“Like All Sleight-of-Hand Games It Cannot Continue Forever”

by | Mar 11, 2013 | Headline News | 577 comments

Spring is in the air, stock markets are driving higher than ever before, and happy days are here again.

Or are they?

The facts are that last night Japanese machinery orders fell 13% in January, despite the Japanese government pledging to “beat deflation” with new monetary operations (read: printing money) that has driven the Yen weaker by some 20% in the last couple of months.  That move started in December and as such should have been reflected in January’s order figures — if anyone believed it in Japanese business.

They clearly don’t.

Then there’s China.  They have a major property bubble problem, which is what always comes when you start printing cheap “money” (really credit) and allowing it to go into the real estate market.  In China’s case it’s built to the point of literal cities with nobody living in them.  That will eventually burst, and when it does you’ve got trouble.  China has the “luxury” of having an effective command economy since they’re a communist nation, but even that won’t change the laws of mathematics.

Finally we have Europe.  It’s a basket case.  Europe has failed to deal with its banks, it has failed to deal with its budget deficits and it is still trying to find a way to “pull forward demand” to fill fiscal holes.  It’s not working because it can’t — the leverage was never taken out.  Not there and not here.

We’re “printing” $85 billion a month and yet can only muster a 0.1% GDP print?  Let’s assume we manage to “rebound” and get a 2% GDP number.  We’re diluting purchasing power by ~8% annually!  Where is that going?  Right into the middle class and below’s pocketbook; like a thief in the night it comes and steals their buying power and that ultimately has to reflect in what they purchase — and thus what people sell.

There are those who argue that the housing market has “turned.”  Really?  Look at Las Vegas, where there are tens of thousands of homes sitting with people in them who haven’t made a mortgage payment in three years!

… The key question: Is this a stable environment or is it another bubble that will bust when cap rates fall?  And if the latter, and you erroneously bet on a “housing recovery”, are you going to get reamed twice in a decade?

In short what we have here is a market that is levitating upward not due to an improving macro environment but rather due to Fed monetary games.  This can and has worked for a while, but like all sleight-of-hand games it cannot continue forever, and won’t.  The structural imbalances that have been built over the last four years set the table for a snapback move worse than 2008.

This morning CNBS is playing a card that we “should” put forward fiscal policy mirroring The Fed’s views.  These clowns actually believe that the laws of mathematics have been repealed?

Give me a break.  The guy who decides he doesn’t need more than 2 hours of sleep a night and starts shoving coke up his nose to achieve that outcome may indeed produce more work with less sleep and appear to be more productive.

For a while.

But eventually he has a heart attack, and the question becomes this: What are you going to do when you collapse due to the abuse you have heaped on your body and now are able to produce nothing?

Our economy is experiencing chest pains and rapidly-escalating amounts of coke are going up the nose on a daily basis.

Source: Karl Denninger’s Market Ticker

Fundamentally, nothing has changed since 2007. The only thing keeping the stock market rising and the economy seemingly stable is the literal Trillions of dollars of funny-money being slammed into the system on a regular basis. They did it in the U.S., in Europe and in China.

As Karl Denninger points out, this is akin to a cocaine addict continuously snorting to maintain their high. It always ends badly for the addict, as it will for us.

There is a strong chance that we see a stock market crash, or at the very least a massive correction, in coming weeks or months.

But, there is also the possibility that it keeps going higher, an effect of the Fed’s monetary easing and cheap money being given to banks who then leverage that money in stocks and other financial instruments. In this scenario, as we’ve seen since 2008, prices for essential goods continue to rise. What won’t rise is wages commensurate with the price inflation, which means that things like food, gas, and electricity become so expensive that disposable income shrinks to near zero (or goes negative) for the majority of Americans.

There is no way out.

All roads lead to a detonation of the financial, monetary and economic systems as we have come to know them.


(Watch at Youtube)

When the economies of the world’s ‘super regions’ finally collapse, and hundreds of millions of people are left destitute and with no hope of recovery, the end result may very well be nuclear engagements across the globe.

Inflation is Running at 40-Year Highs!

Negative interest rates are taxing savers, creating food shortages, and making life miserable in the United States!

There's little time left before the REAL DISASTER occurs!

                  We talk on this site about ways to help this country recover from or avoid a collapse, I think this video presents one good one…

            “The president of the “conservative” Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis said on Friday, Feb. 22nd that FOMC policy will remain loose for a long time.

            There is no problem, he says.

            This policy of buying $1 trillion a year in Treasury bonds and Fannie/Freddie bonds is more powerful than expected. This will create U.S. economic growth of 3%.

            Why? The fiscal cliff is behind us. The crisis in Europe is behind us.

            Here is what bush sr said and I quote Clearly, no longer can a dictator count on East-West confrontation to stymie concerted United Nations action against aggression. A new partnership of nations has begun. And we stand today at a unique and extraordinary moment. The crisis in the Persian Gulf, as grave as it is, also offers a rare opportunity to move toward an historic period of cooperation. Out of these troubled times, our fifth objective — a new world order — can emerge: a new era, freer from the threat of terror, stronger in the pursuit of justice, and more secure in the quest for peace. An era in which the nations of the world, east and west, north and south, can prosper and live in harmony THIS SCUMBAG BUSH SAID HE WANTED A NEW WORLD ORDER, THE BUSHES ARE A BIG PART OF WHY THE USA IS SO MESSED UP RIGHT NOW

              And you should start adding something of value. Are you preparing for the future?

                  Anonymous….You have been a regular blogger on here since I began here. I cannot remember if you have said much about yourself on prepping.

                  I have. I have about 4 months worth of food for 4 people. Will continue until I reach 6 months. In back yard we have 2 garden spots and also 16 fruit trees.

                  My biggest area of need is purchasing a shortwave radio and also a solar generator. I’ve been slow because you can spend much monies on junk.

                  Anyway, I was just curious what you were doing?

                  Ugly. Booger is just Nina off his Meds. And Daisy is not the same. At her own blog and in her stories/and Post you can see the change over time. And I think it because she has befriended people such as Nina and the hate crowd here…

                  She hate all not like her just as much she just thinks she’s polite about it.

          If I were the Head of DHS charged with the responsibility for the safety of the American people and the preservation of the nation; and if I knew that Nibiru were real and would present itself to US in unmistakable terms within a few years, having a profound effect upon all of civilization, I would order:

          1. 2 billion rounds of ammunition of various caliber, anticipating that supply lines would be severed and production facilities destroyed;

          2. I would accelerate the construction of underground facilities to house OUR command and control structures to maintain OUR national defense;

          3. I would want 30,000 drones in the sky to monitor conditions on the surface, repel any aggressors, and coordinate police charged with corralling the zombie hoards bent on destruction, mayhem, and murder;

          4. I would ensure that there were sufficient internment camps for the zombies, 7,000 “personal defense weapons” for the use of Camp personnel, and 2700 armored vehicles to help round the zombies up, rather than let them ravage the countryside;

          5. I would want ExO’s in place sufficient to organize the chaos and quell the insanity;

          6. I would WANT the population unarmed to make my job protecting them easier; BUT instead, I would direct all gun owners to register with their local Sheriff’s Posse to swell the ranks of legally armed citizens desiring to protect their community;

          7. I would be transparent about the potential threat to civilization …. and delay that announcement for as long as possible understanding that madness could ensue throughout the length and breadth of society; and to ensure that I had all possible preparations in place beforehand.

          8. I would rely on conspiracy theorists and Alt Media to spread their concerns and encourage others to prepare for “Doomsday” understanding that there are limits to what I can do to protect every individual American; knowing that some enlightened souls could read the handwriting on the wall and become ….

                  In 2012 the Indiana legislature passed a law allowing people to shoot anyone who executes an unlawful entry into their homes — including police officers. It’s designed to “protect the person or a third person from what the person reasonably believes to be the imminent use of unlawful force,” even when it’s the police or other enforcement agents coming through the door at 2am.

                  So far, members of our legislature not only want us to keep our guns, they want us to use them to protect ourselves, and they want to encourage police and other law enforcement operatives to obey the laws.

        This site has seriously gone downhill since I started coming here. That was 4 years ago. Use to be the comment section had some good comments. There are still a few but for the most part, most of the comments here are just filled with hate and bullshit. We use to mostly be on the same page with what was going on. Now I don’t think so. From most of the comments here I’m guessing that if the shit ever does hit the fan in a big way, most of you idiots will be the dumb fuckers I would be shooting at. Too bad Mac. You had a great thing going for along time.

        • john ina box

          Wow Bill I couldn’t have said it better. The blog is so terrible with all the infighting I barely even visit the site anymore, much less read the comments. It is such a shame.

          Mac, you used to have a good blog. I’m not blaming you or anything, I guess this is just what happens when you reach a certain level of people. Mob mentality has definitely taken over. All people are concerned about anymore is who is “right”. I never see any actual prepping info or anything useful at all for that matter anymore. Your site has become what your original readers hate.

          I’m not going to call your site a sell out, I’ll let you read the blog and determine that for yourself. In my humble opinion I believe you have sacrificed quality for page views. But like I said, what can you do? A small group of people can be an amazing intellectual thing bouncing ideas off one and other and what not. But when any group gets too big politics inevitably take over and the original message is lost.

          All of you bitchy bloggers should go find somewhere else to hash out your petty arguments. Until then……Adios SHFT blog. It’s been real.

          P. S. Mac I still do commend you for putting out real stories always backed by facts. Thanks for that. Keep up the good work.

        “””When the economies of the world’s ‘super regions’ finally collapse, and hundreds of millions of people are left destitute and with no hope of recovery,”””

        Hopefully, at that point, they will at least try to understand WHY it happened and WHO is responsible. There are now millions who can at least partially answer the why, even if they can’t yet comprehend the who.

        Nothing will turn them to God quicker than being tossed into the financial trash heap by the banksters. Most of what the sheep consider important will prove to be worthless. It was important only because the corporations convinced them so.

        The collapse will be hard on many. Many will die. many will use their last breath for revenge against who they think caused the problems. It is imperative that we stay alive to educate enough of them to give their last breath for freedom, in exchange for making a bankster or politicians breath their last.

        The collapse is coming. the corp wants you to think it will end the world and kill you. What it will actually do is OPEN a window for the people to fight back. The unknown is whether the People will use it.

      • RickInOregon

        The stock market isn’t an indicator of the health of the USA economy. It doesn’t reflect the realities of the street. I no longer use it’s upsides as an indicator of where the economy will be in six months. I tend to look at it as a white collar currency laundromat that facilitates the raping of the American treasury and it exist within a toxic bubble. It’s growth doesn’t help the economy, just the insiders and well connected but when the toxic bubble burst, it will be felt by all.

      • BigB

        Actual number of the shadow inventory is closer to 2.9. The majority of them are now the property of HUD via the primary mortgage insurance guaranteed by Freddie May and Freddie Mac. The you have another 2 to 5 million homes that are 6 months or worse delinquent.

        Fredie Mac now has a policy that if you make a payment in a calender year the clock on forelosure starts all over. This is all being subsidized by the American Taxpayer. Then you have the Federal Reserve which is printing 85 billion dollars per month out of thin air and applying that money, or a big part, to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to pay the investors off that loaned the money out in the first place. They, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, are the insurers of these loans as mandadted by federal law that allowed the finaciers to write these loans.

        To top it all off they have started making the same loans again. 3% down and credit score of 580 will get you into a house no questions asked. A guy who owns 3 homes outright and wants to put 50% down on a house cannot get a loan because it is not insured by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac. Because the bankers know this is all going to crumble and they want to make sure they get the money they loaned with interest back fom the U.S. Government.

        Think what I just said is Bullsh*t? Check it out. Talk to a real estate broker or some one who works at a home lending company.

        Astounding and amazing isn’t it. Factor that in with no new jobs people are getting have the wages to afford a home not even in a 2 family income household. But because of federal lending giudelines the banks have to follow most people can qualify. Why is the bank the bad guy when all they do is lend by the government guidelines?

        Good question, thanks BigB for asking it. You see when the home buyer defaults and the loan is kicked back for payment by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac then the bank still retains the right to manage the loan. So as in any contract the first thing that comes out of any proceeds such as payments or refinancing is the collection costs.

        Now that the loan is delinquent the bank makes money all the way till that house is sold at auction or by a realtor. First thing out of those proceeds is a check to the bank who originaly financed it for collection costs. By the way 8 out of 10 homes in America are being sold on the steps of the courthouses for back taxes. The banks or federal enity holding the notes don’t care as the value is virtualy nothing. 30% of those are being bought by Chinese investment companies.

        If these houses were put out on the market peoples equities in thier homes would plunge by at least 50%. As I have stated before the sh*t has already hit the fan and most people are just to ignorant to know it.

          Wait what?

          Ok I get the whole thing about not releasing them into the wild. That part I get.

          Ok so if Mr. Guy with his 3 homes and 50% down can’t get a loan, then…. he just gets a Fannie loan???

          Or… something???

          It’s not computing for me, sorry…

          • Theguy

            Oh wait I get it.

            Basically unless you sign up for the 3% down “to infinity and beyond” payment plan insured by Freddy Kruger, you can’t buy jack sh*t unless you plop down 100%.

            … wow that sucks…

            So… ok wait NOW I don’t get the whole thing about them not being in the market. I mean… they’re… selling them, aren’t they? They’re in the market one way or the other… pretty much… unless they’re destroyed or sold to foreign investors only… just because it’s a fed auction doesn’t mean they’re not in the market… does it?

            • BigB

              Every case is different. The houses are not on the market. Some do make it to market most of them that do are short sales.

        • durango kidd

          12 million homes are still “underwater”under current conditions. That means the mortgage amount owed is higher than the value of the property.

          Just saying.

        • jojo

          I am a Realtor. What you are illustrating is true. The market is literally being set up for the next mortgage mess, and we are no where out of the present one. Another program out there is the USDA loan program. Loans now being made with ZERO down payment, get the seller to pay all the buyers closing costs. Stick built homes only…. no manufactured (unless it is a land package deal). In a lot of areas, with an average interest rate of 3.5%, most borrowers can get into a home and a mortgage payment is less than the going rent rate. A home purchase with no financial “skin in the game” often ends up as a foreclosure. No real hard money lost due to no original cash out of pocket. The real irony is the 20% down buyer is going through underwriting requirements beyond belief.

    3. Awoken

      Here’s a question for you more serious preppers? When shtf and the grid goes down and we have economic collapse and no one is working anymore, what’s going to happen to the nuclear power plants. I was thinking about it the othe day that we are surrounded by like 100 nuclear power plants here on the east coast and if no one is working/ the grid is down and you can’t keep the reactors cool, it can potentially creat multiple Chernobyl like disasters that would make most of the land unusable. It was something that I kinda just thought about and haven’t heard or seen anyone talk about and since I’m new at prepping and probably much younger you guys might have some input.

      • PO'd Patriot

        It has been discussed on here from time to time. The inplications of an EMP and the effect it will have on the upwards of 100 nuke power plants here is not so good.
        After about 30 days the fuel will possibly run out for the backup generators that run the pumps to cool the rods. After they shut down and the rods heat up and spew radiation we won’t need any lights. We’ll all be glowing bright enough to see just fine in the dark.

        • PO'd Patriot

          BTW, the same I’m sure will apply to a total economic collapse unless the military takes them over.

      • Anonymous

        There will always be ” high priority” actions that will be taken, so as to ensure survival. Keeping nuclear reactors running, or conversely, doing a controlled shutown, ranks pretty high so that tens of millions, including gvt. officials, avoid radiation poisoning!

      • Wolf359

        It would irradiate the whole northern half of the planet atleast. I’ve thought about a scenario like that where a foreign invasion would have to as a top priority secure all nuc plants from melt down or else there would be nothing to gain by an invasion.

        Since fukashima I’ve done a complete 180 on nuc power. Its just too risky and the downside is apocalyptic.

        War is coming, make no mistake about it. And we will be facing off against china and russia from a disadvantaged position of power. Worse yet is america doesnt have the stomach for a costly and deadly conflict. People will be begging for a return to normalcy and will go along with anything to get it.

        • JM Denver

          Check out “Thorium Reactor” on your favorite search engine.

          What I got was that it is basically a clean nuclear reactor that does not generate enriched fission bomb materials. The US nuclear program chose not to research or develop them, since our reactors were built during the cold war when everyone was trying to make as much enriched plutonium and uranium as possible.

        • REB

          …whether or not they have a stomach for it will be irrelivent IF the conflict is actually here on our ground…the tough will get going and the weak will die en masse…if Washingtons vision is correct we have to figure on a fight for our existence….if not we still are going to show those bassturds what it means to mess with real Americans…rebs and yanks!

      • Paranoid

        The Nuke plants will stay up. If for no other reason than they supply power to the wife of the plant engineer. No way in hell is she going to to tolerate no power.

When we cannot import oil because our money is no good those plants will be worth far more than now. Every worker will be drafted and the plants will run.

        • Sierra Dave

          We’ll be unlucky enough to have COG powered by all the Nuke plants. If not for their own self interest. They’ll be there with guns at their heads to keep the power going for the Corruptiticians.

        Oh I’ve talked about it.

        You will never, and I mean NEVER, have a nuclear war for this very reason. I mean, if they got a direct hit on the plant as a groundburst, you *might* be ok as the stuff is vaporized. But, a near miss?

        Containment cracks, cooling goes offline, guess what? Everyone’s a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle. Worldwide.

        You have radioactive “hostages”. Anyone with 1/100th of an active brain cell is not going to “set off the doomsday device” (aka full scale nuclear war against a country with 300 fission reactors).

        Methinks this may be why Iran wants them so bad…

        If it’s an economic collapse scenario, I WOULD SINCERELY HOPE that the people in charge have enough brains to either allocate massive amounts of dedicated resources to running those things, or else shut them down in a controlled fashion.

        I would sincerely hope.

      • Crat

        My previous reply didn’t show-your scenario would be one of those ” critical” items that would get priority attention. Tens of millions, including top gvt. officials would be seriously and physically affected. The plants would either be kept running, or a contolled shutdown would be initiated.

        • Wolf359

          Crat,

          Even with a controlled shutdown a continuous flow of heavy water would need to be up and running to cool the spent fuel rods in storage tanks. Thats the real danger just like fukushima right now. Once exposed to air meltdown will occur.

      • lightknight

        Unfortunately nuclear power plants not only require people to make them work they also require materials that may or may not be available. If war breaks out a nuclear power plant is in itself an effective bomb just needing a detonator. The entire northern hemisphere if not the world will become a wasteland. Why do you think George Soros and his buddies are hiding out in Brazil?

        • Theguy

          No see. A BOMB produces LIMITED fallout. You could get away with that. I mean we been blowing them up over and voer in above ground tests from 1945- I’m not sure when but post 1960 something.

          We blew up LOTS of those.

          A fission plant? Whole different story there.

      • Kevin2

        There are two methods. One is operate the in house back up steam turbine(s) to power the cooling pumps as the core temperature decays. The second is to run diesel powered generators to power the coolant pumps.

      • lastmanstanding

        Maybe they will run for a little while…It will be every man/woman for themself in these areas.

        Believe what others say if you like…ultimately it is your ass that must keep your family safe.

      • Really?

        The power plants leak daily as a normal way of operation.
        They go down for minor events all the time. leaking pipes, electrical fires. They have backup generators – Generators to run a nuclear power plant! Those generators rely on fossil fuel and trucks and pipes that do not get tore up in Hurricanes, tornados, floods and earth quakes.
        When they go down, it is game over for the next generation and those in the area.
        Please do not kid yourself into beliveing that this planet can take multiple failures at nuclear weapons/power plants and keep on ticking as usual.

      • Grasshopper

        I don’t know, Awoken, but a few years ago, when there was major drought in the area around Georgia, and about 3 states were all fighting over the last few drops of water in surrounding rivers, they had to close down the nuclear plants because there wasn’t enough water to keep them running… I’m not sure of all the detail.

      • Nargonstalator

        It might surprise you to find out that the folks at our nrc are a bit more savvy than their eastern-block counter parts. Our e-scram capacity is still the benchmark for nuke power although the French are nothing to scoff at in this area. I doubt a “faded-giant” is on our horizon.

      • Kettle Moraine

        East coast is toast if the plants can’t get diesel before the gens run out. Or a lot less time if they don’t start after cme. It probably won’t be the plants themselves that blow. It will be the used fuel dumps that are the problem. They will overheat in 1 to 2 weeks and anything downwind will be covered with fallout. It won’t be a big nuclear blast, just enough to get it into the atmosphere and the winds will carry it.

        Everyone should have a radiation detector. If this happens, stay inside for a few weeks, then check the radiation. The heaviest radiation will drop out quickly, but after that you will need to clean the dust off everything, and scrape off the surface of the ground before anything can be grown. This includes any pasture that animals will be in.

        I believe it is survivable, but most will not be prepared. Iodine tablets and a radiation detector would help a million fold.

        • slingshot

          In a radio active contamination event,
          the detector, in most cases, will just tell you how fast you are going to die. The best thing to do to “GET OUT”. Look on the net to find the procedures if you have to BUG IN.
          Get to Know your Gamma, Alfa, Beta and X -rays. The sheilding needed for protection which includes over your head. Iodine is some serious buisness and can kill. Some are alergic to it and you better have the RIGHT IODINE.

          Do Not turn on your heating or air condition!

          Really. How many of you will be able to tell if you had a lethal dose or radioactivity? How long was your exposure? How far away from the event?

          • sixpack

            There’s plenty of good literature out there for this, but some common sense goes a long way.

            First, if you’ve had a “lethal” dose of radiation, All questions become rather moot—because you’re either dead or too sick to care.

            How long you were exposed is rather useless information too, as you won’t have much chance of customizing any treatment/doses you may have, in your basement or root cellar. You can only guess and do your best with what you have.

            As far as how far you are from the event, if you’re too close it won’t matter for much longer, and if you MIGHT be at a safe distance, the guidelines say to treat anyway, just in case you’re wrong. It will ultimately be up to your own judgment.

            I’m afraid knowing the intimate details and calculations won’t count for much in that SHTF situation, since most of us won’t be living in a laboratory with all the knowledge needed to put those calculations to any use.

            You’ll have to guess and go with your gut for the most part, tempered by common sense, tinged with caution.

            I’d rather spend my time worrying about having the best preps at my disposal that I can, and the knowledge to use them, rather than convincing myself that I’m screwed anyway.

            • slingshot

              Good one Sixpack.

      • JustMe

        Nuke plants require LOTS of maintainence, and LOTS of repair parts. To keep a nuke plant going, you need to have significant manufacturing capabilities, and raw materials to work with.

        In short, nuke plants, as much as anything, and/or anyone, rely heavily on everything, including the “just-in-time” delivery apperatus to continue to function. No parts, no maintainence, equals eventual meltdown.

      • Former Cal Girl

        We will be “bugging in” at our 140 acre family farm with our small family (elderly parents, one son and daughter in law and two grandchildren). Our community is 75 miles from nearest city and 10 miles from small local town. We suspect many of our neighbors are prepping too but we do not discuss. Like most rural areas in the South people here “prep” as a way of life. Women can and men hunt deer, turkey, rabbits, squirrels, etc. most have chickens and many have cattle too. We all share ffruits of our gardens and orchards in the summer. All our neighbors have guns. Since most farmms in our valley are family farms we all know one another and we have no doubt will work together when the time comes. For now we keep quiet and look out for one another and go about our ddaily lives. My husband and I moved back here 4 years ago when we realized California was not the place to be. We rarely travel more than 3 to 4 hours from home anymore(use to travel the world)and woould not want to be in a city area with lots of people no matter how capable they are. Set up for power struggles and threats. A few rural folks with skills are a much better way to go….in our opinion. Good luck.

      Simple put it is all a numbers mirage. Just like what appears to be water on a hot day, when you look closer it disappears and nothing is there. This is what is happening with the joke that is the stock market, it is a mirage and those that look to find a drink in it will end up very disappointed in the long term for sure and maybe make a tiny amount of money now. Precious metals offer stability and when you have them in your hands you can purchase what you need until everything falls apart completely. Then barter items are king for personal commerce.

        My question is who is going to end up holding the Bag? Bag full of FRN’s. We have been trying to use them before they before they are useless.

        • Gods Creation

          Actually, the FRNs amount to only a very small percentage of all “dollar” denominated paper. Cash money green paper will be used long after the rest of the derivative digits evaporate. They represent the only PHYSICALLY EXISTING CLAIM against the corp.

          People will take them out of habit and an inborn desire to obtain them that has been instilled in them from birth. They are just as worthless now as they will be after the collapse. It’s just that people will begin to understand what they are taking and will eventually quit doing so.

          Businesses will take them until they are registered under some other sovereignty.

          The banksters are hoping it is them. The People are STRONGLY against it.

          It will be fun to watch from a safe distance, far away from any city or town.

          • Shootit

            Why would the banksters want to end up with worthless paper?

            It will be interesting to watch!

            • Say When

              The banksters are using the worthless pieces of green FRN’s to buy gold and silver by the ton. Does anyone really believe that the Fed Res is really printing real money. Think about it for a second. If you or I could print all the worthless dollar notes we wanted, would we stockpile them or use them to purchase tangible assets.
              I do believe I for one would buy everything that had value until everyone figured out that the bills were actually worthless, then I would hide in my bunker when the SHTF. Maybe that new bunker under the West Wing?

            • JustMe

            First food will cost twice as much, then four times as much. Soon you will need a wheelbarrow full of money to buy bread.

            Better to invest in the means to grow your own food, and land to do it on.

            You do not want to be helpless in a population center during a currency collapse. Even if you have the money, chances are the infrastructure would go down in no time, leaving empty shelves and desperate citizens.

            This is their plan, and they have done it countless times before:

            1. Grab all the Gold, ideally at below market value.
            2. Get everyone else to invest in paper assets.
            3. Keep inflating the Ponzi scheme until it collapses.
            4. Step back in with Gold and buy up everything in sight for a fraction of its prior value.
            5. Start the whole process again.

          • Heretic Historian

            I agree GC… a few months ago I started adding FRN’s to my preps, maybe 6 months supply (who knows with hyper inflation or even possible deflation). After that, I got right back to converting the rest to PM’s and other physical items for survival. But you’re probably right; from the first bank holiday to the introduction of the global electronic chip currency could be a year or more. There will be plenty of people taking FRN’s out of habit and it will become apparent quickly just how few there are in supply.

      Let’s talk logistical plans for a moment. Assuming things go the full Mad Max (this is slightly tongue-in-cheek). How many people are others hoping to form as part of their defense group/survival colony. I have 2 survival locations cjoices: one in a very rural small town on 45 acres of land in a pinewood forest region and likely only a group of 10-15 people and the other in another small town only 75 miles from a major city but with a more skillfull group with a higher diversity of skills. Anyone care to share their plan? OPSEC assumed of course.

      • slingshot

        I have a few partners.

        • MadMarkie

          I have been cautiously networking for years now. It really doesn’t hurt not to drink and be available to tend bar and the ‘smoker’ at local PD functions; son is an officer. Some are admittedly assholes, while most are pretty regular folks doing a job most others don’t want. There are some interesting contacts with FD, paramedics and County Sheriff’s Officers who show up as guests at these parties.

          Through our RN daughter I have met two ER Dr.s, 1 trauma surgeon, other RNs and numerous EMTs. A little cautious exploration with my dentist revealed a very scared man who really didn’t know where to turn to for some serious advice on how to get started becoming better prepared. I was able to tune him in to a few informational resources to get him headed in the ‘right’ direction and answer a few of his questions. The other day he showed me his seriously quiet little generator and a really neat little air compressor that he said could easily power all of his drills and such. I will probably have a job for him and his oral surgeon wife there in ‘Barter-Town’.

          We all meet numerous interesting people in our day-to-day lives and many folks have hobbies and skill sets that might be of serious use after an economic crash or in an other SHTF scenario. Look beneath the surface and you may just be surprised at what you find. It costs nothing but a little time to cultivate a resource that you may seriously require at a later date.

          I would much prefer to be associated with the local SWAT Team rather than the local Bass Club when things head South; it probably wouldn’t really hurt to know them both though.

          God Bless and good luck.

        Well my plan is based on the plan of God for my life, which I will watch unfold as we go through this. I am bugging in with aging parents who won’t be able to bug out. Suburban hilltop, defensible but not ideal, but it’s what we have to work with. Laying in supplies for us and the likely additions we will receive. We don’t have any younguns to defend or survive for and are prepared to hold the pass so others can survive, if that is how things pan out. None of us die until God punches our ticket. I just want to live with bravery and courage and integrity until I am called home.

        We have two choices. One is our current location in the country on 6 acres. It is located in the middle of fly over country 70 miles from a major city.

        The key to making this work is our good neighbors, friends, and family that form a great rural community. Time will tell who is with us.

      well, japan has been living this fantasy for 20 years; so the US could easily go another 5.

      luckily, europe can not go another 5 years. the eurozone is most likely to break apart in late summer as germany has elections then. the people could end the eurozone right there and thats when relaity hits imo, which would be good for the US; the sooner reality comes the better.

      i’m not prediciting a collapse for the US. i think the eurozone breaks apart before 2014 and that sends even more of those darned tea party types to DC in an effort to keep what the people see as daily news of a depression in europe from coming to the US.

I’ve always found it hilarious how the IRS is a 501c3 and so are 98% of the churches.

    10. Be informed

      There are many people that visit this site from California and the quake activity is really getting going out there. Today there was many earthquakes surrounding the San Jacinto fault, and many microquakes spreading out to other faults. This either means that the San Jacinto is gearing up for a 6.8-7.5 or the San Andreas is sending a lot of energy towards the San Jacinto. You can see much activity on the San Jacinto towards the Riverside area also.

      I have a link everyone can see the faults overlaid earthquake in the past hour, day and week. right here: http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqscanv/

      Click on a section of the map you want and it will zoom in and then you can scroll over a fault and see the name of it. If you go over the recent moderate earthquakes that were 5 pointers and then purposely downgraded by the atypical goverment so everyone is not too scared to high 4’s, you can see that there were on the San Jacinto.

      Also you can notice all the microquakes that are all over the place on other faults. This happens with large earthquakes, but seldom with earthquakes that are 5 pointers. However before a big event this spreading out of microquakes occurs often. Something to keep an eye on very closely.

      Will an EMP affect my solar panels, charge controller, or batteries?

      • JustMe

        Panels no, Charge controller yes, batteries most likely not.

        In the last topic, you said there would’nt be any EMP….

        • Eisenkreuz

          There won’t be but thats why we’re preppers.

        • jerrytbg

          If the panels have blocking and/or bypass diodes they will be affected…some will be repairable, others not due to design. Controllers…absolutely…spares are necessary…
          batteries…agreed it’s a tough call, surge level etc…if they go off don’t be near them…

          oh, and btw @ all…sorry for losing it last eve…
          just pissed me off…

      • Paranoid

        Depending on how intense, EMP can melt any conductor it finds, you have a lot of tiny wires in any solar installation and transformers are worse. Stand alone systems should do better than, hooked to grid. Remember an EMP pulse is fairly similar to a lightning strike on a power line. If you are on grid, If your Solar is properly isolated you had best isolate your house.

        • JustMe

          Good points. The 1800’s solar flare did fry telegraph lines. If your solar panels are operating when an EMP occurs, then they might fry.

      • Red Leader

        I have read that EMP will fry the blocking diode in solar panels. This diode prevents power from flowing backwards from the batteries to the panels at night.

        You could shut off the breakers at the combiner box to prevent that. The blocking diodes are just a few dollars each so you could have some on hand to replace. They are located in the junction box and you would need a micro torch and heat sinks if you do not have power for a soldering iron.

        • JRS

          I have grid tie (home made) but also set up for when the grid dies. I have a surge suppressor inline with grid tie. Would this prevent EMP damage from the power lines?

          • jerrytbg

            Again, it depends upon surge level…ie…how close you are to the source of the pulse and how fast SP works.
            The protector might be good for lightning strikes but…

          • HisArmsWide

            Not all surge suppressors are created equal. You very much get what you pay for and research on.

            It will not stop EMP damage that might be caused by the EMP interacting with the wiring in your house. A surge suppressor blocks energy passing through it at that single point. It’s designed to fail the circuit when enough energy hits it. The question is the speed at which it fails the circuit. If it’s too slow then energy gets through.

            An EMP creates energy in wire runs, the longer the run the more energy that is created. Those hundreds of feet of wiring in your walls is sitting there waiting to generate that energy.

            The length of the wires in the telegraph are why the carrington event created fires. It was able to generate enough energy which due to resistance generated heat which had the obvious result.

            Based on my research, a repeat of that event in modern days would very likely see a lot of buildings burning up from the inside out. It’s hard to put out a house fire when it’s all inside the walls.

              “Not all surge suppressors are created equal. You very much get what you pay for and research on.”

              Totally agree…

              “It will not stop EMP damage that might be caused by the EMP interacting with the wiring in your house. A surge suppressor blocks energy passing through it at that single point. It’s designed to fail the circuit when enough energy hits it. The question is the speed at which it fails the circuit. If it’s too slow then energy gets through.”

              Agreed…to a point…
              But it will open the circuit… usually, localizing the damage…unless it’s fried in the closed position…scary

              “An EMP creates energy in wire runs, the longer the run the more energy that is created. Those hundreds of feet of wiring in your walls is sitting there waiting to generate that energy.”

              Only if there is “NO” circuit protection…

              “The length of the wires in the telegraph are why the Carrington event created fires.”

              Because there was no circuit protection built into the system…How would they have known…
              NOW…we know and that is what “Harding” is about…

              ” It was able to generate enough energy which due to resistance generated heat which had the obvious result.”

              Again…because there was no protection built into the system…

              “Based on my research, a repeat of that event in modern days would very likely see a lot of buildings burning up from the inside out. It’s hard to put out a house fire when it’s all inside the walls.”

              Generally speaking yes…but it would require those circuit breakers frying in the closed position…
              some will…some won’t…some will explode…

              Bottom line…we are both in agreement…
              It’s going to be a nightmare come true…

        Depends on the range you want. I go by how fast the arrow travels. FPS. I like it above 300fps. For this type expect start 250.00 and up.
        Although, some of the 250-280fps. are good. These are cheaper. Pick a name brand and made in the USA. One with cams. Good company to start with Horton,Barnett. E-bay, has a wide selection. Good Luck

      • Paranoid

        Unsure what you mean. True .357 Revolver is a rimmed round, normally not a good candidate for Semi auto. Both 9MM and .380 are really .357. 9MM is the NATO round for Semi’s; if you use the approved slug I don’t care for it. Nor does the USMC, they have just ordered 17,000 What they claim are not 1911 Colt .45s. But except for being brown; THEY SURE LOOK LIKE IT! On the other hand the 9 MM with a jacketed hollow point is a fine gun. I like the old Browning, lots of people like the SIG.

        Stick to common caliber who ever it is thats use this name today.

      • my.02

        No pistol is accurate, it is the shooter rather than the pistol. That being said, the 357 mag is a bit of a rare bird taking a necked version of the standard cartridge. If you have never owned a handgun start with a .22 as the price of ammo (if you can find it) allows for cheaper lead down range. Pistols take a lot of practice to get anywhere close to being good enough with one to actually use in a self defense situation considering the moment of truth is going to be an adrenalin rush more intense than anything ever experienced in you life. First defense weapon is a shotgun and then go from there. If/When tshtf, take a double barrel and saw off for concealment, as who cares about laws when there is none.

      It would be helpful for those of us with HAM capabilities to come up with a SHTF band plan.

      Preferably a HF for national news and a VHF for your local area.

      I used to think this was just going to be an economic depression but looking at the government’s preps I am suspicious that something much more sinister may lie beneath.

      • Facebook Page

        Not if you are included in it. You would not be worth the effort.

      • Horse'sass

        Having independent ham radio capability IMHO has been overlooked by preppers. TPTB can easily censor the MSM, cell phones, and the internet if the need arose.

        Problem is, it would be child’s play to radio direction find (RDF) any transmission of any duration, especially if a fixed base, thus making getting any reliable, trustworthy info difficult on a regular basis. It would be cat and mouse. One would have to, at least as I see it in my early stages of understanding, be nimble and quick with scanning communications, identifying which ones were useful or even trustworthy, and then be able to transmit back, pack up and leave.

        High Frequency (HF) allows wide trans- continental, even world wide communication via ionosphere propagation while line of sight via Very High Frequency (VHF) is used for shorter local ranges. It might be easier to RDF the VHFs because they are line of sight with less scatter/skip.

        Have been working on my Ham radio based entirely on portable capability with a
        200 watt power transmitter powered by one of the newer lithium ferrous phosphate batteries with portable solar panels for recharging and suitable portable antenna with autotuner etc.

        As a side note, I would be interested in any literature about how the resistance managed to operate their radio communications during WWII, or in any subsequent conflict where Ham radio was utilized. Any suggestions?

        • Eisenkreuz

          I know an expert..I’ll check…

        • Eisenkreuz

          Horse’sass:

          From an expert:

          “I have a good reference book, Time Life World War II Series, The Resistence, that might be available at your friend’s local library.

          The resistence had been sent, by air drop, short wave transceivers such as Type 3 Mark II and Type A Mark III disguised as wine jugs, brief cases etc. The messages, sent in code, had to be very short as the Germans did have radio direction finding trucks. Also, to cut down on radio transmissions, the British Broadcasting Corporation’s, BBC’s, French-language service, send out messages every evening with their high power transmitters. These messages could be listened to on a home radio. But I understand the Germans forbid people in occupied countries from listening to the BBC. Some examples were meaningless (Flora had a red neck), some sounded like personal greetings (Jean sends a kiss to Nicole) but others had great significance to the resistence. For example, “wounds my heart with monotonous langour” was a call to action meaning the D-Day landings in France were imminent. If you’ve ever watched the movie, The Longest Day, this is part of the movie. Other messages told the resistence to expect an air drop of arms etc.”

      Could some of you lovely and talented prepper women share your sources of information on how to get started canning and dehydrating?

        The Ball canning handbook has more data than about anywhere, The Tattler lids work, they are reusable. Advertise on Survival blog a lot.The older Ball books are better, the lawyers got to them like everyone. Old book called “Putting Foods By” has a lot if you can find it . Start with Tomatoes they are the easy est. Relish also easy. Meat takes a little practice, let cool slowly.

        @Eisen….I’m a male, but I will answer anyway. For canning you need some cans. And for dehydrating, you need to purchase a dehydrator. Hope that helps.

        Go to Daisy’s website – The Organic Prepper. She has a lot of information about canning and dehydrating.

      I’m past being concerned. I wrote a paper on this in graduate school in the 1990s. I got out of debt. I built a wood-heated, solar-powered cabin a mountain community. I filled it with enough provisions to last a few years then bought Silver Eagles in case we need to relocate or buy more.

      In college I worked in the accounting department for a multi-level marketing company. The rep for the company that tracked our representatives told me even legal pyramid schemes eventually collapse so lets not feign surprise when we hear this one will too.

      Stop paying for rent and utilities and all that other stuff you don’t need and reallocate those funds to getting prepared. This can be as easy as moving in with someone who does not prepare in exchange for preparing for them. You’re not a sponge if your lack of contribution now produces future benefits for them.

      Not to much surprises me in the news anymore. In fact I am numb. I’m preped out. Does it matter who wins Congress? They only kick the can down the road. Does it matter how much money they print? Everyone seems to fine with that. The wars only change location as we will move from the Middle East to Africa. More assualts on our Gun Rights. Never Ends.
      On the day this all goes down the one thing for sure I will do is, “TURN OFF MY PHONE”.

    27. Angelo Mysteriouso

      I tried to post a reply to prior article and all I got was an 404-error. SO…I am posting it at This article to clear up the massive confusion in last article prior to this one.

      DNA! RECENT Dec 2012 DNA Evidence which Proves and should clear up all confusions.

      The newest DNA science finding is from Dr. Eran Elhaik (“a Jew”) and associates at the McKusick-Nathans Institute of Genetic Medicine, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. In research accepted December 5, 2012 and published by the Oxford University Press on behalf of the Society of Molecular Biology and Evolution, it was found that the “Khazarian Hypothesis” is scientifically correct. (angelo is correct)

      What exactly is the “Khazarian Hypothesis?” Simply stated, it holds that the Jewry genome is a mosaic of ancestries which rise primarily out of the Khazars.

      Jews are Khazars, not Israelites.

      The “Jews” of America, Europe, and Israel are descendants not of Father Abraham but of King Bulan and the people of ancient Khazaria. Khazaria was an amalgam of Turkic clans who once lived in the Caucasus (Southern Russia) in the early centuries CE. These Turkic peoples were pagans who converted to Judaism in the eighth century. As converts, they called themselves “Jews,” but none of their blood comes from Israel.

      Later, the “Jews” (Khazars) emigrated, settling in Russia, Hungary, Poland, Germany, and elsewhere in Europe. As “Jews,” the Khazars then left the European nations in 1948 and settled the fledgling, new nation of Israel.

      The people of Israel are not the seed, nor the ancestors, of Abraham. They call themselves “Jews,” but in fact, DNA science shows them to be Khazars. They say they are “Jew,” but they are not.

      “There are no blood or family connections among the Jews,” said Dr. Elhaik in an interview with Haaretz, Israel’s daily newspaper. “The various groups of Jews in the world today do not share a common genetic origin. Their genome is largely Khazar.”

      Thus, when Prime Minister Netanyahu says, “God gave this land to our Israelite forefathers,” he is absolutely wrong. There are no Israelite forefathers of today’s “Jews.” When today’s “Jews” say they should possess the land because they are Israelites and are the seed of Abraham, they are mistaken.

      The “Jews” are in Israel for one reason and one reason only: Because the United States, in 1948, recognized the nation of “Israel” and has since funded and protected it. God’s Word has nothing to do with it.

      God’s Word, the Holy Bible, prophesied that in the last days imposters would erroneously and falsely claim to be “Jews.” These imposters would, the Bible told us, persecute their enemies and especially the Christians. But God would have his revenge:

      “Behold, I will make them of the Synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; Behold I will make them to come and worship at thy feet and know that I have loved thee.” (Revelation 3:9)

      Do the “Jews” (Khazars) not do exactly as our God prophesied? Do they not persecute the Palestinians and defile the land, claiming they are its original inhabitants? This, even though their proven ancestors, the Khazars, never set foot in the Middle East and are not the seed of Abraham?

      My thanks to Dr. Eran Elhaik of Johns Hopkins University and to his associates. You have performed a valuable service with your DNA research, both to Christianity and to world understanding. Elhaik’s research confirms earlier DNA studies, especially the work of Dr. Ariella Oppenheim of Hebrew University, who likewise found, in 2001, that the “Jews” came from the Khazars rather than the Israelites. Dr. Oppenheim even found that some of the Palestinians have the chromosomes proving they are “Cohen,” related to the ancient Israelites who worked in the Synagogue and Temple (catch that? Heberw univ. zero antisemitics there eh)

      The MAIN Question for Christians:

      I ask my evangelical Christian friends: What will you do now? Will you heed what God said, in Revelation 2 and 3, about “them which say they are Jews and are not?” Will you accept modern DNA science as legitimate and valuable in proving the truth of God’s Word?

      Or will you, dear Christian friend, walk right on by, dismissing what both God and science have informed you?

      God said that the seed of Abraham would inherit the land. Therefore, we must—absolutely must—in light of the DNA evidence, ask ourselves: Where, and who are the seed of Abraham?

      We know that Netanyahu and the people who now inhabit Israel have no claim to the land. They are interlopers, false pretenders. But there is a true and legitimate Chosen People of God. In fact, the scriptures had it right all along. The answer is found in Galatians 3:29. Read it for yourself:

      “And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed and heirs according to the promise.”

      So, if you belong to Jesus our Lord, you are “Abraham’s seed,” regardless of your physical race. You are overcomers, and Revelation 21:7 promises, “He that overcometh shall inherit all things.” This is the great secret that every true Christian knows.

      God is not a racist. The Great Commission extends to every race and ethnicity. We who love Jesus are His Chosen People, and we have the promise first given to Abraham way back in Genesis.

      DISCLAIMER:…I am Only Relaying this info, written BY a Top Jewsih Scientist-Published and Approved by John Hopkins University-With Articles of his info from Harretz, a Jewsih Daily Newspaper in Isreal.

      Therefore before any here act childish and call me an antisemitic, Think first. Are John Hopkins and Harettz also such antisemitics?(No).

      If You hear musicians playing a Motzart music concert, and you Hate motzarts style of music…Do You shout vile names out at the Musians who are smply Playing what Motzart wrote? No of course you do not!

      Everybody has a right to choose what to like or believe. But if “Certain” info clashes with Your prior beliefs or ideas, and Now a person posts New info that 100% proves as in DNA=Proof solid…To call the provider person of such info vile names is asinine, and usually denotes that those folks who are first to cry out, and whine loudest with lables such as antisemite/racist are indeed upset and perhaps it is due to, They got something to “Hide” and wish for zero such proof to surface.

      Far as I am concerned all those newer posters the other day, as well as regulars here if you call me such names, for Providing Proof to those who are wrong or mistaken of what they claim or beleve regarding these issues etc.

      Then you MUST also call the jewish scientist and, Harretz newspaper, and John Hopkins univ. the same names of antisemitie since They are where I got my Info From.

      If this info harms anyones self esteem, or “feelings” Oh Well…perhaps time to Grow Thicker Skin eh.

      To Read article or view nice Photos of actual Jewish Scientist guy, and photo of 800 ad Khazers Palace:

      In 2008, Russian archaeologist Dmitry Vasilyev unearthed Itil, the long lost capital of the Kingdom of Khazaria. New DNA science proves that today’s “Jews” come from Khazaria and are not the seed of Abraham.

      ps unlike what some think, there is No difference in use of words of jews or zionists since 99% of jewsih folks are also zionist. Like All 7.5 Million in isreal are jews and zios Both. Same for the other nearly 1/2 of their folks in america are too. Those who think otherwise I can also provide tons of Proof and several links. But you can likly do your own homework at this point.

Can you please keep us posted about DNA and continue to track the origins of all races? I don’t know why anyone would give a rat’s ass. In fact I can’t figure out why anyone would.

      • Jim(another Jim)

        What a bunch of garbage. Who cares is right. Anyone that comes to God is a child of God, plain and simple. This DNA junk about jews not being of Abraham is not relevant. All I know is God has forgiven me of my sins and I love Him for it. I cant wait for the day that He calls me home. Until then, I will try to be a good servant.

      • RICO

        what ever!

      • Archivist

        Guess what? You are wrong! Being a Jew comes through the mother. Northern Europe is one of the areas that the “lost tribes” went to. Evidently Jewish women married locals, so that their descendants, still being Jews because of their maternal ancestry, have Khazar yDNA and probably a good percentage of autosomal DNA.

        By the way, we are all descendants of Abraham one way or the other. Scientists have said that each person alive today is at least as close as 50th cousin to everyone else alive in the world.

        Think about that, cuz.

      • Piper Michael

        OMFG!
        Angelo… and you have the nerve to tell me I’m WRONG?
        You have the nerve to tell me I’m ‘cherry picking’ scriptures? You, a preacher, and probably seminary trained? You guys, who create whole denominations out of one verse in scriptures? You who fight and argue ‘jots and tittles’ FOREVER? You who create divisions
        Now, you bring forth this Anti-Jewish tripe?
        How in the hell does your logic work? Abraham had multi-ethnic sons? What? There were only two sons dude, Isaac and Ishmael.
        The Chosen are not multi ethnic, they are the white race, chosen for their spiritual gifts in the DNA, yes, but that doesn’t extend to everybody. Each ethnicity has different gifts, this doesn’t make them better or worse. Its called Earth, air, fire and water.

        You say you love the scripture, but you have a hard time reading it I see. You attribute all this to some self loathing jewish professor, and use it as justification for your own jew hating or self loathing agenda.

        Yet, again, you say I’m WRONG? You never get to say that again. You are so full of it, my monitor is leaking e coli bacteria. From my previous readings of your posts, you also hate catholics. But refuse to acknowledge that the Roman Catholic church WROTE THE BIBLE, some of it, out of thin air. Yet you claim to worship that book? You sir, are a walking or is typing, oxymoron.

        Jeez.

            Piper,

            I LOVE you tearing A.M. a much needed new evacuation orafice but I can’t give you a thumbs up because you said the Catholic church fabricated the Bible – the Bible was completed before the Catholic church existed.

            I sure hope A.M. is not a member (much less any type of paster, gasp!) of any Christian denomonation because he is not expressing ANY kind of Christian doctrine.

            For the record I am an energetic supporter of Israel and the Jews.

            Satan hates Jews.

            Pick your team.

            (I didn’t give you a red thumb either :D). Everything else you said was spot on!

            • Piper Michael

              NO it did not.
              It was fragmented. It was a book in the hand of different groups or churches… the ancient works were scattered everywhere.

              The Roman Catholic church brought it all together in The CANON, which means the ‘authorized works’. THEY WROTE the Bible as it exists today, and, destroyed much of the Gnostic works. Remember the ‘heretics’?

              I would suggest you read some history of the Councils and Synods. They were under ORDERS from the Emperor Constantine to build HIM a Church for HIS ‘New God’.

              (Also, the recent TV commercial of the Roman Catholic church which states plainly;
              “we wrote the Bible”….)

              There is so much misinformation out there. It is a subject I have studied. But I don’t want to get in it here.
              I am just tired of AM telling me *I* am WRONG, when he is full of seminary trained crap.

              • Heretic Historian

                Also look into the Essene Christians, the Nazarite Christians and the Ebonite Christians. These were some of the first people taken out by the RCC (in the millions), not the Muslims as we’ve been told in the Crusades fairy tale.

                • Piper Michael

                  Exactly right.
                  Any church that was of the school of Gnosis was destroyed…
                  It is funny, that the dead sea scrolls, the bruce codex, the Nag Hammadi and other documents, including the recent papyrus fragment that talked about mary magdalene as Christs wife, were preserved by some hand of providence, for our time…
                  To me, this is the Revelation of John, that, the Mystery of God is finished…that the age of churches will fall on the altar of knowledge. A spiritual evolution of knowledge that conquers the evil doctrines of mystery.

              • Not so Much

                How do you get
                “The Roman Catholic church brought it all together” as equal to “THEY WROTE the Bible”

                Them two ain’t equal.

                • Piper Michael

                  Not so much.
                  The brought the many different ‘books’ together. Then, they edited, changed, rewrote, and mangled and mutilated what was, to be what they wanted it to be… which was their new narrative in The Canon.
                  Before the Catholic church, there were two ‘schools’ of thought. The Gnostic and the Orthodox. The school of Knowledge and the School of MYSTERY.

                  They destroyed the school of knowledge and murdered them, by calling them Heretic.

                  Joan of Arc, was a ‘heretic’, because she heard voices. There was no way to defend yourself from these bastards. They burned the Library of Alexandria because it was a ‘pagan temple full of sorcerers and witchcraft’. They murder whole towns of saints, and the phrase came about “Kill them all, God will know his own”.

                  They are the Mother of Harlots, named MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT. But, the mother, had daughters… and those people think they are ‘better’ than the Catholics… being deceived, that the Catholic wrote the very Bible that King James translated from latin into english…
                  The protestants don’t understand, they are ‘protesting’ Catholics…and use the SAME BOOK, with minor ADDITIONAL edits.

                  Read the Gnosis, and discover the Knowledge that was destroyed. That the Revelation of John, was a message to the Churches, for their BLASPHEMY…a blasphemy of what? A corrupted and divided Word. It is the book itself that divides God’s people into denominations and sects, as they ‘interpret’ it differently. The conflicts between the doctrines just caused a problem in my family…this last weekend… why?

                  Because my Son in law, believed that our Daughter should marry a man who has been married before… they are stuck in The Law of Moses… and there is no talking to them, so we don’t. This is not GOD doing this, this is the heresy of Men, this is the Darkness that “crept in unawares” from the VERY BEGINNING!

                  This may be the single greatest weakness of the human race Piper. TPTB know exactly what our soft spots are and they been pushing those buttons for thousands of years. We love to be led and ruled. We give authority where there is none; we know nothing of the origins of our beliefs. You will find 1000 times more intuition in a goldfinch. When I see all of these red thumbs on this subject, it’s plain to see that either TPTB are freakin brilliant, or we are freakin pathetic. We would protect a turd if they told us it was important.

                  Reminds of the line from Pink Floyd’s Welcome to Machine… “What did you dream? It’s alright, we told you what to dream.” or “What did you think? It’s alright, we told you what to think.”

                  Ah, HH,
                  with all the red thumbs its obvious, they value their illusion more than reality.
                  Too many know absolutely nothing about their own religion, and think Christ will give them their free lunch salvation. He said it didn’t work like that, but their pharisees have turned everything upside down, and they would rather believe fairy tales and mystery.
                  We love them anyway…

            • Piper Michael

              PS:
              I didn’t say they fabricated it. They ‘constructed’ it over many many years, while they threw out many many other wonderful works in order to create their new canonical narrative for the ‘peasant masses’. They even trashed the ‘private teachings’ of Jesus, and the works of Enoch, which is my personal grudge with them because he revealed the TRUE creation model.

              I would suggest you start your readings with the ‘church father’ named Origen.
              Who states quite plainly, that they needed to eliminate ‘philosophy and reason’, (which was a Greek ‘heresy’ at the time)…
              This led to a thousand years of the dark ages by the outlawing of science (called sorcery, and witchcraft.) the purging of philosophy, and the murder of many Heretics because they disagreed with the church.

              Just for you… here is fragment of a ‘forbidden’ book, the ‘beginning’ revealed by the mouth of God after Enoch was taken up to heaven and told to write books, this is according to Enoch II, CH 24:
              (this actually reveals the architecture of the Universe. Why would the church trash it? To impose the doctrine of MYSTERY… see how this compares to Genesis, which I consider to be the Cliff notes for Enoch.)

              2nd Enoch, The Book of Secrets
              Chapter 24, XXIV:

              1 And the Lord summoned me, and said to me:
              Enoch, sit down on my left with Gabriel
              2 And I bowed down to the Lord, and the Lord spoke to me:
              Enoch, beloved, all (that) you see, all things that are standing finished I tell to you even before the very beginning, all that I created from non-being, and visible (physical) things from invisible (spiritual).
              3 Hear, Enoch, and take in these my words, for not to My angels
              have I told my secret, and I have not told them their rise, nor my endless realm, nor have they understood my creating, which I tell you to-day.
              4 For before all things were visible (physical), I alone used to go about in the invisible (spiritual) things, like the sun from east to west, and from west to east.
              5 But even the sun has peace in itself, while I found no peace, because I was creating all things, and I conceived the thought of placing foundations, and of creating visible (physical) creation.

              Chapter 25, XXV
              1 I commanded in the very lowest (parts), that visible (physical) things should come down from invisible (spiritual), and Adoil came down very great, and I beheld him, and lo! He had a belly of great light.
              2 And I said to him: Become undone, Adoil, and let the visible (physical) (come) out of you.
              3 And he came undone, and a great light came out. And I (was) in the midst of the great light, and as there is born light from light, there came forth a great age, and showed all creation, which I had thought to create.
              4 And I saw that (it was) good.
              5 And I placed for myself a throne, and took my seat on it, and said to the light: Go thence up higher and fix yourself high above the throne, and be A foundation to the highest things.
              6 And above the light there is nothing else, and then I bent up and looked up from my throne.

              Chapter 26, XXVI
              1 And I summoned the very lowest a second time, and said: Let Archas come forth hard, and he came forth hard from the invisible (spiritual).
              2 And Archas came forth, hard, heavy, and very red.
              3 And I said: Be opened, Archas, and let there be born from you, and he came undone, an age came forth, very great and very dark, bearing the creation of all lower things, and I saw that (it was) good and said to him:
              4 Go thence down below, and make yourself firm, and be a foundation for the lower things, and it happened and he went down and fixed himself, and became the foundation for the lower things, and below the darkness there is nothing else.

              Chapter 27, XXVII
              1 And I commanded that there should be taken from light and darkness, and I said: Be thick, and it became thus, and I spread it out with the light, and it became water, and I spread it out over the darkness, below the light, and then I made firm the waters, that is to say the bottomless, and I made foundation of light around the water, and created seven circles from inside, and imaged (the water) like crystal wet and dry, that is to say like glass, (and) the circumcession of the waters and the other elements, and I showed each one of them its road, and the seven stars each one of them in its heaven
              , that they go thus, and I saw that it was good.
              2 And I separated between light and between darkness, that is to say in the midst of the water hither and thither, and I said to the light, that it should be the day, and to the darkness, that it should be the night, and there was evening and there was morning the first day.

              Chapter 28, XXVIII
              1 And then I made firm the heavenly circle, and (made) that the lower water which is under heaven collect itself together, into one whole, and that the chaos become dry, and it became so.
              2 Out of the waves I created rock hard and big, and from the rock I piled up the dry, and the dry I called earth, and the midst of the earth I called abyss, that is to say the bottomless, I collected the sea in one place and bound it together with a yoke.
              3 And I said to the sea: Behold I give you (your) eternal limits, and you shalt not break loose from your component parts.
              4 Thus I made fast the firmament. This day I called me the first-created [Sunday].

              This is the story of Creation right out of the mouth of God, if you can suspend disbelief for an instant, and accept Enoch’s text. This is a text that is supposedly thousands upon thousands of years old, yet provides for all the scientific elements one needs to define reality as it is known today. The three components, Hyper Light, Hyper Dark, and Chaos, would become the Bipolar Primal Energy to power the Universe and the Chaos to give structure. The frequencies of the light and dark are hyper luminal, they must be to provide the necessary energy to the form of creation. The Creator was the middleman, the modulator, and the great designer of Bipolar Primal energy flow directed with Chaos. But the Creator created a ‘lake’ of water, recent evidence points to the fact that the Universe as we know it, is kind of a bubble. What if the lake represents many millions or billions of Universe Bubbles? So spread out, the light from them dissipates long before we can see it? Are we part of a Multiverse, that have only come into existence in God Time, yet to be, in our time? The mind boggles at this new God Calculus.

              The biggest question here though, is Why was it suppressed? Do religious types just enjoy vagueness and think we are all simpletons, so they had to introduce the concept of 6 days for Creation? 6000 years for all of Creation? There is only one place from where such nonsense comes from, the control of minds by authority figures. It is obvious, that Genesis was written with Moses’ full knowledge of Enoch, if you read it you notice small references to angels that laid with women, and giants and also to Enoch, but nothing specific enough to wrap your mind around. It is known that these books were rejected from the Holy Canon. This alone should make people wonder about what has been withheld, and continues to be withheld from general western knowledge. At the very least, Enoch deserves a place in the Apocrypha in between the testaments.

                You do know that Enoch was completed only 2100 years ago, don’t you? Genesis was written long before Enoch. And what’s that babbling about after the Enoch quote?

                • Piper Michael

                  Fragments of the Books of Enoch were found in the dead sea scrolls.
                  And No, the books of Enoch preceded Genesis, or else, you haven’t read both… you see references to Enoch WITHIN Genesis…

                  I appear to know far more than you, or you are one of the Authorities or one of their deceived minions.
                  Enoch may have had some changes and edits too, since his 366 books were destroyed, that is what evil men do. But, the book of secrets has a scientific bent, that provided the new model of the Unified Field.

                  Read my site, learn, debate. But do not preach at me using broken scriptures written by murderers.

              • Archivist

                I did not preach at you.

                Finding fragments of Enoch in the Dead Sea Scrolls does not mean Enoch is older than Genesis, since the oldest known Old Testament text fragments were also found in the Dead Sea Scrolls. If you find equally old scraps of documents in one pile, how can you say one was written before the other when you don’t have access to the original manuscripts of Moses or Enoch. Supposedly, both were passed down orally before they were set down in writing. There are no actual copies of either book old enough to be originals, so there is no way to date them relative to each other.

                I have read Enoch. I suppose you believe the giants were almost a mile tall. I’d like to see a regular size woman have one of those. Also Enoch writes about Noah. The best I can figure, Enoch died 69 years before Noah was born. And about the only evidence there is of a “scientific bent” is that he actually noticed the seasonal changes of the day length. And it doesn’t take a genius to figure that out. And the drawn out way he tried to explain it sounded like a student trying to make a term paper meet a page number requirement.

                Your website is way out there. As an example, you mention on the Cherokee and Hopi prophecy page something about earth entering the Great Rift. I certainly hope we’re not about to be suddenly flung 300,000 light years closer to the center of the galaxy. New age gobbledegook, meaningless symbols and equations, and replies to comments on your site that are full of anger. The only good thing I found is that you don’t seem to be selling anything. Have you ever tried to wade through James Churchward’s books about Mu? That will expand your gobbledegook horizons. Read all five volumes and the follow-up books by Earll nnd Santesson.

                I don’t mean to sound angry, but on your site you referred to members of my religion as harlots and the Bible as fairy tales written by the Catholic church, when most of it was written long before the Catholic church existed. That’s not a good way to make friends or influence people.

                This is the last time I waste time on this subject area. I have a 600+ page book to revise and publish as a new edition, hopefully before TSHTF so I can make a buck.

                  You’re a well educated and brainwashed liar.

                  Your facts are skewed towards the catholic murderers.
                  Yes, and you didn’t understand anything you read, you find things to manipulate as your facts, that’s fine. As you just also LIED, about the Rift. Nowhere on there do I state that we are going to be flung 300,000 light years closer to the center of the Galaxy.

                  I don’t care about making friends with liars, or people who have their minds made up based on false information and defend the status quo at all costs.
                  As far as meaningless symbols or equations, what would you know about physics? or equations? Obviously nothing.
                  Anger? Yes, against assholes like you who ran the world into the ground and will do anything to stay on top of the heap.

                • Piper Michael

                  PS: I don’t hate Catholics, they are victims of their Church Fathers like all the rest of the Christian community.
                  The books of John were almost thrown out of the canon because they were considered too ‘Gnostic’… the other books thrown out were to cover up their crime of blasphemy. The Pauline and Christ messages are in conflict, deal with it. The Catholics destroyed 95% of Jesus’s private teachings, deal with it. That makes all of us VICTIMS of the true Heresy.
                  Those who created the ‘abomination that makes desolate’, set up in the true temple of God, our minds…
                  Those who created the Sword of Division, as a fulfillment of the Christ prophecy, that he did not come to bring peace, but a sword. WHO WIELDED THAT SWORD SIR?
                  Does God author confusion, and division, conflicting doctrines? Arguments among His own people?
                  NO… it was the Mother of Harlots, and her daughters.

                • Piper Michael

                  PPS: Why are you catholics and protestants scared to death of the so called New Age?

                  It is a New Age that dawned on Dec 21, 2012, a new cycle of the Galaxy. But that is not what you’re afraid of. You’re afraid of the Revelation, the unknown. You know, deep down, that your mystery is dying, and with it, your churches… as the Great Falling away continues and people leave your old dry bones teachings.

                  You’re scared, of your own boogyman.

                I have studied much of the same as you, independently, and for all your naysayers, it is obvious they have not done their homework or devoted any critical thinking to these issues. Always find it fascinating how people will twist facts, or rely on assumptions of others that claim facts, to make their arguments appear to be correct.

                I long ago quit fighting this battle. As Ben Franklin said, ” a fool convinced against his will, will be of the same opinion still”. In any event, I do appreciate your erudite presentations, no matter on how many deaf ears they fall upon. Nice to see some intelligence on this blog site, especially after having to sort through a cacophony of bigoted drivel, false history, and kool-aid drinking fanatics.

      You know, It can continue for more years maybe even another 10 years before the whole things implodes ! The ability to create money and manipulate markets and spread false news and data to mainstream media contributes to the system of lies . But the truth is also many corporations are going to get even richer when this thing does go down .
      Before they pull the plug they will be in the know and position themselves for it .To many players in the game and some must go to make the other ones even stronger .When it occurs, and the smoke clears, they will be their to even solidify their power and control and influence . Yes, it cant go for ever but a whole lot longer than one thinks right now .

      In my youth I knew what hunger was, it was a really bad time in my life that I was finally able to overcome. Being hungry with no way to get food leaves a mark on you that lasts a lifetime.Later in life my family said that I was the one that was prepared for any storm because I was always stocking up. That was pre 2008, now it is known as prepping, and I am a prepper. Today I own my own buisness that has done very well until January 2013. So far this year my profits has dropped by thousands of dollars and there seems to be no end in site. But I am ready for whatever happens, I will stay in my home, I have everything I need here, I know from where the danger will come, and I am ready. And through all the years of strggle my most preacious metal remains my canner.

      The February edition of Imprimis (means “in the first place” in Latin), the monthy newsletter from Hillsdale College, has an excellent article about the taxation policies of Calvin Coolidge.

      Coolidge and Grover Cleveland were the real conservative presidents. Ronald Reagan increased the federal budget by 35% during his tenure. He also doubled the size of government. To call Reagan a conservative is laughable. Ronald Reagan was a socialist. You need to accept this fact.

      • Grippentrog

        Eisen. Your idea of a socialism are odd. You have a hysterical nature and feel the need to get attention by exaggerating. Yours is a sad life and you are disgusting. At least you’re not saying outrageous crap like women should be raped, women are bitches, or calling people names. You seem to have matured to the level of an eighth-grade boy. You should be very proud of yourself keep up the good work.

      • Zoltanne

        Eisenkreuz et al

        I, too, read the latest Imprimis. In fact, I am typing exactly what was written:

        “Calvin Coolidge and the Moral Case for Economy” by Amity Shlaes:

        “…Conservatives long for another Ronald Reagan. But is Reagan the right model? He was of course a tax cutter, reducing the top marginal rate from 70 to 28 percent. But his tax cust — which vindicated supply-side economics by vastly increasing federal revenue — were bought partly through a bargain with Democrats who were eager to spend that revenue. Reagan was no budget cutter — indeed, the federal budget rose by over a third during his administration.”

        But Reagan as a socialist? Maybe you should learn the real definition of socialism instead of relying on the far-left talking points.

    37. Eisenkreuz

      I’ve recently upgraded from the Glock 9 to the Colt 1911A1 .45. The Colt is a much better gun.

      • Grippentrog

        Eisen. Glad to see you bought a new gun. It will come in handy in case you need to rape a girl who is too big to hold down. You are disgusting.

      • Be informed

        @ Eisenkreuz. They had an experiment on the Military Channel about this. While the Glock held more rounds, the Colt 1911 had way more stopping power. In a contest the Colt won hands down over the Glock.

          The .45ACP cartridge is not exclusive to the Government 1911 platform. Sig and H&K in particular, make very fine pistols in .45ACP….and H&K in particular makes them with double-stack higher-capacity magazines.

          I am a big fan of the 1911 Government platform, BUT I will be the first to admit that the 1911 pistol can be very finicky when it comes to ammo. I once owned a 1911 that absolutely would NOT feed my hand-loads reliably. But those same loads could be fired in my H&K USP Compact with 100% reliability.

          When it comes to out-of-the-box reliability in a .45, I would pick an H&K USP or a Sig 220 any day of the week over an out-of-the-box 1911. I’m not saying you can’t find a 1911 that is reliable right out of the box, I’m just saying that you are MORE likely with the H&K and Sig.

          As far as picking between a 9mm and .45…there can be no real argument against the .45 being the better round as far as knock-down power is concerned. But fire-power is also an important factor in a defensive handgun. And a .45 in a high-capacity pistol (12+ rounds) is going to be a big gun. I once owned a Glock in .45 ACP…and it was just a beast to carry.

          For this reason, I actually prefer a Sig 226. 18 and 20 round magazines are readily available (or were before this latest nonsense) and provide a great deal of firepower without a big weight penalty.

          Bear in mind, in a SHTF situation, firepower may be more important than stopping power. You may need to engage multiple targets. And having more rounds between magazine changes could be a tactical advantage.

          Ideally……a pistol should just be something you have until you can get to your rifle. But a lot of people can’t…or don’t carry a rifle in their automobile…and if someone is simply trying to get home, it’s much easier to carry a pistol without drawing attention than it is a rifle. If I am caught away from my home and the freeways are shut down, I want to become as invisible as possible. That’s going to be tough to do with a rifle. So….I’ll take my 226 with 3 extra magazines and try to disappear into the woodwork as I make my way home.

          I am digressing here, but I think this is a matter of overall philosophy of purpose. What do I want the gun for? What kind of scenario am I likely to encounter?

          The .45 is an excellent self-protection weapon. And in normal, everyday situations, is probably the perfect self-defense round.

          But I think we have to start thinking in terms of very “un-normal” situations that we will encounter when it all goes to hell.

      • Paranoid

        You are correct, only real problem with the 1911 is the grip, because the rounds are not staggered in the Mag it’s to long and narrow for most people. If I can use hollow points, I prefer the 9MM Browning Parabellum. MR Browning designed, both although he died before the 9MM was finished. I do not understand why they both don’t have amb safety 9MM seems to have been designed with it in mind.

        • Eisenkreuz

          Took it to the range first time this weekend. Immediately noticed much less recoil, smoother slide, better trigger mechanism on the 1911A1. The grip was fine for me. I still have my Glock but I noticed the stores have .45 ACP in stock but absolutely no 9mm.

      • Smokey

        Got a Glock, but still a Colt fan, I’m a sucker for a Series 70 in 9mm or .45, they just tick along nicely. My initial test fire of any semiauto is a full magazine as fast as I can fire it. The Colts have yet to fail. Glock and Beretta, not the same story.

        • Eisenkreuz

          I wouldn’t walk around with a cocked hammer over a firing pin. I never carry a chambered round anyway. You’re 40 times more likely to shoot yourself with your own gun than to be shot by someone else.

        • Rod_Ansell

          yeah. there’s a shooting instructor on youtube who goes over the problems with the 1911. Apparently, many are low quality and fail alot (in his classroom range).

      • PO'd Patriot

        A gun is a “good gun” if it runs good and you can handle it well (safely and accurately). If it is of smaller caliber, then use it to fight your way to your larger rifle/carbine. Peace is achieved through superior firepower(meaning you have killed ALL of your enemy).

      • Facebook Page

        Giving up your Glock is not an upgrade. Now you have less bullets. More parts.

        AND ONLY THE OLD PEOPLE YOU HATE US THEM. So you better start sucking up or you will be out of parts quick.

      I have now positioned myself with insurmountable levels of debt. Just like the smart politicians in DC, the bankers at the banks, and Ben Bernanke at the FED. I figure those guys are a helluva lot smarter than me so I did the exact same thing.

          Wish in one hand, shit in the other…

          Now? It’s been doing the 1600 hokey pokey for three years or better now. I just can’t get up the stones to put myself back into massive debt over it.

          The second I’m out of debt, of course, I’d say a good 65% of my disposable income goes right into it. Moving upwards to 80% once I got me some food stored up.

          I’ve never understood how anyone can think a piece of paper is worth anything in a calamity where the whole system is collapsing.

          You’ve got to mentally insert yourself into a collapse scenario and then ask yourself what is going to be valuable to you when that happens. Energy stocks? Fiat Federal Reserve Notes?

      @ Everybody. There is more anger on this site than I have ever seen, and this is what the enemies of this site exactly want. BO and his cronies want sites like this that try to get out the truth and help people prepare to fail, or at least not be successful. The audience is very turned off by this fury. The people out there are the ones that make SHTFplan so informative by adding their intelligent conversations. Many that post hate get their comments collapsed and many don’t even read them. So they are wasting their time if they are trying to sway other people’s opinions.

      Those that have this much hate can add to this site, but instead choose to vent fire. I can undersatand this anger as everytime I see these morons on the news talk about how well everyting is going it infuriates me it is so disgusting and the deception is so apparent. To come on to this site and express hate for something is counterproductive to all of our goals, to survive the best we can. I as well as many others ask that those people that have been expressing so much rampant hate, please try to tone it down and try to add something to the site.

      BO and feinsteinless, and the other BAD GUYS enjoy seeing this site taken apart by trolls or those that have legitimate frustration. Just for the benefit of Mac, SHTFplan, the people that visit the site, don’t give any further advantage to BO and those that are trying to poison sites like this that are freedom driven. “BO and others laugh everytime sites like this fail, the reason why BO has a TROLL SQUAD for this site and many others”.

          While some of the trolls may be organized, others are just marginals who vent while hiding behind multiple anonymous handles and would be incapable of facing anyone here in a world without law. Some are dangerous StormFront types.

          We will all find ourselves confronting the various types IRL as things get worse. So, when they attack the site, we get to learn their code words and evil memes. In a way, this is also preparation.

        4.7 Quake Reported in Anza
        It happened along the San Jacinto fault between the San Andreas and the Elsinore faults

          @ possee. I sent a comment earlier with a link to the fault map with the earthquakes on it, I guess Mac hasn’t had time to okay it as of yet. The San Jacinto is a smaller sister to the San Andreas, and it is very likely that either the San Jacinto is ready to break as the northern portion of the fault is also active. OR, the San Andreas is releasing much energy and it has to go somewhere and the San Jacinto runs parallel to it. It could also be the Whittier-Elsinore fault ready to blow.

          What I saw was a bunch of microquakes from a 4.7 to 5.2 size earthquake, other sites rated it higher in magnitude, which is not too common to happen. Usually you see a lot of microquakes spread out like this from a much larger quake or something getting ready to blow. The Microquakes were up to 75 miles away from the san Jacinto on various faults in all directions.

          When Mac posts that comment with that link to the faults and earthquakes you can see what I mean. Even a 6.0 is not usually big enough to get this widespread quake activity away from the fault. This activity tells me that the quake went through the whole fault system and something is warming up that is much bigger. I have seen this before a big earthquake hit other areas, not always by any means, maybe 1/3 to 1/2 the time. Still IF I lived in southern California I would sure be storing up some extra supplies while I still could, it couldn’t hurt.

        @BI….I wouldn’t worry too much about the naysayers and maybe even the naysayers that are political plants. It is the way it is.

        The political blogs are alot worse.

        The old saying, ‘If people like you and say nice things about you, then you are not doing much and they like you because they are ahead of you. But if they say bad things about you it is because you are ahead of them and beating them.’

        In High School, who had the most rumors against them? Was it not the nice looking cheerleader, or the QB? Or, someone that was leading or winning at something. Leadership and success creates jelousy and sometimes hatred.

        The best thing to do is keep living and sharing your ideas. Once they get to you, then they got you. That is what they want. They want to get under your skin and make you leave.

        Don’t change a successful blog too much, or even at all. I have seen many blogs change because people complain about the trolls. They make changes and then their traffic flows go way down. The trolls win!!!! I have seen a sports blog go from 100 comments per day or more go down to just 2 comments per week because of changes they made to get rid of trolls.

        Thus, the best thing to do is just have a good sense of humor and keep going and keep sharing ideas. And mostly, learn to ignore.

          @ Ugly. I agree, don’t change the site at all, it works. I am just saying that we need to concentrate more and more on getting ready, because the time is so short. BO and those that hate freedom are trying to dissolve the site and many others as much as possible before they have an excuse to censor the internet like North Korea does. I just am trying to appeal to the better sense of everyone out there that is NOT A PAID troll, to just try not to play into BO’s plan. The paid trolls are obvious and should be red thumbed and forgotten about.

          Those others that are intelligent, but insist on hating a race, a religion, or whatever are not trolls but very angry and frustrated with the terrible conditions of the country but are dimishing the quality of the site a lot and preventing other brilliant people from commenting with ideas that can help us all a lot. Those are the people I am asking to please consider the betterment of the site and everyone out there and try not to vent so much intense hate. It is a big turn off for those that want to comment, but don’t want to be part of this. We all have such little time and I just wish everyone would see this and try to add what they know as much as possible before…………………

I and others understand the zionist problems with the world, it doesn’t have to be rehashed over and over again. This are many extremely petty comments that helps no one. There is an old saying, don’t sweat the small stuff.

          Every single person out there has something to give and share with others, and we all need this. We are trying to accumulate as much information as possible before the internet is banned, and I just wish that more people that have been going crazy with anger would see this and cut the liability out at least somewhat. There have been hundreds of comments each time, but also dozens, if not a couple hundred sometimes, comments that most people just don’t like at all.

          I would enjoy hearing from the thousands of people that DON’T comment on their ideas of what is coming, how to plan for it, anything that will give us some input and ideas. Many of these wraths of tempers are unfortunately stopping many from commenting. Let’s just hope that others see this and see that their well being as well as everybody’s is not benefitting from their tantrums.

              @ OutWest. I think my wires are getting crossed with everything that is going on. I have been so jittery the past 3-4 days and I don’t know if I am sensing something or just a little whacked out in the head. I can’t put my finger on it, but something is really wrong. This earthquake today in southern California really tells me along with the Prince Edward Islands swarm still continuing that stress on the plates are building. I guess I am just a little sick and tired of seeing these meaningless posts taking up space with the extremely valuable information that people take much of their own time to share with us.

              I see this site as one of the few left that haven’t succumbed to the Big Brother snagging of your E-mail and much other persoanl information to make a comment, and in my own little pathetic way I am trying to protect it and keep it as successful as possible. I didn’t mean you any disrespect at all as you and so many others contribute much to the site.

              I suppose what I am trying to say is that I feel like each day goes by it gets closer to midnight for all of us. Hopefully more and more people will see this and hit it into high gear and throw that extra case of food or water into their shopping baskets, get that extra box of ammo, maybe double check their supplies. Instead of doing a spring cleaning, do a spring survival uptick of their supplies and what they are going to do IF and WHEN it strikes.

              • JustMe

                I was wondering if, in addition to the way you plot the earthquakes, if you sense them. I heard some guy on Coast one night say some people had headaches, or tension, and/or other physical indicators before a quake.

                • Be informed

                  @ JustMe. You bring up an excellent question about sensing earthquakes. Yes I do, and so do everyone else to some degree because we all have electric impulses that fire off in our bodies; our brains and nervous systems. Pressures on the piezoelectric quartz crystals give off a charge, and during the tension build ups before a major earthquake these electric charges grow much stronger. This is one explanation for what is called earthquake lights, minutes, hours, or days before the earthquake strikes. Many people have mistaken these lights for extraterrestrail spacecraft. People and animals can feel these distrubaances even at long distances.

                  Something also with earthquakes are high pitched radio signals given off. Before the 1989 earthquake in San Francisco naval ships picked up what they thought was a Soviet submarine transmitting signals, it was the earthquake building up to bring a day later. Animals, especially dogs can hear these audio signals. Ants often go nuts before earthquakes because of this. People with exceptional hearing often pick this up. This can lead to headaches with people also as a sign of something coming.

                  Another precursor to earthquakes are gasses that come up and people can have all sorts of symptoms from these. Sometimes during calm temperature inversions these gasses can cause extremely eerie looking fogs.

                  One of the most pronounced earthquake feelings come from the planet’s magnetic field being imbalanced. JustOneGuy could talk much more about the Sun’s influnce on the Earth’s magnetic field, but it has look been thought that this can be the straw that breaks the fault’s back. Many birds are very affected by disturbances in the magnetic fields and will fly around in circles or act very disorietated before earthquakes. This can also cause people that are senstive to magnetic field changes to become jittery and “unglued”.

                  These are all physical symptoms that can be traced back to something that has a scientific reason behind it. For way too long people associated this with being psychic or being some clairvoyant, when in reality their bodies were simply a more natural type modified antenna picking up those signals that others could not as easily detect.

                  An excellent book on earthquake prediction using science to figure out why is: “When the Snakes Awake, Animals and Earthquake Prediction”, by Helmut Tributsch, MIT Press.

                  BI,

                  Very interesting stuff. Makes sense, the pineal gland in the brain is a reciever of sorts, probably what is picking up the pre-quake static.

                  A man named Jim Berkland also predicts quakes. One of his markers are the lost pet advertisements, before a quake, pets freak out, and split. His site is sysygyjob.com. Have heard him speak on Coast several times, very interesting process he has. He also uses Moon phase, apogy, and perigee in his predictions.

                  Thank you for your work in this area.

                • JustOneGuy

                  Evening BI, justme,

                  If I may…

                  BI gives very good info on various of the things that we can be affected by, As far as the magnetic field issue, consider this;

                  Magma is actually not a vary poor conductor of electricity. Having said that, though it is very hot (though NOT quite incandescent) when it moves any charge contained within the volume/mass will be carried along with it…including any local aggregations of excess charge. Too,it is the case that like clouds – for whom the friction between particles serves to produce the prodigious charge imbalances we see as lightning – so also similar may be expected for the molten rock moving within the mantle of the Earth. Rememeber, ANY movement of electrical charge (non-neutral) is a current and as such produces it’s own magnetic field, Eh? Thus at times when there is otherwise no significant solar activity occuring we can often measure the changes in the terrestrial magnetic filed and directly ascribe those to various tectonic events. If the sun is very active (unlike now) it can be nearly impossible to say “Ah, A caused B”. To be sure Birds very strongly sense changes in the magnertic field of the Earth…we do too but not quite so overtly. Frequently birds will change course or fly into stationary objects due to these changeing fields. Far from that being the last word on geo-magnetic or geo-electrical effects it is also the case that the accumuulation of stress/strain in the lithospehere (the ‘hard’ stuff we actually stand on) causes ALL kinds of distortions..both electrical and magnetic…BI mentioned the ‘lights’ that are sometimes sen just before or during seismic activity.

                  I had read somewhere a long time ago that people with pacemakers or who otherwise had cardiac problems tended to show up at ER’s much more frequently around times of seismic activity…don’t quote me here on that though …I can’t remember where i read that at.

                  @ BI…How’s it going Friend! I’ve been ‘off-line for 4 days…out of town. I just got back in and I’m just trying to catch-up now! 🙂

        • Rick:)

          We all ended here in our own way. I had always wanted to learn how to play the game, and make my mark in this world.
          And after 07-08, started to really probe and study what had happened. My conclusion, in a nutshell, is that we are living in one giant Ponzi sceme, approaching exponential explosion.
          Everything we have been conditioned to believe since birth, is an illusion.
          Economy and banking. Require constant expansion to function.
          Social Security. World’s biggest Ponzi sceme.
          Pension Plans, particulary Gov. More Ponzi.
          Etc..etc..etc… no need to expand this list….

          So I (we) prepare. We know it’s coming. It has to. We tell our family and share with close friends. They look at us like we need meds. They don’t see what see. And the bullshit keeps getting deeper. And deeper. And evidence mounts, daily. And we start to move away from their game, and work on our game.

          And it hasn’t happened. And it should have. And we get laughed at. And we just can’t believe this house of cards keeps getting higher. WTF.

          And this site, once filled with great tips and advise, is becoming an outlet for the frustrations we are feeling. For me, either give me evidence that all is good, or collapse this sucker, and lets move on. But this limbo, lost decade, is the worst. Save for retirement? Put money away for grandkid’s education? Plan or start a new business? Buy a house? Buy a new car? Invest in 401k?

            @ Rick:),

            The WAITING is maddening isn’t it?

            When I was a teen – in the 70’s – I looked around me and saw VAST wealth, oftimes generational wealth…and I saw poverty as well, sometimes living no more than a few miles from each other. In my mind I KNEW something about the ‘All that I had been told’ was simply WRONG..that, in fact, something was wrong with the world at large. At that age I could scarce even get a clear picture of what I intuited but I knew that many good people I knew busted thier asses and got NO WHERE…EVER.

            In time, especially after the Nixon years a peculiar cynicism began taking hold of me more and more. By the time I had reached my thirty’s I TRUSTED nothing that came from ‘authority’…ever. Proceeding into my forty’s I began to realize that quite nearly everything I had ever been told or seen in the media was a bald-faced, pablum-coated LIE. Few here, I think, have any reason left to beleive that this is going to do other than ‘End Badly’.

            The only question at this point is “How Badly?” Of late, I find my estimation of THAT growing at an almost geometric rate…2, 4, 8 16….256, 512…you get the picture here I’m sure. Those at the TOP are GOING to remain there…over OUR dead bodies…I am now QUITE sure of thier intent in this. My plans now lie in moving to a more northern clime (WAY North) with at least 35 miles between me and my nearest neighbor, same to be implemented within the next 90 days.

            After having seen what I have, I find myself unable to conjure any remaining faith in Humankind’s ability to not undergo self-anihilation…I DON’t want to witness that. Soon I will be in an environment where I will honestly meet whatever challenges arise…I will truiumph and live, or fail and die…but it WILL be honest and I will have no further thought for what will transpire in the greater world. Also, the waiting WILL be OVER for Me. Perhaps that is what is driving everyone, everywhere Mad…the waiting. A part of me almsot wishes it would begin now, immediately…all this shadow-boxing may well lead to insanity for those who cannot escape it. I’ll be around for a bit Friends…but not too long. Best of Luck to those who remain, sincerely. Oh, and YES…limbo sucks, that’s why I’m leaving.

                I used to beleive that one could make a difference locally, yes…but in the fullness of time I came to understand that the depth of the potential Abyss awaiting Humankind in the not too distant future is SO deep that someone, somewhere must begin to think about PRESERVING some of the knowledge that has been so hard-won over the last several thousand years…and be prepared to bring that forth again should things go ‘badly’. In this sense I am thinking much like ‘Archivist’ here at the site…who’s efforts I much ADMIRE.

                To that end I have packed up ALL my college text (over 125 and with which I am closely familiar) and will soon have both them, myself and those I care for in a region which will afford us the maximum conceiveable safety in North America. That is of course in addition to ALL the other neccessary preperations – on ALL levels – the road has been difficult thus far in acquiring such but here, now as I near final complettion I AM satisfied with what has been assembled. Some of us will make a choice to stay and remain within the construct and will so witness it’s death-throes….I do NOT envy you that choice, still I wish you the best and my prayers go with all who do so…

      Didn’t they have a 100 year charter from 1913-14…?

      Just wondering. (The clowns in DC aren’t worried about the debt. This could be their coup de grace … the Lincoln option… ie instead of ‘devaluation’, they have a currency conversion to US Treasury notes.)

        It is strange that but a very few no one discusses this end of year issue. I have seen many hopo plans trying to figure out what will happen and some of them are quite amazing.

        You stated one of the plans I saw. Just rename it and start over. We have the biggest guns so we should make the rules.

          It makes the most sense to me…because at that point, those worrying about FRN’s vs Gold, and tangibles will win bigtime. Simply because part of it will be to revalue gold and silver and pretty much everything.

          I can see gold being revalued north of 10-50k
          but, they get to continue The Game…
          Unfortunately, I think it will not be paper notes, but digital currency… total control over everything.
          Very… um…. prophetic.

        Piper. I researched that, hearing that the charter was for 100 years and had to be renewed this year.

        Best I could conclude; There is no charter. THEY can and will do what they want, for as long as they want and in whatever fashion they see fit.

        And my conclusion is something I can easily accept. That is how TPTB operate….

        So I let it go…

        Piper Michael…I have been looking for this for a couple of years but cannot find anything about a 100 year charter except rumors. I DID find out that the Federal Reserve was granted a 20 year charter when they usurped the money system. This was changed (by legislation) in the 1920s to an open ended charter that can only be revoked by Congress. I don’t know the US Code that relates this offhand, but I remember looking and finding this much in US Code. I think the 100 year charter is mostly an internet myth.

          Ok,
          Thanks guys. I had an inkling of that… but the best way to find out for sure is to ask, and you both have confirmed my thoughts.
          The PTB, do whatever they want… and they will, constitution be damned…

      Be Informed, your points are well taken about not feeding the trolls. On topic, I may be mistaken, but i feel that economic collapse may only be weeks away. I’d be surprised if we make it into the summer. Went shopping again over the weekend and still prepping all the way til’ the last minute. Last night, I watched “The Hunger Games” and I had a hard time watching it all the way through. The scenario in the movie was that of a modern-day Roman Empire turning innocent people against each other for sport; for entertainment. I couldn’t keep my supper down. I know, I know, it was only a movie, but the scenario could very well become reality if we don’t stand up and fight the NWO. Some nights I break down over what’s coming to this land. Last night was no exception. However, I know where I stand and what I’ll do when the time comes. Everybody get all the supplies you can now while there’s still time and the FRNs will still get you anything. Best wishes to all. Braveheart

      Ted Gundy,an 86-year-old World Wat II sniper, was awarded the “black hat,” one of the highest awards of the marksmanship unit, during his visit to Ft. Benning, Ga. He got a few other surprises along the way.
      He was presented with an exact replica of the rifle he used during the Battles of the Buldge and Bastogne, a 1903 Springfield A4 sniper rifle. It must have seemed like old home week as he hit the target — three hits for three shots — at three hundred yards — three football fields.
      He was then given the opportunity to try modern equipment on a target 1,000 yards away. The Remington 700 is, according to the video, “one of the most accurate rifles in the world.”
      At 1,000 yards, for every mile per hour of crosswind, the bullet moves 10 inches. Just like with the WWII-era Springfield at 300 yards, Gundy hit three for three with the Remington at 1,000.
      Once you got it, you don’t lose it.

      Durango Kidd, I’m afraid you’re right about war not being far away. Man, I wish all this crap would just go away, but we all know it’s not. If anyone tries aqnything on me, you’re damned right i will engage. NOMI CATIMF Braveheart

          LMAO! I have the body and aerobics of a 40 year old man in GOOD shape. I am at the Club every day working out, swimming, and playing ball.

          I have always been an athlete and never more so than now! If it weren’t for a little gray in my hair I would be mistaken for a much younger man.

          PS. I date women HALF my age. They don’t seem to mind! LMAO! 60+ is the new 40 !!!

      Wonder if Ted Gundy got his VA letter saying he’s unable to own a firearm yet from those assholes in Washington. Great video – thanks for sharing.

      Awoken, welcome aboard and you do raise a very important point about the nuclear plants. They all supposedly have backup power systems in place for cooling the rods and so forth, but if the backup systems fail, it looks like all bets are off.

      • Just a thought

        You really need to get out more, grow a garden, meet new people, maybe even try online dating BH.

      • Rod_Ansell

        Not really. USA nuke plants are designed to scram (shut down). The power dies, the control rods drop into the mix and shut ‘er down. Well, if gravity dies then you could be in trouble. 🙂 Cherynoble? Not so. Those Soviets seemed scientific but I guess they were not practical. Seems Americans can not only solve the equation but also consider the consequences. BTW, Chernyoble (I know there’s a y in there somehwere!) they bypassed lots of other security systems in order to get the thing to blow; so, honestly, the did design the system to be safe but forgot the number #1 rule: idiot proof. Never assume the engineers, scientists, or politicians won’t be idiots.
        If power dies in a nuclear power plant (huh????) then you would just end up without power and with a “crapped up” (the term they use) reactor where you’d need to keep the safety fence up to protect the curious cats.

      Off article topic: In a survival book from the late 60’s was a reference to Washington’s vision…I thought that it was referring to Washington’s hopes for the future of the Republic. I did a search and discovered I was wrong. From US History.org I found the true answer. There is no proof that this was an actual event. Whether you think it has merit or not….I was moved beyond words by what I read….
      I apologize for taking up a great deal of space by posting it, but I think it is well worth it….

      Washington’s Vision
      In the National Tribune, 1880, an article appeared giving an account of the “Vision of Washington” at Valley Forge. The account was told by a gentleman named Anthony Sherman, who supposedly was at Valley Forge during the winter of 1777-78. The story has been published several times.

      Some people will say that it is substantiated by the fact that a copy of the account is in the Library of Congress. This argument of authenticity is misleading in and of itself. The Library of Congress has copies of anything published. That does not indicate accuracy of the content.

      I am unaware of any eighteenth-century evidence that corroborates this story. The soldier mentioned as having a first-hand account of the “Vision,” Anthony Sherman, was a soldier in the Continental Army. However, according to his pension application, written by him, he states that he was at Saratoga under the command of Benedict Arnold at the end of 1777 and only joined the main forces in 1778 in New Jersey just before the Battle of Monmouth.

      Anthony Sherman wrote:

      You doubtless heard the story of Washington’s going to the thicket to pray in secret for aid and comfort from God, the interposition of whose Divine Providence brought us safely through the darkest days of tribulation. One day, I remember it well, when the chilly winds whistled through the leafless trees, though the sky was cloudless and the sun shown brightly, he remained in his quarters nearly all the afternoon alone. When he came out, I noticed that his face was a shade paler than usual. There seemed to be something on his mind of more than ordinary importance. Returning just after dusk, he dispatched an orderly to the quarters who was presently in attendance. After a preliminary conversation of about an hour, Washington, gazing upon his companion with that strange look of dignity which he alone commanded, related the event that occurred that day.

      “George Washington’s Vision”
      This afternoon, as I was sitting at this table engaged in preparing a dispatch, something seemed to disturb me. Looking up, I beheld standing opposite me a singularly beautiful female. So astonished was I, for I had given strict orders not to be disturbed, that it was some moments before I found language to inquire the cause of her presence. A second, a third and even a fourth time did I repeat my question, but received no answer from my mysterious visitor except a slight raising of her eyes.

      By this time I felt strange sensations spreading through me. I would have risen but the riveted gaze of the being before me rendered volition impossible. I assayed once more to address her, but my tongue had become useless, as though it had become paralyzed.

      A new influence, mysterious, potent, irresistible, took possession of me. All I could do was to gaze steadily, vacantly at my unknown visitor. Gradually the surrounding atmosphere seemed as if it had become filled with sensations, and luminous. Everything about me seemed to rarefy, the mysterious visitor herself becoming more airy and yet more distinct to my sight than before. I now began to feel as one dying, or rather to experience the sensations which I have sometimes imagined accompany dissolution. I did not think, I did not reason, I did not move; all were alike impossible. I was only conscious of gazing fixedly, vacantly at my companion.

      Presently I heard a voice saying, “Son of the Republic, look and learn,” while at the same time my visitor extended her arm eastwardly, I now beheld a heavy white vapor at some distance rising fold upon fold. This gradually dissipated, and I looked upon a stranger scene. Before me lay spread out in one vast plain all the countries of the world — Europe, Asia, Africa and America. I saw rolling and tossing between Europe and America the billows of the Atlantic, and between Asia and America lay the Pacific.

      “Son of the Republic,” said the same mysterious voice as before, “look and learn.” At that moment I beheld a dark, shadowy being, like an angel, standing or rather floating in mid-air, between Europe and America. Dipping water out of the ocean in the hollow of each hand, he sprinkled some upon America with his right hand, while with his left hand he cast some on Europe. Immediately a cloud raised from these countries, and joined in mid-ocean. For a while it remained stationary, and then moved slowly westward, until it enveloped America in its murky folds. Sharp flashes of lightning gleamed through it at intervals, and I heard the smothered groans and cries of the American people.

      A second time the angel dipped water from the ocean, and sprinkled it out as before. The dark cloud was then drawn back to the ocean, in whose heaving billows in sank from view. A third time I heard the mysterious voice saying, “Son of the Republic, look and learn,” I cast my eyes upon America and beheld villages and towns and cities springing up one after another until the whole land from the Atlantic to the Pacific was dotted with them.

      Again, I heard the mysterious voice say, “Son of the Republic, the end of the century cometh, look and learn.” At this the dark shadowy angel turned his face southward, and from Africa I saw an ill omened specter approach our land. It flitted slowly over every town and city of the latter. The inhabitants presently set themselves in battle array against each other. As I continued looking I saw a bright angel, on whose brow rested a crown of light, on which was traced the word “Union,” bearing the American flag which he placed between the divided nation, and said, “Remember ye are brethren.” Instantly, the inhabitants, casting from them their weapons became friends once more, and united around the National Standard.

      “And again I heard the mysterious voice saying “Son of the Republic, look and learn.” At this the dark, shadowy angel placed a trumpet to his mouth, and blew three distinct blasts; and taking water from the ocean, he sprinkled it upon Europe, Asia and Africa. Then my eyes beheld a fearful scene: From each of these countries arose thick, black clouds that were soon joined into one. Throughout this mass there gleamed a dark red light by which I saw hordes of armed men, who, moving with the cloud, marched by land and sailed by sea to America. Our country was enveloped in this volume of cloud, and I saw these vast armies devastate the whole county and burn the villages, towns and cities that I beheld springing up. As my ears listened to the thundering of the cannon, clashing of sword, and the shouts and cries of millions in mortal combat, I heard again the mysterious voice saying, “Son of the Republic, look and learn” When the voice had ceased, the dark shadowy angel placed his trumpet once more to his mouth, and blew a long and fearful blast. “Instantly a light as of a thousand suns shon
