is that a communist actually knows what he is doing.”

      18. Really are in very serious danger. The problem is no one knows what to say. We don’t know what to say because we don’t know what to do.

        All screaming about it has done is to cause some to panic into mad prepping while others call Bravo Serra and turn their backs. If we had the answers don’t you think we would have already begun to implement the solutions?

        Unless of course we are in danger because that’s the plan; which is very likely. When the marks finally discover that the game has been rigged all along, the sharks always turnover the tables on their way out to facilitate their escape.

        Anyone can see that the tables are being overturned even as we speak. In the meantime the wanna be sheriff is riding away in a golf cart.

      19. what people fail to understand is the government have always been corrupt even the milltary is corrupt you people think just because you vote or pay taxes you matter you don’t that’s the irony of the situation the rockfellas and rothchilds run the government no president is electted he is selceted. listen ron pual is apart of the corruption he is controlled oppostion. nobody has your interest alex jones, chris grenne are controlled. obama is going to get impeached it’ IT’S NOT ABOUT BEING LIBEREAL, REPUBLICAN OR DEMOCRAT THEY ARE CONTROLLED VOTING IS A SCAM. LOOK AT THE IMMGRATIONS THEY ARE TO DO AMERICA THE SAME WAY THE DOLLAR IS GOING TO FALL OH COLLEGE GRADS THERE ARE NO HIGH PAYING JOBS FOR YOU THOESE JOBS ARE OVERSEAS TO CHINA WHERE THEY A DOLLLAR A HOUR WITH NO BENEFITS.

      20. Sorry,but when the authors use too many adjectives it kills the message for me. I guess I am a K.I.S.S. type of person. Might be the most important message but it gets lost when you have to make a short story into a novel. Almost think some writers get paid per word.

      23. i read the 4th turning, i highly recommend it.

        i also recommend reading manias, panics and crashes.

        for all those here predicting civil unrest, the end of reliable eclectricity and runnung water; you need to know we’re not headed for those days. we may get another 1929 type crash and there maybe(most likely given the middle east, actually) war but things will right themselves relatively quickly.

        the majority isnt going back to the 1800s just because everything is really screwed up currently.

        • Optimism,

          • I’m not so sure it is optimism. We see how mixed up things are. How our freedoms seem to drain away day by day. How incomes don’t rise but prices do.

            But while most of you here seem to expect some cataclysm in the next month or so, and some battle between good and evil, or left and right, or zionists and ? aryans, etc. we expect more of the same. Lots of you even call it “the reset.” I think you’ve played too many video games and expect to get back to somewhere good.

            Lots of us just don’t see it. We expect the times to drift along very much like they have, a steady descent or plateau for years to come. The debt will get bigger and bigger. We’ll write it off, or inflate out of it. To great but endured pain of the “middle class”. But there will still be hussies on the cable tv, politicians smiling and lying, budwiser will still be selling beer, and the U.S. will still be the guys with the most nukes, and subs, and carriers – so all-too-much just won’t change.

            Do you really want to call that optimism?

            Nevertheless some of us want to be ready if something particularly bad happens, and for that we prepare – even when we don’t expect it to ever really happen.

            Wow. Am I really that bleak?

        • Leeholsen
          Just because I can see a rainbow, doesnt mean its really there.

        • @leeholsen….

          You are of course making the assumption that there will be no nuclear war, no mass pandemics, or no Solar CME’s….any of which would result in a total collapse of the power grid.

          I suggest you get beyond stage one thinking and realize that even our incompetent government recognizes the threat of a collapse of the power grid. (even though they won’t do anything to mitigate the effects of it)

          A loss of the power grid of course, means saying goodbye to running water, as well as food, since no store in the country has more than a three day supply. And trucks don’t run without fuel. And fuel doesn’t get pumped without electricity.

      24. Awesome article James. The synopsis of the fourth turning theorhetical framework definitely seems apropos for glibal events since 2008. There is 1 item about which I disagree. Edward Snowden is not a “hero” divulging tyranny. I believe that he is an agent provocateur of the cabal. What better way to fuel US dissonance and trigger civil unrest…further perpetuating societal split (have/havenots or work ethic/entitlement).
        Secondly MSM is owned by the same cabal. So they are the propaganda machine that you referred to initially. This is not new to US or to any other country.
        I would encourge all to not only church history as previously mentioned by educated sinner but also world history texts in non-whitewashed form (such as Deanna Spingola’s books The Ruling Elite, The Protocols written circa 1897 and published in 1905, Solzhenitsyn’s most recent 2 volume Russian history text written before his death in 2008 “200 years together”, Charles Lindbergh Sr’s book from 1913 banking and the money trust, Henry Ford’s compilation of articles from his Independent magazine “The International Jew”, editorial from latimes written by Joseph Stein regarding ownership and control of all media sources in this country. Heck review the history of ownership of AP and Reuters–the global source of most news….). My main point being this Predates America.

      29. Women are oppressed in Toronto.

        Anita Sarkessian reports that the sexualized, eroticized, fetishized violence against white women and sexist and racist stereotypes is nothing other then blatant misogyny.

        Kanye’s music video Monster not only glamorizes violence against white women but tries to make it it ok with a brief statement at the beginning of the music video saying it is not meant to insult anyone and it is not misogynistic. Anita Sarkessian is correct when she claims that men by nature make derogatory remarks about women, particularly white women.

        The recent mass killings by white misogynist Elliot Rodger is a product of misogyny, and violence against white women need to be stopped. First, ban guns. Second, increase jail times
        for any male who displays pre-crime contempt for white women. What will it take for us to admit that our society is misogynist? .Elliot Rodger’s California shooting spree is further proof that misogyny kills.

        How can we get the police to start working for us again?

        Endorse and support the campaign to allow the Toronto police force to use military gear and military training in dealing with sexist men on the street.

        Men who stare at the buttocks of white women are potential rapists, and lethal force is justified if the male refuses to back off from the white woman.

        Stare rape should be criminalized and be met as a justification to place the male accused into the Sex Offenders Registry.

        Is the white female race superior? This makes sense since white females have led the way in civilization during the last 10,000 or so years.

        White women in Toronto and the West lead the way in the intellectual jobs while white trash males, with their defective DNAs and cerebral cells, are unable to compete with females in school.

        Should Toronto society show pity to the less fortunate, to the men with inferior genes? I agree that they are classed as humans, most of the feminist movement in Canada acknowledges them as human form, even though they’re behind white women in in evolution.

        White women in Toronto, Canada are getting hotter. Bathing suits went from boring to blazing, and sexist males leer at the bikini lines of white women as if they are objects.

        I think this sums up the hole fucking ball of wax.

          A persons value system and perception is powerful.
          Values and life defined by the system are meaningless.

          Reject systemic manipulation. Make life on your own terms and THRIVE.

        • Agreed. If someone said “I’ll give you 15 minutes to show me what’s wrong with the world” I think you couldn’t do a whole lot better than just sitting them down in front of this.

          The insanity, when seen like this, is beyond staggering. No matter what your religious disposition, it really speaks clearly there is Evil and there are those who are resisting it.

      31. Ever wonder why you don’t hear Lindsey Graham or John McCain ranting against the Kurds like they do about ISIS? The Kurds have taken over northern Iraq including another city just a couple days ago. Never heard them called “terrorists”.

        The reason being they control the northern oilfields and are keeping the spice flowing.

        The Sunni backed “ISIS” wants their oilfields back that were stripped from the Iraqi people and given to the International oil companies.

        This will never happen as long as the US government can help it. Even to the point of co-operation with Iran. The real beef with Iran is that THEY control their oil and not the IOCs. It has nothing to do with nuclear weapons. Smoke and mirrors.

        All wars involving today’s Empire are resource related. The spice must flow. The military is defending black gold for International Oil Companies and the Petro Dollar.

        • The funniest thing I saw yesterday was Sen Lindsay Graham crawling on his knees, begging Iran to help with the collapse in Iraq. He followed up with. And don’t try to take any Iraqi land. LoL Last week Graham demanded Iran be Nuked. Talk about war mongering psychopaths running this Govnt.

          I’m old enough to remember duck and cover in school in the 1960s. How times have changed that to find factual information I need to go to news out of Russia.

      34. You know things are getting bad when more Brits are interested in joining the radical Islamists in Iraq and Syria than joining the Army reserves:

        The one positive note is this: Americans may soon get the opportunity to legally kill British citizens, which certainly adds a little extra fun to all the war-fighting.

        I have never particularly trusted modern Britain and the general direction it has taken, but that story says it all.

        The past 20 years have seen radical changes to European society and it is no longer the Europe people will have remembered from their trips there in the 70s and 80s.

      35. The Daily Sheeple has an article about just how terrible islam is. This is the truth about just how awful islam is. All one has to do is just see how these towel heads treat other muslims. These idiots can’t even get along with each other, shia vs. sunni. These bloodthirsty maniacs are beyond savage and enjoy tearing apart other human beings and animals. These monsters enjoy suffering. Anyone that treats women and children the way muslims do are being sadistic, they are part of the darkest of all evil and wickedness.

        I wrote a response to the Daily Sheeple’s article because I am so sick and tired of the way the MSM and the government filter out any condemnation of these brutal mid evil cult called islam. I think most people will agree with what I said that islam is completely anti-God, anti-good, anti-fair, anti-sanity.

        Here is what I wrote:

        And we are suppose to be politically correct and not even use the words radical extremist muslim. These diaper heads crucify, actually crucify a Christian, shoot little children holding their Bibles in their hands, behead anyone that is not a muslim, burn other places of worship, rape and molest children, etc., etc., etc. However we are not suppose to be “bigots” against these maniacs because it is “not fair”.

        How often do these so called “moderate” muslims condemn these camel screwers that buried a woman alive up to her neck and stone her to death because she spoke against the quran or didn’t bow down to islam? How often do these so called moderate muslims condemn the rape of little children and marriage of these perverts that is allowed by the most evil of any religion of islam? How often do these moderate muslims condemn when these sand maggots go in and blow themselves with a suicide belt at some crowd of people? How often do these moderates condemn when scores of innocent people are gunned down? Moderate?????? No sympathizer to pure evil.

        Islam is worse than satanism. The quran is the devil’s bible. Muslims are a disease, a cancer on the planet and completely against any and all forms of God. Allah is another word for DEVIL. Their whole belief is based on slaughter of all infidels. Screw being politically correct. I and others have something called free speech, and I and others can express our true feelings about islam. This is an evil wicked cult and completely void of peace. Their prayer is chanting to the evil one, or the darkest of negative energy that there is. Muslims are the scourge of the human species and they CHOSE this. Unlike someone’s race, people can chose to be part of this pure evil or not. A muslim chooses to be evil and dark. A muslim chooses to be a head hunter and savage and barbaric. Exercising my First Amendment right I say muslims are like rabid rats, only serving to spread death and disease. The sooner an asteroid or comet impacts the heart of Middle East where this fungus is most pronounced the better.

          I will give them one point. When they say they are going to cut your head off, they are not just whistling Dixie. They do it!

      36. Need more sandbags.

        So, do you have a Plan A? Backup Plan B? Do you have a check list to guide you when your mind starts to spin. I think it is too late to get others to prepare. Should they ask for help in preparing “THEIR” stuff, I would help. But you need to set a point of no return.
        I believe there are a few traits a prepper should achieve before chaos reigns supreme.

        The ability to uncover BULSHIT ARTISTS! A simple task like changing a flat tire. Many would say yes. Do it!

        The ability to trust ones own feelings. That sixth sense. When it don’t feel right. The others senses will tell you, like a wiff of a smell of a dangerous chemical.

        The ability to adapt to the environment and I will include BUGS. The biting kind.

        Being able to apply many uses to materials which most only see one purpose. Redundancy comes into play here too.

        Know your limits and those around you.

        I have been doing this stuff for a long time and most stuff, I do not have to think about it. It is reactionary. A benefit from military service. But I am a little slower than I was so time/reaction is my greatest enemy for survival.

        Hell getting old.

      37. From where I am it is hard to see a turning. The zip code 77494 is the fastest growing area in the nation. Yet I can see things falling apart in other places. My workload has gone down 30% the last week or so, we shall see where it goes from here. I saw how developers went belly up in the 80’s and left slabs of concrete sit for years before eventually being built into a home. It can happen again….

      38. What about these rat’s coming across our southern borders, could they be “disedsed rats”

      39. Everybody here should read James Quinn’s articles concerning “The Fourth Turning”. All of his articles at The Burning Platform are great and on target, matching up with what is happening out there. But, his section covering The Fourth Turning is excellent!

      40. With all this religion popping up, curious which religions, (Except Mormon) have the highest concentration of preppers. Who preaches the most about survival.

      46. It’s getting close…

      47. One thing I think many people forget that will make this cycle infinitely worse than any before it. Up until the last cycle, the majority of people owned land and could feed themselves, had basic knowledge of how to raise and slaughter animals, had basic knowledge of how to can and store food, etc.
        Now, nobody owns land, nobody knows how to feed themselves or survive off the land. We are not our grandparents generation that went through the Great Depression and WWII. They were still 60+ rural farmers. They had “victory gardens”. They could set a bone and cure a fever at home. They could raise chickens, cook a meal, and wash clothes without a machine. Probably less than 5% of those in our country today can do any of those things.

        When the SHTF this time, it will be like nothing we’ve ever seen. People simply have no skills and no ability to survive, and they won’t.


      49. @Grafique

        Yes, I believe in GOD. And yes, I have read the Bible, even though it has nothing to do with my faith. I attended Christian schools for 8 years, long enough to have read over and over how the Jews most certainly have set themselves above all people. Look at the language: “goyim” means “the nations”, meaning all those “other” people who are not part of the “chosen” people… and you think that is NOT hate?

        Here are some verses from the Old Testament; please tell me how these are NOT hate-filled:

        And when the LORD thy God shall deliver them before thee; thou shalt smite them, and utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor show mercy unto them

        But thus shall ye deal with them; ye shall destroy their altars, and break down their images, and cut down their groves, and burn their graven images with fire.

        For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God: the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.

        So let’s examine this, shall we? The claim is being made that one group of people, the “chosen” people has the right to exterminate any of those “other” people that get in their way. They have the “duty” to not make peace with them, to attack them, to utterly destroy them. And notice that there is nothing prohibiting the mass slaughter of women and children; that’s what “utterly” means. The “chosen” people have the commandment to destroy the houses of worship of all those “other” people who disagree with them, to desecrate the holy sites of those “other” people. And not just the people who lived in Canaan — and notice that those “other” people were there FIRST, before they were massacred by the “chosen” people — this rule applies to “all people that are upon the face of the earth”

        ALL people. That includes you, Grafique. It includes me. It includes Mac. It includes EVERY person posting here who is not one of the “chosen”. Do you really suppose that it is an accident that so many of the people who are trying to disarm the citizens of this country consider themselves “chosen”? Bloomberg, who has armed bodyguards to protect himself, but won’t let any of those “lesser” people in NYC have a firearm to defend themselves. Feinstein, who has had a CWP for years, but wants to take away YOUR right to defend yourself. And they are certainly not alone!

        Note for the record that there are many Jewish people who have rejected this point of view. There many Jewish people who fight and have fought for freedom and decency in general, for ALL people, not just the people who worship as they do. But that much being said, there are certainly many others who still hold to this “us vs them” mentality,not just in ancient times, but today, right now, right at this moment.

        The very idea that ANY group of people has the right to set itself “above all people that are upon the face of the earth” is 100% EVIL. That applies to any group: its not “OK” if its done by one group, but somehow “bad” if its done by some other group.

        Next time you want to lecture anyone about hate, you might want to pull your head out of your ass, wipe the shit from your eyes, and see the world as it actually IS

      50. It looks like the British are especially keen to meet the fighter aircraft of the US:

        I just couldn’t see how, during WWII, it would have been possible for Germans and Japanese to freely travel back and forth to fight ally forces while still living in the UK, US etc. It boggles the mind…
